Lokomotiv is a drum band founded in 2000 by percussionist Jo Zanders and initially mainly focusing on Brazilian batucada rhythms. The band soon began looking for an identity of its own though, a sound they describe as "flesh & blood electronic music". 'LKMTIV', a five tracks counting EP and the band's third release to date, contains a mix of tropical percussion rhythms and electronic dubby and techno-like effects and it are the latter which give the tracks on 'LKMTIV' a somewhat industrial vibe (nicely matched by the EP's cover design).
