Boomkat Product Review:
Bruising techno manoeuvres from Luke Slater in his Planetary Assault Systems guise, presenting his second full-length on Ostgut Ton. At this late stage in the game there's no doubt that Slater has become a master of his craft, and aside from a couple of nice ambient mood pieces (recalling his occasional 7th Plain project), The Messenger goes straight for the club jugular, and with style to spare. It's really rare to find a techno this sure of its own purpose, and while much of it explores the bleepy, acid-flecked terrain that folks like Hawtin and Slater himself stalked out in the 90s, the real prize is the smattering of super-heavy warehouse sh*t that arrives in the album's second half, a kind of minimalism so muscular that minimalism really feels like the wrong word: witness the strobing industrial assault of 'Rip The Cut' and the tracky Shed-esque number 'Black Tea'. Put simply this is just tremendously well produced techno, pure of heart and deadly effective.
