Biography

Legowelt is the name under which Danny Wolfers (aka Danny Blanco) releases most of his music. The music is a hybrid form of slam jack electronix combined with deep chicago trax, obscure & romantic ghetto technofunk, EuroHorror Soundtracks, Italo disco and such.

Legowelt began producing music in the early ’90s when the adolescent schoolboy came in sporadic contact with the sounds of Detroit’s Underground Resistance, Model 500, Blake Baxter and Chicago heroes such as Farley Jackmaster Funk, Armando Gallop and mr. Fingers. Later on this palette of influences grew with early Mu-Ziq, Aphex Twin, Drexciya, various stuff from The Irdial Discs label and virtually every type of freaked deep music he could get his hands on.

But nothing had quite the influence of when he first heard a band called ‘Unit Moebius’ on the radio. A punky palette of RAW freaked out Lo-fi chicago trax and deep detroit jams made with machines which were found next to the garbage can. Shocked in awe he heard that this music came out of The Hague, Holland, the very same city he lived in! Put on the right track by this fact he stumbled into the Bunker Records office and discoverd a world of contemporary autistic freaked music lovers who looked beyond all the bland house and dance music that ruled the media and clubs. Musical mentors such as IF and Melvin White (aka pametex) lectured him with even more unknown sounds such as early electro and the obscure pre-1983 Italian disco which production secrets were closely studied.
