Parkwaechter Harlekin comes from the small town of Baden near Vienna, where since his childhood he honed his abstract and metaphorical lyrical style and distinct musical production surrounded by vineyards, woods, rich people and suburban boredom. His music is polished sludge and muddy chrome, somewhere between kitschy pop and experimental rap.
He has released two albums „Liebe“ and „Die Unentschlossenheit der Tueren“ in 2010 and 2013 respectively on the Austrian independent Label Problembär Records and a number of free releases and collaborations through out the years.
His new album „Zum Fleiss“ was released on March 10th 2017.
As part of the Wolkenvorhang collective with theclosing since 2013, he had a hand in booking and supporting many of his heroes and inspirations in Vienna including Open Mike Eagle, Serengeti, Busdriver, Bleubird, Cars & Trains among many others.

theclosing is a Vienna-based music and art duo that consists of Daniela Palma Caetano Auer and Alexander Hengl. Lukas Lehner / TSI was their third member until 2015. They have been working towards the goal of making beguiling and original electronic music by mixing analog and digital sources that evades easy genre classification since 2004.
Their first official EP "the way to M" and their self-titled debut album were released on the American independent labels Circle Into Square and Fake Four Inc. Lately their sound became more influenced by ambient and noise elements, which you can hear on their album “Live at Beatmaker Sessions”.
They have played support shows for artists like Dälek, Zavoloka, Open Mike Eagle and Serengeti and collaborated with K-The-I???, Audio88, Babelfishh, Bleubird or Cars & Trains among others. Ever since 2013 they also organize the concert series Wolkenvorhang in their hometown Vienna, together with rapper and producer Parkwaechter Harlekin.
At their upcoming shows they will present yet unreleased material and tracks from their forthcoming album on FilthyBroke Recordings.
