This year’s highly anticipated Live At Cocoon Ibiza is helmed by techno legend Luke Slater under his Planetary Assault Systems guise. As Planetary Assault Systems, UK titan Luke Slater has constantly laid down a blueprint for the future of techno. As a live performer he is a visionary who fuses mind melting minimalism, catchy cyborg funk and cinematic soundscapes that really take you on a trip. He did that once again back in July as part of Cocoon’s 20th anniversary season and now the results are laid down on CD for all to relive the magic.
Over the course of eighty spellbinding minutes, Slater truly captivates with evocative sci-fi imagery and high class melodic minimalism, smoothly shifting from moments of high pressure drum-funk intensity to uplifting and spiritual passages of cosmic sound and back again. Along the way, he digs deep into his back catalogue to serve up plenty of golden oldies as well as more contemporary cuts and the whole thing melts together into a timeless set that explores the outer edges of techno with huge amounts of both style and substance. An essential testament to the forward-looking nature of not only Cocoon Ibiza but also Luke Slater himself.
