Aisha 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 ...view item »

Soft as Snow
Deep Wave

They may be called Soft as Snow (cue My Bloody Valentine comparisons) but in fact this Norwegian band are more in tune with the industrial and coldwave groups of the early 80s. Think Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle-influenced clank matched with IDM, techno and something of ...view item »

Call Super
Arpo

This snuck up on me. Boo, it’s a new Call Super album. This record’s title comes from his nickname, Arpo, but don’t go calling him that because it’s only reserved for friends. Once again on Houndstooth, Joseph Richmond-Seaton’s electronic project finally takes time out of the eternal 12” cycle to go into album...view item »

Special Request
Belief System

Special Request is Paul Woolford’s project for exploring his love of raved-up pirate radio, and new album Belief System is something of an epic relea...view item »

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...view item »

18+
They Remixes

Ah, the gruesome twosome’s remix EP. Yep, there are secrets hidden behind those innocent high school impressions of the members of 18+, secrets that I wouldn’t even understand. Have a listen to their LP ‘Trust’ and tell me I’m lying. Aside from the disappointment with their omission of a remix of ‘Eyes Shut&rs...view item »

Shift Work
Document II

Careful folks - listen to one too many records by The Fall and Factory Floor and you could end up calling your band Shift Work. At ease… someone's already beaten you to it. ‘Document II’ appears to be the erm… second offering from this pair. The first ca...view item »

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!...view item »

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...view item »

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 d...view item »

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 Aug...view item »

18+
Collect

These are naughty people. They sing about the cardinal sins of the flesh, something that as middle aged record store guys we have very minimal experience of. One is a man and one is a woman and they seem to sing to each other as if they’ve abstained from sex in many months and have been thrust together in the back of a ...view item »

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 ...view item »

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...view item »

Aisha 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 you...view item »

Akkord
HTH040 (Regis / Fis Remixes)

Uncompromising Brummy techno master Regis and Kiwi grime bludgeoner Fis both take elements of ‘Gravure’ and ‘Continuum’ for the second set of Akkord remixes, preceded by The Haxan Cloak and ...view item »

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...view item »

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 disto...view item »

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” si...view item »

Akkord
HTH030

The once-mysterious Akkord drop this remix 12” on Houndstooth, and it’s a proper weird one. The electronic label, riding off the success of Call Super’s recent release, decide to take electronic explorations to the extreme, endorsing these mad reworks of material from none other than Synkro and ...view item »

18+
Trust

Welcome to a world of filth. Truly one of the most apt names for an artist, 18+ is a peek into the dirtiest corners of the human mind, guided by the voices and minimal beats of the anonymous duo depicted on the cover. You’ll have to wash a few times to integrate back into society and buy that loaf of bread from the bakery. There&rs...view item »

Soft as Snow
Glass Body Remixed

Here we have Houndstooth throwing Soft as Snow’s gothic 12” Glass Body to the, er, remix hounds. This time the teeth are definitely sharp, with the likes of Lucy from the dank Stroboscopic Artefacts and Factory Floor’s Gabe Gurnsey among others reworking th...view item »

Call Super
Suzi Ecto

Super busy label is Houndtooth. Interesting to note it is Fabric's in-house imprint too. So being a pretty damn legendary club means they should know what they're doing when it comes to releasing records? You wouldn't catch them upsetting folk with that Vessel album would you? Luckily they do know what they'r...view item »

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 wor...view item »

Akkord
HTH020

"Minimal but nice". I'm liking this 12" Smoky late night dub-inflected atmospherics. The opening track 'Gravure' is like smoke twirling off a 'funny' cigarette and colliding with a set of windchimes. Really 3AM after-the-party stuff. 'Continuum' get the party going again with some classic drum & bass moves. 'Typeface' is also beat driven &nb...view item »
