Portland’s STRATEGY’s impressive 15 year plus discography rests on his ability to reference disparate music forms whilst making them sound entirely and distinctly his own. Whether crystalline dub, cerebellum-tingling ambient, atavistic post-punk or two steps beyond, Strategy has remade these all in his inimitable image. On Pressure Wassure, he not only plunders the fertile bounty of early ‘90s UK hardcore, he eviscerates it’s taut snares, bowel shaking bass and Dionnysian spirit, reimagining that eras ecstasy enlightened explorations for contemporary dancefloors, whilst sprinkling in neon p-funk flourishes, deft bassline deconstructions and the sheer murder of once familiar samples. In the span of just four devastating tracks, Strategy offers up supple, devastating pressure. Pressed in an edition of 300 copies with hand-assembled, label-bankrupting red flocked covers.
