    LAKKER are Dublin bassed Ian McDonnell (also known severally as EOMAC) and Dara Smith. The duo have a long history working together, beginning in 2001, in a band called :undermine:. They formed LAKKER around the same time and began a long journey through harsh electronics, breakcore and noise.
    These boys have been stretching and stirring the underground electronic scene and sound for years, known widely for eclectic sets that can jumpa round with little respect for conventional wisdom, leaving dancefloors often in a very sweaty state of speechlessness!
    Their set at this years Jigs and Rigs Festival on Rathlin island is great evidence of these innovators live impact and can be checked here -
    The LAKKER sound has been pushed further and further into the unknown, from hauntingly beautifuly melodies to elastic hip-hop breaks.
    Their latest release SPIDER SILK (due out on a stunning white vinyl, complete with Dara’s screen-prints) is to Berlin’s much-respected Killekill label.
    BAG IT!!
    It is a solid release, affirmed by early festival airplay from no less than APHEX TWIN himself. This one’s gonna be big.
