Boomkat Product Review:
Lakker run their ‘Época’ album thru a barrage of filters and studio sorcery for a dank, chopped and screwed dub version.
Vulturing on their bones and gristle of their last album, the duo worked at Chris “Kamkaze Space Programme” Jarman’s Soundcraft Spirit ‘Studio’ 24-8-6 mixing console to reclaim and regurgitate ‘Época’ and the carrion of their extensive catalogue in a slower style nodding to DJ Screw via Mica Levi and Demdike Stare with grungey, cinematic results.
The hour long mixtape tape renders a lesser-heard side of Lakker, going hands-on-the-desk for an immersive testament to their live remixing and manacled sound design chops. Original elements are torn apart, restructured and rearranged into a maze of classic delays and FX, forking from darkside synth pressure to gutted electro-acoustic spaces and concrete rhythm that sets into petrified feedback by journey's end.
