crystal cult 2080
2021 Repress. of this 2014 LP.. The '2080' part of the album title is taken from the Roland JV2080, a legendary digital synthesizer from the nineties that was used a lot in the making of the album. Bought second-hand in Tokyo for a couple of hundred dollars, it lends the record a very dewy eyed soul, whilst the 'Crystal' part of the title stands for the self-made 'DIY germanium crystal compressor' Legowelt used throughout the writing process. The album itself features ten new tracks of pure Legowelt music... synthesiser work comes to the fore, wrapping grooves in trippy themes, impish spirits and plenty of organic lushness.
