With electronic music growing more and more popular by the day, it’s not uncommon to see musicians hang up their instruments and try their hand at producing. PJ Wolf, better known as THIEF, traded in his guitar for synthesizers, and make a name for himself as a rising star in electronic-pop music. His contemporary minimal sound is reminiscent of Miike Snow and Frank Ocean, and with support from tastemaking outlets like the UK’s BBC Radio 1 and Australia’s triple j, THIEF has been on an absolute tear as of late. His latest track, “Crazy,” is an indie dance masterpiece, featuring shimmering synth patterns, a memorable vocal hook, and a bubbly bassline that gives the track an undeniably smooth groove.
JackLNDN, the UK’s remix extraordinaire, was tasked with the challenge with giving THIEF’s track his own personal re-imagination, and the talented musician completely flipped the track on its head. JackLNDN brings “Crazy” back to the 70s, infusing the track with a funk-inspired disco vibe with an infectious guitar riff.
