Walk Don’t Walk and !K7 Records present ‘Walk Dance Talk Sing’ – the seventh album by much-loved Manchester/Nottingham-based trio Crazy P, AKA Danielle Moore, Jim Baron and Chris ‘Toddy’ Todd.

Due to years experience in the studio and wowing crowds (both live and as DJs) ‘Walk Dance Talk Sing’ is steeped in the history of quality club sounds.  Proper deep house, boogie, funk and soul is mixed with modern electronic pop then sprinkled liberally with disco dust.

The melodic and sonic palette is brimming with colour and Danielle Moore’s bluesy, rich-vocal tones are smoking hot. This is the sound of a real band making real dance music with an audibly organic, human touch.

Confident, sophisticated and stylish yet playful and adventurous, it finds Crazy P in an empowered new purple patch – both comfortable in their own skin and unafraid to try new things.

Nocturnal allure and a voluminous bassline set the tone on album opener ‘Like A Fool’, whilst contemporary electronic soul blends into propulsive widescreen 4/4 on ‘Echo’.

‘Cruel Mistress’ is certified huge, emotive tear-jerking house music set to cause dancefloor rapture imminently, as will the frenetic and fully-immersive ‘Magnetise’.

The deep and slow-burning ‘Something More’ highlights the band’s willingness to explore uncharted sonic territory, whilst ‘The Way’ marks new directions and different frequencies via bass-heavy,  glacial ambience.

The album closes on a dynamic ride with aptly titled ‘Witch Doctor’, which comes on like Carl Craig’s ‘Throw’ dressed-up in Crazy P disco drag.

Rather than awkwardly jumping on the genres du jour, Crazy P have stayed true to what they like for long enough for it to come back around, which is most evident in the recent mass enthusiasm for ‘Uptown Funk’, ‘Get Lucky’ and the resurrection of Nile Rogers & Chic.

Way before the rise in prominence of disco, house and soulful pop from the likes of Todd Terje, Disclosure or Jessie Ware, Crazy P  have spearheaded the revival (and perpetuation) of these sounds since 1997. Their status as respected, vital players has maintained throughout nearly 20 years, and with the bright future of ‘Walk Dance Talk Sing’, they remain leading lights worthy of yet more recognition.
