Armed with impressive analogue hardware synths, drumming machines and noise boxes, the Dutch electro artist LudoWic is poking and prodding around in the dirt of electronic music. The gritty, noisy and dark electro music emerging from the cracks in the dirt is a sound that only few others can match. LudoWic (real name: Thijs Lodewijk) released his debut album, A Blinding Light Moment in late 2015 on Wic Recordings. A Blinding Light Moment describes the exact moment that visual elements and music fit each other so perfectly, you get blinded for a split second. A year later, the analogue virtuoso released Dream Content, an EP about the eerie phenomenon that we call dreams.
Now he returns with his second album Elka Village. For making this album LudoWic has sought his own Elka Village. He locked himself in a Dutch chapel for a week. In this peace and seclusion LudoWic largely wrote, produced and recorded the album himself, accompanied by analog, vintage modular synths, drum machines and lots of other gear. LudoWic on the theme of the album: "The need to occasionally move your thoughts to a miniature village, and lead a double life in there to escape reality, was the inspiration for writing this album."
Three times there were guests in the chapel to write and record a track with LudoWic. The first guest was Kevin Stunnenberg from The Cinema Escape and frontman of the famous Dutch rock band Birth Of Joy. The second guest was Tom Broshuis, guitarist from the band Mister and Mississippi. The last guest was the artist/singer Wende known from her new show #Mens.
