about

To celebrate five years releasing electronic music we are delighted to offer a free 15 track compilation showcasing celebrated label classics next to rarities and unreleased gems from associates old and new.

The initial aim was to represent the eclectic programming ethos of Friday and Saturday nights at fabric, and that hasn’t changed over the last five years. In that time, there have been plenty of highlights, from the emergence of Call Super as a defining artist of his day, to standout LPs from the likes of Marquis Hawkes and Special Request via ‘floor slaying 12”s from Akkord and Guy Andrews. Innovation has always been key at Houndstooth, but the continued nurturing and evolution of label acts has also remained an important aspect of the operation.

All of this is evident on the compilation, which kicks off with the sub-atomic whizz of Snow Ghosts’ ‘Vetiver’ from 2016 and takes in an Akkord cut from the label’s 50th release, the Mary Anne Hobbs-backed 'O.M.A' (Abul Mogard Remix) by Aïsha Devi and a dark and absorbing track from Call Super. Elsewhere there is acid beeps from Marquis Hawkes, sombre Throwing Snow cut ‘Greed’ and the previously vinyl only ‘Lolita’ (Dub Mix) from Special Request.

Brand new music comes in the form of a Shift Work remix of 18+, a new version of a track from Soft as Snow's debut EP and ‘Bassday’ from Second Storey. Rounding out the release, there is a new version of ‘The Hunted’ by Snow Ghosts (the original was used as the official worldwide X-Men Apocalypse trailer) plus a Pan Daijing track from the recently acclaimed, T.S Eliot-inspired In Death’s Dream Kingdom compilation, and finally Haxan Cloak's hugely climactic rework of Akkord’s 'HTH020' EP.

Track Name: Snow Ghosts - Vetiver
I built myself a small cocoon
To stop my heart from craving you
Of sandalwood and vetiver
Of silkworm spit and mother’s hair
The inside made of rosemary
The kind that won’t bend easily
Or break beneath this bane of trust
Or turn that awful shade of rust

These days, when you wear my skin
I feel somehow overdressed

I cut my teeth when I broke out
And spread my wings to flee the doubt
The dust lay stagnant in the air
But I have all my back to bare

These days, when you wear my skin
I feel somehow overdressed
These days, when you wear my skin
I feel somehow overdressed

I built myself….
