Here's a live dance act worth going Crazy for..

Byline: BRENDAN MCKEOWN & MARK WHYTE

They're one of the best live dance bands on the planet and tomorrow night Crazy P swing by the Basement in Derry to headline a gig of rare beauty for Pincer Movement.

Crazy P go all the way back to 1996 when Jim Baron and Chris Todd discovered a mutual love of bending and reshaping old records from many different genres and a production partnership was born in the backstreets of Nottingham.

After a couple of releases under various monikers, the work attracted the attention of iconic deep house label Paper Recordings and the creature that is Crazy P was born.

Their first four albums A Nice Hot Bath With (1999), The Wicked Is Music (2002), 24 Hour Psychedelic Freakout (2003) and A Night On Earth (2004), coupled with the addition of live band members Tim Davies, Matt Klose and the vocals of the inimitable Danielle Moore saw Crazy P gain acclaim, record sales, DJ gigs and, most pertinently, live shows across the world.

Equally at home on huge outdoor festival stages in Australia or basement sweatboxes in East London, Crazy P have made their name with a unerring combination of lushly structured songs and live power, while never forgetting their roots on the dance floors of the late 90s house, disco, and soul clubs.

Just released on 2020 Vision, new album When We On is already being hailed as one of their finest and tomorrow night's show is sure to be an utter belter. Doors are 9pm and tickets PS8 and PS10.
