I've always been really into Luke's really deep music more than his harsher stuff. This is prime example. Lovely moody techno. Just great

Millentum, To Be Surreal can be found on Chronicles III which is far more inexpensive and has way more songs on it:

Stunning record, 'To be Surreal' is one of the finest and most beautiful examples of ambient techno. Some of you may have noticed that new Ostgut Ton offshoot put out a compilation of his material last year, and with another expected in the not too distant future, lets hope it gets an inclusion.

Isn’t it great to listen to those golden techno moments and be completely overwhelmed by the sound? This masterpiece has that effect on me. ‘To Be Surreal’ and ‘Millentum’ are wonderful, spacy techno tracks from the early nineties. I believe this is Luke Slater’s most beautiful record under his 7th plain guise. And that means a lot when you have listened to fantastic albums like ‘My Yellow Wise Rug’ and ‘The 4 Cornered Room’.

It is music made in the years when techno and ambient melted so well together. Luke Slater was one of the champions in creating multi-layered tracks without losing the atmosphere. He made tracks where you could listen to, over and over again and where you could always hear something new. I hope these tracks will last forever and will be rediscovered in the future, rather than his ‘commercial’ recordings which are forgettable.
