Listen back to all Carhartt Radio WIP shows:


Enter the world of Knekelhuis. One of the Netherland’s freshest contemporary labels, its offering is vast and varied: 1980s coldwave, modern ambient poetry, synthpop, techno, house, EBM, Punk, Krautrock, and left-field electro all feature. But equally, its founder, the DJ and producer Mark Knekelhuis, has formed the imprint into something remarkably cohesive and crafted, despite its esoteric leanings.

Launched in 2014, Knekelhuis has reissued Dutch wave rarities, as well as championing the likes of Belgian spoken word artist Victor de Roo, experimental, industrial Beijing duo of Zaliva-D and highlighting the modern French synth-pop stylings of Eye.

For this month’s Carhartt WIP Radio show the Knekelhuis head-honcho presents a haunting, multi-faceted journey, featuring both the aforementioned artists and work from the likes of Berlin’s Philipp Otterbach and the mysterious punk-not-punk quartet Jean-Luc. To accompany the mix, we sat down with this month’s host, who told us that a successful label doesn’t always needs a masterplan. Check the full feature at

Carhartt WIP – Since 2007, Kenny Dixon Jr, better known as the DJ and producer Moodymann has been hosting skate parties in Detroit. Dubbed “Soul Skate,” this biennial event is the pinnacle of parties for this burgeoning – but largely unknown – subculture of rollerskating fanatics. All year round, they travel the country attending similar but smaller parties. Dixon Jr, however, plays a low-key role — demurring to his Soul Skate team, who host the event and with whom he travels to skate. This one, he says, is about Detroit and those with a love of skating. In summer 2018, Carhartt WIP, Dazed and NTS travelled to Motor City to capture the sights and sounds of this raucous four day festival. Culminating in a Saturday night skate-marathon between 11pm and 5am, wheels whirred over the rink’s wooden boards, as it swarmed with skaters, each with their own idiosyncratic style, often related to where they’re from. (Skaters from Chicago, for example, snap their legs together in many of their moves, as part of their signature ‘JB style’ — a tribute to James Brown). “Skating plays a huge role in Detroit’s cultural and political history,” writer Bwalya Newton notes for Dazed. “In 1950s and 60s Detroit, during what would have been the beginning moments of the cultural shift brought on by desegregation, roller-rink owners maintained racial divides by violently pushing ‘Rhythm Nights’ and ‘Soul Nights’ to African-Americans. Attendance was enforced by means of harassing and attacking the black populous if they showed up to other events. Through brute force, these nights came to be symptomatic of the style and culture of black popular music.” Directed by London-based filmmaker Ramone Anderson, Soul Skate 2018 takes you right to the heart of the rink and this vibrant subculture, as Dixon Jr, his team, and an assortment of like-minded crews, such as the Baltimore Low Riderz detail what Soul Skate and this culture means to them.
