Kraak and Smaak – My Synths Are The Bomb (D’Steph Remix)
Kraak & Smaak are a Dutch trio whose stuff tends towards the downtempo. This tune was first released over a year ago on their Electric Hustle album. But on their new Mixed Feelings release it’s been given a remix by Belgian artist D’Steph. Free download.
The original is a smooth piece of synth disco for gentle cosmic grooving. D’Steph keeps the relatively restrained feeling of the original but makes it darker and more twisted with the addition of undertow techno bass and some stabbing synths. Lovely work.
