Reliably eccentric Dutch producer Legowelt (real name Danny Wolfers) is giving away his latest album, The TEAC Life, for free.
The 14 track opus – the latest collection of analogue jams in a seemingly endless discography – has been posted on his website along with a blurb describing the music as “deep tape saturated forest-techno”.
“And when I say techno I don’t mean that boring contemporary shit they call techno nowadays,” he added, before taking a swipe at the “pretentious douchebag” end of the electronic music spectrum. Further references are made to Star Trek, the X-Files and Detroit unicorn futurism, while it also revealed that the entire album was made using “cheap ass digital and analogue crap synthesizers recorded in a ragtag bedroom studio on a TEAC VHX cassette deck in Dolby C with an unintelligible yet soulful vivacity”. We strongly suggest you read this for yourself.
Wolfers also left the option open for fans to make a donation for the album, “so I can buy more crap synthesizers to make stuff like this, and repair my Roland Juno 106, which stopped working during the recording of this album”.
