"Stockholm, Sweden's Mikael Stravöstand represents the first of many new Scandinavian talents that will emerge in the Force Inc. family over the course of 2001. Stravöstand is a key figure in the Swedish electronic scene as a long-time event organizer, sound installation artist and label manager of the underground Mitek label. Over the past year, he has performed continuously that included a successful 32 date North American tour. He has releases and contributions on labels Tigerbeat6, 12k and Mitek. Reduce continues Force Inc.'s development of click-techno, where the unessentialist sounds of glitches, crackles and skips infiltrate the structure of minimal techno's 4/4 drive formula. Stravöstand emanates a unique approach to compositions, taking interest in the use of randomness and the unexpected towards his methods of working. Reduce is a very visual and natural project; deep, dubby techno mingles with the glitchy pulses and beats. The result is a perfect order of balance and harmony for the listener. Stravöstand presents a new platform for dance music. Essential for fans of Chain Reaction, Clicks & Cuts and SND. Reduce crosses between dancefloor techno and experimental electronic music."
