First Stryke Policy

DJ Stryke plots a local dance music timeline

Stryke wanted to cover different electronic genres on Pages from the Blue Diary, which exacted an emotional toll on its creator. That's probably why, he theorizes, it took him so long to put it together.

"Pretty much everything I write has a story behind it, which is unusual for dance music. It's pretty natural for me when I write a song," he says. The breathy, piano-based ballad "Lost" tore him up to record.

"There were days where I would just emotionally break down in the studio. Songs like 'Lost' took me forever to complete, because I would just break down crying while I was singing," he confesses. "The writing just kind of flowed. It's my way of exorcising my inner demons, I suppose."
