The 1990s saw a strange revolution take place in The Hague. Holland's third largest city became the unlikely center for a group of retro-minded artists dedicated to electro. Producing a sound that's hard, like their American counterparts (think Drexciya and Aux 88), but tempered by the pop appeal of Italo disco, The Hague's electro scene quickly garnered a large cult following. One of its most prolific artists is Danny Wolfers (a.k.a. Legowelt). Getting his start in the late '90s, Wolfers has built a reputation as an expert producer of smart, dancefloor-oriented electro cuts that he describes as a combination of (among other things) "slam jack The Hague electronix" and "romantic ghetto technofunk."
