Boomkat Product Review:
Lukid joins the Lib Tech gang with his first release in nearly two years.
A producer's producer and a perennial outsider persistently mutating styles in the cracks of current techno, electronica and bass music, Lukid still evades any net we might chuck at him with 'Crawlers'. The A-side opener, 'Nine' may well be known to you for it's brittle, anguished lead motif which was snatched by Evian Christ for his 'Propeller' on the 'Waterfall' EP. Here it sounds more sombre and petrified, shaken up with rasping drums and bass beside the strobing spectres of 'La Cucaracha'. B-side, he thwacks off angular, flinty electronics somewhere between Bandshell and Vessel in 'The Brick Burner', and bobs on with the blunted, droning house of 'Born In Bosnia'.
