|Akkord Self Titled Limited 180gram Heavyweight Vinyl 2LP Set
· Following on from a pair of highly sought-after white
labels and the superb ‘Navigate’ EP, Akkord return to Houndstooth with their self-titled debut album.
· Akkord began as a shadowy collective with an espoused passion for mathematics and sacred geometry, crafting intelligent and beautifully oppressive electronic music. Eventually revealed as a collaboration between experienced Mancunian bass producers Synkro and Indigo, ‘Akkord’ blurs the lines between junglist revivalism, smoky ambience, and
suctioned dub, with a consistently engaging pulse linking the styles. Carefully arranged and achieving maximum impact on a proper soundsystem, Akkord have turned in an ominous and daring debut album.
· Cut and mastered by Matt Colton, the double LP format is cut to heavyweight 180g vinyl, and presented in bespoke foiled covers protected by Houndstooth’s distinctive spot-varnished PVC outer sleeves.
