Heineken, Van Gogh, Kraak & Smaak. The three most famous things to come out of Holland. Ever. In that order. Ok so maybe a bit of an exaggeration but the last three years have been an incredible ride for the band considered to be Holland's most credible export and as they gear up for the release of their second album things seem set to get even crazier. After touring the planet in support of their debut album and remixing all their peers and heroes, the time came for the band to start recording their second album. The goodwill we got from our first album opened some doors for us says Mark We wanted to write with the people who are in the band as the core of the album but we also had met some people along the way who had got us excited and it was great that when we contacted them they wanted to work with us. We've got a killer track with Ben Westbeech on vocals which is lined up as the first proper single from the new album and another that we wrote with Mark Brydon from Moloko as the second. We've got vocal tracks with Rose and Ro in the bank and a killer track with rapper Dudley Perkins from Stones Throw who we've had respect for for a long time. The new album is a bit more grown up than the first album says Wim We've worked with some of our heroes and that's had an effect. We still want to write tracks that rock it on a dancefloor but we've also done an incredible cinematic track with Carmel who was a famous jazz singer in the 80's. We've kept the trademark K&S sound of funk and Fender Rhodes on some of the tracks says Oscar but tracks like Plastic People have a tougher edge. It's a natural result of playing to bigger festival crowds and seeing bands like Faithless tear crowds apart with big dark riffs. We still want to keep the party funk element to our live show but you need those dark ride moments that make it happen for the big crowds. We were really pleased when Sander Kleinenberg licensed an upfront version of one of our new album tracks for his Renaissance compilation. I don't think that would have happened with Boogie Angst.
