Sacred geometry, complex polyrhythms and clinical sound design all collide in the work of Manchester outfit, Akkord, who selected two of their favourite 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 assembles parts of ‘Typeface’ and ‘Greyscale’ along with his own sounds, to create an intricate, ominous techno trip. Cut to heavyweight 180g vinyl by Matt Colton.
Edition of 1000 copies on 180g vinyl with a reversed colour scheme of HTH020 in a debased cover with postcard insert.
