Kraak & Smaak ft. MC Sebastian
Hit The Club
01. Original Mix
02. Sander Kleinenberg Remix
Where three is the magic number by Hip Hop standards, Kraak & Smaak have proven no exception. Hot off the heels of one of their most prolific years to date, the Leiden trio return to THIS IS Recordings to follow-up 2012’s remix duties for Sander Kleinenberg’s ‘Chemically’ with their latest aptly titled original ‘Hit The Club’.
Having led their inauguration to the label with high quality over mindless quantity, their ability to build strong moments in sound without bowing to popular convention is further apparent in their first release of the new year. Led by scattered melodic developments and slow grooving beats throughout, ‘Hit The Club’ employs hypnotic vocal builds to forge a landmark installment for the fast rising retro advocates.
Last found alongside the funk-savvy threesome for ‘The Journey’ with Ursula Rucker for 2012, there were few more suited to take on remix duties for the duos debut mark for 2013 than label head and world renowned DVJ Sander Kleinenberg. Returning the favour for the trios powerful remix of ‘Chemically’, his own take on ‘Hit The Club’ proves a suitably high-octane remodel from Sander, employing strong low-end undertones and stubborn beats for a strong differentiator from the down-tempo A-side.
Off the back of the year that saw them drop a full-length album, remix Moby and collaborative duties alongside Sander Kleinenberg and Romanthony alike, ‘Hit The Club’ looks to set in motion an essential year for the eclectic Dutch trio. With firm allegiances with THIS IS and Jalapeno Records already established, their funk-fuelled Electronic stylings have already scaled the globe courtesy of significant tour duties across Europe, North America and Australia – with 2013 promising yet further landmarks such a brand new studio album and global extensions of a sound placed perfectly to escape mediocrity in the name of integral Electronic music.
