Luke Slater and DJ Nobu at Dommune
MNML SSGS are back at Dommune this Tuesday for another session and our special guest is techno legend Luke Slater! This is an event I am super excited for, especially as Slater is someone who was a very formative influence on my tastes. One of the first techno tracks that I was really hooked on was Slater's mighty remix of Joey Beltram's "Forklift". This, along with "Class Action", were two tracks that got played out very regularly in Melbourne. Luke Slater was one of the biggest influences on the Melbourne scene in the late '90s. For most of us growing up at that time Luke Slater was one of the key guys. And he still is... The first time I saw him DJ was '98 or '99, and it is amazing that even after all these years, he is still at the top of his game. So it is a real pleasure and honour to be doing a Dommune night with him.
After doing a Planetary Assault Systems livepa at Ageha last Saturday night, at Dommune on Tuesday he will be doing a DJ set under his L.B. Dub Corp guise. This is an alias that Slater has been slowly cultivating over the last couple of years with a number of releases, mainly on his own Mote Evolver label. Most people would probably know L.B. Dub Corp because of the killer 12" on Ostgut, "Take it Down (In Dub)", one of the better records from the last few years. I am very interested to hear how these sound translate into a DJ set. Joining Slater will be DJ Nobu, who I think is probably Japan's best techno DJ right now. He has a deep record bag and is a versatile DJ. Nobu will be a great accompaniment for Slater. This will be a very proper 3 hours of music...
