As Dave said, you do not need drawer slides, but if you are planning on using this item alot you will wish you had used drawer slides. Heres the parent in me talking now, other than the obvious benefits of operation, if you have any children it prevents them from pulling heavy drawers out and onto themselves.

On a side note, might I suggest making the tall cabinet the depth of the countertop. This serves a few purposes, it keeps you from getting caught on the corner of the top and makes the transition from one cabinet to the next cleaner by avoiding a gap caused by two boxes getting joined together. It also gives a little more visual interest by introducing a break on the front plane.
