Of all the monikers belonging to techno veteran Luke Slater, Planetary Assault Systems boasts the longest shelf life, and arguably the most success. The music he produces as PAS fits the name well—it's otherworldly and atonal, as if the scattered pitches were attacking all preconceived musical sensibilities. In "Human Like Us," a track from The Messenger (released last week via Ostgut Ton), Slater stacks noises that would be at home as Twilight Zone background music on top of heaps of percussion for a dark, anxiety-inducing space-techno journey.
