Hound Scales


Fifth Wall Records

Released: 7th October 2013 | 4 track techno ep

Femen is the second EP from Hound Scales on Fifth Wall, the Brooklyn imprint he runs with Divvorce. A dedication to the powerful women that have sculpted his life, the release sees the artist setting out to create the story of their impact on him by distilling these and other influences into a techno format.

The result is two originals blending Amen-style jungle rhythms with collapsed industrial squeals, each with its own sense of beauty clawing upwards towards the surface.

On the remix front, Japanese producer and 10 Label head honcho Yuji Kondo delivers an incredibly complex, layered interpretation of A Clique of Tough Women, while Mira and Opal Tapes affiliate Bleaching Agent pits the elegiac chords of the original Throated against a repeated, mangled vocal motif, imbuing the remix with nostalgia while remaining an effective dancefloor instrument.

Support includes Marcel Dettmann, Tommy Four Seven, Eomac, Perc, AnD, Forward Strategy Group, Breach, Shadow Dancer, and Sinden.
