forward strategy group / factory floor - Labour Division (EP1)

Companion EP to Patrick Walker and Smear's imminent debut album as Forward Strategy Group, featuring two of its heaviest cuts, one exclusive track and a brace of remixes from Factory Floor. 'Labour Division' is a low-slung but shark-eyed warehouse number with shades of Luke Slater's LB Dub Corps project, while 'Mandate' explores darker, more minimal territory, with killer snare edits and scruffily dubbed-out chords, and 'A Greyed Out Life' is lush synth dreamscaping a la C2, Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream and even early Human League. Factory Floor's remix of 'Nihil Novi' is an interesting synthesis of post-DFA dub-disco drum patterns, analogue synth spurts and industrial accenting; better still is the version of the same track by the band's Nik Colk Void, a compelling, skin-crawling work of beatless and bass-heavy electronic abstraction in the spirit of Suum Cuique, Mika Vainio and TG.
