Ostgut Ton has announced the launch of its new sub-label A-TON—a branch that will specialise in “ambient, archive and alternative music.”

First up on the emergent platform is Luke Slater, who resurrects his The 7th Plain guise: active from ’93-’96 on British label General Production Recordings, it was a moniker under which he put out his take on ambient music. The forthcoming Chronicles I brings together seven original tracks (four of which were previously unreleased), plus one remix of Japanese techno head Ken Ishii, recorded at Slater’s Space Station Ø and now remastered by Ostgut Ton. According to the label, it “marks the start of a series from Luke Slater’s The 7th Plain moniker, with remastered, previously released and unheard archive material.”

Ostgut Ton has also revealed that Slater will drop a new album as Planetary Assault Systems through the parent label, due out September 30. It comes at a busy time for the British producer, following on from the recent release of the first in a Planetary Funk 22 Light Years remix series on his own Mote-Evolver (a celebration of 22 years of Planetary Assault Systems). On July 16, Berghain will host the release party for the EP.

Chronicles I is set for release on August 5. Stream snippets below.
