Squeaky Lobster (Belgium).
This Brussels-based crustacean’s cosmic craft has to be heard to be believed. Sounds spring to life from forgotten corners of your speakers, each one battling for your attention yet always emerging at the right time and the right place, painting its part of the picture. Shards of broken breakbeat litter the sea-bed and form a solid back bone for this invertebrate’s innovative use of samples, synths and instrumentation. Leading you from one vast soundscape to the next, complete with unexpected plot twists in foreign waters, Squeaky Lobster’s beats take you out of the aquarium and into the abyss.
From jungle rave tracks with no bass or drums to ghosts of 80s sci-fi soundtracks, Lapti has a way of making the old sound new. His unique choice of lo-fi samples in combination with surgical synthetic elements results in a strange feeling of nostalgia for the future. A credit to the Moscow beat scene for many years, Lapti has built his own world to escape to during the winter months. Hop in the DeLorean for some ice-cold-electro-retro-future-funk.
This is both artist’s very first vinyl release.
