Mall Grab goes gabber, sort of.
Strangers is named after the pair's only collaborative track, a melancholic roller that derives an angsty intensity through a plaintive hummed vocal melody. It's pretty different to the other four tunes on the record, two solo tracks and remixes from each contributor. For one thing, they're all more aggro. Blown-out kicks and macho vocal loops drive both "?" and his remix of Skin On Skin's "Got Me Fucked Up." These are head-bashing beats, especially the gabber-tinged "?." Skin On Skin's original ends up feeling the grooviest, as its electro rhythm lays a slick foundation for sub-bass hits and winding, distorted synths. Overall, the stylistic variation on Strangers muddies Alexander's identity. It may been stronger as a solo record by Skin On Skin, perhaps with a Mall Grab remix.
