Ortrotasce- Self-titled

Disko Obscura proudly presents Ortrotasce’s self-titled debut album. A binary selection of the artist’s prolific work, “Ortrotasce” is a two-headed beast. Side A opens with the brilliant “World Un Related”, underscored by anxious synths, driving bassline, and spectral vocals. “New System” follows suit with throbbing drums and a woeful guitar rhythm, while the instrumentals “Diffuse” and “Shatter” feature heavy cold wave synths and dizzying sequences. Side B turns feral headlined by “Losing Mind,” an EBM behemoth driven by loaded industrial percussion and savage singing/shouting. The same severity surfaces in “The Body”, “Passion”, and “Expanding Room”, the latter a tenebrous instrumental marked by clever and infectious bass lines and rhythms.

Crystal Cult 2080

Irrepressible Dutchman Legowelt released a new album. Entitled ‘Crystal Code 2080’, it came out on Crème Organization and has been preceded by a sampler EP that featured one track from it.

The ‘2080’ part of the album title is taken from the Roland JV2080, a legendary digital synthesizer from the nineties that was used a lot in the making of the album. Bought second-hand in Tokyo for a couple of hundred dollars, it lends the record a very dewy eyed soul, whilst the ‘Crystal’ part of the title stands for the self-made ‘DIY germanium crystal compressor’ Legowelt used throughout the writing process.

The album itself features ten new tracks of pure Legowelt music mainly recorded in The Hague in the past year, but also on the road during tours of LA, the Californian desert, Tokyo (which spawned ‘Crystal Cult 2080’) and Tejada Gran Canaria (where ‘The Future of Myself’ was written.) Where his last album The Paranormal Soul was an organic trip into misty forests, this one seems more concerned with medieval spirits; it’s deeper, darker and the whole thing is tied together by a more coherent sense of ancient alchemy.

Given the use of a DIY germanium crystal compressor during production, it’s no wonder everything feels warm, fuzzy and mystic in a way that draws your attention in like that fabled philosopher’s stone… glare too long and you might just turn to stone. Right from the opening track the mood is so encapsulating you are drawn right into Danny Wolfers’ mysterious electronic world. From there various different tempos are explored and plenty of famed synthesiser work comes to the fore, wrapping grooves in trippy themes, impish spirits and plenty of organic lushness.

Crystal Cult 2080 is sure to prove another lucid and distinctive chapter in the ever-captivating story that is the musical career of Legowelt.
