Houndstooth - The Haxan Cloak & Vatican Shadow remixes of Akkord


Houndstooth - The Haxan Cloak & Vatican Shadow remixes of Akkord

Sacred geometry, complex polyrhythms and clinical sound design all collide in the work of Manchester outfit, Akkord, who selected two of their favorite artists to reinterpret their HTH020 EP. The results are breath-taking – powerful and utterly ferocious.

Tri-Angle Records’ The Haxan Cloak dissected elements from all four tracks on HTH020, reassembling them into a 10-minute masterpiece, a wall of sound that defies classification. Meanwhile, fabric’s Room 2 inspired Hospital Productions label boss Vatican Shadow arranges parts of ‘Typeface’ and ‘Greyscale’ along with his own sounds, to create an intricate, ominous techno trip.

Mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy and pressed on 180g vinyl, the HTH030 12” is a companion piece to the HTH020 EP, with a reversed colour scheme, debossed cover and postcard insert. Buy your copy from this store to receive free WAV files upon release, and pre-order to receive a discount.
