Review: Planetary Assault Systems – Remixes

Label: Ostgut Ton
Catalog#: o-ton31

A: X Speaks To X – Appleblim & Al Tourettes Remix

B: Hold It – Deuce Remix


With Planetary Assault Systems (PAS) highly experimental album ‘Temporary Suspension’ released on Ostgut, there were no doubt about a remix 12″ following it later on.

As the Ostgut crew reaches out to new artists to come and play in their club, new remixers joins in and create a new take on already established Berghain performers. Al Tourettes and Appleblim takes the heavy ‘X Speaks To X’ from the album, and transform it into something that is very hard to narrow down into a genre – it’s highly influenced and very rough, but at the same time remotely close to dubstep and techno. This remix is very impressive in almost every regard; being very unexpected as a remix on PAS, Appleblim and Al Tourettes takes ‘X Speak To X’ into a new dimension.

Deuce on the other hand bring their raw and extremely reduced sound into PAS original of ‘Hold It’ – a standout track on the album. With only one release as a duo, Deuce manage to fuse early days techno with the raw aspects of the present which is clearly the case with this remix. Featuring just a few elements from the original, they put in their own groove with a steady beat and manage to create a very sublime but also displaying a powerful, distinct and fresh sound.

‘Remixes’ is out in late November.

    PAS’s Temporary Suspension was my favorite album from 2009. And Deuce is, well, just awesome with Marcel and Rene in top form. I’m very excited about this release. Thanks for keeping me in the loop!
