Legowelt returns as Gladio

Land­ing on the depend­able L.I.E.S. records is the rebirth of Glad­io the slave of Rome. 

Legow­elt is an artist of many alias­es. Some are more preva­lent than oth­ers, how­ev­er, they always guar­an­tee that unique touch of qual­i­ty you expect from the Dutch­man. In this case, Legow­elt revis­its one of his most cult monikers Glad­io. The medieval-inspired pseu­do­nym first came into the pub­lic domain back in 2003 with the debut EP Slave of Rome’ land­ing on the mighty Bunker Records. In 2007, he returned with the Hadri­an’s Wall EP’ which fol­lowed suit from the debut release but land­ed on the Scot­tish imprint Mighty Robot Recordings. 

Now, more than ten years on from the Hadri­an’s Wall EP, Legow­elt will tap back into the mys­ti­cal realms with the rebirth of Glad­io. The forth­com­ing out­ing will unfold onto L.I.E.S. records this com­ing May. Across the sev­en-track LP, titled Means To Free­dom’, we see shades of the old Legow­elt sound. As such in the raw and stripped back cuts Of Hyper­borea, Olym­pus Pansper­mia, Tem­ple of Per­ve­sius and Fist of Glad­io. The oth­er three tracks that make up the LP, Wild Hors­es, De Astra Plan­eti and Glad­io is Free, are the real dance­floor-ready offer­ings. High in tem­po, unre­lent­ing by nature and fused togeth­er with bold rhythms and intri­cate synth work­outs. Get an ear­ful of this one below.
