After a stream of further 12"s Morganistic was next, a beautifully chilled track, "In The Shadow", released on the obscure UK indie label Irdial. It was the label's most successful release and marked Luke's arrival as a leading light on the then blossoming UK scene alongside Black Dog, A.R.T, AFX Twin and B12. However, it was not until his link-up with Peacefrog in 1993 when Luke began his X-Tront series and his Planetary Assault Systems outputs through which he became widely known and praised for, resulting in Luke being heralded as the UK torchbearer for the Detroit techno sound. Further compounding the fact that Luke had really gained promotion to the Techno premier league. His regular appearances at legendary clubs such as Fabric in London, Nitsa in Barcelona and Berghain in Berlin retain his superstar status today as a live performer and DJ, delivering five hour sets to sell out crowds. In 2006, Slater set up Mote-Evolver back in 2006, a label run by himself releasing limited 12" copies for the collector and digital downloads through the Mote-Evolver website. After a hectic 20 years, Slater slowed down in 2007/2008 in order to rest and focus on next phase in his career.
Slater's eagerly anticipated new Planetary Assault Systems album is due for release in 2009. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
