The resurgent Forward Strategy Group aka Patrick Walker and Al Matthews made their Substance debut back in 2010 following their breakthrough ‘Applied Generics’ EP, and have gone on to produce a series of killer releases on the likes of Perc Trax, ＡＲＴＳ and Mord Records, slaying clubs the world over. The FSG discipline has though always been supplemented by a range of other electronic explorations, presented via numerous solo monikers. For the 12th Birthday, they have chosen to debut a special FSG live PA drawing on two of the very best, Bleaching Agent and User Engine.
