John Lakveet – The Force of Reason
CD, Groove Unlimited, 2004


John Lakveet’s “The Force of Reason” contains some vintage electronic music, presented in shorter tracks than is common in the genre, in which the sequencer plays an important role.

The album kicks off with the sparkling, up-tempo sequencing of “Leibniz And Contingency” in which quite some retro fx’s show up.
Overall, Mr Lakveet has a versatile, melodic approach to sequencer music which shows some resemblance to the music of his country mate Dom F. Scab, but with a bit more of a synth-pop feel.

But there are also several ambient atmospheric outings featured on this album, as heard on “Copleston Aperture” and the “Descartes, The Lance Argument”.
At almost the end of the album we find the cinematic 24-minute “Platon in the cave of mirrors”. It offers nice turns and twist as it nicely merges a ’80 electronic music feel with bright soundscapes, rhythms and fx’s.

Next to a couple of slightly experimental sounds (“Nihil-ibuster”), the eight tracks on “The Force of Reason” hold something for everyone. But most of all, it’s an engaging and well composed work of electronic music.
