With seven albums and twenty years of experience under their belt, some artists and bands may be happy to call it a day — not Crazy P. In fact, this house/disco live act is doing better than ever, they even just performed live for Boiler Room Bali. For the past two years Crazy P have been touring manically with shows spanning the globe, astoundingly they also found time to release ‘Truelight’, a four-track EP which entails two remixes, courtesy of Hot Toddy and Ron Basejam. Their most recent album ‘Walk Dance Talk Sing’ which was released in 2015, also received fantastic critical acclaim and gave the band all the material they could possibly need leading up to the past two years of touring.
When visiting Australia, locals will be treated by a variety of DJ sets and DJ/live performances across the country for what is going to undoubtedly be another spell of uplifting disco, house and soulful pop by one of the leading live acts the industry has to offer.
Seven albums, a career spanning over 20 years and yet Crazy P remain stronger and more relevant than ever. Funny how the tides of time turn, and how the sounds of a typically British type of house and disco are now more du jour then ever before. Way before the rise in prominence of disco, house and soulful pop Crazy P have spearheaded the revival (and perpetuation) of these sounds since 1997.
Their seventh album ‘Walk Dance Talk Sing’ was released in 2015, to great acclaim, on their own imprint and in partnership with !K7. In the time since the songwriting, production, and performing nucleus of Danielle Moore, Chris Todd, and James Baron have been constantly touring with their DJ and Soundsystem sets and live band shows. Regarded as one of dance music’s finest and genuinely live, performers out there.
Crazy P have managed to both uphold the heritage of soul, musicianship and songwriting that is an essential part of the fabric of house and disco. They stay current, letting those fundamental elements of the sound inform and mark out their take on the club floors and younger audiences that they consistently turn inside out. Their never diminishing love of a dancefloor sits firmly alongside their immaculate craft of writing and production. New audiences are, without exception, blown away the first time they see a Crazy P live show.
2016’s touring schedule took the band around the world, culminating with a live show in Bali, streamed on the prestigious Boiler Room. This year Crazy P proudly released their ‘Truelight’ EP on the legendary Classic. This was followed by a summer of festivals and an ambition realised when the band recently performed live at Londons Roundhouse.
It is widely expected we will see new material emerge in 2018. The anticipation is set and the bar is high…
