Betonkust 1080p/ Pinkman

"The aim is to make something beautiful and just to have fun, nothing else." This is the simple mantra of Dutch artist Betonkust, and one that has helped establish him as one of the most exciting artists of the day. He takes his music seriously, but always plays with the aim of keeping the dance floor engaged and enthused. As a live act he serves up a restless mix of often dark music, from new beat to techno,
acid to electro, teasing in new strains of sound and cooking up real musical adventures on a whim. As a DJ, he plays new releases alongside known or lesserknows classics, complemented by his own productions.Either way, he keeps people guessing and on their toes.
In the studio, Betonkust is just as instinctive in his approach. He doesn't really care about expensive gear or complicated technical stuff, it's more about entertaining himself while producing the tracks. To this day he still uses the very first machine he ever bought, the Boss DR-660, and it remains a big part of his sound. The studio work has resulted in releases on 1080p and Crimes Of The Future, as well as 'Hotel
Breukelen' on Pinkman, '0% Swing' on 9300 and underground hits such as '24x33' from the Center Parcs album on Dekmantel in 2018.
Like most of his music, it was a lo-fi, nostalgic, hazy work of dreamy melody and roughhewn drums that takes you to a place in your past that never really existed.
Betonkust's sound is clearly influenced by electro from The Hague, combined with Belgian new beat, acid and rave, but the melancholic melodies and harmonies could also be traced back to Cocteau Twins and Nirvana. The result is a combination of addictive rhythms and bittersweet emotions that will linger in your memory.
