“Techno’s not just a beat”: Legowelt talks deep space, flabby tech-house and more
FACT TV spent last weekend at Amsterdam’s spectacular Dekmantel Festival.
Here’s the second film we shot, centered around Dutch producer Danny Wolfers – best known as Legowelt and several other aliases. Wolfers might have an encyclopaedic knowledge of dance music, and the “freaked deep music” that he pursues as Legowelt is firmly dedicated to the melodic soul of classic Detroit, Chicago machine-funk and the rest of it, but he never seems to forget that having a sense of humour goes a long way.
He described his 2011 album The Teac Life as “a hella lot deep tape saturated forest-techno tracks on it and when I say Techno i dont mean that boooooooooooring contemporary shit they call techno nowadays with overrated tallentless pretentious douchebag cunt DJs playing a few halfassed dumb mongo beats and being all arty fartsy about it”, and frankly, that’s enough for us to love him forever. We talked about how Holland’s musical city’s differ and interact, soulless Ibiza tech-house and more.
