Of Danny "Legowelt" Wolfers many alternative aliases, Nacho Patrol is the one that has consistently delivered the strongest material. It was initially launched some years back as an outlet for Wolfers' occasional, Afro-influenced Italo-disco and techno cuts, with 2011's The Africa Jet Band Album, and 2013's Cinnamon Funk particularly impressing. "Panter 777" is lifted from the Dutch producer's very first release under the name, appearing as a cassette only track on The Maze Of Violence (Il Labirinto Di Roma Violenta) issued by MinimalRome back in 2009. "Panter 777" remains a humid delight of the Nacho Patrol canon. It's dark, trippy and hallucinatory, with waves of droning synth work and bizarre, bubbly melody lines intertwining with Afro style wah-wah guitars and Detroit style chord progressions. Jared Wilson delivers a typically solid remix, but it is Wolfers' odd but brilliant original that really sparkles.
An alias of Dutch producer Legowelt, this four track release under the name Nacho Patrol is a weird and wonderful revelation. A deliberate exploration of African modes from a house and techno perspective yields some truly original and futuristic results. While some tunes like "Twinotters" have a conventional nu-disco beat, they're still layered with an adventurous palette of different textures and sounds that rarely get fused together. "Africa Space Program" switches things around though, keeping the groove strictly Afrobeat but with some techno touches incorporated into the melody. A true one off that seriously deserves your attention, let's hope more material like this surfaces soon.
