“This week’s FACT mix comes from Houndstooth duo Akkord.
Originally designed as an anonymous project – though Akkord’s identity was eventually revealed as Apollo-associated producers Synkro and Indigo – Akkord introduced themselves with a brace of self-released 12?s in 2012. In truth, it felt like the group hadn’t found their identity at that point: those singles took cues from some of the underground’s most hyped acts (James Blake, Burial, Instra:mental) but although the surgical approach Akkord took to incorporating those acts’ characteristics was impressive, it didn’t exactly feel new – especially when presented anon.”
