Overview

Though his production work references everything from retro-electro to funky breaks, Luke Slater's still a purist on the decks, and his double-disc mix treatment for React keeps it deliciously simple (similar to Dave Angel's 39 Flavours of Tech-Funk from a couple years previously). Slater introduces the set with the raggedy sax solos and furious bongos of a self-titled single from Birdland, then quickly moves into more bangin' territory, courtesy of tracks from Ben Sims, Jeff Mills, DJ Shufflemaster, James Ruskin, and no less than three from his own Planetary Assault Systems alias. Slater stretches out on the second disc, beginning with a minimal DHS jacker from 1989 (!), stringing together left-field tracks from Two Lone Swordsmen and DBX. Minimal techno favorites like Mills, Pacou, and Mr. G make appearances midway through the set, then Slater turns to tech-house with breakbeat tracks from B.L.I.M. ("Eskimo"), Tipper ("Tug of War"), Si Begg's S.I. Futures project ("I Like That (Brand New)"), and, to top it off, an FC Kahuna mix of Felix da Housecat's 2001 burner, "Silver Screen - Shower Scene." He's no Hunter S. Thompson on the decks (thank goodness), but Luke Slater proves his touch is good as gold.
