STRATEGY – dub mind paradigm
Strategy is a musical polymath with a signature sound derived from his immersion in hardware-based electronic music. He has spent close to two decades traveling freely through house, techno, rave, noise, ambient, and sounds more difficult to categorize. Strategys sound is inimitable because it is literally built by handhis hands. Through all of this sonic journeying, including multiple full length releases, a constant has been his love of reggae and dub, yet somehow a proper dub album has never emergeduntil now. After two much-loved 7 singles on ZamZamto say nothing of dubwise excursions on Idle Hands, Shockout, Peak Oil, 100% Silk and more - Dub Mind Paradigm is the fulfillment of a clear, simple goal. "I set out to make a full set of dub tracks good enough to make an albumsomething that had always eluded me-- and it worked, finally. A simple exercise in seeing if we could launch the capsule to orbit Planet Reggae and make it home again. Reaching Planet Reggae, the album explores analog caverns of dubwise at all tempos, from the 80s to 140, full of the ghosts of ancient and future technologies, glimmering shards of hope among heaps of folly, ruin and rubble. Music fans with crates deeper than the contemporary will find shades of Wackies, Firehouse, Unity Sound, Burial Mix and more, but only winks and nods no one sounds like Strategy, and Strategy sounds like no one. Edition of 700 copies. Very limited quantity available.
