Kraak & Smaak (DJ set)
The Rooftop is heating up, and this is sure to be one of the best
Saturday, August 19th, The Rooftop presents Kraak & Smaak (dj set). 2pm-8pm.
Initially the live band is put together solely as a one-off promotional tool for their first album. But with that premiering show in Amsterdam, with its energetic mix of funk, disco and house, plus a heavy dosis of rock 'n roll attitude, it impressed people so much that they quickly decide to embark on a follow up by organizing a first club tour in the Netherlands.
Their set-up, combining the fat club sound of their releases with live musicians and male and female vocalists, turns out to be a totally unheard of musical phenomenon in the Dutch club and festival circuit at the time, leading to invitations to play at Holland's biggest festival, Pinkpop, and support slots for UK superstar dance act Faithless in enormodomes in the Netherlands and Belgium.
