D. Strange: EP 12"

D. Strange: EP 12″

Late last year, Indianapolis’ D. Strange followed several Bandcamp releases with a four-song EP on Vanity Press. Hard to place in any one category, this is simply kinetic, exploratory club music at its finest. “Loaded” is a bleepy, breaky puzzle with lots of heavy bass plunges and ricocheting vocal samples, and a sort of anticipatory, floating-in-space breakdown. “Dat N. Gone” is like particles of spacey electro and ghettotech mingling together to form a new energy source. “Shift” is more electro to cruise down the aquabahn to, and “IRO” is a downtempo, not-quite-trap curiosity with indistinct vocals (a lower mumbly loop and a slow, ping-ponging echo) and a few swerving-downward riffs.
