    Pascal Pinkert Aka Dollkraut Is A Unique Specimen In Todays World Of Clean And Sterile Music Production. The Dutch Producer Is Best Described As An Analogue Sound Wizard With A Golden Touch For Pop Moments. His Music Often Sounds Like A Past That Was More Beautiful, More Broken And More Glimmering Than It Actually Was. Dollkraut Dares To Sound Like No One Else, Cinematic And Glamorous, Rough And Haunting. His Tracks Are Driven By A Deep Love For Old Lo-fi Fuelled Recordings,70s Space Age Synths And John Barry Or Ennio Morricone Fuzziness Galore.
    He has released 2 EPs on The Gym's predecessor and sister label
    Doppelschall, from which the song "Loot" was a massively charted
    deep house hit in 2010. But for those who are not familiar with
    Dollkraut, it should be pointed out that most of his songs can't be
    labelled as house music. Forget style talk, it's all about his unique
    sound and feeling that's both nostalgic and futuristic.
    Dollkraut also received a lot of attention for his stunning reworks
    of Brandt Brauer Frick and Paul Frick feat. Emika. He managed to
    create "fake originals": many people were convinced that his versions
    were the originals and the originals were the remixes...
    Dollkraut & Bernard Crochet - Zero EP
    For the "Zero" EP, Dollkraut teamed up with Frenchman Bernard
    Crochet, who is an entirely unknown face to the electronic music
    scene. We know basically nothing about him, and he is not even
    willing to tell us what he does in his ordinary life. But listening to
    "Zero" we do know that the guy has access to some crazy rare
    vintage gear that some people would kill for. The result of Dollkrauts
    and Bernard Crochets collaboration is heavily glamorous cosmic
    new wave dance music that can take you to heaven and make you
    psychotic at the same time. The two wizards are not afraid of
    hopelessly big emotions and here they found their unique way of
    brewing them into a magic disco potion.
