Edward A two hour long magnum opus that draws from elements of Special Request's sound. He skillfully weaves many textures, contrasting hard hitting bangers with cinematic ones, sometimes within the same track. This results in some all-time favorites, like "Make It Real" and "Brainstorm." He's got the tools and talents to one day produce an unforgettable ambient album. To create a masterpiece, one must push the limits. There is a fine line between mad and mad genius; this here is pure genius.

Billy D. Runs the gamut of nighttime electronic music, sharply murky. Favorite track: Leviathan.

E Paul lays out another monstrous release. Insane range of feels, from classic Special Request bangers to dark, brooding ambiance. Pulling out all the stops for this one. Light In The Darkest Hours is about as D&B as Special Request gets... and it makes me yearn for more! Favorite track: Light In The Darkest Hour.

about

Special Request returns to Houndstooth with the monolithic Belief System.

Comprising 23 tracks (4xLP / 2xCD / digital) recorded over the last 3 years and utilising source material from Paul Woolford’s tape archives going back to 1993 - Belief System augments the DNA of the project with a new visceral production aesthetic.

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.
