[dropcap]A[/dropcap]fter seven albums and almost two decades of blessing us discerning musical folk with the very best in disco and house that the UK has to offer, the stars have aligned and Crazy P has collided with Classic in the outer hemispheres of sonic glory. ‘Truelight EP’ demonstrates fully the unique and superior disco/house hybrid sound that has carved Crazy P’s legend into the bedrock of both those beloved genres.
‘In My Hands’ follows some darker twists with a haunting crunching bassline and organ stabs. ‘One True Light’ provides cosmic clusters of subtle beats that sparkle and shimmer, with plenty of that well-versed groove that seems so effortless to the Crazy P crew. Topping it all off are remixes of both tracks, one by Crazy P member Hot Toddy aka Chris Todd, drawing on the memorable snaking bottom line of ‘In My Hands’ and amping up the production with echoes of Donna Summer seduction. Keeping it firmly within the camp, co-founder Ron Basejam remixes ‘One True Light’, taking the tempo down to create lush, psychedelic soundscapes. There’s no doubt, Crazy P are stronger and more relevant than ever.
