Legowelt – “And The Beat Goes On”

October 23

Dutch producer Danny Wolfers, aka Legowelt, just uploaded this track to his Soundcloud, a curious but charming interpretation of The Whsipers’ 1980 boogie hit “And the Beat Goes On.” Incorporating the glorious muted tonality of budget synths captured on normal-bias cassette tape, it preserves the basic structure of the song, minus of the vocals (aside from Legowelt’s timid recitation of “and the beat goes on” peeking out occasionally from under his thick blanket of sound. Call it chillwave, call it abstract funk, I definitely call it compelling, coming from a man who proclaims on his very-retro website that he’s been “running deep in a silent corner of the internet since 1998.”

You can grab this track for free from Legowelt’s Soundcloud page.
