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 Paul Dickow (a.k.a Strategy). He's had a bunch of sweet stuff out on DFA, Kranky plus a bunch of other labels and always delivers the goods. Quite a coup for the label me thinks. His schtick is that he's very hands on and musical in his approach, surrounding himself with tons of boxes and gadgets when playing live, kinda like Eats Tapes or other homegrown electronic acts of that nature. Here he treats us to five ambient infused electro-jams bringing together elements of Deep House, Techno Trance, Electro, Dub and Acid, mixing them with prankster-like skill and enthusiasm. 'Skanking Stabs' is a particularly good example of his tomfoolery with cheeky off beat (or parhaps upstroke) synths comically bouncing away in the mush of washed out Dub-i-House grooves. Same could be said of the Balearic Trance meets 2-step bumper that kicks of the B-side. Well Ayia Napa. Gotta love this stuff. Both inventive and fun for dancing. The way it should be if you ask me.
