Legowelt Gives Away Free Game Soundtrack

Is there a more interesting man in electronic music than Legowelt? Matthew Herbert aside we think not, as the man born Danny Wolfers today released the complete soundtrack for the Commodore 64 game ‘Loch Ness’ that he commissioned to be made back in January. After inviting fans to create a new game in the antiquated console format the Dutch DJ and producer then promised to score the winning entry and duly did, posting the soundtrack on his SoundCloud page.

Based on a fairly madcap idea the soundtrack predictably uses 8 bit sounds to craft ambient pieces that are strikingly different from Legowelt’s usual brand of House and Techno and are now available for free download in their entirety from his website.

As Danny himself explains ‘Loch Ness’ was “composed and recorded on a snowy winter evening with a bunch of Commodore 64s, using its mighty MOS SID chip going through a barrage of analog delays, tandy radioshack mixers and electromagnetic static that’s emitted by the rubbing of Legowelt’s fleece sweaters and silk blouses straight onto dusty cassette tape.”

So if you like your sounds retro and your beats even more so head over to his website to nab your copy now.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
