Luke Slater has featured here a couple of times (see here). He has a long and varied history having produced his first release in the early 90s. But today’s release dates from the start of the millennium.

There’s a more substantial biog in the earlier post but, in the meantime, a quick biog: Luke Slater is one of the UK’s longest standing techno producers and DJs, active since the late 1980s. He was involved with the founding of the Jelly Jam record shop and label, and went on to release on a number of seminal labels.

Back to today’s release. This is from one of the two 12″s for “All Exhale” in 2000 (the track was originally issued in 1999) with a remix by Justin Robertson under his rarely-used Gentlemen Thief pseudonym (used in collaboration with Roger Lyons, with whom he also worked in Lionrock – previously here). This takes the quite angular electro original and gives it a more conventional House sheen. Not a classic but a good mix.
