Hailing from Leiden, the Netherlands, Kraak & Smaak is the playful alias for Oscar de Jong, Mark Kneppers and Wim Plug, a musically gifted trio who’ve been keeping fans across the globe grooving since 2005 with their energetic mix of funk, disco, and house.
With over a decade of releases and tours under their belt, Kraak & Smaak’s lively DJ sets and live performances have become a well-known force of today’s international electronica club and festival scenes.
The Dutch trio return to Metropolis in celebration of their sixth full-length album, Pleasure Centre. It’s the culmination of two years of hard work since their critically acclaimed Juicy Fruit LP and the first Kraak & Smaak LP released on their own label – the cheekily named Boogie Angst.
Pleasure Centre is a glorious record packed with future classics, downtempo affairs, and dancefloor jams, fusing together classic 70’s and 80’s yacht rock, dream pop, and indie influences, all with their signature electronic funk sound.
We are thrilled to welcome back Kraak & Smaak to KCRW for an exclusive guest mix on Metropolis.
