After ten glorious years, Death Disco is officially shaking off the glitter and wiping off the face paint. Yes, we’re closing the curtains, pulling up the covers and sleeping off ten soul-swaddling years of electro-disco debauchery.

But not before we’ve given you two blow-out parties, bien sûr.

Representing where we were and where we went, our final two line-ups are, we hope, deliciously judicious in terms of giving a little something to new fans and old. Crookers, on Sat 24th Nov, will deliver an additive-fuelled evening of fidget fun and cheap electro thrills, and we couldn’t think of anyone better than Jacques Lu Cont, overlord of the euphoric electro remix and the man single-handedly responsible for making us want a portable keyboard more than anything in the world, to take us into our final hour on Friday 7th December. Throw some extra special production treats into the mix and you’ve got two unmissable nights.

There may be tears. There will most definitely be fun. And then… then, there’ll be the sort of sleep that only comes after a ten-year long party.


After working hard for their title as the kings of hip-house with remixes of Busy P and Chromeo, 2008′s Day & Night vs Kid Cudi and their debut album Tons Of Friends (on which their ‘friends’ included Major Lazer, Miike Snow, Soulwax and Drop The Lime), Crookers smashed back into consciousness last year with their new project, Dr Gonzo. Turns out, they still have tons of friends, working with Savage Skulls, Neoteric, Wax Motif, His Majesty Andre, Lazy Ants and Keith & Supabeatz to create an album with the same addictive bounce and relentless punch of former Crookers stuff, plus a lot more influences.

Formerly a duo, Phra and Bot recently announced that the pair would be splitting to concentrate on their own material, with Phra continuing to head Crookers as a solo show.
