Let’s Go Crazy are the parties that bring top-flight electro, indie, and drum ‘n’ bass line-ups to a mass of musically-astute teens all across the South of England.
The brainchild of Callum Negus-Fancey, Let’s Go Crazy is arguably the biggest youth and club culture phenomenon to come out of the UK since the early 1990s; and attracts a mixed crowd of cool fashion kids, suburban teens, ravers and the children of London’s musical elite - Pete Tong’s kids have been known to party at LGC! The line-ups feature the very best of today's cutting edge artists and Djs - with Chase & Status, Pendulum, Annie Mac, Tynchy Stryder, Rob da Bank, Andy C and Rusko all clamouring to play the events.
The album, out on EMI / New State is the brand’s first compilation, and a taster of what fires up Let’s Go Crazy’s crowd. Mixed by resident DJs, James Harwood and Twiggy, the 2 CD set features Chase & Status, Bloc Party, Lily Allen, David Guetta, Deadmau5, Steve Angello, The Prodigy, Boyznoise, Empire Of The Sun, the Noisettes, and many more.
Talking about the compilation Callum states: "It's exciting to be releasing a compilation that is the first of its kind, and great that EMI understand and share our views. We've tried to put together a compilation that reflects what our audience want to hear and has actually been requested by them, a diverse mixture of commercial and cutting-edge music."
Following a packed tent at Camp Bestival and their resident DJs taking to the main stage between bands at Bestival, 2010 will see Let’s Go Crazy expand further into the rest of the UK - so keep an eye out for festival announcements for next summer.
The next London event is their biggest to date at Brixton Academy on 26th October, and features the likes of 2ManyDJs, Chase & Status, Faithless Sound System, Pendulum (DJ set), Andy C, Annie Mac, Noisia, Miike Snow, Skream Vs Benga, Akala, Scratch Perverts, Jack Beats and more. This is set to be the largest ever 16+ dance event in the capital.
