Krampfhaft up in smoke

Hailing from Utrecht, Krampfhaft –  known to friends as Joris van Grunsen – is the most recent addition to the Rwina crew, and one of its most clever snatch-ups in a while. On his freshly-baked Makin’ Magic EP, Krampfhaft’s craftmanship really comes to light as he incorporates footwork influences — in a manner much smoother than many of his cohorts. On tracks like “I Needed You” he takes the hyperactivity of his debut and turns it into hyper-focus, laser-guided footwork destruction, and on the EP’s title track he constructs a megalomaniac synth eruption complete with overblown pronouncements of grandiosity. With support from Mary Anne Hobbs, Starkey, Gaslamp Killer, and Daedelus, he is a star that’s most certainly on the rise.
