Lackluster is a native of Finland; however, his association with Ireland is strong. In the 2000s Esa Ruoho aka Lackluster lived in Ireland where he released music for mightly labels like Merck, U-Cover and deFocus. His live sets in the Irish techno scene brought him both attention and acclaim and he hooked up with Dublin ambient label Psychonavigation. It was his remix of Sitting Pretty for Manta that inspired Desy Balmer to work with Esa and it is a privilege to be releasing original music by such an original artist as Lackluster to Nice & Nasty. The Detro EP is a collection of Four uncompromising trax that fuse anti-rhythm, detuned melody, abstract beats and deep nasty funk. Lackluster displays elements of Minimal techno, dubstep and Detroit techno but in fairness Lackluster and his music is unique and more at home with the Sheffield bleep scene of the early 1990s without loosing its place in modern music. As you can tell from the waffle and hype here it is difficult to pigeon hole Lackluster and describe his music using standard vocabulary and grammar as the only way to describe it would be to recreate language for that specific purpose (and I don't have the time or ability so please excuse and accept my apologies for the simulacrum). Lackluster has two rare gem remixes of the debut hit from Nice & Nasty, Bolivian Angel by Ubiquity which is only available on a limited promo CD; however, subsequent remixes for Heretics of Disko, Spearchukka, Tomi Chair and Mick Chillage paved the way for his debut release on Nice & Nasty, Detro. Bizarre as it seems, Detro EP that features 4 original pieces of electronica is released after the remix EP of the eponymous track by Birdcage, Numerical and Nachklangmusik & remlaB. Both Nice & Nasty and Lackluster tend not to conform to the norms of society per se but even for them this is a little odd but nonetheless adds to the over all ambience of Detro...
