Get Rich or High Trying EP Sep 12 2012
Kings of the tropical house movement, Carli Lof and Mans Glaeser of Savage Skulls share production duties on this record with Hugo Douster for two brand new tracks. Both the originals here walk the fine line between pop and underground sounds, matching superbly clean production with great guest vocal spots. “Bad Gal” teams the crew up with the one and only swedish pop diva Robyn for a dance floor pop explosion. Robyn’s vocals soar over the tropical percussion laid out by Savage Skulls and Douster with the kind of lady friendly lyrics that remind us of early 90s dancehall. Crookers flip the track on its head with their remix. Combining their signature use of synths with a hand clap infused beat, this one’s ready to destroy dance floors.
“Rendezvous” starts off with the crack of a whip and doesn’t let up. Guest vocalist Sprinkle Juice provides the seductive hook that fits perfectly over the ever changing drum beat. J-Wow of Barauka Som Sistema then dirties it up with big stabs and vocals chops.
