Mark Knekelhuis

Day Program

An enigmatic master of shadows, the always unpredictable Mark Knekelhuis is attracted to the weird and the unknown. At the helm of the eponymous genre-busting label, he's released a slew of records that encompass everything from quirky Swiss-French synthpop, to 1980s mutant no-wave, to Amsterdam's cult faves, De Ambassade. And as frontman of the hybrid analogue-punk act Volition Immanent, alongside partner-in-crime Parrish Smith, Mark charts his way through a raw, DIY-infused sonic universe. If there’s one thing that makes him tick, it has to be the unlimited firepower of dance music as a transgressive but unifying means of expression. His sets are subversive as they intimate; brutal, seductive and anything but formulaic.
