Various Artists Fabric 32: Luke Slater
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: Fabric
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
U.K. techno icon Luke Slater's DJ mix is best played softly in the car, and not while you're driving. Its eerie smoothness might induces drowsiness, no matter how loud the house and minimal techno beats smack your face. Slater makes the freeway lights dance in the fog with chosen cuts from Jurgen Driessden, Basic Channel, and Putsch '79, who proffers lysergic disco on "Doin' It." The jittery Super Mario electro of Audion's "Mouth to Mouth" and Slater's wobbly riffs on "Organ Bender" also yank ears.
