Boogie Angst

Boogie Angst

Kraak & Smaak


Boogie Angst
Quango Music Group
Year of release: 2006

Funkiness can be found where you least expect it. If you didn’t already know, look toward the Netherlands: Dutch dance trio Kraak & Smaak definitely bring it. If you’re wondering about the name, it’s not a reference to illicit substances. It’s taken from an old Dutch proverb (meaning “crunchy & tasty”). Boogie Angst marks their debut full-length, a fun release packed with soulful breaks, danceable grooves, and even some humorous sample fodder. Most folks have been gushing over the club tracks “One Of These Days” and “Keep Me Home,” a pair of disco numbers with memorable vocals and organ riffs that are sure to turn the party out. While they can definitely move some butts, their living room fare is nothing to overlook. “5 To 4” is the best spy theme this side of James Bond while “Mambo Solitario” threatens to dethrone Thievery Corporation as kings of the lounge vibe. “Keep On Searching” is midtempo funk accentuated by a spoken word hook and chicken coop sounds. Hip-hop lives here, breakbeat lives here, and everyone gets along. No arguing over portions at dinner or anything like that – Kraak & Smaak create a peaceful coexistence. And best of all, you can dance to it.
