Lakker

Since the early 2000s, Dara (aka Arad) and Ian (aka Eomac) have been the brains behind the slugged out, bass heavy electronic outfit 'Lakker'. Both originating from Ireland, but currently based in Berlin, they paint intricate sonic tapestries ranging from haunting Arctic soundscapes to bass driven warehouse weight. Heavily inspired by the chopped up, processed sounds of the 90s, their humanist slant on electronic music has received support from the likes of Aphex Twin, Laurent Garnier, Lucy, Blawan and Surgeon. In the last few years Lakker have received high praise for their numerous releases on Killekill, Blueprint (one of Britain's most influential techno labels), Love Love, Candela Rising, Stroboscopic Artefacts, and most recently on acclaimed Belgian label R&S Records with the 'Containing a Thousand' and 'Mountain Divide' EPs. Moreover, they have a distinctive visual style, reflected in their AV show, where subtle changes in the music are reflected in the patient and detailed morphing of original self-evolving visual content, each show being a unique experience. This distinctive style has recieved support from creative hubs such as 'CDM'.
