‘Parable 2’, an excerpt from the fantastically twisted tale that is Holldën’s “Parable” EP

Holldën, aka Crown of Plenty, is the Portuguese techno DJ and producer behind techno/ambient label Kuiper Noise, a platform for new and established talents and one with a strong creative ethos and stringent quality control.

“All I care about is creating and be worthy of those who reach out to me. You see, maybe it’s naive to think this, but I believe the value of work should be front and centre in the music business. It’s not. But it should be if we’re to keep the so-called underground alive.” Holldën said in his recent interview with The Playground.

He is also a member of Disturb, the promoters turned label from Lisbon focused on contemporary techno.

Holldën’s latest EP Parable is out on trau-ma, the techno label based in Portugal run by Robert S (PT).

“As I improve I’m also more humbled by the task at hand. I’m better now at choosing elements that go together. But I keep my options open. I like to build elements from scratch. That’s the adventure right there! A tiny grain of surprise can do wonders for a song, it can generate whole new challenges. Not all sound is equal. Some things don’t work well together. So one thing you have to learn is to say “no” a lot. “No” is better than “yes” in music. “Yes” is easy. But it numbs the mind and makes you a slave to chaos.”
