Purposely Uncertain Field


Gatefold double LP version. Includes CD. Leipzig-based Martin Enke, or Lake People, as the majority has come to know him, has definitely taken his time on his debut album Purposely Uncertain Field, given his early success and the quick development of his distinctive sound. Still, it wasn't until 2012's Point EP on Krakatau (KKT 006EP) that his music became enjoyable for a wider audience. Thanks to Dixon and Âme and numerous other DJs who included the tracks in their sets and mixes, the Point EP can be considered a game changer in Lake People's career. Without riding a big hype wave, Enke 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, Enke also became a sought-after remixer for such acts as Lusine on Ghostly International and Guy Gerber & Dixon on Gerber's label Rumors, founded in 2014. A loyal fan base of his meditative, somehow spiritual, yet powerful house sound has grown over the years and made Enke an in-demand producer and celebrated live act. After beginning his releases on Permanent Vacation with 2013's Uneasy Hiding Places EP (PERMVAC 117EP), which included the stand-out track "Brooklyn", and continuing with a contribution to 2014's If This Is House I Want My Money Back 3 (PERMVAC 120CD/EP), Enke has found in Permanent Vacation the perfect home for his debut album. With 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 album's 11 tracks and expands his already rich sound universe. Above his straighter dancefloor aspects, Enke elaborates his approaches to include a certain mid '90s electronica vibe and ambient-like soundscapes with a very cinematic feel to them. Thus he brilliantly manages the difficult task of creating a transcendent and consistent album without losing any tension over the full length.
