Kraak & Smaak (Live XL)

Kraak & Smaak (Live XL)

2023 is a special year for Kraak & Smaak. The Leiden producer trio has been around for 20 years and will celebrate this during Amsterdam Dance Event in the Max!

Especially for this jubilee year, the trio is unpacking special shows with guest appearances and extra musicians, where the band takes the audience along the entire oeuvre. Of course the permanent vocal forces Berenice van Leer and Ivar Vermeulen will also be present. Ever since the first albums Boogie Angst and Plastic People with hits like Squeeze Me and Money In The Bag, the people of Leiden have been traveling all over the world with their DJ sets and live performances.

Now, years later, the formation is still indispensable thanks to their unique mix of funk, soul, disco and electronica and successful collaborations with other artists. For example, singles appeared with, among others, Parcels, Mayer Hawthorne, Izo FitzRoy and recently also Durand Jones. The gentlemen are not sitting still, because they are already working on the sixth album of which the first singles will be released this year. The album 'Twenty' will also be released this summer, where the greatest hits of the band are collected.

NOTE: This is an evening show.
