There’s really not much to say about Legowelt and Xosar except that they’re a powerful analog-heavy dynamic duo. Separately, they’ve made some of the purest house and techno around, and together as Xamiga, they’re sure to burn up a dancefloor near you; especially with their LP coming soon on the always-reliable Rush Hour label. The twosome will be gracing Beyond Booking’s Summertime Rolls with a special session. Both Legowelt and Xosar will play solo live sets and play together under the umbrella of Xamiga to sweeten the pot for patrons on the floor. Support will be provided by Detroit native and veteran techno specialist, Patrick Russell. The all-ages affair will take place tomorrow, August 11th, and begin at midnight. Check out the flier down below for more info, as well as Legowelt & Xosar’s video for their latest release on the buzzing L.I.E.S. imprint; which will be released under the alias “Trackman Lafonte & Bonquiqui”.

Previous records like The Warning and Made in the Dark produced hit after hit, and Joe Goddard says he is proud of this new addition to the repertoire and the quintet couldn’t be more excited to start performing. It’s been ten years of making addictive dance floor tunes and winning videos, and it sounds like these guys still have their priorities right. Before the holidays, URB spoke with Goddard to hear the good word.
