Ian McDonnell a.k.a. Eomac, also known as 1/2 of electronic duo Lakker, is an artist, composer, producer, label owner and DJ. He has released genre-spanning music via The Trilogy Tapes, Stroboscopic Artefacts, Bedouin Records, Killekill and recently his own Eotrax imprint.
Alongside this he is one half of duo noeverything with producer / vocalist Laura Kilty (aka LAIR) and a number of other collaborations yet to see the light of day. As a DJ and live performer he has played across Europe, Asia, US, Canda and Latin America at festivals such as Mutek, Atonal, Norberg and Unsound, and in clubs such as Berghain, Tresor, Concrete and Circus Tokyo. He also presents a monthly podcast, exploring sounds old and new from all over the world.
All of this activity has garnered support and attention from far afield and Eomac can count the likes of Thom Yorke (who included a number of Eomac tracks in his ‘Moon Shaped Pool’ release playlists) and Aphex Twin among his many fans.
His 2016 LP ‘Bedouin Trax’ LP drew from obscure Middle Eastern music, digging deep into a dark mysticism for the dancefloor. 'Bedouin Trax' part II is already in the works, and he has just released his new solo album 'Reconnect' on Eotrax, which continues his exploration of the furthest reaches of physical, visceral music for body and soul.
