Kraak & Smaak announce new EP ‘Kraak Beats Vol 2′ + ‘Runnin’ Stream

Kraak & Smaak
Kraak Beats Vol. 2
Released 9th April On Jalapéno Records
Tracklisting: 1. Runnin’ 2. This Feeling 3. BPLB

Kraak & Smaak take a break from working the singles off their killer album ‘Electric Hustle’ to release the second in an occasional series of dancefloor slayers neatly entitled ‘Kraak Beats’. Kraak & Smaak had an incredible 2011 with their single ‘Let’s Go Back’ ending up in both Mixmag & DJ Mag’s singles of 2011 rundowns. In the USA they made waves with their album release hitting the top spot on college radio charts and # 1 on the album chart of prestigious LA tastemaker radio station KCRW. They smashed it at all of 2011’s festivals including a main stage set at EXIT and a second stage triumph at The Big Chill that rapidly pulled the crowd away from the meanderings of headliner Kanye West on the main stage. Having already released a classy pair of laid back dancefloor persuaders on KB Vol. 1, the boys follow up with another pair of understated gems ‘Runnin’ and This Feeling’ plus a bonus track BPLB a disco house special destined to be a free download on the boys soundcloud.

Runnin’ is a kraaktastic slice of disco goodness – heavy on the groove and a sure fire set lifter. This Feeling takes things a little deeper with the trademark K&S synth work from Oscar De Jong confirming a (dutch) master is at work. Free download BPLB – well it’s a killer but we probably could never clear all the samples so let’s just call this one a gift to anybody with a set of ears. ‘Kraak Beats Vol 2′ will be released exclusively on Beatport on 26th March and General release 9th April.
