NL — downtempo, electronic
Mark Knekelhuis

The minimalist Dutch synth scene has been booming for years. Fresh producers appear in succession with discs, live acts, reissues of early specials, and mixes made from them. Mark Van de Maat takes a prominent role in this with his label Knekelhuis. Mark combines dark minimalism, cleavage-crunching, raw synth themes, bitter noises, ominous vocal themes to put memorable sets on the table of European clubs every month.
