Irish duo Lakker have been flitting around the fringes of electronic music for over a decade, but it’s in the last few years that their distinctive take on techno has really taken off.

Originally working in the field of early Warp-esque electronics, they eventually incorporated heavier rhythms and technoid structures into their work, picking up releases on cult labels including Stroboscopic Artefacts, Killekill and Blueprint, before signing to seminal label R&S, who put out their widely acclaimed album ‘Tundra’ this year.

Killer podcasts for RA and FACT have evidenced their broad tastes, including J Dilla cuts alongside wonky house and sophisticated electronica, all tied up in the particularly Lakker-esque way that’s made them one of the most intriguing acts around.
