Above: Those grooves actually play Paradox III – that’s no mock up! The extra hole is a drive hole in the label area, used for engaging a special pin that prevents the disc from slipping on the turntable during the recording process.
Having achieved a great tone earlier this year with a one off Vinyl cut and the saturated sounds of The Six Hundred I still felt there was more avenues to explore and after receiving various emails from frustrated listeners who missed out on that ‘Ultra Edition’ Vinyl a new series was born.
Substrate Aluminum (named after the core or substrate that is the foundation of the record) is the vinyl partner to ‘The 600′ but whilst those warm saturated sounds could be compared to the feeling of an old comfy sofa after a hard days work, Substrate Aluminum is like sound dipped in a vat of the most expensive, melted Swiss chocolate. It has a richness and warmth that is the perfect antidote to a world filled with speakers spewing out stinging insect like overcompressed treble and nothing else – a small victory in the battle against the Loudness War.
woobhq.com is the new Woob store home to an exclusive selection of Woob Artifacts, including the new vinyl series – ‘Substrate Aluminium’ + Clothing, Prints, Special Edition CD’s & more. All profits will go towards creating new Woob music so spread the word + help keep the Wuub flowing LINK

Ahead of the imminent shipping forecast for physical editions of ULTRASCOPE I thought I better shed some light on the ‘Time Paradox’ Hidden DLC. It sounds like it may be a couple of extra bonus tracks but it is infact a fulll digital/bandcamp release: 52 minutes and 7 tracks long its an alternate timeline take on the main album. 7 of the 8 tracks are revisited with some subtle and not so subtle changes. So when you open your CD package / T-shirt /Artifact take note of that small inconspicuous piece of copy paper with your unique Time Paradox code on it – don’t throw it away by mistake!

Last Friday the 13th a new Woob album ULTRASCOPE launched with a live event post. A massive thanks to everyone that got involved and although I managed to get the album out with just a minute to spare (literally) it did mean I missed out joining in on the comments as much as i would have liked. However I have now read through them all and picked three (from whilst the event was happening) of my faves to get the Woob Chrome Goody bag!
Will -”….Keith the Penguin”
Mward2011 -.”…post office”
Gerrit/Alice – “….Woob or Weekend” / “…I’m Stuck cause he’s stuck”
Over World – Like a giant sleeping pill
