***Strategy comes correct with two new dub reggae burners. "Going Street Dub" is a tribute to both Going Street (the notoriously hazy Portland residence of Strategy, Nudge, and Nice Nice), and to early-to-mid-'80s electronics-augmented reggae (e.g. Sly & Robbie, Scientist, early On-U Sound, and the currently spot-lit Bullwackie productions). Tumbling Simmons drum fills and glittering hihats simmer up against crispy chords on the backbeat, and, of course, loads of spring reverb. The Bside is a more spacious track, so named because it debuted at the infamous 420 Dub Night last year at Portland's most crucial underground nightspot, Dunes. The spring reverb returns here - the vibe is half purist '80s reggae, half out-there electronica. Strategy's dubs pay respects to the best elements of the old school, while still bringing his own distinctive beat-shifting, layered sound fragments, and signature soupy production style. Well respected for his dynamic live PAs and general enthusiasm for local music, Strategy is a mainstay of Portland's burgeoning explorative electronica scene. His debut CD, Strut came out last year on Outward Music Co., and with multiple remixes and upcoming releases in the works for labels like ORAC, Kranky, and Shockout, he is
poised to become one of Cascadia's main electronic music exports.
