Legowelt: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jan 11 2012

The 1990s saw a strange revolution take place in The Hague. Holland's third largest city became the unlikely center for a group of retro-minded artists dedicated to electro. Producing a sound that's hard, like their American counterparts (think Drexciya and Aux 88), but tempered by the pop appeal of Italo disco, The Hague's electro scene quickly garnered a large cult following. One of its most prolific artists is Danny Wolfers (a.k.a. Legowelt). Getting his start in the late '90s, Wolfers has built a reputation as an expert producer of smart, dancefloor-oriented electro cuts that he describes as a combination of (among other things) "slam jack The Hague electronix" and "romantic ghetto technofunk."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
