The Mighty Breaks consists of six friends from the small Dutch town of Voorschoten. Known for their high energy live shows, the band’s weapons of choice are fuzzy guitars, keyboard riffs and the perhaps unusual but well thought out addition of saxophone, a combination so constructed that it would make any set of ears twitch. Their Garage Pop/90’s Alternative sound is inspired by artists like Guided By Voices, Black Lips and The Dandy Warhols.
Come check out their live shows!

New Signing: Jazz band SWART.

New release announcement! over the past few months we’ve been collaborating with Dutch/Spanish Jazz formation SWART.

Composer and saxophonist Celia Swart met her four Spanish band members during their time at the Royal Conservatoire, in The Hague. Their music has been described as an interesting fusion between the creativity from the Northern composition school and the contagious, passionate energy from the South.

SWART. has just finished recording in the studio and will be releasing their debut album with us on the 1st of June. So more soon!

The Stangs – The Horse

We are excited to announce that The Stangs will be releasing their single ‘The Horse’ digitally and on 7” vinyl through Mink Records on the 27th of May at Sniester Festival, the Hague!

The Stangs is a Sixties Beat group from the Hague. By combining influences from the sixties with sounds inspired by the Dutch west coast, they create their own genre they call Dune Beat.

Expect jangly guitar and organ riffs backed by a melodic bass and swinging drums, yet still leaving room for harmonies with the occasional shout.
Watching them live is like going back to the old days, as stated by Phil May from the legendary ‘Pretty Things’.
