Lo Pack - VA LOMEK024
Zerotwentyfour: the area code of Nijmegen, the Dutch city in which the adventurous label Lomechanik has its roots. 024 is also the catalogue number for the new compilation on this label: the twentyfourth release already on Lomechanik. This release is the third compilation in its sort on the label – after the succesful compilations ‘Zonnebrand’ and ‘Ondergrond’, now Lomechanik drops ‘Lo Pack’. Lomechanik has built up a big network within the Dutch electronic music scene, which the composition of this compilation shows. On Lo Pack new sounds by artists which released before on Lomechanik, like Julien Mier, Julian Edwardes, Terugklap, Raadsel and Know VA. Besides those some new talents are showcased, with intruiging names like Asterisms, Kadugodi, Kalima, MSNTHRPX, Tablow, Adnt en vd Waal.
The music meanders smoothly between the upbeat, melodic tracks like ‘Bamboo Bracelets’ by Julien Mier, the wonky broken madness by Terugklap in ‘It’s My Thing’ and the more introverted track ‘GAAP’ (which translates as ‘YAWN’) by Raadsel. Within the period of the eighty minutes the compilation lasts you’ll be transported on this cinematic stream of inspired sound. A sound which, despite its broadness, is clearly recognizable as a Lomechanik sound: underground, deep, exciting, broken and full. A sound which goes to show that the future of Dutch electronic music is bright.
