For some fifteen years now the name of Luke Slater has been synonymous with quality electronic music. A techno alchemist, Slater has always sought out the extreme often melding influences and styles into a furious and unique sound that has seen him acclaimed as one of the pioneers of British techno. Yet he has never been happy to remain static, preferring a constant quest of exploration and musical discovery. His many and varied releases have seen him mature from an acid house inspired amateur to respected elder statesman of the global electronic empire.
Born in Reading and raised Horley, Slater's is the classic tale of bedroom tinker made good. Early sound dalliances with his dad's ancient reel to reel and some stints drumming with local rock outfits led to work in local record shops including Brighton's infamous Jelly Jam.
