Lax, the second full-length from Berlin-based techno composer Joachim Landesvatter, demonstrates significant growth since 2003‘s Lava. Smoothly combining elements of minimal house, hip-hop, and jazz, the beats are complimented by warm loops. Constantly evolving, each track assumes a narrative structure, making Lax a densely moving and refined effort. From the sprawling glitch of "In." to the jazzy undertones of "Mank.," the record provides soothing ambiance while provoking closer examination...and it‘ll make you wanna dance."
