Special Request returns to Houndstooth with monolithic album ‘Belief System’


Paul Woolford’s Special Request returns to Houndstooth with the monolithic ‘Belief System’ in October.

The new album comprises of 23 tracks recorded over the last 3 years and utilising source material from Paul’s tape archives going back to 1993 and brings a new way of producing for Wooly.

The label says this of the album “Vast layers of atmospherics, unhinged modular work, contact microphone recordings of icebergs cracking, microtonal elements, and the introduction of stark soundtrack pieces borne out of Woolford’s work in sound design combine with the trademark heavyweight production style of Special Request to deliver a formidable new body of work” Whatever that means?

Check out the first track and see if you can work it, or just enjoy it – like we’ve done and the get excited for the 13th October when the album is released on 4 x gatefold vinyl / Double CD and Streaming networks.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
