Press Info:
US native and Techno newcomer 785 blasts onto the scene with a stellar debut 12”.

Kansas native 785 debuts with his first 12” ever on Jerome Sydenham’s Apotek records. It is clear this evasive sound engineer has a special gift to craft Techno from sources others may have never dared to tap.

The A-side ‘Mada Theory’ is a display of pure Techno diversity with slight nods to dub, ambient and the upper class of minimal. A record whose beauty may lay in it simplicity until one witnesses the complex chaos it causes on dance-floors.

The flip, ‘East Box’, gets a tad more ‘mechanical’ utilizing drilling kicks and a host of atmospheric sounds sliding in unison with machine rhythms, coagulating into some hardened molten Tech-Funk.

Both tracks have that special something that makes them standout. What has he employed that others haven’t? A phenomenon we’ll have to wait to decode until he unleashes his next pack of roving beats.

Track 03 is digital-only.

Info:
Luke Slater’s Planetary Assault Systems follows the release of the album ‘The Messenger’ (OSTGUTCD20/LP10) with a 12″ of remixes by Silent Servant and The Black Dog.

With his recent releases on Sandwell District and Semantica Records, LA producer John Mendez aka Silent Servant has shown that his reduced atmospheric techno has firmly taken its place on the world’s main peak time dance floors. Taking one of the most banging tracks from ‘The Messenger’ album, he transforms ‘Bell Blocker’ to a slow burning hypnotic ride by removing both the super heavy bass drum and the bells of the original and instead layering heavy atmospherics over a rolling beat and finally introducing a new synth line that injects some intense emotion.

The Black Dog and Luke Slater have been travelling alongside in the electronic music scene since both released some of their earliest productions on the legendary General Production Recordings in 1991 and 1993 respectively. Since Black Dog’s founding member Ken Downie has been joined by Martin and Richard Dust they have pursued a new sound in ambient and recently down to the floor techno that has earned them new support and respect from many of their younger contemporaries. Planetary Assault Systems’ original ‘Beauty In The Fear’ is a tense mix of dark strings and jittering snares, for the remix The Black Dog combine their brooding melodics and dance floor oriented production skills to create the perfect counterpart to the flipside of this 12", somewhere between plain scary and profoundly deep.
The release is backed by a second ambient version of the Black Dog mix that is only available on the digital format.
