Ovum are proud to present a very special remix release as Josh Wink’s 2015 future-shocker ‘Denial’ enjoys not one but two versions from Luke Slater.
Splitting his complex multi personality across two sides, the UK techno lifer explores his innermost dual psyche to create two wholly different tracks. Both of which reflect the strengths of the original while taking it into vastly different directions.
First up: Planetary Assault System. One of Luke’s oldest and boldest alter-egos, here he provides a nuclear powered bulldozer of a version. Fission hisses and mechanical rasps wrap around the undulating groove that charge relentlessly with a dark funk coded into the bass. Watch out for the additional percussion and brash snares midway for added atom-splitting momentum.
LB Dub Corporation follows. One of Luke’s shyer personas, this is the first LB Dub Corp production since his Ostgut Ton album ‘Unknown Origin’ in 2013. A deeper, rolling analogue groove is at play here, suddenly dropping to reveal the loopy, automaton vocal loop from Josh’s original to awesome hypnotic effect.
Two distinctive, forward-thinking, visceral floor-focused remixes from one of techno’s most respected, long-standing and prolific minds: Remix packages don’t get any bigger than this.
