This week’s episode is focused on Pinkman Records, a Dutch label throwing since 2013 very nice releases of electro, acid house and weird disco, in the purest “Den Haag” tradition… Think Bunker, Creme or labels in that range to define Pinkman sounds and influences.

Pinkman is leaded by Mr Marsmann, and to introduce the mix, he answers to a short interview…


1 Pinkamn is almost two years old now, but I assume the process that leads you to launch the imprint was far longer… How can you shortly describe it?

—–It took me six months to set everything up. Contact with the artists, finding a record plant, distributor, someone for the artwork, mastering, promotion.. all that stuff.

2 There’s realy different artists on Pinkman, but that bunch of releases, which might have seem heteroclite on the paper, works together really well. How do you succeed in creating a strong identity with artists that are soo different?

—–Well i didn’t thought about that too much with Pinkman. It’s just basically my own music taste haha, and that’s pretty versatile.

3 You just launched Charlois, Pinkman’s sublabel… Why did you find it necessary? What is the purpose of Charlois, compared with what you accomplished with Pinkman?
—–I just had the feeling i needed to do it. With Charlois i can walk a different path when it comes to artwork for example. But the most important thing, the music. The sound of Pinkman is going to be darker next year, focussing more on the techno/house/wave side of electronic music. Music released on Charlois will be more in the disco/electro corner i guess.

4 What are your upcoming projects ?
—–Just keep on doing what i do. Continue with both the labels. Doing parties, making a monthly radioshow on Intergalactic FM. And off course dj’ing. Next to that we’re going to give away a free digital compilation on Souncloud really soon. So people should follow the Pinkman sound cloud if they don’t want to miss out on this.

5 There’s a strong and very particular identity in the Dutch scene, when it comes to techno and house… Pinkman’s releases immediately ring a bell for Delsin’s or Creme’s lovers… How can you explain the fact that some of the bests labels in the genre you dig are from “Den Haag”‘s neighbourhood?
—–Well for me my musical education really started when i discovered Intergalactic FM. So yeah, all these labels like Viewlexx, Creme and Bunker connected to that was for me the biggest inspiration to start my own label. But also younger labels like Midlight, Bio Rhythm, BAKK and Bordello A Parigi always inspire me to just keep on doing what i do.
