In February of 2016 Harmonious Discord celebrated it’s 15-year anniversary. From a gang of scrappy young adults pressing vinyl with their collective tip money to a label known for pushing the boundaries of house and techno music with releases from some of the most highly acclaimed musicians in the electronic landscape. 2016 will bring a string of new projects for the label as they embark on even more journey’s to bring the sound of the discordian underground to the masses.

This release features Austin, Texas native Jeff Scroggin with three superb moving techno compositions. Deep Knows is warehouse jam with ample funk pressure. Complex beds of percussion and synth stabs dance together to create a highly musical techno selection. Vancouver based industry powerhouse Jay Tripwire makes his debut on Harmonious Discord after a successful 2016 album called 8 channels. Jay applies his years of savage noises to the rework and takes the old-school elements strait into the realm of the outer world. Next up is One Note Acid, a seemingly simple construction with surprising variations that take the simple cadence into more complex territory. The progressive movement builds into a manage of carefully placed synthetic elements and drives towards darker moods as the piece evolves. Denied Music label boss Daniel Allen premieres on Harmonious Discord as well with his Miami deep shade version of Jeff’s original. There is plenty of high resonance automation to ensure that the build drives the dance floor insane just until the music spirals into a disorienting pitch drop. Jeff rounds us out with New Dubbs, a heady percussive driven and deep pulsating concoction complete with dub influences. You can expect to see more of Jeff on the label throughout the next couple years and hope you are as excited about this collection as we are.
