Houndstooth Releases Remix Comp Featuring Special Request, Akkord, and More
- Words: James Eaton
It has been quite a big year for Fabric-affiliated label Houndstooth, having released a slew of quality releases from the likes of Akkord, Special Request, Call Super, and many others. To cap off its impressive run, the imprint has released a special remix EP which finds its catalog of artists remixing one another's tunes. Called HTH vs. HTH, the record is something that label A&R Rob Booth says he's "wanted to do to give something back to the people who've been buying the [label's] records," in order to give them "some new and exclusive music that would tie off the year and release something that will act as an affordable label sampler to introduce casual listeners to other Houndstooth artists." Houndstooth's new compilation features new productions from House of Black Lanterns, shadowy techno duo Akkord, Paul Woolford's Special Request moniker, Call Super, Second Storey, _Unsubscribe_, and Throwing Snow's Snow Ghosts project. HTH vs. HTH can be previewed and purchased at a very low cost from the Houndstooth website, here; streaming clips can be found below.
