In ’Harbour’ eavily distorted rhythms build like the swirl of a storm, a distress signal popping on, radio distortion. As implosion seems near a moment of calm sets in and a less maniacal beat assumes control. But the unpredictable hammers resume once more, thumping above a sheet of glinting and sharp precipitation. ‘eeAea’ is a different experience. It is based on surer footing, concrete beneath the limbs. A thump, incessant, pounds in the background, giving clarity to a winding sigh and dissonant percussion. Yet there remains melody in the madness, with beautiful hi ends peeking through the atmosphere and a strut which surges towards conclusion. The conclusion ends (unresolved) at ‘Valentina Lane’. It is a street of mystery, set upon a gas of syncopated flashes and airy scrapes. An uncomfortable synthesiser hums in the background, darting high and interjecting low. It is as deliberate as ‘Harbour’ is chaotic; it is a tight, cogent finale.

  • Trax Very nice and deep release, great variety of tracks. All good.
  • Tommy Four Seven Epic deep dark journeys. Sure players.
  • URB Emotive and at times full of discord, Lakker's new release on SA is maybe their best to date.
  • Terence Fixmer Shaking brain release.'eeAea' Love the mood in it.
  • Nowa Muzyka This is the most beautiful and in the same time the most melancholic experimental output that I have ever heard in my whole life. Pure beauty.
  • Norman Nodge Will play 'Valentina Lane', this is the track here that touches me most.
  • Hyponik 'eeAea' is quality, great EP all together.
  • Dave Clarke Very eerie, but splendid nonetheless.
  • Subsekt 3 faultless tracks. I thought 'Harbour' would be my favourite because its very pounding. Then I heard 'eeAea', which is so off kilter its brilliant. Then I heard 'Valentina Lane', expecting it to be one of the spacy SA tracks to finish.. and it sounds like some lost classic, that you only heard once at a dying party; just as the sun was starting creeping around the curtains. Wicked stuff. Love Lakker.
  • Truss Lakker are some of the best sound designers in techno and this EP demonstrates their abilities to the full. Stunning.
