Lapti - Somehow

Some reviewers of Lapti's sound in the past have noticed a leaning towards places imagined, rather than those real: "This is the style of a unique individual. Lapti's output is a real balancing act between sounds, thought, and feeling. It's inspired both by tragedy and a utopian happiness, too. Together with aggression and moments of cacophony this music offers the emotional range needed by multicellular organisms for a full-blooded lifestyle!"

The building blocks of emotional, audible maximalism are sometimes listed as chiptune synthesizers, "a mighty bass line, and real dancefloor drive." When it all falls into place, Lapti then finds himself celebrated as "The #1 guy in the village. The local guru of wonky."

Before we reach that closing, witty fanfare, though, several less appealing issues have been touched upon. We're presented with the presumption, for example, that tragedy simply "is," while happiness is "utopian"! Then, on a less obvious level, we find other elements of a self-deprecating outlook that defines the world's biggest country as a "village."

Daily experience can offer little that's aesthetically appealing.
