Belief System is a new album on the Fabric-run label Houndstooth from Special Request, the project that sees Paul Woolford continue to defy expectations. Belief System comprises 23 tracks recorded over the course of three years, using sounds from Woolford's archives that date all the way back to 1993. The album presents a new style for the producer with vast layers of atmospherics, unhinged modular work, and contact microphone recordings, as well as the introduction of stark soundtrack pieces. The album follows the sold-out six-track EP Stairfoot Lane Bunker (HTH 073EP) which was made up of tracks taken from his FabricLive 91 mix CD (FABRIC 182CD), both released earlier in 2017. Resident Advisor, WIRE Magazine, DJ Mag, and Mixmag all listed Soul Music (HTH 012CD/LP) on their 2013 "Albums of the Year" lists. Paul Woolford is a regular DJ in Ibiza and the festival circuit around the world. He has released albums and EPs on Houndstooth, XL Recordings, and Running Back.
