monday moods: planetary assault systems - railer (further exploration)

the messenger, the last LP from planetary assault systems - aka luke slater - remains one of my favorite techno albums of recent years (it was near the top of my list of 2011's best albums). but while it's chock-full of dark and sharp sounds, there's also the gorgeously off-kilter ambient opener, "railer (further exploration)". have a listen below...

... and then happy news for US fans of luke slater, or at least some of us, as he's got a couple US shows lined up in september. (check his RA page.) right now, first up is NYC for the bunker at output on friday the 13th - also on that lineup is abdulla rashim, making his *north american debut*! awesome stuff. (and another opportunity for me to point you to his super-dope anatomy mix.) anyway, the next night, saturday the 14th, luke slater will come to chicago for the first time in years, playing an oktave party at smart bar. should be good!


  1. This track was released(unreleased) on 7th Plain, The ‎– Playing With Fools .. would love that it would see the light of day sometime on vinyl..

  2. cool, i had no idea.... would really like to hear that album!
