So the first track from your new album is christened "a future anthem" by Pete Tong on his radio show, hits the Number 1 spot on the DMC Buzz Chart and is Tune of the Month in Mixmag. Time to take the rest of the year off I guess ?
Not for Kraak & Smaak - they have been busily sourcing like-minded souls to remix their summer hit while making sure the album that follows is an all killer, straight thriller affair.
First up from Solomun's DIYnamic crew is Adriatique. Both the Adrians that comprise the duo were big fans of the original featuring it on the DIYnamic podcast and got in touch with the Kraakers to say they would be up for remixing the song. The result is deep bassy house heaven and certain to be a summer terrace stalwart.
Next in the frame is the Kraakers countrymen Detroit Swindle whose deep dutch take on the original is also a summertime swooner.
Househeads Prok & Fitch deliver the final mix stripping out all the pianos and going straight for the jugular in a bass riding tech house builder.
The remixes will be released in June to keep the vibe building for K&S with their album due at the end of the summer.
