Crazy P ‘Age Of The Ego Remixes’ 

Affirming their status as dedicated tastemakers, Crazy P call on some of their favourite producers and deliver 12 immaculate remixes of their beloved 2019 album, ‘Age Of The Ego’ A cosmic, vibe heavy, and eclectic journey through low-slung, groovy Balearic, big room disco, deep house, lo-fi, and beyond with artists the trio have admired, and friends encountered along the way. 

‘Age Of The Ego’ is a very dear album to Crazy P. “We poured a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this baby so we were keen to get the remix package right. Everyone was chosen by us as fans in the first instance, and together we’ve achieved exactly what we set out to build. A diverse sounding package that doesn’t compromise on quality”

Gerd Janson’s 80’s italo-esque remix of ‘We Will F**k You Up’ kicks things off full throttle as a debut digital single on June 8th. Other focal tracks come from Medlar ft Dele Sosimi who provide a hip-swinging rendition of ‘The Witness’. Hot Toddy (Crazy P’s Chris Todd) ups the ante for the dancefloor on ‘Love is With You’ whilst retaining the lushness and the sentiment of the original, and other Crazy P co-founder James Baron aka Ron Basejam delivers a disco stomping four to the floor rendition of ‘Is This All That It Seems’. Another stand out contribution comes from the late Soulphiction who so sadly passed between submitting his remix and its release. His low slung take on ‘Barefooted’ is a roller-boogie funk jam, heavy on the bass and congas, guaranteed to make you shimmy. 

Crazy P – “The very sadly missed Michel Baumann. We’ve been huge fans of his work over the years. He always had a great ear for sampling, bringing obscure elements from disco, soul, funk and film to his productions that have always oozed emotion and atmosphere. It’s an honor to have a truly authentic remix from him.” 

When speaking about the rest of the package, it’s clear Crazy P have chosen artists they have a deep appreciation for.

DJ Nature – a king of the underground, injects a whole new boldness into ‘SOS’ with a kick drum that launches you into space. Ilija Rudman has an inimitable style, the simplicity of his remix is key to its beauty. Riding high with his releases on Phantasy, we knew James Welsh would give us some toughness, and he certainly delivered with aplomb on ‘This Fire’, alongside Mancunian/Salfordian collective See Thru Hands’ whose version infuses a fresh, deep, durgy, rock-disco sound. Somethin’ Sanctified’s analog drenched house productions we’ve loved over the years, and the duo have stripped this mix right back, the vocoder bit on the end is well worth the wait!” 

The appetite for Crazy P’s supremely fun and exquisite live and DJ performances is still high, continuing to leave their mark on the landscape of British dance music with a mammoth tour schedule in 2022 to lay down ‘Age Of The Ego’ original material and remixes all summer, ​​with some new music thrown in for good measure
