Harmonious Discord has survived 17 years during the most turbulent times in the history of the music industry. Under the helm of Sean Anderson, also known as tech-house producer PointBender, the label has cranked out a sizable catalog of releases, mostly from Texas artists, and solidified a core audience of supporters at home and abroad. While riding that fine line between house and techno, the label has excelled at pushing definitions to the limit. The label bucks trends and stays consistent in its vision.
After a somewhat slow release year for the label in 2017, it has a stacked release schedule for 2018, including the new Vessel EP from Litex that dropped this week. For this week’s mixtape, Anderson explores some of the music of the artists of Harmonious Discord and discusses the high and lows of the label’s run.
