Manchester's Akkord have been heavily involved with the development of Fabric's Houndstooth label, and the majority of their output has come from the legendary club's young and vibrant new imprint. Much like fellow Mancunians Demdike Stare, their sound is hard to categorise and distil into one genre; the present "Monolith" sits somewhere between the sparser of Shackleton's tunes, and the whirlpool of styles and genres that fit into the ambient/drone territory. Similarly, "Megalith", on the other hand, is a broken artillery of kicks and sporadic jungle breaks, a gorgeous pile of stop-start bass and drums that keep darting in and out from all corners. Ever thought what 3D music might sound like? This goes pretty damn near. Warmly recommended.
