HTH020 (12")
Cat: HTH 020. Rel: 16 Jun 14
Deep Dubstep
  1. Gravure
  2. Continuum
  3. Typeface
  4. Greyscale
Review: Indigo and Synkro return for Houndstooth duty under the Akkord guise, with HTH020 their first material for the fabric-affiliated label since last year's roundly praised debut album. That long player was perhaps the most confident display of the sound design-heavy production style the Mancunian pair had been narrowing in on since their cultish white label bow, but this new 12" finds them adding whole new levels of darkness to the mix. Moody low end sits deep in the channels; given the space to breath by Akkord who seem careful to restrict their drum samples to the barest of appearances at times (see "Gravure") whilst those out there that enjoyed the Millie + Andrea album for Modern Love will probably gravitate towards "Continuum" which showcases a murky, raw take on breakbeat-led jungle.

  6. Typeface/Greyscale (Vatican Shadow's The World Is Complete)
  7. Gravure/Continuum (Fis Hayfield To New Mills version)
  8. Gravure/Continuum (Regis Whip hand mix)
Review: Manchester collective Akkord are one of Houndstooth's most reliable outfits, having previously delivered an album, and a smattering of EPs for the Fabric-owned imprint. HTH035 gathers together material from their last original 12", plus a quartet of remixes, two of which are brand spanking new. As usual, there's much to enjoy, with the Mancunian combo joining the dots between moody techno, dubstep, rave breakbeats and macabre ambience in their usual clinical, architecturally inspired way. The remixes are predictably strong, with the hypnotic, dreamy techno of Vatican Shadow just edging out Fis' impeccable, string-laden ambience (the epitome of Northern paganism) in the "CD highlight" stakes.

Techno
  1. HTH020 (The Haxan Cloak's Cloud Of Witness)
  2. Typeface/Greyscale ((Vatican Shadow's The World Is Complete)
Review: Earlier this year Houndstooth regulars Akkord released the HTH020 EP, in which the duo took their bass-heavy sound to darker, more industrial places. It's something explored more explicitly on this remix package, which may well have two of the year's most radical tracks revisions. Tri Angle artist The Haxan Cloak delivers the epic 10-minute "Cloud of Witness" remix, taking elements from all four of the original Akkord EP's tracks, and turning them into an unclassifiable behemoth of bass, drone and strobing beats. Vatican Shadow's take on "Greyscale" and "Typeface" is a little more conventional, but nevertheless turns the two tracks into a powerful piece of techno that would demolish a dance floor in the right setting.

Review: Given their obsession with maths, geometry and clandestine soundscapes, you'd expect this debut album from Manchester-based studio boffins Synkro and Indigo to be a murky, otherworldly affair. That it is isn't much of a surprise, though it's hard not to be impressed by the depth of material on offer. This self titled set effortlessly struts between cranky, angular techno ("3dOS", "Hex Ad"), sparse African rhythms ("Smoke Circle"), Skam-ish IDM ("Fooled Edge"), slo-mo industrial drone ("Channel Drift"), and post-dubstep rhythms ("Navigate", the dubwise "Rocendal"). Throughout, there's a claustrophobic air of intense paranoia that's hard to ignore. Impressive stuff.

Experimental/Electronic
  1. Gravure/Continuum (Fis Hayfield To New Mills version) (7:01)
  2. Gravure/Continuum (Regis Whip Hand mix) (6:08)
Review: This 12" sees the welcome vinyl edition of remixes of Akkord's "Gravure/Continuum" from Fis and Regis which originally appeared on a CD issued through Fabric's Houndstooth label earlier this year. With the Mancunian duo possessing such a clinical take on rhythmic construction; it's always interesting to see how artists commissioned to remix Akkord choose to approach the task. Sometime Tri Angle artist Fis is on impeccable form twisting the track into paganistic string-laden ambience on his self-styled 'Hayfield To New Mills' version which brings to mind "Hashshashin Chant" era Demdike Stare. Downwards boss Regis goes for gravelly broken techno on his 'Whip Hand' mix though he channels similar levels of spectral foreboding to Fis in the underlying human groans set deep in the mix.

Obelisk (10")
Cat: HTH 045. Rel: 16 Nov 15
Experimental/Electronic
  1. I - Monolith (3:39)
  2. II - Megalith (6:17)
Played by: Circular Rhythms
Review: Manchester's Akkord have been heavily involved with the development of Fabric's Houndstooth label, and the majority of their output has come from the legendary club's young and vibrant new imprint. Much like fellow Mancunians Demdike Stare, their sound is hard to categorise and distil into one genre; the present "Monolith" sits somewhere between the sparser of Shackleton's tunes, and the whirlpool of styles and genres that fit into the ambient/drone territory. Similarly, "Megalith", on the other hand, is a broken artillery of kicks and sporadic jungle breaks, a gorgeous pile of stop-start bass and drums that keep darting in and out from all corners. Ever thought what 3D music might sound like? This goes pretty damn near. Warmly recommended.
