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 flow forever apparently. More than a decade in and Strategy's strategies only continue to pinwheel and proliferate, as showcased on his latest capsule 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, flow, 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 electro-house jams about their hot dog condiment preferences? NOT ENOUGH.
