Lakker's Tundra album is a rich enough beast to begin with, so minds out to be blown by the forthcoming existence of Tundra Remixed. This release offers a sneak preview on DJ-friendly 12" wax, with both Kyoka and Mark Fell stepping up with versions. Fell's piece is especially strong, hammeringly repetitive and a little bit obtuse. On R&S.

Lakker certainly wowed us with Tundra, a recent R&S gem, filled with frosty, twisted, almost 2-stepping techno bangers and atmospheric washes. Of course, an album so ambitious in its construction lends itself well to remixing, and who better than Mark Fell and Raster Noton recruit Kyoka to smash them apart?
Mark Fell rebuilds ‘Oktavist’ into a stuttering, almost footwork-y exercise in speed garage/techno hybridism, very minimal, just various percussions blipping around alongside a simple woody synth. Driving me mad right now. ‘Three Songs’ gets strung out til the perc lines get sticky and the synths ghoul-like and indeterminate. A more straight 4x4 beat clangs away underneath mostly, taking little breaks to chop around some of Lakker’s synth stabbery. This one is more dynamic than the A, which won’t appeal to everyone. Likewise, the B is ok but seems like everything is amped up more than the beat itself so feels slightly weak as a whole.
