Belgium is bursting at the seams with funked-up, beat-obsessed producers these days, and this latest track from Strand finds the burgeoning, electrifying sound in fine form. "Strandalicious" fires ray after ray of molten-hot synthesizer licks throughout its three-minute run time, the melodies ricoheting around a pitch-shifting drum pattern that hovers above an oscillating bassline. The artist, who is actually Spanish but currently resides in Brussels, is set to release a 10-track digital LP with Lowriders Collective, called Slam Funk, which will also have an abbreviated version of six or seven tracks pressed to wax in a run of 300 copies. Having previously been remixed by Hudson Mohawke and Funckarma, expect a suitably exuberant experience from Strand when his new release comes out next week.
