His attitude is to serve and every serve is in. Legowelt plays the game with style and great accuracy. His first servings, although Legowelt himself self said it was just some 'probeersel', exactly hit home.
The man feels what the public wants and succesfully creates an advanced vision thereafter. Easily switching to whatever moniker he feels like containing the high standards he himself demands.
Every release is an adventure on itself. Danny can decide to create a masterpiece in a genre if he wants to. Signs of a musical genius.
With partners in crime Brian Schijf+, Lukas Petterson and ? they have created standards. Legowelt conjures up the world that is the musical dream you dreamt.
Mr. Wolfers not only has that touch but has demonstrated the touch while staying in touch with the underground. Needless to say that he is admired by the lot of us.

"the obscure pre-1983 Italian disco which production secrets were closely studied", their secret is that they have best inner sense of what a zombie movie soundtrack should be.
A perfect style, an exact sense when to use vintage synthe and naïve melodies with always that funky touch which makes Legowelt one of my prefered electro band.

Just listening to some of this guy's stuff. This shit is so amazingly funky, and he just makes the melodies slide in an orgasmic polyphony. Not only that, but the beats are strong and the bass is compelling. Take a bit of Thomas Bangalter, add a dash of extra lower end, put in some even more funk, and cook it in some of the best melodies only a real musical genius can come up with. Put it all on vinyl, a cassette, or a CD. Serve either "at home" or "at the club." Works equally well. This music is fucking amazing, no doubt about it. It'll blast the shit out of your speakers, it'll make your body move to the groove, and it'll make your day. This shit is relentless. Go out and get some. I'm serious. Steal it if you have to, because it's just that good.

First of all, I really do NOT agree with above...ladies and gentlemen, let there be no doubt..this man is a living genius!
Indeed... all of his pieces of musical art contain that special legowelt sauce which makes every single track a euphoric, intense, adventerous and obscure thrill ride you want to make over and over again and leaves you begging for more after it touched your soul..
All of his tracks, especially the ones on the Pimpshifter LP are timeless, in fact in about 60 years from now your grandchildren will dance on 'total pussy control' on their prom nights and 600 years later robots on the planet Utopia will be doing the same on his dirty, sleezy obscure ghettofunk synth-soundscapes....
No people...this man...this man is the fucking Elvis of our time...

I was listening to some tracks from 'Wirtschaftswunder' and 'Pimpshifter' last night, and found myself wondering why Legowelt hasn't blown up yet. Part of me hopes it won't happen, since things tend to be better when they stay relatively underground. Still, Danny Blanco's music is so infectious that I wouldn't be surprised if Legowelt is as popular as Daft Punk someday. Legowelt's music is like that--it's beat-heavy, uptempo, and killer on the dancefloor, but it's interesting and varied enough to be enjoyable for armchair listening, too. I'd recommend Legowelt (and Legowelt vs. Orgue Electronique) to anyone who enjoys melodic, danceable electro.
