Stippenlift is the alter-ego of singer and producer Hugo van de Poel. He himself calls the music depriwave, which perhaps already says enough. The melancholy lyrics about crying, suffering and depression are delineated with electronic music without any frills.

Vormlust created 4 videoclips and several artworks for his albums and singles. 


Was ik maar dood

With their new song “Was ik maar dood,” Stippenlift and Aafke Romeijn say: thoughts of death are very normal for some people, and it is important to talk about it. “If the taboo goes away, I really think that fewer people will eventually commit suicide.”

In the videoclip you see a person who no longer enjoys life. Everything is difficult and slow. Nevertheless, he still tries to give substance to his day. When you think that the ultimate low point has been reached, the clip takes a surprising turn.

Wat is je gender

“I see how the macho man dominates the world. I am also a man, how am I supposed to relate to that?” says Stippenlift.

For his new album ‘Gender De Rivier’ (Gender The River), Vormlust made the video with the song: Wat Is Je Gender (What Is Your Gender). Also the covers for his single and album are created by Vormlust. Regarding to Stippenlift What Is Your Gender is a true post-gender partyanthem. It is the first precursor for his EP Gender The River, in which he also addresses the theme in a more serious way.

De Façade

Vormlust made the videoclip for the song De Façade (The Façade). The Façade is about people who come across happy and successful, but who die slowly on the inside. Vormlust has translated this into a house party setting where the evening starts cheerfully, but changes as soon as nobody shows up. Is she happy or does she dare to take off her mask?
