David Grant – Crookies

May 15, 2016 in Singles

David Grant Crookies 18-09 RecordsI did say tonight’s selection was gonna be ‘up’… though billed as tech-house on the hype sheet, this single-track release from Scottish label 18-09 Records is as close to slammin’ techno as TIWWD ever gets! Still good, though.

The key here is that, while Crookies may sport fierce synths straight out of the darkest corners of 1992 rave, and while those synths may build into a full-on acid assault as the track progresses, the BPM count is kept to a sensible 123 and the jaunty bassline that accompanies them has plenty of roll in its hips. The result is a track that’ll do damage on tech-house, techno and tuffer house floors alike.

Out: This week
