“Dynamite” featuring Sebastian is from the upcoming album by the Dutch production trio Kraak & Smaak. “Dynamite” is a dancefloor devastating, sub-bass wobbling electro-funk bomb. One of the first tracks to be completed for the new album, it has been the biggest secret weapon in Kraak & Smaak’s DJ armoury as they have toured the globe over the past two years. From the smallest red light basement to the biggest festival crowd, it has always fired up the dancefloor.

“Dynamite” will be on iTunes next week | Available exclusively on Beatport now
