"Inheritance" will always be one of my favourite tracks, reminds me of Black Dog "Virtual", similar sounds & elements & for me, every bit as good!

This is an amazing, although very often overlooked Luke Slater gem from the early days. Inheritance is a proper, melody driven, soulful Detroit techno classic where the percussion doesn't kick in until two minutes deep. Other then that, it's all about a mellow, deep bass line and dreamy, spacey harmonic arrangements leading to nirvana. The point at around six minutes when those slabs of synth stabs descend from who knows where is divine...
Overside, is a more uptempo, bleeping and acidic number with a humming melody throughout in the background. Imagine it as a rougher version of the A1 track, but with more craziness going on and the melody being pushed to the background instead of residing in the foreground for the whole time.
Spadang, is another Detroit-ish track, very busy, with many spaced out effects and quite a lot of melodic breaks and outbursts. The percussion is very prominent, with loud cymbals throughout. I love it!
RR-WE has these very old school, ravish samples going something like "all day - all day all day!", followed by some female chants. After a while, this lighter melody sneaks in, and with the slightly broken beat percussion, this one must have made quite a party cut back then. It's the most convnentional and easy listening tune on this EP.
Overall, this is a great one. If you've enjoyed Luke's early work on Djax-Up recorded under the Clementine alias, you ought to enjoy this one as well. Tongue in cheek techno with a lot in store for those willing to listen. From melody driven passages, to wicked old school strokes of acid, dance floor friendly beats and the great feel electronic music leaves you with when it seems like it can overcome any obstacle - I cannot do anything but urge you to get this one on the double.
