Stratus Energy

Stratus Energy by Faze Action
Released: Jun 2009
Label: Faze Action Records
Following a handful of recent singles (and a nice boost from Carl Craig's 2008 remix of their reissued single "In the Trees"), Faze Action's first album in five years continues to mine the vein of classic disco that they've worked for a decade. Chugging Italo synths and Gamble & Huff strings are all over it; the sound is enormous, a mammoth amalgam of live instruments and dubby studio smarts. Check the happily overblown "Danae's Journey," the Bullitt-worthy thrill ride "Stratus Energy" and "Keep It Coming," an invigorating fusion of cocksure string vamps and fibrillating Clavinets.
