Faze Action Stratus Energy
- Words: Tyler McCauley
- Label: Faze Action
- XLR8R Rating: 6.5/10
Although Faze Action (a.k.a. brothers Simon and Robin Lee) have been cranking out disco-tinged dance music for a while, Stratus Energy finds the duo taking on a whole live band and delving deeper into the space disco of artists like Escort, Jeff Sfire, and the DC Recordings roster. The record expertly recalls the glitz and glamour of the late disco era, complete with lush vocal refrains and faithful Moroder synth leads, especially on early album highlights “Good Lovin” and “Starship.” However, when held up to leaders of the current disco pack like Holy Ghost! and Hercules and Love Affair, Faze Action merely feel like they're spinning great b-sides, not future classics.
