FACT mix 223 is a selection by Dramatic Records, inspired by The Endless House.
Followers of oddball synth music and tall stories will doubtless already be familiar with the Endless House Foundation, thanks to various tracks, articles and blogposts appearing online in recent months and the physical release of Endless House archive pack: 05/1973, a beautifully packaged CD compilation from Dramatic Records.

EHF's FACT mix aims to capture the spirit of the Endless House, its hedonistic heights and its cash-hemorrhaging depths alike – in the words of Walter Schnaffs, its “low frequency oscillation between heaven and hell”. From the kosmische drift of Emeralds and Tangerine Dream to the punchy minimal wave of Sudeten Creche and Deux, via the louche orch-pop of Serge Gainsbourg and the harrowing ambience of The Caretaker, FACT mix 223 is, fundamentally, a celebration of electronic music at its most emotivie and idiosyncratic.
