The Netherlands-based producer LEGOWELT has just released his new album entitled « The Paranormal Soul » on the sub of CLONE Records : Clone Jack For Daze. Involved in music since the end of 90s, LEGOWELT has always been watching by a part of the audience as a pure underground genius however also as a too-repetitive producer by another part and ignored by the last part… Despite his undeniable musical talent, he’s never succeed to do a real gathering on one of his project (excepted may be via his EP « Pimpshifter »). However this new material is going to change that. On the «The Paranormal Soul» album, the immersion is easy & lively according to a production more catchy but always so solid. Therefore that way could seduce a more large audience and highlights the LEGOWELT’s unique signature as powerful one. The entire track list is really good and at the opposite of its time you won’t have to zap any track (…it also hard to choose or to extract just one tune as the favorite). The atmosphere is deeply inspiring & inspired. Some sounds will remind you like a specific souvenir without be able to put a name of an artist on it but rather a style or a period; so we find back some reminiscences from old House, New-Age, Synth Wave, Rave, Acid and all the components of electronic music. A really enjoyable combo! Don’t pass through the best LEGOWELT’s album, « The Paranormal Soul » is definitely a masterpiece and will mark this year and more.

ROBERT HOOD – Motor City
ROBERT HOOD has just released the 3rd installment of Nighttime World Series on the Belgium imprint : Music Man Records. This album comes 12 years after the 2nd volume (on P-Lant – 2000) and 17 years after the 1st volume (on Cheap – 1995) therefore the Detroit-based master ROBERT HOOD has already passed through 3 decades of Minimal Techno production. « Motor : Nighttime World 3 » is a deep project connected to the previous via its straight touch related to the 1st and via its fine groove related to the 2nd. But this album has got also its own strong musical identity (more Acid than the others) and above all its own story. Indeed, about this post-dystopia album ROBERT HOOD has announced that he has been stimulated especially by the chaotic report of the JULIEN TEMPLE’s documentary entitled “Requiem For Detroit?” which is focused on the damage caused by industrialization of Detroit city. As everyone probably knows, at their beginning in 90′s UNDERGROUND RESISTANCE (founded by MIKE BANKS, JEFF MILLS & ROBERT HOOD) have been very influenced by the committed philosophy from the Hip-Hop band PUBLIC ENEMY however despite the fact that MILLS & HOOD are still involved in/with Detroit, according to me, these 2 emancipated soldiers of UR look finally more related to the motto of an other rapper named…RAKIM : “the most important thing isn’t where you’re come from, but where you go”. That remains the real point of Art. Therefore ROBERT HOOD’s production don’t lock the audience up in the Detroit’s darkness but take you somewhere in the future where you will be able to reach a kind of hope.
As his usual, ROBERT HOOD produces his music with a real sincerity, the tracks are solid and the most part deserves easily to be mentioned as masterpieces. This album should speak to any kind of music lovers, even those who aren’t familiar with electronic, indeed this producer has the serious talent to keep a such deep musicality in his no non-sense & raw productions. It’s very fascinating to see & to listen a pioneer from the renowned 92′ Techno period who successes to maintain a such quality of music in 2012! Therefore thumb up, this installment is obviously the best release of this end of summer and also a new awesome piece to add to the timeless series. Highly Recommended!

DJ TLR [of Crème Organization] has produced a huge mix to celebrate the 20 years of BUNKER RECORDS, the underground electronic Netherlands based Label. Representing a kind of rebellion in the scene, BUNKER RECORDS is a label producing with no compromise, following the “Do it yourself” motto. This imprint is focused on the evil aspect of visual & music (Electro Acid Techno Industrial) giving them an infamous, dark and raw identity that they assume & feel as an experience to reach a kind of Freedom (BTW, it’s always good to read again the biography of this label via Discogs website in order to understand who they started, i mean that for those producers who are always crying about make money with music). The large BUNKER RECORDS’ catalog can be approach in such many ways therefore we are happy to see GUY TAVARES the grand poobah of the label commissioned this mix to the talented TLR, his selection is so fine! After 20 years of activism, of course they are totally deserved to be mentioned as an EPIC label. We guess it was/is not easy for them to survive day-by-day but for now don’t think about the future next years, just enjoy this moment, mad respect :
