One of only two releases on Viewlexx sub-label Holosynthesis, 2002’s ‘Night of the Illuminati’ has long been a cherished component in Danny Wolfer’s rapidly expanding discography. There was a point in time where this exchanged hands for big bucks --even the 2013 repress. But now thankfully every home can own a copy at an affordable price. No self respecting Legowelt fan should be without the album that basically spawned the whole Giallo Disco thing some folks are only latching onto in the past few years.
His music being a sort of second wave of records like this which would go on to inspire a generation of folks making darker strains of Italo/synth disco. Despite obvious influences; it’s pure trademark Legowelt magic throughout, with plenty of sleazy floor burners as well as a scattering of soundtrack style synthy cuts. I love this record, it takes me back to late nights staying up listening to the Cybernetic Broadcasting System radio station in its infancy and still sounds great fourteen years down the line.
Trainspotters note: Lookout for the synth melodies borrowed from Reese’s ‘Rock To The Beat’ on ‘Purification The City Shall Burn Tonight’.
