Mixed bag of goodies - about the artists + press photos
Under the name DJ Legba, the Danish multi artist Tobi Twang has compiled a collection of electronica
tracks from near and far, delivered by both hotshots and newcomers. Except for a couple of exceptions,
all tracks have not had previous release.
What is electronica really, and is it even possible to call it a genre? Electronica might be defined as
all the stuff that flows between the ordinarily recognized electronic genres. Thereby it has a very broad
span. Never the less, most electronica compilation releases have a very narrow focus. Are they trying to
catch the essence of something, which they are afraid might disappear between their fingers? DJ Legba is
not afraid! He knows that all you need is a little bit of magic. The present collection of tracks is not
narrow, but it does stay within (almost) non-vocal electronica.
In spite of the broad spectrum of musical moods represented on this CD, DJ Legba has succeeded in creating
an elegantly complete atmosphere. No particular sub genre dominates, and it is precisely because of this
balance that the album has success in maintaining a thread throughout its runtime, without exploiting any
single track or tracks as support pole(s).
As a historical side note: Papa Legba is, in the voodoo religion, the deity who controls the communication
between the spirits and the humans. He is at the cross roads, at the gate holding the key. This compilation
release can be seen as a portal into the world of electronica, an introduction for the outsider who wants
to get inside. But it is also holds a vault of delicious treasures for the experienced electronica listener.
