You'd think that with a title like Strut, Strategy's debut would be bursting with big swaggering sounds. Instead, Strategy's point of pride seems to be in his wide palette of rather small though stylishly melded beats. "Fuck It, Baby" is tiny, kicky dance music-IDM for toy soldiers-and "Splash" starts out with sweet patterned beats that get rubbed away by light swipes of sandpaper. "Delicious" builds into a muted, watery reverb, an amniotic lullaby similar in tone to "The Sea Is So Cold." From the budding Portland experimental electronic scene, Strategy shouts proud.
