Distributed titles: Curated releases, and Exclusive color-ways from other great soundtrack releases from around the world.

The Slasher Film Festival Strategy was spawned as a collision of influences (hardcore, harsh noise, power electronics, drone, and the sounds from Vermiform Records) that produced dark ambient and drone compositions that always hinted at horror and science fiction. Slasher Film Festival Strategy has come into a new era with the release of Crimson Throne (2013, Foreign Sounds) and Wet Leather (2013, Mirror Universe) harnessing the power and inspiration of earlier releases, but pulling new energy from minimal electronics, experimental dance, coldwave, and horror/sci-fi soundtrack composition. At time Ashley brings to mind a futuristic Badalamenti who has traded in his piano and orchestra for a Juno-60 and a DX-21. Originally issued as a limited cassette on Mirror Universe Tapes, “Wet Leather” is fully realized with 6 bonus tracks and expanded artwork. The Slasher Film Festival Strategy has recorded countless releases over the last 17 years. Think of “Wet Leather” as the score to an unrealized film that channels b-movies, slasher films, horror, and of course John Carpenter. Aquarius Records speaks highly of SFFS. ” This guy does it way better than most. The synth sounds are thick and gristly, the melodies sinister and ominous, the tracks laced with skeletal drum machines, and sweeping epic backdrops, as far as Carpenter / Goblin worship goes, it doesn’t get much better than this.”
