LEGOWELT

What’s so great about Dutch electronic music? You mean, except for

the original ideas, the high quality level and the international recognition?

It’s the humour! What to think about Legowelt tracks like Stumvogel

or Total Pussy Control? Exactly. Danny Wolfers is a one of a kind

producer and has been releasing music on various formats and under

various names ever since the early nineties, and keeps on doing so

under much praise. If you’re in for something truly unique, then check

out Legowelt.

THE GATHERING

Blues Brother Castro has often been called the hardest working band in

Holland. They recently released their first single and video for the song

Drunken Boy off the Money Maker Me-album. Having played across

Europe and the US on various occasions BBC is emerging on the international

music-scene. No wonder they named their second album

‘Fun’, because they are certainly having a lot of it-taking their Pixieslike

sound with them on the way.

A decade ago the Gathering pioneered the currently popular Goth trend in

the Netherlands. Singer Anneke van Giersbergen became the role model

of a legion of similar bands. Since then, the band has moved into ‘trip

rock’ territory, as demonstrated at Glastonbury 2003 or on their various

tours throughout Mexico. While Within Temptation may be better known

nowadays, it’s safe to say that they wouldn’t exist in the way they currently

do without The Gathering. The band from Oss has left the goth-path to

explore unknown territories and are eager to take you with them.
