Kraak & Smaak’s 6th studio album - ‘Pleasure Centre’ is the culmination of two years hard work since their critically acclaimed ‘Juicy Fruit’ LP and their first Kraak & Smaak LP released on their own label – Boogie Angst. As expected it’s a glorious record packed with future classics, flitting between funky dancefloor focused jams and more relaxed downtempo affairs. The album has a definite West Coast US folk and hippie vibe to it and sees them fuse classic 70’s and 80’s yacht rock, dream pop, and indie influences in with their signature electronic funk sound. And this result is no mere accident or emulation… Working on the demos in their own studio before travelling to LA for a month last year to meet and work with featured artists, they stayed in Echo Park and recorded in local studios and sometimes even in the homes or backyards garages of their collaborators.
