Tri-Angle Records’ THE HAXAN CLOAK and Hospital Productions label boss VATICAN SHADOW have each dismantled and entirely reconfigured Akkord’s HTH020 EP. The results are mind-blowing. The Haxon Cloak’s take on ‘HTH020′ begins with a gorgeous snarl (listen through your headphones, it rolls from ear to ear and it’s amazing!!) and a soft, thudding bass that explodes like a soundgasm inside your ear. The layers of sound build with eery melodies and sci-fi-esque effects which are totally encapsulating. 10 minutes of interesting sounds that will have you hanging on to every beat. The track builds into something celestial, cinematic and incredibly epic. Just wow.
Vatican Shadow has arranged parts of ‘Typeface’ and ‘Greyscale’ along with his own sounds, to create an intricate, ominous techno trip. It’s dark and powerful with a melody that adds warmth and draws the sounds together. The atmosphere is intense and captivating. Both of these tracks are incredible – just please make sure you do them justice and listen on some decent speakers/headphones.
