Three Tracks That Make The Crookers the Best in Electro

Last year the Chemical Brothers released an excellent album called We Are the Night.  It quickly became one of my favorite electronic albums for a few reasons; really great production, varied style and genre within the album, and a hilarious track called the Salmon Dance.  For a time, this was a bit of an anthem with my friends and I, as well as a running joke – “Fish.. pay attention to the moon??  WOW!”.  Check this video out and  you’ll understand:

Fast forward to spring 2008.  MSTRKRFT and Z-Trip release a collaboration called Soundclash of the Titans.  The first half by Z-Trip again became a bit of an anthem for my friends and I (read: I spent a lot of time annoying my friends with my rendition of the following song “Hipsters Are the New Jocks”)

Also in Soundclash of the Titans was a remix of the Salmon Dance that absolutely blew my mind, and has since caused me to take my dj’ing in a new direction – fidget.  I immediately recognized the iconic “WOW!” that The Crookers had sampled over the new electro beat driving the song.

After further investigation, I was delighted to find many more great tracks by this talented duo from Italy.  Here are three for your enjoyment!  Let me know what you think of them with a comment – I particularly like the Busy P remix (here’s a hilarious and very high energy video of The Bloody Beetroots dropping it at their Dim Mak Tuesdays gig!)

And now for the tracks!
