How to make a Legowelt track
Legowelt has been putting other house and techno producers to shame since the the 1990s.
The Dutch artist releases music at a rate of knots – there’s been at least nine albums under the Legowelt name alone now, and he has over 30 different aliases, all of which interact in weird, wonderful ways. His music has appeared on labels as disparate as Unknown to the Unknown and Cocoon, and he’s got a reputation as a real studio wizard – not only due to the hardware in the studio, but the sample packs and plugins that he gives out for free online. On top of that, he’s about as unpretentious as it’s possible to get.
In this video, FACT TV and DJ Haus – who, as previously mentioned, has released Legowelt records on his Unknown to the Unknown label – get to watch Legowelt make a track from scratch, using a combination of his own patches and sample packs, a tape player and more. It’s no surprise that he makes it look easy, is it?
Even better, we’ve had the track mastered and Legowelt is letting us give it away (there will also be a vinyl edition released through Unknown to the Unknown later this year, with a Photonz remix):
