So Juicy! Kraak & Smaak’s new album out on June 10

Artwork by Jimmy Turrell

Our Dutch friends from Kraak & Smaak just added another great release to their discography: Juicy Fruit is the perfect blend of fresh and sweet disco, funk, and dance sounds.

With Juicy Fruit, Kraak & Smaak go back to their roots: organic and warm electronic disco and early 80s funk paired with indie dance beats, jazz influences, and deep basslines. High-level collaborators on the 13 tracks of the album include Grammy-nominated Mayer Hawthorne, Eric Biddines of Golden Rules, Parcels, Gallowstreet, and Cleopold to name but a few…

Juicy Fruit switches effortlessly between hot dancefloor killers and cool afterparty morning soundtrack. It’s already on constant repeat at bureau45 headquarters – and will surely be so on the dancefloors of clubs and festival stages this summer!

Listen to the first tracks from Juicy Fruit on Kraak & Smaaks Soundcloud channel.

Juicy Fruit (JAL 217) will be released on Jalapeno Records and is available as of June 10th on CD / Digital / 2xLP
