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 – Tokyo Substrate Paradox – Out Today

UPDATED Out Now! [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!

overrun-cover-red

Now live thanks to everyone for your support.

UPDATING (UK TIME)

3:09 Welcome to the Overrun_exe Launch Day! I’ll keep updating this post throughout the day with details on all the physical editions and merch. Above the album artwork finally reveals what Jessica actually looks like albeit in a manner of being possessed by ancient 8-bit code. Also if you missed them – here’s the first and third tracks off the album.

5:34 Final track has finished uploading! Album is almost ready to go. Although this is not a Time Limited release this version of the album will only be available for 101 days and include a bonus track and alternative artwork.

5:39 New Teeeeees!

teeez

5:50 Based on the alt. coverart these Tees feature the cat. number hidden in the print and will only be available for a limited time. These are a merch. only item and not part of a special edition and will be available to order next week.

5:55 This backstory inspired two one off editions to be revealed later today.

After escaping the ‘Midnight Arcade’ the group make it back to their house. On checking Jessica’s room for any signs she may have returned after they were separated, a loud clicking noise coming from the corner grabs their attention.

A cassette machine in record has reached the end of side A and has failed to stop creating a rhythmical tick. By the unit an empty cassette box spine reads ‘Remember Me’ the track listing shows only a bloodstained kiss. To the left a record spins and crackles on its final groove, there is a strange symbol where the label should be, below it handwritten letters spell out: CORTEX.

6:42 New format…

6:47 NIGHT DRIVE !

7:39 Beware the…

cortex

This is not a Special Edition, Signed Edition or Limited Edition this is… The Cortex.

Glimpsed briefly before its disappearance by only a handful of Arcadia Point residents, the Cortex is shrouded in mystery. All that is known is that there is a strange symbol where the label should be, below it handwritten letters spell out: CORTEX. Although no one has ever seen the reverse side legend has it there is a formula or spell of some kind of antidote inked by a madman. Others suggest there is a piece of music so powerful it can transform the human body into another form. Whatever the case if this item ever finds itself into our possession you will find it here.

7:43 There’s only one Cortex and it will be available at WoobHQ later this month.

7:47 OK only one left to go… and it’s probably the best Woob One -off edition ever  – unfortunately however there is a technical issue with the track I uploaded earlier and I have to go and fix it so will be back at 9pm (UK) for reveal and launch:-0

9:00 Track sorted… uploading now looks like 9:30-10pm launch though

9:39 should be 10!
