Kraak & Smaak
Kraak & Smaak (meaning ‘crunch & taste’, which is derived from a Dutch proverb) are a musical producer trio from the town of Leiden, the Netherlands consisting of Oscar de Jong, Mark Kneppers and Wim Plug. In 2003 a first couple of 12”s are released on the UK label Jalapeno Records. Interest from Annie Nightingale and Pete Tong leads to airplay and the recording of a DJ guest mix for BBC Radio 1. Several remixes for UK artists such as Mark Rae and dj tours across the US and Australia follow.
