Jalapeno’s biggest success story are Kraak & Smaak who have become global stars with US TV appearances, headline festival slots and celebrity fans like Kanye West & Perez Hilton blogging and tweeting every time something new is released.The Dutch electro-funkers are on the verge of releasing their third album featuring collaborations with Romanthony and some other soon to be revealed star turns, as well as Sebastian and Lex – the singers from their live band. Kraak & Smaak continue to build the pressure in advance of their 3rd album, Electric Hustle, with the release of the single Call Up To Heaven.
Featuring the distinctive vocals of Lex Empress – the front woman of their incredible live show – it is a funk-fuelled slice of melancholy pop with a seriously catchy hook.
