TESSELA – HACKNEY PARROT (SPECIAL REQUEST VIP)
OK, so I’ve been searching for something to post from the soon come album Soul Music by Special Request, the pirate radio inspired pseudonym of Paul Woolford. But just can’t. This gully fucker however, will be on disc 2 of that album which also features his remix of Lana Del Ray’s ‘Ride’ as well as reworkings of his own stuff by peeps like Lee Gamble, Antony ‘Shake’ Shakir and Kassem Mosse.
I can’t even begin to explain how much I love this stuff – a deconstruction of old rave, hardcore and more. Far from retro though, his tracks are firmly steeped in the now and cement Woolford’s place as a producer of real quality with the ability to successfully turn his hands to any style. Sod it, here’s the Hardcore EP from a couple of months ago too. Massive.
The Soul Music 3xLP set is out on Monday (Oct 7) while it’s digital brother will be available on Oct 21 on Fabric’s in-house Houndstooth label.
