Whutup blog! Sorry to leave you with nothing 2 step 2 for a minute, you can check the MySpace blog to catch up on all the news. So a year ago, Skinny Friedman of the Philadelphyinz and I started a party called Player’s Club (1st & 3rd Weds at Pianos 158 Ludlow NYC) and tomorrow she turns one year old! Skinny has been slicing the country up in an wrapped Alize tour bus with the homie Izza Kizza as his tour DJ for the past month, but he will be in the building tomorrow for the celebration! The great response to our first PC mix made us want to do another for the anniversary. Check below for the full tracklisting + a surprise.
Tommie Sunshine hit us up a while back with a hankerin to put “Right Hand Hi” over some Black Box. Who are we not to oblige? Our mailing list got first crack at this tune today (sign up on the right!!!!) but no reason why our blog friends shouldn’t get a chance to peep this TS DJ edit too. Enjoy!

Slamming, jacking, sweating, pumping, thumping, EXPLODING… yep, must be Crookers.
The Italian DJ/production duo has been synonymous with all manner of intense dancefloor activity over the past few years, crafting absolutely massive (and massively influential) original tracks, along with remixes for some of the biggest names in pop. The Crookers’ version of Kid Cudi’s “Day N Nite” snowballed from an underground club must-have to an international smash hit – so we’re obviously, undeniably proud to present this follow-up Fool’s Gold release.
The stacked “What Up Y’all” EP features the first official release of the title track (now properly mixed and mastered, with a shouted hook from Izza Kizza) as well as a hyperactive juke remix of Crookers’ anthem “Knobbers” by DJ Gant-Man, and two incredible takes on the follow-up Cudi collab “Embrace The Martian” courtesy of UK beat maestro Seiji – a crunching, hard-hitting “booty mix” and a squelchy acid version that take the dreamy original to two new heights. Take a listen to the acid mix right now at RCRD LBL.
You can also snag the dub version at Seiji’s blog. Grab these now and brace yourself for whatever the Crooks are cooking up next on their debut LP, coming soon.
