The Dutch trio make their first appearance on Sean Brosnan's Future Disco label
Dutch trio Kraak & Smaak return with a finely honed nu-disco gem that'll have dance fans the world over boogieing on many a dancefloor and poolside terrace.
The track starts with a retro disco string stab and tight percussion, which are joined by a richly picked funk bassline with a lovely natural, woody tone and authentic string slides. This becomes the backbeat to a light and airy track, with a great piano lead and falsetto vocals from featured artist Luxxury about keeping it together that lend it an authentic 70s feel. There are cowbells, heavenly pads and other disco elements such as Nile Rodgers-esque guitar licks, and overall it just screams "summer dance anthem". It also pays homage to the sound of late 90s French disco house and comes in two mixes, the full length Original Mix and a useful Radio Edit. The latter's a good idea as this track crossing over to the mainstream is a distinct possibility.
So whether you're a nu-disco aficionado or just looking for some decent tunes to keep your crowd moving, this one is well worth checking: it's a hook-laden smooth groover that's built to satisfy.
