Beats that make loose clothing shimmer and earrings rattle
Strobes is an intensely high-octane group that fire off frantic tempos and intricate complexities, yet they also retain an accessibility through fluid grooves and an engaging sense of melodic intuition.
Conjuring big beats and a vast array of sonic possibilities, Strobes flickers effortlessly between the worlds of electro-improv, minimalist polyrhythm, Afrocentric grooves and distinctively original hooks. Built from collective composition, studio production, live sampling and improv jams, the music ranges from fiery, exhilarating odd-tempo loops, to polyphonic synth soundscapes and 'beats that make loose clothing shimmer and earrings rattle' (TheArtsDesk).
