Release on vinyl & digital formats in late May.
Forward Strategy Group, one of Perc Trax’s central acts return with their first EP since their debut album ‘Labour Division’ was released in May of last year. Since then they have gigged around Europe including gigs at Berlin’s two temples of techno, Berghain and Tresor and have had their album tracks remixed by UK industrial/synth fusionists Factory Floor and Perc Trax’s man in Athens, Sawf.
Continuing the expansion of their sound first heard on ‘Labour Division’ the EP opens with ‘We’re Looking For Manpower’, one of their most expansive tracks to date based around floating chord sequences and a momentum heavy, clap driven groove. Next ‘Clean Neckline’ toys with broken beats and grinding machine noise, somehow distorted & saturated in sound whilst remaining clean and crisp.
Finally the epic ‘Code # 3’ continues the sound of Code # 1 and # 2 from their debut Perc Trax EP with a rock solid 4/4 kick, a snare that could floor a toddler from 50 paces and a host of rattling percussion patterns providing all the rhythmic interest your ears could desire.
