13. Hound Scales
At the end of 2012, Hound Scales, AKA Nico Jacobsen, moved from San Francisco to Brooklyn to co-found Fifth Wall records with Divvorce. Their first release was Hound Scales' Case (Nabis) EP. His second Fifth Wall EP, Femen, dropped in September and was dedicated to the powerful women that shaped his life. His brutal approach to warehouse techno, which he describes as "junta rave", has kept him on our fickle radar all year long, and it's unlikely he will drop off in 2014.
