Houndstood represents the Offshoot of Fabric Records based in London, Uk, and launched in 2012. Houndstooth was founded by the team behind London clubbing Institution Fabric.
The imprint will be helmed by Electronic Explorations curator Rob Booth, who in an interview said of the label, "Houndstooth is completely an artist-led endeavour, so the focus of what we’re doing will be squarely on them and their output." In other words, Houndstooth will be issuing singles, EPs, and LPs, not mixes.
Houndstooth's first release came in 2012 from Berlin's Call Super (a producer who has appeared in our Downloads section a couple of times over the years), which will be followed by records from Δkkord, House of Black Lanterns (the new project from King Cannibal), Al Tourettes, and _Unsubscribe_. While Call Super's The Present Tense EP does not have an official release date, tracklist, or artwork yet, Houndstooth did release a nifty promo video of Fabric's logo morphing into its own, which you can watch below.
Other artists confirmed for release on the label next year include House of Black Lanterns, Unsubscribe, Akkord and Al Tourettes.
