HARD NYC: Crookers, Major Lazer, Rusko, Jack Beats & Destructo

hardnyc1The Bowery Presents HARD NYC: Crookers, Major Lazer, Rusko, Jack Beats & Destructo at Terminal 5, October 10th.

Crookers are DJ Phra and Bot, two Italian DJ’s/producers who met in 2003. Drawing from influences of house, hip hop and beyond, Crookers blend their beats with fidget house finesse. Crookers have sleazed out dance floors with a catalogue of original tracks that startle and surprise, but it’s their work as remixers that have made them one of the most sought out in the business. The duo has reworked tracks for the likes of Kid Cudi, The Chemical Brothers, Armand Van Helden, Bonde do Role, Brodinski and Chromeo. The result is a twisted blend of glitch, tech and distortion.

Major Lazer are uber-producers Diplo and Switch, who are out to subdue the forces of evil with a batch of futuristic dancehall bangers. Recorded at Tuff Gong Studios in Jamaica, the product of this collaboration, Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do (out now on Downtown Records), runs global pop culture through the filter of Major Lazer’s particular brand of 80′s-inspired digital dancehall – at once an homage to a bygone era and a look to the future of dance music.
