Dutch dance aficionados - Kraak & Smaak’s sixth studio album ‘Pleasure Centre’ was their first to be released on their very own Boogie Angst imprint, and as anyone has already heard it will testify – it’s a glorious affair of dancefloor aesthetics, downtempo, pop and electronica.
Featuring an all-star cast of collaborators including Nic Hanson, Gavin Turek, Izo FitzRoy and many more, the album hit all the right notes with the likes of press heavyweights Billboard, Indie Shuffle, EARMILK and Faze Magazine.
And now we have the first installment of reworks (with more to come in a full remix album later this year), first up LA based producer Turbotito takes on the album title track ‘Pleasure Centre’ and flips it’s downtempo eastern vibes into an acid house and disco infused beat. Retaining all the mystique and joy of the original it’s destined to be a club classic and a must listen for fans of Screamadelica-era Primal Scream. Regular and extended (promo only) included!
Also we have Martin “Atjazz” Iveson taking on ‘Say The Word’. With a CV boasting over 20 years of reworking and partnering on releases for the likes of Nitin Sawhney, Bob Sinclar, Gilles Peterson, Jazzanova, Karizma, Osunlade, Zed Bias & Omar to name but a few, you know you are in good hands.
He provides a chilled out deep house cut of the Nic Hanson collaboration, complete with - yet again a promo only - instrumental flip for those who prefer their tunes that way…
supported by 4 fans who also own “Pleasure Centre Remixed (Sampler)”
Love this. It feels like a proper DJ Kicks to me. Excellent variety. A little challenge here and there. I love the depth in selections and his mixes are so enjoyable. Well done Mr Scruff! Walter Maenhout
