Crookers Feat. WILLS – Withdrawals (Radio Edit)
There’s been a mixed bag of releases from Italian club staple Crookers this year, one again spotlighting the blatant disregard for repetition that has made him a welcome and increasingly indispensable asset to the European club circuit. Where the Jeremih-assisted ‘I Just Can’t’ turned the dial up with a subtle commercial focus, his debut single for Defected sees the renowned producer add another heavyweight imprint to his already ornamented discography at the final stretch of 2015.
With WILLS providing a strained yet perfectly executed vocal line, ‘Withdrawals’ shows a far more stripped back and percussively tuned side to Francesco Barbaglia’s sound than we’ve come to expect of late, but one that ultimately hits the spot. There’s enough of the Italian talent’s chunky studio dexterity to keep fans of old at bay here, but this is the closest we’ve heard anyone on the European front come to an unpretentiously accessible club hit in a long time, let alone from the ever unpredictable Crookers.
Release Date: November 30
