This month’s show features music from the debut album from Lake People entitled Purposely Uncertain Field which is released on 6th February on Permanent Vacation.
Martin Enke or Lake People as the majority has become to know him has definitely taken his time for his debut album “Purposely Uncertain Field“, given his success from an early stage on and the quick development of the distinctive Lake people sound. But it wasn’t until 2012’s “Point in Time“ EP on Krakatau that his music became enjoyable for a wider audience.
Thanks to Dixon & Ame and numerous other DJs, who included the tracks in their sets and mixes the “Point in Time” EP can be considered a big game changer in Lake People’s career. Without riding a big hype wave Martin lived up to the increasing expectations with a bunch of EPs, on which he refined his production skills. Following the popularity of his own music, Martin also became a sought-after remixer for such acts as Lusine on Ghostly International or Dixon & Guy Gerber on Gerber’s newly found Rumours label. A loyal fan base of his meditative, somehow spiritual, yet powerful house sound grew over the years and made Martin an in demand producer and celebrated live act.
After the fertile collaboration on the “Uneasy Hiding Places“ EP (including the stand-out track “Brooklyn“) and a contribution on the third chapter of the “If This Is House I Want My Money Back“ compilation, Martin has found in Permanent Vacation the perfect home for his debut album.
On “Purposely Uncertain Field“ Lake People doesn’t fall into the trap of repeating himself or recreating a successful formula. Instead he puts all his musical knowledge and his experience into the eleven tracks of the album and expands his already rich sound universe. Above his straighter dancefloor aspects Martin elaborates his approaches to a certain mid 90’s electronica vibe and ambient-like soundscapes with a very cinematic feel to it. Thus he brilliantly manages the difficult task of creating a transcendent and consistent album without losing any tension over the full length.
