Since the early 2000s, Dara and Ian have been the brains behind the slugged out, bass heavy techno outfit 'Lakker'. Both originating from Ireland, they paint intricate sonic tapestries ranging from haunting Arctic soundscapes to sub-driven warehouse weight. Inspired heavily by the chopped up, processed sounds of the 90s, their humanist slant on techno has received play-outs by the likes of Aphex Twin, Laurent Garnier, Surgeon and Blawan. Following their debut vinyl release on Killekill, the 'Deathmask EP' saw the duo hone in on their skill of inter-weaving functionality and beauty in their music. Since this they have released many more EPs, managing to garner interest solely based around their talent without succumbing to trends. With the introduction of their new AV show, in which the subtle changes in the music are reflected in the patient and detailed morphing of their visual content, Lakker are seeing more and more attention from electronic music lovers around the world.
