The label enlist hometown hero Crooked Man for the B side business here, and the techno hero obliges with a pair of ferocious speaker tweaking reshapes.
Dark and cavernous, the 'Real Crooked' mix combines wall shaking bass, jacking drums and bloodless riffs into a smoke and strobe stomper, repurposing Azeem's vocal as a haunting refrain.
The dance floor paranoia continues on the 'Crooked Girl, Crooked Boy' mix, a sparse and dissociative take on the original equipped with demented dub FX and some serious bass weight.
An anthem in its original form, and a main room monster on the remix tip. Toko are back.
STAFF COMMENTSMatt says: Second Toko release of the year and I gotta say we're really enjoying the renaissance! With star signings Si Brad & Crooked Man we are in safe hands for anthemic, end-of-holiday bliss. Don't forget this was supposed to come out in summer when it would make a lot more sense! To any DJs playing the southern hemisphere at the moment - your time.
