Various Artists Damian Lazarus: Suck My Deck
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Resist/Bugged Out
Lazarus deserves credit for bringing underground-ish electronic music to wider audiences; he blends established indie techno artists with promising upstarts and leftfield selections while keeping things bumpin‘ in sizable clubs. Suck My Deck (guffaw) finds Lazarus embracing moody, old-school Euro trance, shimmering minimal techno, tripnotic tech-house, a peak-time Alter Ego banger remixed by Ewan Pearson, dubbed-out rock weirdness by The Stranglers, and Superpitcher‘s majestic, soft-focus techno remix of M83. Idiosyncratically updating the old cliché about DJs taking you on a journey, Lazarus-and his deck-earn your suction.
