3x12" Vinyl lp, 180 g+mp3 BE28.11.18
(180 gr, clear vinyl, incl dl card) having already unleashed a considerable amount of collaborative magic with the planetary funk: 22 light years series of remix eps, luke slater has now upped the ante with six full sides worth of material,all of them injecting the spirit of classic p.a.s. into new sonic organisms. behind the controls: marcel fengler, psyk, lucy, slam, octave one, function and ksp.
reissue des legendären debütalbums von luke slaters wohl bekanntestem alias, planetary assault systems. nach mehreren ep s in der -planetary funk--serie zwischen 1993-1996 erschien 1997 schließlich der longplayer -the electric funk machine-, der unterschiedliche techno-styles aus detroit und europa - von peaktime-banger über düster-monotone grooves bis überschwenglich-soulful-verträumte detroit-trips - kombinierte und auf anhieb zu einem zeitlosen meilenstein des techno avancierte.
(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.
mote evolver kicks off 2014 with future modular ep from luke slaters planetary assault systems alias, presenting sharp-as-ever fresh sound of p.a.s. that has enticed the audience as long as the mighty systems have existed.
luke slaters most well known pseudonym is back. no exit unmistakably bears all the hallmarks of planetary assault system, from mind-tripping and floor-stirring hypnotic energy to the theme of pushing the outer limits of unknown territories
originally released through peacefrog in 2000, the tracky, tripping metallic thump of function 4 is a great early example of slaters pioneering droning, mesmerising musings as p.a.s. this is the 1st episode.
comprising three state-of-the-art expeditions into deep space techno, deep heet vol. 2 takes techno back to its primitive roots, adding details inspired by yet-tobe-explored points in the galaxy, only visible from slaters spacestation Ø uk studio.
supported by adam beye, slam, heiko laux, luciano, damon wild and many more!
appleblim & al tourettes und deuce (marcel dettmann / shed) läuten mit ihren remixen eine weiterführende runde in der erforschung der äußeren ränder elektronischer musik ein. während al tourettes & appleblim eine abwegige huldigung düsterer, gebrochener beats zelebrieren, bescheren uns deuce ein reduziert pumpendes tool dessen mächtiges brummen sich zu einem hypnotischen sog entfaltet
>time to bring the funk and intensity back in a new way. time to open the sound again<, sagt luke slater zu seinem planetary assault systems album. er generiert über die gesamte spielzeit eine industrielle härte und energie, die man schon länger nicht mehr dermaßen auf den punkt gebracht bei einem technoalbum gehört haben dürfte
five years after his last album release luke slater returns to ostgut ton with a new planetary assault systems longplayer, titled arc angel. after 22 light-years luke slater’s planetary assault systems keeps exploring space and time with different musical means. staying true to the project’s initial mission statement, slater comments on the new yet familiar musical direction: “for me music has to go forward. i’d feel i was cheating by sticking to tried and tested formulas. there’s a valid use for these, but this album has its own agenda.” with arc angel, planetary assault systems departs to new musical frontiers by focussing on melody, but staying rooted in the purist values of techno that slater shaped over his decades- and generations-spanning career.
