Dollkraut’s music often sounds like a past that was more beautiful, more broken and more glimmering than it actually was. Pascal Pinkert 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, 70’s space age synthesizers and John Barry meets Ennio Morricone fuzziness galore.
In 2013 he produced the ‘Theme Of Fukoyama EP’ for the Amsterdam based label Tape Records. Artists like Dixon, Midland and Steffen Bennemann charted the title song. Dollkraut’s ‘Blackbox EP’ (2014) for Rotterdam based label Charlois topped many charts as well. In that same year Pinkert delivered his most notorious work to date. The ‘Schimanski’s Black Lullabies LP’, released on Brandt Brauer Frick’s imprint The Gym, is a wide-spread and epic travel using vintage vocoders and filters, while Dollkraut himself takes care of the vocals, ensuing haunting themes on several of the albums songs.
In 2015 Dollkraut returned to Charlois with his Hornet Green EP. This time he delivered tracks with grubby percussion, vocoder tones and faint yet compelling homages to the traditional music of Mexico and Spain.
