Luke Slaters Closet Confession

Text by Jonty Skrufff (Skrufff.com)

Techno-electro star Luke Slater chatted to Skrufff this week about his upcoming mix CD for Fabric and revealed that before becoming a DJ he had an unusual obsession with fruit and vegetables.

I cleaned aeroplanes in the past as a job and I once worked as a greengrocer, Luke revealed, I think being a greengrocer was one of my favourite jobs apart from what I do now, he added,

I used to stand outside in front of the fruit and veg display, handing out plastic bags. Ive got a lot of time for market stall holders; Im a closet greengrocer, he laughed.

The UK based producer also revealed hes virtually given up clubbing except for occasional trips to electroclash institution Nag, Nag, Nag.

Ive never been big on going out, but if Im in London I might pop down to Nag because its midweek and I really like it down there. I like to find strange places; Im not a raver though I suppose I was in the beginning.

The fact is that DJing has been so exploited, I swear everyone I meet either is, or wants to be, a DJ, Luke continued.

I think the majority of people do it for the birds and the booze, but thats not really why I do it. When I was very young and I first got my decks in my room, all I did was learning to mix. Maybe the legacy just continues. The funny thing is that now I dont even own a pair of Technics, I have five decks, three of them are broken, and the other two are mis-matched. I just play out; I cant stand it to play at home, he added.

Fabric 32: Luke Slater is out shortly.
