  1. ASC - "Slow Burn"
  2. ASC - "Transit"
  3. LB Dub Corp - "Lurcher's Dub"
  4. LB Dub Corp - "Native Dub"
Review: Now this is a bit special. Luke Slater's Mote Evolver launches the Parallel series, the concept being that two contrasting but complementing artists drop a brace of tracks each on the one 12". US based Englishman ASC (real name James Clements), known primarily for his forward thinking D&B excursions, turns in two whopping techno cuts on the A-Side. The relentless guttural throb of "Slow Burn" is offset by some slapping synths and barely there vocal snippets, kind of what we'd expect a studio jam between Levon Vincent and Boddika to sound like. This is complemented by the more liquid tones of "Transit", a reverb-laden throbber with menacing sonar bleeps piercing the swampy atmospherics. On the flip, Slater adopts his seldom seen L.B.Dub Corp guise for "Lurcher's Dub" and "Native Dub", with the cavernous sub-bass and twinkling keys of the former demanding play on an implausibly large soundsytem.

  1. Thwack (Norman Nodge remix)
  2. Thwack (PAS remix)
  3. Thwack (Mike Parker remix)
Review: Some of techno music's real heavyweights have been commissioned to rework Marcel Fengler's "Thwack". Fellow Berghain resident Norman Nodge is first up, delivering a tough, filtered techno groove, which shows a more abrasive side to the Berlin DJ's palette. Mike Parker's version is just as intense, but with the US producer's distinctive signature, as dense layers of subsonic bleeps encase a claustrophobic rhythm. Not to be outdone, label owner Luke Slater drops a superb version of his own under his Planetary Assault Systems guise, with a menacing, pumping bassline underpinning the incessant ringing of a car alarm.

  1. Quantum Mechanics
  2. Complex Numbers
  3. Quantum Mechanics (PAS dub edit)
  4. Linear Function
Review: Luke Slater's Mote Evolver imprint comes up trumps yet again, this time calling on the services of Finnish producer Samuli Kemppi. "Quantum Mechanics" is characterised by a droning bassline and incessant hi-hats, which hold the groove together until a subterranean kick drum takes centre stage some point after the mid section. This shares the A-Side with "Complex Numbers", a moody slice of dub techno replete with scattergun drum programming which makes for a serious basement dancefloor wigout. Flip over for a mammoth dub edit of the title track - this is surely the one Slater rips out of the record bag on special occasions - while "Linear Function" closes off the EP with a shuffling sojourn through intergalactic atmospherics.

  1. Dark Matter
  2. Wormhole
Review: Luke Slater's impressive Mote - Evolver label continues it rich vein of form with veteran Finnish producer Samuli Kemppi's "Dark Matter EP." An intensely hypnotic EP, he uses a driving beat and echoed FX to create a futuristic landscape for this pulsating, minimal-edged techno beast. The talented producer continues to push things in the right direction with this one.

Review: The legendary British producer Luke Slater fires up his L.B. Dub Corp alias once again. This is some of the first original material by him under this alias for the first time since 2013's magnificent Unknown Origin EP on Ostgut Ton. Deep and experimental grooves on the house tip is just one of the ways to describe this interesting side project, with Slater explaining that he wrote the tracks over the last year - between touring as Planetary Assault Systems, the LSD project (with Steve Bicknell and Function) and playing a few L.B. Dub Corp house sets - which inadvertently evolved into the material on this album. From moments of austere bounce like on the dynamic opener "Reel One", to seething factory floor dubs such as "Edge 7" (feat Aurelie Yung) and moments of slow burning hypnotism like on "Forever In A Day"- nobody quite does it like Slater.

Review: Fresh off the new album we welcome the arrival of a limited L.B Dub Corp single. Opening proceedings, 'See The Light' unveils a soulful and vocal driven side to the L.B.Dub Corp sound, whilst 'We Are going Home' switches up the aesthetic and movesinto duskier, percussion driven territories. Last up, Slater punctuates the EP with the intricate, snaking sonics of 'Calling The Spirit', harnessing slick, skipping hats and a hypnotic, ever-evolving lead line.

  1. Third Eye Vision
  2. Ana Kata
Review: Luke Slater's Mote-Evolver welcome back Swedish artist Cari Lekebusch for his second release on the label. Third Eye Vision further secures Lekebusch's already high reputation for being a diverse force within the techno realm thanks to his continuously high quality production and individual sound style. The title track opener "Third Eye Vision" builds around a hypnotic hum, reverbing and lulling alongside the groove in a melodic manner. On the flip, "Ana Kata" is a contrasting battle between atmospheric tones; bleak and emotively sparse moments flit with warm and inviting soundscapes, an adventure through sound and its capabilities!

  1. Dormancy Survivors
  2. Victors History
Review: The latest Mote Evolver release sees a collaboration so obviously perfect its amazing its taken this long, as Stroboscopic Artefacts boss Lucy and Sandwell District alumnus Silent Servant team up for two tracks of precision techno which supposedly sees the pair using digital and analogue elements together to combine Lucy's ability to tell a story with Silent Servant's mastery of noise and distortion. "Dormancy Survivors" sees a steadily rolling rhythm slowly layered up with bright dub chords and echoing chimes, while white hot noise swells in the background. "Victors History" takes a much moodier approach from the off, as a dubby bass deflects bouncing stabs while clockwork percussion drifts in and out of range, before progressing into full blown cinematic techno towards the finish.

  1. Spitting Electricity
  2. Polar Vortex
  3. Ice Fissure
Review: If there's someone you can count on for excellence in minimalism when it comes to techno, it's Mike Parker. This time it's Mote-Evolver he's doing the business for, turning out three po-faced slices of tough and stealthy tackle for the dance. "Spitting Electricity" uses neat and tidy polyrhythms to create a slip-sliding effect as the titular electricity undulates through a filter. "Polar Vortex" is more obtuse with its bubbling synth tone that comes straight out of the textbook of freaky sound effects in techno tracks. "Ice Fissure" too turns to canny sound design to make its point, not to mention audibly crafting the crack of the title over a slow marching kick.

Review: After the recent announcement of a forthcoming L.B Dub Corp album, Luke Slater's other alias, Planetary Assault Systems, provides its first transmission of 2013. Fans of "Bell Blocker" from PAS' stellar The Messenger album from 2011 will instantly warm to the cold chimes of "No Exit", while pink noise cushions the brooding, pitch-dark groove of "Undertow". Slater then introduces agitated mind games on the EPs inner B-side with "Nanendi", which sounds like a school of crickets trapped in a haunted cathedral of distant Gregorian chant.

  1. Future Modular
  2. Riot In Silo 12
  3. Serc
Review: While Luke Slater is busy as always, his Planetary Assault Systems output has slowed since the release of the all conquering Messenger LP for Ostgut Ton in 2011. For this Future Modular 12", Slater is less visceral and more arpeggiated than previous releases, harking back to a '90s-early-2000s PAS-sound, specifically the A-side's title-track. On the B-sides there's the deep, trippy and linear "Serc", but before that there's a sinister "Riot In Silo 12" that's showered in 909-hi-hats to get through first.

  1. Voltan
  2. Pygar
  3. Turn
  4. Flat Tire
Review: If you were to find yourself late one Sunday afternoon jostling for position in a reconditioned power station, surrounded by ubermensch males, it's likely you're in Deep Heet. Techno music doesn't get much more self explanatory than this. "Voltan" is the most club-indulgent of the four track EP. A wall of undulating PAS noise shifts in and around a thrumming bassline. and the only audible deviation of instrumentation comes via pattering snares. Pent tensions encircle "Pygar" which gradually cools, as Slater reduces the track back to its original framework. "Turn" sheds the low end and fizzle of the aforementioned tracks, focusing on hypnotic and bleeping loops and disturbing Hitchcock-like insignia, while Slater reintroduces his fearsome hiss on "Flat Tire" with gargantuan war horns.

  1. The Eyes Themselves
  2. Strange Attractor
  3. Arc
Review: Some new Planetary Assault Systems material from Mr Luke Slater is always a welcome sight and The Eyes Themselves finds the techno pioneer on suitably mind bending form. Issued naturally by his own Mote Evolver, this three track 12" bristles with the sort of intense, physical energy that makes the music feel alive and somewhat alien with the title track a perfect embodiment. Across the six minutes, "The Eyes Themselves" develops from a dark throb into full blown techno psychedelia that possesses the ability to draw the more open minds into another dimension. Similar things could be said about "Strange Attractor" so we will draw your attention to the B side cut "Arc" where intensity is the predominant characteristic across the eight thrilling minutes.

  3. GT (PAS remix)
Review: Luke Slater dons his Planetary Assault Systems costume and woos some rather big producers into remixing his 2006 jerker "GT" for this EP for his own Mote Evolver imprint. UK techno throb stalwart James Ruskin retains the metallic tones of the original but reworks the overall sound into a nine minute excursion into unforgiving machine funk. Not to be outdone, Sandwell District charger Function teams up with US legend Jerome Sydenham deliver a sensory assault of a remix, characterised by nagging drone fx and drums that reverberate around your inner ear. To round things off nicely Luke Slater drops his own sludgy techno thumper as well as two menacing DJ tools for the more imaginative selectors.

  3. Function 4 (Shifted remix)
  4. Function 4 (Lucy remix 2)
Review: Mote Evolver return with another salvo of reworks from three of techno's biggest names, following last year's remixes of Planetary Assault Systems' massive "Function 4" from Marcel Dettmann and Chris Liebling. Dettmann returns for more with a "Base dub" remix which is a more stripped back affair than his more full bodied first attempt, concentrating instead on subtle rhythmic nuances. Stroboscopic Artefacts' Lucy provides two remixes - one utilising a minimal breakbeat over shrill pads, and one that piles on the atmosphere with its swathes of reverb. Our pick however is Shifted's slickly executed revision, with a rolling rhythm that's packed densely around abstract tones.

  2. Function 4 (Chris Liebing 2011 rework)
  3. Function 4 (original)
Review: Not content with recently delivering a behemoth of a new Planetary Assault System album for Ostgut in the shape of The Messenger, Luke Slater deems the moment is right to revisit a former glory under the pseudonym, backed of course with some heavyweight remixes. Originally out on Peacefrog over a decade ago, Function 4 established Slater's talent for crafting unrelenting, churning metallic techno and still retains potency some ten years on. This EP on his own Mote Evolver imprint is the first in a series of remix twelves with Ostgut's Marcel Dettmann leading the way with a typically all encompassing effort, corroding the groove with thick gloopy textures and waiting an absolute age before a rasping kick rises through. In contrast Chris Liebling's remix veers closer to the brittle, slightly nervous refrain of the source material.

Review: Part one of this Funk 22 Light Years Series Luke Slater is turning out at the moment on his Mote-Evolver label took in remixes from Token's Phase and Ben Sims with a classic '97 PAS remix of Dungeon making the cut too. For part two, Slater looks towards Ovum boss Josh Wink who turns in a progressive builder that's slightly more melodic and trippier than the original "Kat". It's tech house shake is undeniable! Meanwhile, "Kat" itself is tribal, uptempo and proper '90s looped techno. It's an EP of two halves - so which one are you: tech or techno?

Review: British techno stalwart Luke Slater is now two decades into his ongoing Planetary Assault Systems adventures. To celebrate, he's handed over tracks recorded over the last 20 years to a hand picked group of remixers. It's a faultlessly floor-focused affair, with Lucy, Steve Bicknell, Function and Slam - whose acid-fired re-make of "Temporary Suspension" is an album highlight - all delivering typically no-nonsense interpretations of Slater's tracks. The producer himself delivers a handful of 'live edits' - versions created for his live shows - while Detroit legends Octave One smother "Booster" in classic Motor City melodies and the most positive of synthesizer refrains.

You can bet there's yet more austere and ergonomic tracks for serious DJ use on offer here. Starting off with the driving and cyclical grunt of "Desert Races", then the tunnelling and trance inducing bell melody of "Life Rhythm" representing the A side. On the flip, the full throttle intergalactic charge of Random Kingdom and the dystopian minimalism of "Lazer Organical" which would make even Mike Parker stand up and notice! Slater is still without doubt one of the most singular talents in techno, respect!

  3. Dungeon (PAS 1997 original) (6:24)
Review: More than any other UK techno producer, Luke Slater has remained at the cutting edge. This is partly due to his ability to make forward-thinking music, but as this new series demonstrates, he also possesses an uncanny knack for pairing off with other inspired artists. "Gated" is vintage PAS material from the 90s, its distorted rhythm lent a housey bias here thanks to Ben Sims' superb remix. It's hard to believe that "Dungeon", available here in its original format, dates back to 1997, as its bleepy, tunneling groove and its 'swarm of bee' hums make for exactly the kind of hypnotic sounds that many modern producers try - and fail - to emulate. Completing this excellent release is a dry, tribal version of "Dunegon" by O [Phase] from Token.

Review: After a period of reissues, retrospectives and reflection, Luke Slater is once again ready to take on all comers with his full-throttle techno project Planetary Assault Systems. As the title suggests, "Straight Shooting" is not for the faint hearted, though fans of the producer's work under the long-held alias will absolutely love it. As with previous reelases, Slater pairs the far-sighted, sci-fi inspired futurism of Detroit with the bombastic, all-action loop techno flex of fellow British veterans Surgeon and Regis. Highlights include the alien techno slam of "Beam Riders", the relentless percussive pressure of "Humans Use Concrete", the dystopian darkness of "Engage Now" and the sweaty, glassy-eyed warehouse flex of EP standout "Give It Up".

  3. Intern
  4. Somewhere
Review: Following Psyk's excellent label debut for Mote Evolver in the shape of Distane, the producer returns for another EP of robust, yet minimalistic techno. The title track is as tripped back as they come, utilising simply a stomping kick drum and metallic bell tones to create a devastating techno tool; "Surface" is similarly sparse, but trades earth shaking qualities for an idiosyncratic combination of irregular claps which are thrown into the mix alongside slender synth stabs. "Intern" meanwhile takes things on a funkier tip, where distant snare rolls and marimba-like tones combine to create a deceptively simple techno tool; it's a stark contrast to "Somewhere" which is significantly brighter in its approach, accenting Psyk's fierce rhythms and dub chords with a colourful cluster of house-inspired stabs.

If you combine all of your favourite elements from producers like Robert Hood, Shed, Jeff Mills, and of course Luke Slater - think intricate and bubbling micro-synths, phat house chords, linear bleep sequences, and a course a lot of 909 action - you've got a bonafide techno album that is Pysk's Time Foundation.

Review: The legendary Mote Evolver is back with another ferocious slab of UK techno. Label favourite Psyk gives us a blow to the head as soon as the needle touches down on title track, "Distane". Repetitive keys swing back and forth with mighty force; followed by "Isolate", another triumphant techno bomb filled with muffled static and a feverishly hissed percussion. For the B Side, Psyk takes us further down the bouncing rabbit hole on "Rdmn", and completes his rave injection with "Main", an almighty, stripped number worthy only of a gigantic dark room filled with bass bins.

Review: It's about time that Spain's Psyk made a return to the Mote-Evolver imprint; after all, he has been at the core of the label's development since their glory days back in the mid 00's. As expected, the gifted techno producer touches down with an absurdly effective collection of killers, first storming down with the hypnotics of "Disorder", before heading into a relentless wormhole on "Silent Witness". "Apart" opens the B-side with a rattling cascade of metallic percussion, driven forwards by acidic synths, and "Surrender" wastes no time in throwing us back into the midst of the rave, as cavernous and foreboding as humanly possible.

Review: Amsterdam DJ, producer and ON Records main man Jeff Rushin now gets a release on Luke Slater's highly revered Mote Evolver label and keeps on with its consistent streak of high quality peak time techno. "Coda" is a stripped and minimalist affair which lets a bouncy 808 kick drum do most of the work and rich reverb on the hats. It hypnotises you with its simplicity. As does "Facing The Truth" which offers more of the same but introduces a sinister type of melody. On the flip things get more fierce with "Enigma" and its tunnelling dulcimer melody which builds and builds. "A Figment Of His Imagination" gets on with it using a gritty arpeggiated bassline and roaring chimes.

Review: With an ever-widening presence in the modern vanguard of militant techno, Shifted once again sidles up to his regular haunt of Mote Evolver to hammer home some inescapable truths about monochrome dancefloor physics. On all four tracks, there's an unrelenting urgency borne by the steadfast arrangements of rhythmic devices, all locked in so tight the notion of individual elements seems irrelevant. "Razors" grinds and crackles with precision, while "Over" frays into fractals at the edge of its looping drums. "Bloodless" operates a lone acid sentry while "Trouble" hunches down into a mechanical whirr, but all these cuts will do the damage when it counts.

  2. Polaron
  3. Bound
Review: Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver label rounds off an impressive 2010 and starts 2011 by passing into record label maturity with a 21st release. As is fitting for such a landmark release, the forever-progressive Slater has plucked a special release from the ether that will impress and intrigue followers of Mote?s approach to undergroundtechno.

Shrouded in anonymity, Shifted’s release is fuelled by a personal passion for techno, this 3-track EP for Mote-Evolver represents an earnest expression of creativity from an enigmatic artist; freed from the restrictions of expectation and reputation.

Opening up with the kind of sparsely constructed but highly incendiary deepspace-techno that has characterized much of Mote’s recent output, Drained is a thumping bass-driven ride through sinister moods and scratchy sounding effects.

Polaron brings an abrasive feel to the release, contrasting with the deeper moods found elsewhere on the EP, as heavy beats and mechanical percussion provide momentum while resounding chimes and shrill stabs add frenetic drama.

Futuristic and hypnotic, Bound combines the pacey dynamism of snappy rhythms with mesmerizing atmospheric loops which weave together to create a shifting melody; oscillating subtly against a backdrop of relentless percussion.

Review: Shifted's identity has remained somewhat of a mystery in 2012, but crucially, he does not come from the small coterie that has dominated UK techno over the past twenty years. Like the signature image he uses, a grey, shadowy creature creeping through a snowy forest, his infiltration of the sound has been stealthy and understated. In many ways, his lack of connection with techno, his automatic outsider status, has allowed him to effect an entrance into a hitherto new terrain. Like his releases on Mote Evolver and his own Avian imprint, Crossed Paths tingles and fizzes with an atmospheric sensibility that monochrome techno often lacks. All of this is made possible by his distinctive sound design; intricate and subtle, yet at the same time both functional and multi-faceted, where all of these divergent paths cross, you'll find Shifted.

Review: Having become something of a regular fixture in the Mote Evolver camp, Shifted is back once again to head up Side A of the second Parallel Series 12". As you might expect, the techno comes bleak and throbbing from the Shifty one, although avoiding excessive heaviness over immersive progression and dubby FX. On the flip Samuli Kemppi plies his quirkier trade, using offbeat synth mess to counteract the steady rhythm of the bottom end on "Trans Neptunian". "Detached Object" meanwhile fires off streams of interlocking sounds which spiral around the relentless kick for a classy exercise in techno restraint. Highly recommended.

"I'm Going Up" keeps the flow with more live percussion and vox whilst "She Showed Me Heaven" drops the tempo a few notches whilst retaining the electro-funk blueprint. Finally "Something About You" kicks things to a crescendo with guitars and a driving bass playing off Luke's lyrical delivery.

Review: First released back in 1997, breakbeat-driven techno jam "Love" remains one of Luke Slater's most rush-inducing moments. Here the classic has been given a new lease of life via a swathe of fresh reworks. Fittingly, Slater provides cuts under two of his more familiar alternate aliases: an ultra-dreamy, glassy-eyed breakbeat take as The 7th Plain and a thrusting intergalactic techno revision as Planetary Assault Systems. The other revisions are all superb, too. Burial serves up an ultra-deep, super-dusty 4/4 interpretation full of his usual crackling samples, Lucy re-imagines it as a bouncy techno slammer, Marcel Dettmann gives it a clanking, metallic techno feel and Silent Servant offers up some carnival-ready drums and rising symphonic strings.

Review: The title of this release could sum up Steve Rachmad's diverse career. From the deep techno of the early Sterac releases through the widescreen electro of Sterac Electronics and the tougher projects like Scorp, he has brought his expertise and finesse to a range of styles. For this outing on Luke Slater's label, the Dutch artist remains in harder territory. "Stroke 1" sees clipped drums underpin a dark, ebm bass, while "Stroke 2" explores this sound in more depth, as a grinding low end is fused with hissing percussive ticks. "Stroke 3" and "Stroke 4" return to more typical Sterac territory, with swaggering rhythms unfolding to the sound of bubbly bass tones and dubbed out drums.

  1. Black Mamba
  2. J XX
Review: Submerge lands a new two track EP on Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver imprint. The "Black Mamba" EP introduces two of the dark and tweaky tracks that have brought the Chi town native to the attention of today's techno scene.

Mote-Evolver has been on a fine run of form of late. Recent releases from the likes of Cari Lekebusch, Ortin Cam and Samuli Kemppi’s excellent "Dark Matter" EP are still fresh in the memory and have subsequently raised the expectation levels for every release that follows on the label. Those levels increase even more when the producer is one of the most exciting to come out of the USA in recent years. Having built a reputation as an eclectic and innovative producer, and fresh from the success of his "2012" EP on his own Impact Mechanics label, Submerge now pushes his fresh techno sound further with "Black Mamba."

The title track is an adrenalin fuelled, full throttled techno jauggernaught that gets the release underway with a bang. Bristling with energy and intensity, the track builds amid pounding beats, pulsing acid stabs and manic phaser FX from outer space. It is heads down stuff for peak time sets, sure to blow the heads off anyone who hears it. B Side, "J-XX" is not as emphatic but every bit as powerful. Crunching beats and swashing FX create a rawness that compliments the groove to perfection. Constantly building, the track grows and grows with each bar, mutating itself into an angry and fierceful climax.

Another stand out release from Mote-Evolver, "Black Mama" proves that the label can keep the quality of their output consistently high, rather than just staying noticed through an occasional track that grabs attention. The EP also shows that its creator, Submerge, is more than capable of keeping his quality at the same level too.

  1. Wind Runner (6:59)
  2. Sling Jockey (6:36)
  3. Charged Totem (5:06)
  4. Magma (5:58)
Review: Inaugurated by Luke Slater (as L.B.Dub Corp) and ASC in 2011, 'Parallel Series' has continued to host split releases from the likes of Shifted, Samuli Kemppi, Bas Mooy, Chris Finke, Developer, Truncate, Sev Dah, Jeff Rushin, and more. For its next instalment, Brighton based producer Rene Wise returns to Mote-Evolver having debuted on the label last year. 'Wind Runner' features a relentless bassline and substantial kick, married to swooping industrial textures generating abstract rhythms, before an arpeggiated bass melody joins ghostly vocals in 'Sling Jockey'. Both tracks are choice cuts picked by Luke Slater who's been hammering Wise's demos in his sets throughout the last year. Making his Mote-Evolver debut, Billy Turner distributes sharp oscillating frequencies with syncopated drum hits in 'Charging Totem', then 'Magma' erupts dangerous modulating stabs whilst ethereal reverb evolves into a cacophony of intense energy.
