Nacho Patrol was born in 2008 after Dutchman Danny 'Legowelt' Wolfers bought an old 70's wahwah pedal and immediately jammed out some afro-funk laden tracks. The results were instantly signed to Kindred Spirits Records who, at the same time, invited the man to play with Ethiopian Jazz legend Mulatu Astatke at Paradiso. Bringing together a rag-tag team of musicians who he thought best able to represent the Nacho Patrol sound in a live arena, the show went ahead and a new talent was announced.
When Jimi Helinga (synthesizer, guitar), Marc Alberto (saxophone, percussion) and of course Wolfers himself (synthesizer, drum machines, arrangements) get together, the results are wide-reaching sonic explorations. They journey into Afrobeat infected house and electronica, combining strains of raw Fela Kuti style funk with space-way electronics and deep house rollage always aiming to immerse you in something real on the dancefloor.
Decidely conceptual, the Nacho Patrol output is also playful and exotic. 2011 saw the release of The Africa Jet Band Album on M Division Recordings which only confirmed that. The restless and relentless mind of Danny Wolfers, then, shows no signs of slowing any time soon.
