A project of Portland, OR-based DJ and multi-instrumentalist Paul Dickow — also a member of Nudge and Fontanelle — Strategy fuses dub, funk, house, disco, ambient, and pop into a uniquely shimmering, free-flowing, genre-defying sound. Dickow began working as Strategy in 1998, using an intricate and deeply layered approach that debuted with 2001's Counter-Clangs single on Archigramophone. He released his first full-length, Strut, two years later, and also remixed a track for Stars as Eyes. Singles and EPs on ORAC and Shockout followed; in 2004, Strategy debuted on Kranky with Drumsolo's Delight, which had a more structured feel than his debut. Dickow also founded the Community Library label with David Chandler, aka Solenoid; the label released Strategy's 2005 12" single World House. Remixes for Nice Nice, the Blow, and the Juan Maclean followed, along with 2006's Fields of May single. Future Rock, Strategy's most complex yet accessible work to date, was released in 2007. Music for Lamping arrived on Audio Dregs early the following year.
