Lake Lustre

Raised in London and Perth, producer Joe A. Scerri is now an honorary citizen of the European electronic underground. His debut album Indecipherabilia was released on a tiny Swiss label called Abflug; he has played gigs in Austria, Germany and Swizterland; and his name crops up in numerous obscure international music websites and magazines. Now he's giving Australian audiophiles a taste of his Lake Lustre project. Scerri spent some time in Cuba collecting new samples for his sonic slice 'n' dice mix, which he will be revealing to Perth, Sydney and Melbourne audiences. Expect serene soundscapes and eccentric electronica from this self-described "multi-disciplined illusionist". Ramon Lobato, CitySearch, June 2005.
