While I am not usually a close follower of Terence Fixmer, especially after his departure - not that I mind though - from the "Body Pressure" type of sound that put him under the spot light in the first place, this whole release is worth every one of your pennies just for the immense remix by Planetary Assault Systems taking up the entire B side. Christ almighty. This is a gritty, evil underground scorcher that just tears things up at an incendiary rate. With its slightly off beat feel, the mechanical percussive march and the perfectly pitched side edits, it just remorselessly rolls on and on for minutes before finally erupting into a bass heavy, hard techno frenzy of a climax that'll make the last living soul dispatch their bones off to the dance floor. In fact, my only complaint about this track might be the time it takes to really take off. Meaning that, for listening purposes, or on its own, it might take its toll on the listener's nerves. Once it sets off, there's no stopping it. The sound is overwhelming, played on a proper, large speaker set-up, this must be a tool for the ages. Just make sure you have something hard 'n' heavy to drop afterwards. Those who like it straight forward and brutally effective, look no further. Luke Slater at his club friendly best.

The A side commences with Drastik, which mr. Slater remixed to brilliant effect, and it's a complete opposite. Clean edged, ticking minimal techno with high end, hypnotic bells taking turns with two note synth stabs. Finely crafted, meticulously produced, yet lacking the immense functionality the B side cut packs. Things Are Over is plain boring in my ears. A slowly bouncing, mid tempo houseish beat is coupled by a generic, damped vocal going things are over for far longer than anyone would care to listen to. Interrupted by a few typical breaks, this is a track you have heard a thousand times over by a thousand different artists, and no, you cannot remember a single one. Mediocrity par excellence.

That said, you have one absolutely fabulous tune here, an incredible monster on a floor, and to complement it, you have its original counterpart, which works at the other end of the spectrum. If Luke Slater's remix is a peak hour affair for the dark warehouses, the slickness and clinical execution of Drastik will find its place in warm up sets. Do not sleep on the B side though, I just accidentally picked this one up off the shelf after a long while and got pulverized by the furious might of Luke's sound.
