Review Tom Boogizm // All Night Long at The White Hotel
Lack // Make It Circular (Livity Sound)18-06-2021
Following on from the success of 2020’s ‘Inside’ EP and previous releases on Cong Burn and Blank Mind, Manchester’s Lack returns to Livity Sound with a brand new EP of hybridised and dubbed-out techno cuts.
“I wanted to try and create a sense of space or calm within the tracks, even if only subtle,” Lack said of the release. “I suppose it was a reflection on the crazy state of the world and needing to find space within myself to stay grounded and get through it.”
From the deep bass and irresistible skank of ‘Grapefruit’ to the rapid yet ice-cool propulsion of ‘Microshift’ and the spacious yet energised rhythms of ‘Make It Circular’ and ‘Constant’, this new record further explores Lack’s fractured techno aesthetic, skilfully joining the dots between broken dub techno and vintage dubstep.
Out July 9 – cop it via the Livity Sound Bandcamp.
