A phenomenal album, in turns beautiful, deep, and forceful. I saw this being hyped quite heavily on Bleep.com and checked the samples and was immediately hooked. The name was familiar - and on checking my collection I realised that I had bought nothing by Legowelt since "Pimpshifter" in 2000! Although his sound is now a lot different from the euro-influenced, detroit-tinged electro of that release, there is a commonality - a deep understanding of the emotional link to the past that music can evoke; both releases have nostalgic sounds from 15-or-20 years before their respective release date, yet sound contemporary as well.
In this case, early techno, acid house and rave get a good work-over with a selection of superb analog sounds and a clean yet glistening production style on tracks such as "On a Cold Winter's Day" and "On the Tigertrain". "Rave Till Dawn" adds a classic rave style stab, while tracks such as "Clap Yo Handz" evoke darkened sweaty rooms. Some of the titles are quite striking too, "Renegade of a new Age" or "Sketches from another Century" could both have been working titles for this album, but somehow both would have emphasised the "retro" too much, because this is not a pure time-trip, and is every bit as contemporary as it is nostalgic.

I've been meaning to try Legowelt for ages but thought I'd start here with his most recent and I'm smitten. What a fun, classy release. Yep it sounds familiar but it supposed to. Second wave Detroit, Chicago and more inform this LP and I've always loved that analogue sound because although it's machine music is still has a human warmth. So do what's right and 'Come on Clap Your Hands' and 'Rave Till Dawn'.
