Rock Music

Rose Doolan

Amsterdam native demi-Irish Rose Doolan delivers deeply personal, folk-inspired songs about the unexpected beauty that lies in life’s darker corners. Endowed with a deep, clear, and warm voice, her simple but catchy guitar arrangements, and a gift for writing scenic lyrics, has lead Doolan being compared to legends Joni Mitchell, Nick Drake, and Laura Marling. 

Serial Chiller

‘SLACKER-PUNX FROM ‘ULL.’ Released the EP When It’s Party Time, recorded, mixed and mastered at IJland Studio.

the Good Folks

This folk rock / americana collective from Amsterdam creates a pleasant style with vocal harmonies that are reminisent of the late 70’s early 80’s supergroups. The Good Folks are a collective of seasoned musicians that share an unusual light and humorous yet familiar melancholic folk vibe. Jonathan Coughlan, Tom Beemster, Astrid Oud, Daan Guilliamse.

Six Def

Mysterious collective known from their hit single “I’m the King”, featured in Suits episode 16 “War” season 2, a trailer of Californication and other hip syncs, with which Six Def Records funds their ideals. (Like how we think all well paid artists should help fund the pyramid of poor music making bastards. Like a true king.)

Wondertrees

Amsterdam-based Wondertrees share a fascination for bands as Sparkelhorse and Palace Brothers. Mixing up the eerily slow tempo and sound of one of their many influences like LOW and Codeine with a faint reminder of Johnny Cash to sped-up postpunk tracks referring to bands such as Jane’s Addiction. “Wondertrees are out there as well-defined keepers of the legacy these bands and musicians have provided us with, while adding new flavour and taking it to the present.”

Six Def Records is a studio label from IJland Studios in Amsterdam. We focus not on the soul-crushing notion of ‘making it’, but on the act of making music itself. Music that we like, that comes from the heart, for joy and connectedness within and between people. All passion, no fashion.
