CANGURU: Reboot for the Saxophone Virtuoso of Alt-Electro-Hop Music. 

“…unique sonic identity” (Run The Trap), "...unique force on the scene" (EDM Sauce), “Contemporary and timeless…a tour de force of electronic music”. “A rising star in the electronic music scene”. (Goathead Records), “Canguru has crafted a masterpiece” (dailymusicspin.com), “Canguru is one to keep watching”. (Magnetic Mag)…

These are just a few review highlights from the electronic artist.

CANGURU is the new alias of the multi-talented Colin Crichton: whether as record producer, rapper, saxophonist, or painter: he is the embodiment of the DIY spirit. A canguru with a big bag of surprises! 

His single "Party in the Empire" reached over 36,000 listeners on Spotify and in total he collected around 174,000 streams. His music videos also managed to reach 349,018 views on YouTube. In 2022, the music video for his single "Winner Today" was also nominated for the Silver Awards at the 2022 Berlin Music Video Awards. 

As a producer, singer, rapper and saxophonist, CANGURU serves up a unique idiosyncratic style. His many experiences, which led him to this project and its DIY implementation, he collected across various formations and bands, and later as a session player on the saxophone - for the latter instrument CANGURU even has a Master of Arts!

Besides releases with various projects, CANGURU is also known for his collaborations with Hayla, Sarah de Warren, as well as session legend Herbie Flowers. 

All of this did not come without obstacles, however: During the Corona pandemic, Colin wrote a Conscious/Alt Hip Hop album in which he raps about very personal struggles: Now Colin aka CANGURU wants to act as a motivator/ role model and encourage other people suffering from depression to get their lives back on track.

The 2nd single from the new Album is out now. It is entitled “Pick it up”.
