Aïsha Devi
S.L.F. Versions

S.L.F. Versions is a four-track, 12" EP of some pretty savage and radical remixes of Aïsha Devi’s recent well-received release S.L.F.. Its component parts are given overhauls by newcomers and scene veterans alike, from Chinese artist 33EMYBW, Indonesian duo Gabber Modus Operandi, Scandinavian producer Varg and the Equiknoxx collective.

The Keep
Primer

Oliver Knowles is a musician with Indonesian heritage who bases himself in Gothenburg, Sweden. He records under the name The Keep. He makes music that is built from a series of drones. Primer was recorded in Barcelona and is inspired by Catalonian street festivals which he experienced during his time there. His Indonesian heritage appears in his music through samples of traditional Indonesian instruments.

Katie Gately
Loom

Dedicated to the memory of her mother, who passed away in 2018, experimental musician Katie Gately presents her second album Loom. With field recordings ranging from cut-up audio from her parents’ wedding to the sound of actual earthquakes, this beautiful album bears the profundity of permanent loss.

Special Request
Belief System

Special Request is Paul Woolford’s project for exploring his love of raved-up pirate radio, and Belief System is something of an epic release. This monster was assembled with sounds from the archives, contact mic recordings and modular synth activity, as well as the usual production tools, so there are some particularly wild noises flaring up all over this record. Double CD and quadruple LP editions available, on Houndstooth.

Special Request
Offworld

The third of four albums expected in 2019 alone by Leeds producer Special Request, a.k.a. Paul Woolford. From his residency at legendary Leeds house night Back To Basics to his involvement on the soundtrack of Blade Runner 2049, Woolford’s artistry is hugely diverse, and this latest double-album Offworld is another demonstration of that. 

Special Request
Bedroom Tapes

Bedroom Tapes sees techno wizard Special Request throwing it back to old cuts recorded onto cassette that were unearthed recently when moving house. Mastered by Matt Colton, who has similarly lent his talents to artists like James Blake and Hot Chip, the tracks retain every trace of the original recordings onto tape, hiss and all. A time capsule, if you will, for one of electronic music’s most enigmatic and talented main players.

Akkord
HTH035

Reminiscent of Cex or Hrvatski dropping acid, HTH035 features time-warping beats, paranoid pads and an inexplicable catchiness to it all. Akkord is here remixed by Fis and OG Regis, the first leaning more towards the psychedelic electronica, the latter responsible for a slowed and distorted techno-feel.

Aïsha Devi
S.L.F.

Aïsha Devi’s new release. It got out. The Swiss-born composer of rave-ambiance twistypop returns with a twelve described by the label as “an illuminating hijacking of collective consciousness”. What does that mean, you ask? It means tropes of trap, club, computer boffinry, haze-pop and cyberculture together in a lift.

Special Request
VORTEX

Special Request AKA Paul Woolford ostensibly makes music with minimal effort but still manages to break new ground in the electronic world. The apparent lackadaisical approach he takes to making the music certainly doesn’t come across in the high energy sounds he produces. Vortex is his new album and it is believed to have some of his friends worried about the inner workings of his mind. On Houndstooth.

Penelope Trappes
Penelope Redeux

After her album Penelope Two, Penelope Trappes asked a number of musicians if they fancied a go at the tracks. The result is the pun-ily titled Penelope Redeux. She's managed to get everyone from Mogwai to Cosey Fanni Tutti to Throwing Snow on board to tackle her dark and brooding electronic compositions. 

Snow Ghosts
A Quiet Ritual

Following the first phase of their career, which saw an incredible nine records in a little over three years, Snow Ghosts return with yet another studio album, A Quiet Ritual. Their entrancing and weighty blend of electronica and post-rock this time encompasses a number of unusual instruments, including an Iron Age horn excavated from a site in Scotland. 

Abul Mogard
And We Are Passing Through Silently

Abul Mogard does great stuff with his synthesiser(s), and And We Are Passing Through Silently presents a particular corner of his practice: his elaborate reworkings (to call them ‘remixes’ doesn’t feel quite right) of other people’s tracks. Aisha Devi and Becoming Animal are two of those who get the Mogard treatment, and the results are lush. Out on Houndstooth.

Penelope Trappes
Penelope Two

Penelope Two: the second solo album from Penelope Trappes (also of The Golden Filter and Priscilla Sharp). The Trappes sound is slick and noirish electronic shoegaze pop, all slow and cinematic. Trappes’ voice sets the tone with its cold cool: this album will likely do great things for Julee Cruise fans. Its released by Houndstooth.

Various
In Death's Dream Kingdom

The Houndstooth label tasked the 26 acts on this extensive 4x LP box set with the following brief: take T. S. Eliot's 1925 poem 'The Hollow Men' with its doom and apocalyptic atmospheres as inspiration for a new track each. The contributions include music from Pan Daijing, Lanark Artefax, Roly Porter, Abul Mogard and Gazelle Twin with particular reference to the phrase in the poem: "In Death's Dream Kingdom". Perhaps appropriately dark in theme for today's challenging times, the collection is nevertheless diverse yet coherent in styles, aesthetics and ambiences. Topical electronics: apply liberally.

Throwing Snow
Loma

Throwing Snow, AKA London-based Ross Tones makes music that combines dubstep, house, UK funky and post rock. Loma consists of eight tracks, compilling his recent series of EPs, including a mammoth 11-minute remix by Brooklyn-based Octa Octa. Double coloured vinyl LP (one yellow disc one green) and CD on Houndstooth.

Vester Koza
Loader Mither

Vester Koza drops his debut LP via Houndstooth. Loader Mither - that means ‘a load of bother’, by the way - is one of those singular-minded records that both celebrate and mourn British rave culture. Track titles like ‘my well crap car (mardy mix)’ suggest an album that doesn’t take itself too seriously, but then the track’s deft assemblage of halcyon synths and skittering drums indicate otherwise. It’s all very Aphex Twin.

Penelope Trappes
Carry Me

Run the Trappes! The Penelope Trappes, to be precise. Having released her acclaimed debut LP Penelope One on Optimo last year, Trappes is now hot-footing it over to Houndstooth for the follow-up. To tide people over before Penelope Two (seems she’s got a thing going there) Trappes is releasing this 7”. It contains album track ‘Carry Me’ and exclusive tune ‘I Can Hear You…’. The former is a mournful, syrup-slow ballad in the Grouper vein; the latter a Gothic Colin Newman tribute. Carry Me also comes with a CD on which Abul Mogard turns the title track into a reverberant drone.

Marquis Hawkes
The Marquis of Hawkes

Like many of today’s electronic artists, Marquis Hawkes bases himself in Berlin. On his new album The Marquis Of Hawkes he takes us on a journey through beatless drones, deep dub, body jerkers and some retro bass jabs. Jamie Lidell and Ursula Rucker make guest appearances. Double LP on Houndstooth.

Pariah
Here From Where We Are

Pariah makes his long-awaited return with his even-longer-awaited debut LP. The reason that the one born Arthur Cayzer has taken so long to drop Here From Where We Are is down to the fact that, after getting a little jaded by music, he took time to rediscover the sounds that really made him tick. As such, this record is a nice mix of the sort of banging techno he does alongside Blawan in Karenn and synth ambiences, sound art and more. He sounds like he’s enjoying himself, which is nice. Out via Houndstooth.

Aïsha Devi
DNA Feelings

Danse Noire co-founder Aisha Devi drops the follow-up to Of Matter And Spirit via Houndstooth. In DNA Feelings, Devi has created a visceral LP which bends rave styles to her will. The manner in which the sounds of the club are re-purposed as platforms for Devi’s powerful voice and dense, impressionistic lyrics is thrilling, unique, and the sign of genuine talent. Fans of Arca, Future Brown and Mykki Blanco will enjoy.

Call Super
Arpo

Fresh from a collaborative 12” with Beatrice Dillon, here is the new full-length statement from Call Super. Arpo is his second album, and it inhabits that super-textured ambient-leaning techno space that we’ve come to love from the producer. Eleven tracks deployed across CD and double LP editions, from Houndstooth.

Second Storey
Lucid Locations

After releases on R&S and Trust, Second Storey returns to Houndstooth for his second full length album. Lucid Locations forces identity into the forefront, shifting itself from angular and fiery percussion to ambient abstracted glitches down to a Drexciya inspired groove. A genre mixer with bass and rhythm at its core.

18+
They Remixes

18+ generously handed over a load of stems to some respected producers, and what they got back is represented on They Remixes. Suicideyear, Mr. Mitch, Tia Maria and Audri Nix do the duties, representing sounds from trap to grime and countries from Puerto Rico to Portugal. 500 copies of heavyweight vinyl, on Houndstooth.

Shift Work
Document II

Shift Work are a pair of analogue synth tweakers making tightly flowing pieces of hypnotising arpeggiations. Document II contains Two Shift Work originals and two remixes, one a slowed down jam from DVA Damas and one a quintessentially Factory Floor-esque Factory Floor reworking. 12” on Houndstooth.

Throwing Snow
Mosaic VIPs

Three tracks from Throwing Snow’s full length LP Mosaic, remixed for Record Store Day. On this limited edition EP (340 for the UK and Ireland) his tracks have attained a catchy feel, geared towards opening sets or the last songs you listen to before you head out to the party. A must-have for the collectors!

Snow Ghosts
A Wrecking

Some genre bending from Snow Ghosts. A Wrecking is the second full length from the trio. This one sets to be a journey into layered vocals, wilting synthesisers, electronics and acoustic instruments working in sinister harmony. Mixing dark electronica with folk-ish melodies and expansive arrangements. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Houndstooth.
  • Label(s):
  • Houndstooth

Throwing Snow
Embers

Throwing Snow is a County Durham project, pulling field recordings of the local area into the middle of the sound, until synth and landscape become a fine-grained blend. Embers is a semi-aleatoric piece of process music, but it is also damn groovy, reaching peak-hour dancefloor levels of ecstasy at some points. CD and double vinyl editions released by Houndstooth.

Snow Ghosts
Husk

British folktronica duo Snow Ghosts' latest offering is a collation of their two 2016 single releases, Lied and Vetiver. The release also includes a bonus remix from noise artist Prurient. Formed in 2008 as a merger of their aliases Throwing Snow and Augustus Ghost, the duo offers a potent blend of dark experimental electronica and captivating folklore-influenced vocals. Released as clear Vinyl LP on the Houndstooth label.

18+
Collect

Once anonymous duo 18+ return to Houndstooth for their sophomore album following 2014’s Trust. Recording and collaborating split between Berlin and Honolulu Justin Swinburne and Samia Mirza pour this separation into their work together. Sonically sounding like The Streets with a contemporary trap twist.

Marquis Hawkes
Social Housing

Proper house for proper dancers, with a huge bounce to the kick drums and a rubbery boogie in the synth-lines. Marquis Hawkes works wonders on his debut full-length album, pulling together the different strands of his beloved genre into a triumphant whole, including disco-leaning tracks and vocal numbers (feat, Jocelyn Brown). Social Housing is out on Houndstooth.

Guy Andrews
Our Spaces

Guy Andrews became frustrated with his musical direction. His DJ sets weren’t quite doing it for him anymore. Starting from a clean slate with his debut album Our Spaces, he has created an album of electronica that shakes of the shackles of working within one genre. Our Spaces balances aggressiveness with sensitivity perfectly for a blissful experience. On Houndstooth.

Aïsha Devi
Of Matter and Spirit

Aisha Devi is a producer who stands somewhat apart from most of her peers. Of Matter And Spirit mixes Devi’s unusual vocals with hovering synth patterns to make tracks that skirt up against much contemporary electronic songcraft whilst remaining crucially different. A spiritual trip well worth your time, on Houndstooth.

Akkord
HTH040 (Regis / Fis Remixes)

Finally pressed to vinyl due to great demand, ‘HTH040’ is the final chapter in Akkord’s ‘HTH035’ package consisting of two remixes, both sourced with elements of tracks from the ‘HTH020’ EP. The first track is a left field experiment in drum and bass drone, the second an atmospheric sludgy arrangement of dub techno loops.

Marquis Hawkes
Raw Materials

Dancefloor beat pioneer Marquis Hawkes’ latest release ‘Raw Materials’ revisits the primal house rhythms he made a name for himself with during his time with Dixon Avenue Basement Jams. Citing influences such as house originators Ron Hardy, Gene Hunt and Roy Davis Jr, ‘Raw Materials’ title track is a dreamy analogue beat driven track with ethereal vocals, followed by two primitive tracks that cut straight to the core.

18+
Dry

Single the second from 18+’s Trust album. Dry is a slinky beast, trapped up percussion production poured over a sexy core. 18+ turns out to be an appropriate name for the duo: this is suggestive stuff, highly stylised and monochrome. Pretty compelling aesthetic all round. This 7” single is out on Houndstooth.

Throwing Snow
Avarice

A gooey tart of electronics and acoustics from Throwing Snow. There is a lot to be said for Avarice; loads of drones and violins set the mood, whilst some sort of Oud shit and a grumpy sub-fart plow along the bottom of this slow-mo trip-hopper. Don't worry, they actually sound great together. Out on 12" vinyl from Houndstooth.

Akkord
HTH030

Menacing techno 12" vinyl from Houndstooth label. HTH030 are two reworks of Akkord's HTH020 EP, via The Haxan Cloak and Vatican Shadow. Taking the HTH020 tracks a their own weird and foreboding directions, HTH030 sees both artists showcasing their esoteric production models, churning out two cryptic 4am techno leviathans.

18+
Trust

18+ return from mixtape hell with a whole lot of fresh ideas and their debut record, 'Trust'. The duo spend most of the record's runtime breathing and hyperventilating over delicate and sensual electro-pop tunes, leaving the textures and eclectic amples sparse and intimate, their vocals rising and falling against solid ground. Not for the faint -- or repressed -- of heart.

Soft as Snow
Glass Body Remixed

Houndstooth makes way for their old friends Soft as Snow, a duo whose name doesn't quite fit with the next-generation, sci-fi sounds they bring to their electro-pop. 'Glass Body Remixed' takes one of their prime cuts and reroutes it twice; first, Lucy of Stroboscopic Artefacts unleashes it onto the floor, and then Factory Floor's Gabe Gurnsey extends it and sustains it into a gruesome acid jam, 'til there's nothing left. 

Call Super
Suzi Ecto

Call Super is Joe Seaton, a Berlin-based house and techno newbie about to release his anticipated debut record 'Suzi Ecto' for Houndstooth Records, an in-house of Fabric (pretty sure we're all familiar with that one, right?) where his EPs have been appearing. Seaton and Houndstooth have warned that 'Suzi Ecto' is gonna be both blissed-out and totally terrifying. Sounds about right.

Second Storey
Shaman Champagne

Alec Storey ditches the comedy name for something a little more sensible and delivers a kicking, dark cosmic techno freak-out that has its roots still slightly submerged in the outer reaches of what was once dubstep but spikes his Shaman Champagne with some filthy old warehouse dust and mind-spangling trippy ephemera. Another track worthy of mention here recalls the more delirious material on DJ Hells's once glorious International Deejay Gigolos.
