After releasing a string of quality EP’s for the likes of Charlois,
Doppellschall and Permanent Vacation, Amsterdam based artist
Dollkraut (Pascal Pinkert) confirmed in 2014 with his debut album
“Schimanski’s Black Lullabies” on Brandt Brauer Frick’s imprint The
Gym. The Dutch producer’s back with his sophomore LP due February
24th 2017 on Dischi Autunno - new label founded by Jennifer Cardini
and Noura Labbani.
“Holy Ghost People” sees Dollkraut delve deeper into his recognizable
lo-fi and organic sound, inspired by old movie soundtracks, creating
gritty atmospheres mixed with the purest of melodies. Album opens with
instant hit “Bonnie Said”, where Pascal’s vocals magically merge with
the darkest of bass lines. “Valium” continues the journey, increasing the
tempo but confirming the feeling of being in a lost sci-fi movie
soundtrack. On “Oblivian”, the rhythm slows down again, allowing us to
dive even more in this twisted yet candid universe.
Title track “Holy Ghost People” (and end track “Victim”) both have this
Portishead feeling to them, with their simple yet hypnotic synths swirling
like merry go-rounds while “Wrong” feels like escaped from a “Magical
Mystery Tour” session in the late 60’s. Tempo increases instantly on
“Red Girl”, making the listener feel like propelled in a road movie. “Have
I Told You”, 8th track on the album and yet another hit, develops an
addictive, slow groove coupled with Pascal’s vocals, creating the perfect
sonic balance. Make no mistake, you’re about to listen to one of the key
records of 2017. Available from 10.03.2017
