AllMusic Review by

Groove Unlimited is certainly one of the top labels for Berlin school e-music and European space music. Kees Aerts and Ron Boots (the owners) are very careful and judicious in choosing what to release as a Groove CD. Epikus is a direct and overtly sequenced CD by John Lakveet. The graphic artwork parallels his musical sojourn as he wends his way on a path to examine "epic" events -- past, present and future. The sci-fi accoutrements and metallic textures compliment each other as Lakveet surrounds them with deep atmospheric timbres. He uses heavy sequences and languid rhythms to complete the soundscapes and spacescapes. This is an essential space music CD. It will appeal to fans of Hemisphere, Rudy Adrian, Tangerine Dream and Ron Boots.
