Danny Wolfers is one of electronic music’s inevitable forces. He has put out an elaborate body of work that merges Chicago and Detroit jams, afro funk and RPG and arthouse cinema OST's - co-shaping the The Hague sound in the process. Fueled by a non-stop work ethic, he has released through a multitude of aliases, of which "Legowelt" is presumably his best known and most steadily used one.
On “Inner Voices of a Clown” Wolfers revives his Polarius moniker after a near 20 year hiatus with five raw and rugged, lo-fi electro tracks. The Commodore Amiga 1200, a staple in the artist’s studio since his beginnings in the nineties, forms the center piece of gear, rendering the EP a distilled and hermetic endeavor. As the tape permeated drums unequivocally throb forward, the acid gets grittier and sweatier, driving the bare bone leads to the verge of derailment. Wolfers, perceived to often prefer melody over rhythm, this time resolutely opts for the pulse and pattern - letting the cuts run freely, modulating them on the fly, guided by intuition. Justifiably the artist note that came along with the premasters read: “made with as little brain effort as possible”.
The EP is a return in style for one of Wolfers’ most lauded yet obscure projects - an indispensable selection of club tools, ready to do the job on any dance floor, be it in the big room or the sparsely lit bunker.
