Saturday night, Mad Decent records resident producers, Crookers brought their one-of-a-kind Italian house/hip hop music to Mighty.
Nisus, a San Francisco native who has made a name for himself opening for some of the bigger acts in the city warmed up the crowd with a set that emphasized bass and drops.
Crookers came on to a packed house and came out of the gate blasting. They have one of the most interesting live styles I’ve seen—with bass heavy house and quickly transitioning into an uptempo electro hip hop.
Innovative and progressive, Crookers straddle the line that separates hip-hop and house to create a unique balanced sound. Throughout the night, the DJs dropped a few songs that took an already excited crowd to the next level; their “Everybody Nose” remix got the crowd hype along with their remix of Kid Cudi’s “Day N Nite.”
Crookers have been around since 2009, releasing several mixes and tracks via Twitter and SoundCloud. Their new EP is scheduled for release soon on Mad Decent, which should propel them into more higher profile gigs.
