AUG 2 / Tolhuistuin
Sold-out shows, check. Phenomenal LP on Jennifer Cardini’s Dischi Autunno imprint, double check. Although having DJed at Dekmantel on various occasions (last year’s set at Selectors a real stand-out), it is surprisingly then that this is the first time Dollkraut will perform live at the festival. Pascal Pinkert’s psychedelic, krautrock-house takes on an extra dimension in the flesh. Crooning like a beefed-out, 60s veteran of the Warehouse scene pivoted behind his synthesisers, delivering his sultry vocals while backed by bass guitarist Timothy Francis, and Rens Ottink on drums, the Dollkraut band is a real site to behold. A real master of the unconventional, with coloured distortion, electro-flair, Italo rhythms, and tonnes of glam, the Dollkraut band are a band that transcend time, space, and style.
