Champion Ft. Princess Nyah – Crazy (w/Terror Danjah & D.O.K Remix) – Formula Records(Stream)


Once again UK Funky wunderkind Champion serves up another sultry vocal cut – this time enlisting the services of songstress Princess Nyah. ‘Crazy’ begins with a cluster of bongo drums and and colourful funk synths that escalate into a flurry of bassline stabs and groove-laden percussion.

Princesss Nyah’s vocals sit comfortably on this production but still work well with the rugged drum programming that Champion has mastered since his ‘Motherboard’ debut in 2011. As Princess Nyah vents her frustration at a disloyal member of the opposite sex, the low end basslines become more intense and boisterous and this only adds to the smooth but gritty nature of the track.

On the flipside Hardrive head honcho Terror Danjah teams up with D.O.K for a haunted re-rub that still retains the danceable element of the original, but comes with the signature Terror Danjah cackle and gremlins soundbytes. The pair do their best to increase the tracks intensity with 16-bar beat pattern switch ups and haunting chords throughout which gives the track a unexpected but welcomed Grime makeover.

Having been a staple in sets from the likes of Scratcha, Roska, Dusk & Blackdown and Target towards the end of 2011, ‘Crazy’ has picked up where Champion left off with ‘Sensitivity’ and shows just why his work with vocals has been so highly revered as of late.
