Rob Crooks is a Winnipeg based musician and solo performer. From being the principle songwriter behind acclaimed Manitoba hip hop group Magnum KI, to releasing several critically received collaborations and solo albums, Crooks is emerging as one of Winnipeg’s most innovative and exciting new artists. His songs combine heavy electronic beats and layers of synthesizer with compelling stories and emotional confessions imparted with a street savvy authenticity that bypasses the tired conventions of today’s weary rap clichés. Combining vintage and modern drum machines, samplers and keyboards, his overall sound seamlessly intertwines 80’s new wave with 90’s hip-hop. The result is an unconventional form of music that transcends genres, while being both thought provoking and danceable.
