Lackluster has been featured on Kahvi from waay back - 1999 being the first time he was feaured. Since then, he's been critically acclaimed on many 'real world' labels including DeFocus and Merck and most recently Kahvi: Commercial (for digital distribution). CDR#2 is the highly sought after release that was even being sold on ebay for a short time, hard to find in hard format and just for you here it is being made available in download format. Loads of favorites on this release for me, perhaps me me me me me me clenches the title of fave track for this release with bothersome (mothermix) a close second. If you'd like to support Lackluster directly, you might like to check out these releases on iTunes: What you want isn't what you need, Container, Showcase, Spaces and Wrapping and Slice at Beatport. Enjoy this rare and historical release from Lackluster.
It's a decent release, as Lackluster has always been known for doing good work, whether here on Kahvi or over on Monotonik. But I found this album to be too uneven as a whole. Too glitchy, chopped-up, and otherwise hard to listen to. Some of the cuts just blocked the music entirely; just too hard to focus. And this is coming from someone who likes pieces such as "Zero Million Barrels of Oil Per Day". I still give it the occasional re-listen, but I always have to pick and choose which tracks I'm willing to sit through.
Too much mish-mash, but there's enjoyment to be found if you're willing to sort through all the tracks.
