Strobe Vinyl Returns!
Strobe Records is excited to announce the reissue of the original Strobe Records catalogue on vinyl in partnership with Above Board Distribution (UK). The first release – STR001 – Infra Red EP will be available June 30, 2017 and is available for pre-order
Ron Allen and Hayden Andre are two artist names that some may not be familiar with outside of rare record aficionado circles, but they certainly deserve to have more credit. They crafted some of the most original, fresh, deep and interesting house and techno records to come out of their native Canada.
Originally released in 1991, and the first release on their soon to be cult imprint Strobe, ‘Metamorphasis’ is a strong statement of intent, across six tracks Allen and Andre lay down a plethora of styles ranging from the deepest house sounds to more warehouse leaning bleep style tracks, deep sub bass, dreamy washing pads and taut drum programming are all the order of the day here and boy are we all the better off for it! This is essential stuff for all house and techno lovers out there, the real deal indeed!
The duo, and their label, went on to release numerous other future classics and gems during it’s lifespan, some of which will now see the light of day again via a string of fully legit remastered reissues overseen by Ron Allen himself. A long time want by many, often expensive and topping the lists of those ‘in the know’ ‘Metamorphasis’ is now available again, as it was originally released way back in ’91 with original Strobe artwork intact. Remastered and reissued from directly from Ron’s personal source materials it’s time these artifacts were made available again for 2017. A truly essential release!
