"2009 has seen a slew of new Detroit producers in what is turning out to be a stunning year of activity for the city's dance music. As the area experiences another test of its collective mettle, these musicians have emerged with some fresh insights. It's Detroit's New Wave; and it's happening at a time when everyone wants to know 'what's really going on' in the 313. As always, Planet E is on this wave with Monty Luke. Following up releases on Claude Von Stroke's Mothership Music label, Luke transplanted from California to Detroit; shunning grace for grit and delivers his first offering for Planet E, Art, Love & War. The label's first release since the 69 box set, Art, Love & War matches deep, stark piano stabs with sharp expansive drum hits; it's upfront, it's beat-driven, it's for the dancefloor. The fantastic Carl Craig remix on the flip throws jagged edges of the original around in unexpected ways; it's the first C2 remix on Planet E since his epic remake of Martin Buttrich's 'Stoned Autopilot.'"
