Lifting off with the bleepy, outerspacey thrust?of 'Beam Rider', Slater's new outing stings like?a straight-out nasty shot of adrenaline right in?the ticker. Going for the jugular with its ever?impactful mix of pummeling kicks, bloodthirsty?bass combers and frenzied electronics?blinking like signals freshly emerged from a?long drift across cold, hostile wormholes, PAS?further proves he navigates in a parallel?dimension of his own. Although familiar in?essence, the chassis of the tracks remains?distinctively unique with cuts like 'Born?Anchors' and 'Engage Now' moving away from?the calibrated number category, whilst finely??blurring the line between explosiveness and?self-discipline, which makes them perfect for?near-peaktime moments of transition in a set.?
Proper muscular bangers are nevertheless the?kernel of it all here, and sure to steer the crowd?into ecstasy on automatic pilot. If 'Humans Use?Concrete' blazes with the wild stomp of?Slater's most incisive classics and 'Bear?Bones' guides its listener into a trippy?excursion across hyperspace loops and alien?inner territories, it's 'Give It Up' that harnesses?the storm with its playful mix of sliced-and-diced vox fragments, rabid toms, skittish hats?and freq-shifting synth whines sure to cut a?path of destruction into the club. If an extra-terrestrial invasion of planet Earth was on the?agenda, no doubt Slater would be appointed?soundtrack composer in chief. Deadly as it?gets, 'Straight Shooting' holes it in one.
