t isn’t often an artist seems to materialize from nowhere with a sound so disinterested in following any conventional rules that it inspires equal measures bafflement and astonishment, but in 2012, with the release of the ‘Unknown Vectors’ EP, Sd Laika did just that. Taking the already alien sounds of grime music as a starting off point and abrasively twisting them into something even more unknowable, Laika had developed a sound that defied any easy categorization. Two years later Dummy Magazine would come to refer to this record as “one of the most jaw-droppingly inventive debuts in recent memory and ought to be considered ‘the other ‘Cold Mission’” (in reference to the highly acclaimed 2013 album by Logos.
After ‘Unknown Vectors’ Sd Laika became something of a mystery, disappearing from the scene altogether, leaving behind him a small but hardcore cult fanbase convinced they’d glimpsed something very special in those 5 tracks. It was only in 2013 when Tri Angle approached Sd Laika that a new record began to take shape. This record would end up consisting of songs Sd Laika had recorded in 2011 and 2012, songs he’d convinced himself would never see the light of day. For various reasons it looked likely ‘Unknown Vectors’ would wind up being Laika’s one and only ever release, which is why the label are so excited (and as huge fans, relieved) to announce the release of his debut album ‘That’s Harakiri’.
Sitting somewhere between the current wave of leftfield abstract analogue techno, the swing of UK funky and darkness of grime, 'That's Harakiri' is an intense, disorientating, out-there listen.
