Resident Advisor review Struggle & Emerge premiere at Rewire Festival

Lakker premiered their newest work, Struggle & Emerge, an audio-visual piece based on the archives of the Netherlands Institute For Sound And Vision. Holland’s tempestuous and inextricable relationship with water was the subject. The result was a complex and circuitous route through sunny, bass-heavy dancehall into harsher more abstract noise and techno. But as ever with Lakker, melodies prevailed, made, in this case, from noise. It was another masterful live performance from the duo.

“It’s the history and the story behind those sounds which give it a real context and an emotional weight to the sounds. You hear these stories, these people who had suffered because of the floods and you can write the songs and music with that context in you.”
