Big Strick keeps it in the family as the latest release on his label comes from his son. Favouring a similar approach to his dad, Strickland Jnr. delivers the killer, percussive techno of 'Chili Cheese Fries' and lays down skittish drums and jazzy flourishes on the excellent ‘Idee Fixe’. Proving that he’s not just a chip off the old block and that he has his own identity, the young producer also drops two excellent mid-tempo, beatsy tracks, ‘Vanilla Sky’ and ‘The Tomorrow People’, which inhabit a middle ground between Detroit techno and dusty hip-hop.
