Fantastic new album release from Danny Wolfers under his ever reliable Legowelt guise. Returning to the bosom of one of his familiars, Clone, 'The Paranormal Soul' is an exemplary collection of dance tracks that operate far more than just a homage the the heady, bygone era of house and techno from just before the turn of the millennia.
‘Paranormal Soul’ is the sum of Wolfers moving from the more conceptual style of some of his previous works. It concerns itself with mood and the more primal basics of dance music; less a budget homage to cheap, exploitation films of the 80s and retro-futuristic pastiche that we heard on his releases for labels such as Bunker and his own Strange Life label.
Opening with the dreamy, Detroit-style techno tribute of 'Danger in the Air' the album shuffles deftly between the styles of break-beat house / hardcore ('Rave Till Dawn (Edit)'), acid-house ('I Only Move for U' and 'A Cold Winters Day'). ‘Paranormal Soul’ may reference some music from a treasured era, but this is Legowelt at his most candid and most accomplished. Essential.
