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!

Woob – Substrate Aluminium – Vol.2 features uncut original unreleased Wuub track

woob SAVinyl fans rejoice! as hot on the heals of the just announced Lost 1194 Located Edition we now have a follow up to the sold out Substrate Aluminium Vol.1

SA Vol.2 aka Woob 9410 is a celebration of 20 years since Woob 1194, specifically I have uncovered – from the original studio DAT master recording – the full near uncut 14 minute mix of Wuub !

This full length version of the original Woob 1194 recording including the missing first 4 minutes or so has not been heard by anyone (until recently) since the album was compiled back in 1994. The track was the only one to be edited down for the album on the then very slow and new Pro-tools. On this release you are getting the whole thing at 33 rpm on one side of Acetate.

For the flip-side a recording originating from the re-birth of woob in 2010 – the 64k Edition of 85-bit is a rare track having previously only featured on the ‘Return to the City’ keycard. One of my favourite tracks, it has been remastered specifically for this release.

The new volume also includes a Bandcamp link to an exclusive 24-bit Flac or digital recordings of the vinyl available only for those who own the acetate – Plus signed and stickered sleeve  including the all new SA triangular aluminium/chrome sticker! 10 only – exclusively at Woob HQ.
