Strategy
Dub Mind Paradigm

Not many artists have released records on both Kranky and 100% Silk but the fact that Strategy has worked with both imprints (and many more) exemplifies the breadth of his work. Here he records an album of purely dub tracks which for anyone who loved his debut 'Drumsolo's Delight' is an exciting prospect indeed.  ...view item »

Strategy
Tuff Life

Portland producer Strategy continues with his strategy of making house music free of any decedent high-fidelity trappings. The four tracks of Tuff Life just get straight to the gritty heart of the business, locking down the drum machine thud and acidic synth-bass and making movements happen. Lo-fi all the way! 12”...view item »

Strategy
Boxy Music

100% are mixing up them cover sleeves again. Strategy is lucky enough to have proper artwork and all that. business.  A sign that things are ticking over nicely for the label? I hope so as they've been surprisingly consistent so far. Of course you'll be familiar with Portland resident...view item »

Strategy
Strategy

There are very few people producing dub/kraut/disco/techno/ambience with the consistency of Portland’s Paul Dickow AKA Strategy. All his releases seem to veer off into new territories whether it be the dubbed out bliss of the &lsquo...view item »

Strategy
Noise Tape Self

Noise Tape Self represents Strategy’s turn towards favouring tape music over more digital means of creating sound, and the tactility of physical tape loops slipping over capstans is an important part of this release, even as the results are swathed with effects. Ah, the wonderful world of cassettes… LP on F...view item »

Strategy
Information Pollution

Abstract ambience and drone from Paul Dickow’s Strategy project. This alien music is produced from radio static, snippets of battered tapes and distorted field recordings. Information Pollution is an apt title too, as assorted found sounds and ambient recordings overlap and fill the space, like harsh noise...view item »

Strategy
Seeds of Paradise

12” Vinyl LP on Idle Hands. Strategy is the moniker of Portland based producer Paul Dickow. With Seeds of Paradise he explores a sort of near future sci-fi dub, filled with radio transmission crackle, lush dronescapes and spaced out dub textures. Would fit nicely alongside some of your Loscil and ...view item »

Strategy
Pressure Wassure

Old dub-ambient-space-face Strategy is a long running artist for this particular establisment. Once found propping up the Kranky roster, we now find him fiddling with the much-lauded sound of UK hardcore from back in the day. No longer making music merely for home perusal it seems, this sounds like a Strategic dancefloor-munching platter to me.....view item »

Strategy
Return From The Stars

US producer Strategy gets a release on Chris Farrell's Idle Hands imprint, offering up a 12" slice of downtempo goodness There's a Peverelist remix of Strategy's "Return From The Stars" on offer, and so the sounds begin to mesh and fall out into a wonderful collage of house, dub an...view item »

Strategy
Super Awareness Is Fruit

I love Strategy. Their 'Drumsolo's Delight' on Kranky is pretty much one of my favourite records of all time. Taking the dub of dub techno and erasing most of the techno it's the most beautiful laid back lovingly decayed, bass heavy electronica you are ev...view item »

Strategy
World House

Yet another new label this week called Community Library which apparently is the brainchild of the geezer from Stategy. Low and behold the first EP is by Strategy. It begins with a minimal plinky plonky percussion loop and evolves into a rather funky playfull little groove with hand claps and plucked guitar coming in and ou...view item »

Drumsolo's Delight - Screenprinted Cover

I have in my wart ridden hand a copy of a new LPby Strategy on Audio Dregs ins  a lovely screen printed sleeve.  The music contained is also of an excellent standard. Beautiful dubby soundcapes. This is the same lot that had a fantastic dun ting out on Shockout a few weeks ago. A mixture of early...view item »

Strategy
Awareness Is Fruit

Here's a well limited Under the Spire CD by Strategy called 'Awareness In Fruit'. As ever it's packaged in one of those wee brown foldy cardboard arigato packs and they're well lovely looking!! It's a 3" CD which sits on one of those white nipples looking furtive. I don't trust those nipple packs.... Over the years Strategy have made some top ...view item »

Strategy
Sines of Life

Some 3 inch CDr action up next from Strategy with 'Sines Of Life' which is one single improvised track. The synth really reminds me of The KLF's all time ambient classic 'Chill Out'. It gives the track a real anchor for the other sounds to float around. It's a real moody piece that absorbs me from the very start. I particularly like the modular syn...view item »

Strategy
Electric Soup

Strategy: Electric Soup (Low-Point) I'd like to know what else they get up to at the Cascadia Autonomous Region, Oregon, where this was recorded. This EP moves to a slight degree north of his more dubby approaches to geek electronica. Instead, this a showcase of sorts for the array of vintage synths, pianos and theremin alongside his deft...view item »

Strategy
Future Rock

Strategy: "Future Rock" on Kranky, like the label this set encompasses various elements that make up modern music production values, techniques and hardware. It also covers the variety of styles and genres most eclectic music lovers embrace, from headphone ambience, drifting dub-like sound-scapes, dance, the dreaded IDM field with influen...view item »
