- Containing A Thousand by Lakker
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 27 February 2014
This is Dublin duo Lakker’s debut on R&S after a decade of making well-regarded techno for a variety of imprints. From the sounds of opener ‘Containing a Thousand‘ its a corker.
Beginning with some skittery beatwork the track is a slow-moving plume of gorgeous tones. The grainy trumpet-like lead has the sound used in early Plaid or even Third Eye Foundation. This is joined by further bursts of static percussion and a distorted bass. Finally as the track slows to a halt, a series of Aphexy balls of melody spring up. ‘Mausoleum ‘has churning percussion at once booming and fizzy over which shards of synth pepper the track. Like the first track this builds beautifully with layers being added.
On the flip ‘K’antu‘ is more conventional bouncy techno but again Plaid springs to mind, whilst the final ‘Thermohaline‘ turns everything on its head with a barrage of hissy noise opening up into dancefloor-friendly metallic techno, the noise placed on top though gives the track a more out-there feel.
A 12” of two halves then, the a side is more tuneful, more esoteric, the B gets your body moving but is darker. A welcome return and all expertly made and produced.
