"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.
What a collaboration on this new track: Jean Grae, the sharp emcee showing off new vocals on the "Bridge" hook, paired up with RJD2, who must be taking a break from his rock trip to produce some heavy electronic funk. This track is from an upcoming compilation, Year of the Blacksmith Community mixtape. Jean Grae's highly anticipated album Cake or Death will never ever come soon enough.
