Review – Dub Phizix and Skeptical feat Strategy – Marka – Exit Records – by Scruff
Dark twisted Voodoo nastiness straight from Manchester’s “Dub Phizix’ with the
help of ‘Skeptical’ . Not to be pigeon holed into one style, this is an amalgamation
of twisted ‘Dancehall’ dark “Dub’ and futuristic minimal ‘Drum and Bass’. Slow
whirling ‘bassline’ creeps through the track as its punctuated with heavy kicks and tight
snares. ‘Strategy’ rhythmical tears through with pin point accuracy and speed to his flow.
Its not what ‘Strategy’ rhymes are about in this track, its how they are delivered, short flurries
of rhythmical off kilter lyrics make this track stick in your head. The chorus is littered
with industrial dark sound affect as a growling riff is reverberated around. The video set
outside a city tower block; like a 21st century urban remake of the classic ‘Voodoo
people’. ‘Strategy’ takes centre stage dressed head to toe as some sort of Voodoo native
American Indian with a tomahawk while fire dancers twirl in the background.
