about

Crooked Man’s debut album was one of the landmark releases for DFA in 2016. Crooked Man is Richard Barratt of Sheffield England, one half of Bleep music pioneers Sweet Exorcist (Warp Records).

This remix collection is Volume 1 in a series of forthcoming collections that revisit key tracks from the LP, reinventing them into headier dance floor explorations, without abandoning the undeniable pop hooks that set this whole release apart from your typical full length dance LP.

Remixers include:

Whatever/Whatever remixing I'll Be Loving You. Whatever/Whatever are a remix duo that includes famed DJ and musicians Justin Strauss & Bryan Mette.

Juan Maclean remixing epic album closer Happiness. The vocals for Happiness were actually sung by Amy Douglas, also the singer in Peach Melba with Juan Maclean. So this remix brings the everything full circle in a tidy way.

Barker & Baumecker remixing Fools & Fanatics. This duo are recognized musical leaders in the Berlin techno scene originating out of the world of Ostgut Ton Records and the Berghain club. 2016 saw them releasing their epic 2nd LP entitled Turns.

Remixes forthcoming for Volume 2 include Tee Mango, Luke Solomon & Lovefingers.

Crooked Man is currently hard at work on the follow up album, due out in 2017 on DFA Records.
