Lake People, the man with a knack for aural subtleties, is spot-on with his first EP for Uncanny Valley. Over the course of four tracks he showcases a quiet different approach compared to the sophisticated House music the Leipzig based artist released on labels like Permanent Vacation or Connaisseur Recordings. On “Break the Pattern” he relies heavily on the good old Boom Tschak-paradigm of Electro, without completely giving up his trademark sound.
“Level Msk” combines staccato-type chords with a stuttering beat that stick in your mind. The acidic “September Futuristic” with its stoic drumming has almost a Krautrock feel to it. On the flipside, the playful “Chords In Chorus” feels like an early contender for this year’s summer anthem with chords and acid lines from heaven. The EP closes with “Pull Off”, a perfect example for Lake People’s ability to compose tracks with an emotional depth.
