Not content with recently delivering a behemoth of a new Planetary Assault System album for Ostgut in the shape of The Messenger, Luke Slater deems the moment is right to revisit a former glory under the pseudonym, backed of course with some heavyweight remixes. Originally out on Peacefrog over a decade ago, Function 4 established Slater's talent for crafting unrelenting, churning metallic techno and still retains potency some ten years on. This EP on his own Mote Evolver imprint is the first in a series of remix twelves with Ostgut's Marcel Dettmann leading the way with a typically all encompassing effort, corroding the groove with thick gloopy textures and waiting an absolute age before a rasping kick rises through. In contrast Chris Liebling's remix veers closer to the brittle, slightly nervous refrain of the source material.
