Proving their worth on a pair of strong releases for the legendary Belgian imprint R&S, Irish duo Lakker provide their most complete work to date with second LP Tundra. The piece explores the duo’s lasting interest in sound both organically and synthetically sourced, creating the perfect fusion for immersive, cinematic techno that borrows elements of noise, ambient and early 90’s electronica. Rising chimes set the awe-inspiring tone on ‘Echtrae’, followed by the highly atmospheric ‘Milch’ which balances the angelic chants of an all female choir in Dublin to a barbed kick drum. ‘Mountain Divide’ is the longest piece of the album and follows a constantly rising path littered with crystalline synth textures and operatic vocals, whilst ‘Halite’ is a sluggish piece that’s punctuated with sinister chimes. The relatively direct rhythms of the title cut and the brooding ‘Pylon’ keep the ‘floor in mind, yet the pair are arguably at their most potent on the static-heavy, emotive Aphex-indebted closer ‘Herald’.
