El alma de la radio pirata.

Paul Woolford, una figura clásica y veterana dentro del espectro más convencional de la música de Club contemporánea, presentó su proyecto Special Request en 2012, lanzando de manera autónoma varios 12″ donde daba rienda suelta a toda su pasión por las emanaciones vintage de la reciente historia sonora del Reino Unido, como el Hardcore, el Jungle o esencialmente todo el espectro que encontraríamos en la edad dorada de las radios piratas. En una entrevista con FACT, el productor, habló largo y tendido sobre la influencia de estas plataformas en su carisma como artista:

“The attractive thing about pirate radio is that it sits outside of convention, so there are no rules as such, and this is a huge part of why this project exists, so even though there are familiar themes involved on these releases, the stark contrasts make the differences”.

“In terms of pirate radio itself, the internet has changed the nature of it, but there was a time when it was pure community service. I stumbled across it purely by accident, from moving the tuning dial across the airwaves and the contrast between what was on commercial radio and what was being broadcast from PCR in Bradford or Energy, or Dream FM in Leeds was astronomical. There’s been a guy that’s basically always been involved around this part of the North, a guy called Shock, and he was involved all those years and continues to be these days with Radio Frequency FM, which I’ve been listening to of late. How many more unsung heroes must there be from across the years that have dedicated their lives to this?”

“Soul Music”, de título muy apropiado, será el álbum largo debut del proyecto, creado según Woolford: “almost exclusively from vintage hardware and boosted by industrial-strength EQ and an FM transmitter”. El material llegará en dos tandas: primero el 8 de Octubre con una versión en formato triple LP con las originales, mientras que el 21 de Octubre se lanzará un doble CD que incluirá material extra, como remixes para “Hackney Parrot” de Tessela o el “Ride” de Lana del Rey, además de re-interpretaciones de Hieroglyphic Being, Lee Gamble, Anthony Naples o Anthony ‘Shake’ Shakir.
