Matthew Dear returns with the mini-LP Backstroke, on which he expands his stylistic boundaries and solidifies his place as not only a master of micro-house, but also as a major force in experimental pop. On the Anger Management 12", Dear backed away from the mic, but Backstroke features vocals more prominently than ever. Dear infuses the music with stunning accessibility and depth, while more familiar elements of his otherworldly style are kneaded into a perfect mix. Also at the forefront are stronger inclinations for tunefulness and the avant-garde, as dark cacophonies of swirling, disembodied voices often give way to gorgeous melodies that carry the record along seamlessly.
