Boomkat Product Review:
Seriously essential techno goods from Luke Slater and his Planetary Assault Systems project. Slater has been building a strong relationship with the Ostgut label and Berghain club since it's inception a few years back, contributing the stunning 'Symphony For The Surrealists' to their Shut Up And Dance! compilation as well as tracks for Len Faki's club dedicated Podium imprint. This is easily his most anticpated release in an age and it's already clear that this will rank very highly on end-of-year lists as it's simply one of the heaviest club cuts you'll hear in 2009. 'Temporary Suspension' is purest Berghain tackle made for the dancers, built with ultra subtle layers of 909 percussion gelling into an almighty Milllsian steamroller rhythm that should come with a certficate of guaranteed effectiveness attached. 'Mark Me (Long Edit)' is a much altered beast though, opting for a leaner and tougher rhythm made from kinked Industrial drums in the style of Ancient Methods but pinned down with a sub-driven kick which when experienced in the right environment should simulate the pleasurable effect of being pummelled with a pillow filled with concrete. There's no f*cking about with this one, it's strictly techno business for people who like to dance, all night. If you can't be arsed forking out for a return trip to Berlin this should go some way to satisfying your Berghain cravings. Hugely recommended!!!
