Woob – Tokyo Substrate Paradox – S-Side Remastered for Streaming Plus New Artwork

woob-tokyo-substrate-paradox

One of my personal faves the S Side from last years Tokyo Substrate Paradox now has its own release for Streaming / Digital. The tracks have been remastered to help with playlist volume levels and are now individual tracks rather than one continuous mix. There’s also some stellar new artwork from Kai Arc based on the Tokyo Run Japanese import clicker prints.

Woob joins Tangerine Dream, Hecq and others on this New Compilation Album from Grenzwellen

Grenzwellen is a radio-show in German language hosted by Ecki Stieg broadcasted on Radio Hannover. The difference between this station and others however is Ecki has an immaculate taste in music, so good in fact I was shocked when approached about including a woob track! Grenzwellen started in 1987 and can be heard every Wednesday for three hours at 9 pm CET. [Read more…]

Woob – Tokyo Substrate Paradox

This ‘Holographic Substrate’ includes five new paradox (Side S)
exclusive vinyl track – Fallen + the rest of the original Zoetrope tracks all in one place.

Since the release of the Tokyo Run album there has been a number of requests for a vinyl capture,  given the dramatic difference in sound/mastering between vinyl vs digital.

After eventually tracking down a service that used state of the art phono converters to do the transfer (thanks Christian!) I proceeded to remove (hand drawn at sample level) scores of vinyl pops (being sure to leave just enough to keep the vinyl character)..

….Then I started playing around with the captures!

Tokyo Substrate Paradox was born.

Best thought of as a kind of internal third S side that includes five new paradox tracks created from the captures.

If you missed out on the vinyl this is a great alternate way to experience it and a chance to hear that vinyl exclusive ‘Fallen’ plus the five new paradox. For those who already bought the original album the extra tracks will be available separately but the whole album will be half price for its first few weeks on sale.

No additional loudness has been added to the captures as to keep the purity of the vinyl dynamics  and experiance the larger sound (you will have to turn up your volume to compensate) There’s no physical, except a one-off that will include the two vinyl copies actually used in the capture. This will be available through woob bandcamp on release later this week.

Thanks to iloobia for the original zoetrope animation that I’ve repurposed and be sure to watch untill the end of the video to catch the crazy alien shit!
