FACT mix 296 is by Legowelt.
The best-known recording guise of Den Haag-dweller Danny Wolfers, Legowelt is a project dedicated to “freaked deep music”: its roots are primarily in the jacking alien funk of Chicago acid house, but also the cinematic machine-soul of Detroit, the synapse-mocking braindance of Aphex and Rephlex, and the high camp of italo-disco and synth-pop. Unlike so many contemporary house and techno practitioners, Wolfers is passionate about, and adept at, capturing the rawness of the finest 80s box jams; to listen to his music is to be transported to a different time and place. Here's how he described his latest album, The Teac Life.
“I am talking about: Raw as fuck autistic Star Trek 1987- Misty Forests- X-FILES, DETROIT unicorn futurism made on cheap ass digital & analog crap synthesizers recorded in a ragtag bedroom studio on a TEAC VHX cassettedeck in DOLBY C with an unintelligible yet soulful vivacity.”
Amen to that. The same spirit informs FACT Mix 296.
