Meet Crazy Double And Listen To 'Pipa'
A tasty blend of reggaeton dance, hip-hop, and electro-pop
Crazy Double is a group made up of two members, both of which have an extensive background in music.
The first half, coming from Nigeria is Olisaboy who is a singer, songwriter, producer, and former member of the DJ duo known as The Champions. The second half, Vitaly, hailing from London U.K. is a classical accordionist and jazz musician who was a semi-finalist on Britain's Got Talent. This diverse pair bring with them different influences and experiences that together create the unique and exhilarating sound that is Crazy Double.
There's a wild energy energy encompassing their debut release, "Pipa," a track made for a summer dance party. With vibes similar to LMFAO and the Black Eyed Peas, "Pipa" is a buoyant banger meant to be blasted pool-side or at your favorite beach club.
Where the track differs from its contemporaries is in the myriad musical influences embellishing the tune, including reggaeton, dance, hip-hop, and sprinkles of electronic. The production builds off a reggeaton drum pattern moving on to infuse synth leads and digital snares not usually heard in Latin music. All these sonic elements are then highlighted by the cool, smooth vocal performances shown of both Olisaboy and Vitaly.
The blending of hip-hop, trap, and electro flavors with Latin pizzazz makes "Pipa" infectiously delicious.
