Last year’s maiden voyage of HARD’s Holy Ship! was a floating rave for the history books. So it’s only right that FG returned for the sequel (note the two exclamation points) and take Holy Ship!! over pirate-style once again. A-Trak, Oliver, Tommy Trash, Crookers, Dillon Francis, Baauer, RL Grime, Brodinski and even more of your favorite DJs got in on the action, check Josh Wehle’s recap video to see just how wavy it got. And for more aquatic action, peep Rukes’ photo galleries from days one, two and three.
Our recent remix contest for A-Trak & Zinc’s Natalie Storm-featuring “Like The Dancefloor” brought in a slew of great entries, with Bad Mr Kitty’s laser-laced contribution named the victor. You can get it now on Beatport!

Ever since Crookers first burst onto the scene with their uniquely muscular, totally tweaked take on dance music, they have been a fixture in the international scene, whether remixing gigantic pop stars, collaborating with underground heroes as Dr Gonzo, or plain ol’ rocking every festival known to man with a pair of USB sticks and an appetite for destruction. For the new Bowser EP on Fool’s Gold, their first original release as Crookers in almost two years (!!!), the duo returns with a brand-new take on the chunky club cuts that made you fall in love with them in the first place. From the title track’s tear-out techno madness to the stadium buildups of “Trillex” to the atomic hip-house of “Turn The Lights On” (a collab with Philly fast rap master STS), Crookers once again redefine “bangers” in their own image. Go crazy with ‘em! Read More

The guys have previewed some of the tracks on their mix for HARD’s Day Of The Dead, which goes down in LA this November. Download it now from hardfest.com (scroll down to the email box on right), and stay tuned for more Bowser bits coming your way…and more Crookers shows in North America too! Read More
