There’s been zero shortage of staggering archival works resurfacing on Glasgow’s Ampoule Records. Following on from some vital Pub repressings in 2020, the imprint take a deep dive into the criminally long-out-of-print techno and IDM perfection of Lucky & Easy — straight out of East Kilbride, Scotland and into your ears! There’s a touch of The Black Dog and Detroit school innovation to Cheeky Speaker, felt through the uncanny luminosity of pads on ambient-leaning cuts ‘Puddle Pup’ and ‘Night Rainbows’, each driven by strange, superhuman rhythms. It’s been almost a decade since the last Lucky & Easy release (that we know of), but Cheeky Speaker speaks to their enduring influence.
