Download: Legowelt’s 1981 Korg Mono/Poly Synth Sample Pack

I’ve been one of the lucky ones who has been privy to a pre-listen of Legowelt’s new album, due for a release on Clone this year and it’s stunning, some say the best ever and I wouldn’t argue with that. That’s not all Mr. Wolfers has been busying himself with of late, as he has just this week upped a samplepack to his site from his 1981 Korg Mono/Poly synthesizer.

“After the Roland Juno 106 sample kit I am proud to present another
300 samples in wav format from my legendary cult all Analog 1981 Korg Mono/Poly synthesizer.
Specially programmed for U…Juicy big Basses, Occult Space Pads, 
Interdimensional Arpeggios, Futuristic Synthetic Drums, Metaphysical Atmospheres
and a lot more…………all ready to take your music into the next sphere of existence! 

“Download your copy in a zip here and load them into your
Tracker/Ableton/FruityLoops/Reason/Electribe/ASR/MPC2000/Amiga whatever u use
and enter a fresh plain of unrestrained inspiration!”

There’s a donate option on the site too, so it’s free but for those with a concience and commercial intentions you can show your appreciation with your Paypal account.

Video: Skudge – Wonder Stories [ACR Mix]

Answer Code Request also produces under his mother given name Patrick Gaiser albeit with a limited Discography at this point in time. He’s Berlin / Ostgut crew and under the wing of Marcel Dettman secured this remix for Skudge. Different to his more upfront techno he releases under his own name, ACR is more genre defying formed of broken, organic sounds (all produced on Ableton for the geeks) underpinned with a moving sub bass line. Look to Two Lone Swordsmen and Al Tourettes if you want to categorise it better.

Watch out for a London date later this year and a release on Dettman’s MDR Recordings.

Out Now: Tudor Acid – Wrong Side of Day Pt 8 (Tudor Beats)


 As we’ve said many times before, there’s something about the architectural drum patterns of Tudor Acid, and for his 8th Wrong Side of Day release (that means there are only two left in the series) Richard Wigglesworth reached new ethereal heights. 

The music’s inspired from a recent Felixian experience (freefalling) and has been mastered in 5.1 surround, on DVD and put to images collated from Wigglesworth’s homstead of Bristol. Some words from the man himself.

“These tracks were written around the time I did a skydive for charity.  When you are falling through the clouds at 120 mph two miles above the earth, you really do experience a very distilled form of terror.  But what is almost more troubling is the very eerie stillness you experience just before you jump out of the plane.”
