(180 g vinyl incl. dl card) following its launch in 2006, slaters l.b. dub corp moniker has been responsible for refreshing house music on labels like mote-evolver and ostgut ton, with the latter hosting the pseudonyms debut album in 2013. side effects is the projects first body of work since then. i wrote the tracks over the last year between being on the road as p.a.s. and playing a few l.b. dub corp house sets, which naturally evolved into side effects almost accidentally luke slater
his hard-edged beats, insistent tones, and occasional flash of devious humor make deutschmann a natural addition to the mote-evolver roster: his natural versatility and clear-minded futurism result in compelling club tracks and dj nights, and his mote evolver debut ep lost in a loop is no exception to this rule. with just a simple schematic to work with, deutschmann does what the best producers do and enlivens those simple instructions until they give an illusion of greater complexity.
the working relationship between producer psyk (a.k.a. manuel anós) and mote-evolver continues with the new silent witness ep, another episode showcasing psyks expert balance of technical variance and affective consistency.longtime fans of psyk will find silent witness to be a very worthy addition to his catalogue, and also a worhty addition to any dj sets that desire to mix raw energy with a carefully tailored sense of sophistication.
(black vinyl repress) this new set of four highly concentrated cuts shows how effective planetary assault systems can be at fueling the imagination by fusing together rhythmic and incidental elements into a unified, animated meshwork, without even a prominent melody to help out. deep heet vol. 4 also showcases slater?s aptitude for choosing just the right moments to deviate from a steady groove.

(josh wink rmx) pairing both an original mix and a spirited re-working by josh wink, kat is a winning synthesis of all the elements that make p.a.s. such a continually relevant player in the game of moving bodies and opening minds.
(q phase & ben sims remixes) the original splanetary funk 12s by p.a.s. dates back to the early 1990s. the 21st century re-activation of the planetary funk moniker isnt a nostalgic look backwards so much as an expansion of its original mission.
rushin is an artist who has the cool confidence and patience to let ideas slowly simmer, and knows that this simmering process is essential for his distinct sonic seasonings to truly and positively affect the body and mind.
