God bless Danny Wolfers.
Workaholic techno producer Legowelt has just given away yet more free stuff we don’t really deserve, this time in the shape of a massive sampler pack of sounds from his Roland JD-800 – a highly flexible, almost infinitely customisable early ’90s synthesiser which also does a neat line in the kind of lush ambience required for Legowelt’s gloopy, shadow-filled music.
The download contains 350 WAV samples including “colossal juicy thick basses, bizarre unearthly pads, uncanny strings, mystifying effects, entrancing chords and lots lots more all ready for u to use in your sampler, DAW, tracker, workstation, MPC, Octatrack or whatever u use,” as the Dutchman explains, adding:
“Let the creative juices drip from your sampler
Rub yourself in the sap of this giant beast and break through
the event horizon of music production”
Are you ready for event horizon? Head to Legowelt’s website to download the pack – it’s free, but “if you make a hit record or these sounds took you into a new dimensional hyper existence” the producer has also pointed the way to his online donation box.
FACT TV tracked down Legowelt at last month’s Dekmantel festival in Amsterdam, where he laid into flabby Ibiza tech-house and talked about different Dutch cities’ takes on clubbing. Earlier this month he released his Teen Romance EP on the ever-reliable L.I.E.S. label.
