Kraak & Smaak Announce Free Download For New Single 'Built For Love'
Built For Love is the single that brings the campaign for Kraak & Smaak's third album Electric Hustle to its peak. Previous singles Let's Go Back and Hold Back Love are still mainstays of the Beatport chart months after their release and new ep Kraak Beats Vol. 2 is charging up the chart as we speak.
But are the Dutchmen about to sit on their laurels and enjoy their success - not likely. Instead they have tracked down literally the perfect people to remix their Romanthony vocalled classic - Built For Love.
Roach Motel is the best loved pseudonym of house music legends Farley & Heller. Responsible between them for some of the seminal moments in house music this track was the first time the duo had come together in the studio in over three years.
Both were big fans of Kraak & Smaak's previous single with Romanthony Let's Go Back and agreed to come together to remix Built For Love.
In the end they delivered not one but two amazing mixes that show how powerful house music can be in the hands of master craftsmen. The Roach Motel Mix is deep and acidic while the Soul Boy mix rolls with a breakbeat swing underpinned by a sublime bassline that soothes your soul while it shakes your ass.
From the guvnors of the old school to the most exciting emerging talent in 2012 - next on the mix are Psychemagik. The mysterious duo from the cosmic forest have been steadily building a fanatical following with incredible releases like Valley of Paradise, a string of must have remixes and edits for the likes of Metronomy and their mind blowing DJ sets. The result unsurprisingly is an instantclassic for DJ's that like it deep and disco.
Let's not forget the original - the album opener for the Dutchmen and the first track to reveal their relationship with one of house music's most original and haunting vocalists. From his early Azuli classics like Falling From Grace (which had Murk and Tony Humphries on the mix) through to his world renowned collaboration with Daft Punk on One More Time, Romanthony is an enigmatic character who has been responsible for some of the most classic vocals in house. The deep Detroit chords of the original were the perfect way to announce Kraak & Smaak's new album and it remains a tough act to beat.
Built For Love will be released on 28th May on 12" and digital download.
