No, ‘Kraak!’ and ‘Smaak’ are not just the first things that Scooter Libby will be experiencing in the big house (check out Wonkette’s top 10 prison nicknames for Scooter Libby – my favorite is “Yellowcakes”); Kraak & Smaak are actually 3 Dutch guys (Oscar de Jong, Mark Kneppers and Wim Plug) who have an appreciation for funky breakbeats. I’ve been hearing them quite a bit on Sirius Satellite Radio (Boombox channel).
The song that’s been growing on me is “Money in the Bag”. So I checked out their web site and found a really cool live performance of the song from August 27th at Uitmarkt Amsterdam. I grabbed the audio and have the mp3 below. I also include another tune that was offered on their site.
Sometimes you just need to kick back and let some Dutch dudes get seriously funky.
Kraak & Smaak: Money in the Bag (mp3) – sorry about the low audio level – crank it up a couple notches & go check out the video on their site though (from their home page, click Media).
