about

The breadth of bass and rhythm imagineerings devised weekly by Portland machinist Paul Dickow is as invigorating as it is overwhelming – some cups run dry and some runneth over forever. Nearly two decades in Strategy's strategies continue to pinwheel and proliferate, as showcased on his latest collection, Boxology, which swirls through slinky sunrise house ("Panorama," "The Mink"), acid-splashed funktronix ("The Works," "Drag It Through The Garden"), jazzy Detroit shuffles ("A Secret," "Planet Of Jazz"), and airy dancefloor escalators ("Tomorrow May Never Come"). Throughout, Dickow wields a light touch, allowing each concoction to fizz, flex, and ferment before queuing up the next hardware pattern or pitch-bent synth hook. The fact that the bulk of these pieces were road-tested at west coast parties over the last couple years helps explain their fluidity and sneaky footloose agenda. Also worth mentioning/praising: for a dude this deep in the game this is some seriously un-cynical music. Who else writes Chi-house jams about their hot dog condiment preferences? NOT ENOUGH.
