Biography

Pascal Pinkert aka Dollkraut is a unique specimen in today’s world of clean and sterile music production. The Dutch producer is best described as an analogue sound wizard with a golden touch for pop moments. His music often sounds like a past that was more beautiful, more broken and more glimmering than it actually was. Dollkraut dares to sound like no one else, cinematic and glamorous, rough and haunting. His tracks are driven by a deep love for old lo-fi fuelled recordings, 70’s space age synths and John Barry or Ennio Morricone fuzziness galore.

He has released 2 EPs on The Gym’s predecessor and sister label Doppelschall, from which the song “Loot” was a massively charted deep house hit in 2010.

Forget style talk, it’s all about his unique sound and feeling that’s both nostalgic and futuristic.

Dollkraut also received a lot of attention for his stunning reworks of Brandt Brauer Frick and Paul Frick feat. Emika. He managed to create “fake originals”: many people were convinced that his versions were the originals and the originals were the remixes…
