If you’re a foodie like Phra—the Italian DJ/producer better known as Crookers—then the hunger is real. As an avid fruit lover and self-proclaimed fish fanatic, life on the road means that Phra’s favorite dishes may not always be on the menu. If he had his druthers, Gilda (his girlfriend’s mom) would always be within arm’s reach, acting as his personal chef. But since this isn’t his current situation, Phra must look elsewhere for daily nutrition, which inspires him to find good eats in unfamiliar territories. (It’s kind of a win when you think about it, since that’s one of his favorite pastimes). From time to time, however, he will eat outside of his comfort zone. “I felt pretty weird the first time I tried kangaroo,” he says. “But I have to admit, I’m not really that brave when it comes to trying new food.”

We collected a few snapshots from Phra’s Able to Maximize US tour, just in case you were wondering how he survives from gig to gig on the culinary tip. And if you build up an appetite from his NSFW food porn, we’ve got you sorted with a few tasty “Able to Maximize” remixes that should hold you over until your next meal.

Session with this mad guy. I love the coffee and AC in the studio. I could live here forever!
