Legowelt Announces New Ambient Album on Dekmantel
‘Just Another Clown On Crack’ LP is scheduled for May 11 release.
Dekmantel is set to release a new LP from Occult Orientated Crime, the ambient project of Danny Wolfers (a.k.a. Legowelt). This will be the first physical release under this moniker.
Wolfers: ‘‘The OOC sound is an accumulation of twenty years of musical training and research and what effect it has on the brain. Simply put: it’s electronic ambient music, which is more advanced compared to the music I’m creating with my Smackos alias. OOC is deeper and more melodic, less loose and vague but perhaps more intense. It can bring the listener into a completely different state of mind, you can almost call it ritualistic neuroscience music.’’
The six tracks are recorded around the same time, using coherent recording techniques. Apart from the track “Just a Clown On Crack,” the release lacks kick drums. ‘‘”Just a Clown On Crack” has a trip-/hip-hop feel to it and was craving for a beat. It’s also the last track of the album and, in a rather fluent way, brings the listener back to the misery and tragedy of the normal, everyday world. It’s like returning from the OCC dimension with a soft landing.’’
With the release comes a sinister music video, created by Studio Crème and Bas van der Poel, accompanying the “Japanese Trains” A2 track of the record. The gloomy film, which is streamable below, is composed of live game footage captured inside various train simulators and shows hypnotic artificial landscapes combined with bold Japanese-inspired graphics.
