- Carhartt WIP
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.com/music.
