Waking up with Phra: Crookers

In a downtown hotel lobby in Barcelona, we spoke with Phra of the globetrotting superstars Crookers prior to their humongous Sonar by night event.

Most famous for their crossover hit ‘Day n Night’ (actually a remix, the success of which completely eclipsed Kid Cudi’s original), Crookers combine a cheeky approach to sonic editing with growly synths and 4/4 rhythms, effectively turning house music into a new, mutated beast with every knob tweak.

Listen to the interview below and hear Phra tell us about meeting Co-crooker, Bot, breaking bassline and twisted house from the underground into pop, and the new Crookers album.
