Razor-sharp hi-hats, hypno-synths combined with dark underground industrial sounds, fused to a technological oasis of sinister story lines. The Netherlands has a new producer and live act, who’s first release reached far beyong our borders in the last year.
Darko Esser was the man who noticed a new talent from the east and offered him a chance to release vinyl only tracks on his very own label Wolkskuil. Rolando, Norman Nodge, Ben Sims and Âme amongst others played the first Qindek EP in their sets. Outbreak EP (WOLF026) was the breakthrough for Qindek, who started focusing on techno over two years ago.
The producer from Deventer is making music for a decade now. In 2011, the urge towards making techno became ever more intense and the message was clear: back to the essence of electronic music. A long road to the timeless was initiated, which brought about a studio expansion with lots of electronics. A highlight of the year was Qindek’s performance on the 4D-soudssystem of the Bimhuis during ADE 2012 alongside Peter van Hoesen.
By now Qindek has three new releases in the pipeline and a strong connection with our resident Sandrien, who frequently plays Qindek tracks in her sets. Also nice to know: Qindek recently started his own Bandcamp on his website,where toolkits can be purchased for the symbolic sum of 1 euro.
On Saturday December 21st Qindek will be performing live for the first time in Trouw during Imprint with Dario Zenker, whilst Kangding Ray and Patrice Bäumel take over De Verdieping.
