Good For the City – their follow up single with Sam Duckworth of Get Cape Wear Cape Fly fame repeated the good vibes with that tune also getting a Mixmag tune of The Month and also hitting # 1 in the German Club Charts leading to Kraak & Smaak being the most charted international artist in Germany in 2013 ahead of big budget rivals like Disclosure and Depeche Mode.
It wasn't just their original productions making waves though. 2013 saw a series of killer remixes with their Kinetic remix for Golden Girls making Mixmag's Tunes of 2013.Kraak & Smaak have been on a continuous upward curve since they first broke out of Leiden with their debut album Boogie Angst and have never looked back since, playing massive live band shows at the cream of the world's festivals from Glastonbury to Detroit Movement, EXIT to Bestival and DJ'ing at the world's best clubs.
They followed up their debut with the album Plastic People which gave them one of their biggest hits Squeeze Me before they released their third studio album Electric Hustle and the effects of that release are still rippling right now. Dynamite from that album was a # 1 radio record in the US, Let's Go Back was in Mixmag and DJ Mag's singles of the year and was one of the longest serving releases in the Beatport Deep House chart.
Their new album Chrome Waves topped US college radio charts in Jan 2014 and got massive support by tastemaker blogs like Earmilk, Dancing Astronaut and MTV Iggy, to name but a few. Influential LA station KCRW once again showed their approval by awarding Kraak & Smaak's single Love Inflation featuring dutch star Janne Schra on vocals their coveted "Today's Top Tune" slot.
The band have 3 single releases from the album planned for 2014 and with the strength of the collaborators on Chrome Waves the difficulty is narrowing down the field to just three as the album contains collaborations with Ben Westbeech, Joi Cardwell, Capitol A, Stee Downes, John Turrell, Retro Stefson and Janne Schra as well as Sam Duckworth and talented dutch jazz soul singer Berenice van Leer who takes the lead role in the Kraak & Smaak live band.
Anthony hit the West Coast running in 2001, joining his old friend DJ M3 as resident DJ and co-promoter of the infamous Green Gorilla Lounge in a string of successful weekly club nights, true seat-of-your-pants underground parties, and blown- out monthly events across the Bay Area, with some of the city' s and world' s best names in dance music. Anthony has left his mark on Burning Man for the last decade as well, at the Space Lounge, Green Gorilla, and Disco Knights sound camps, with a trail of exhausted dancers and party people in the wake of his many epic sets on the Playa.
