9/10 Rick Sanchez 16th September 2013
Paul Woolford has done it again. After producing one of the most played songs this summer in Ibiza on Scuba's Hotflush label in "untitled" (available on vinyl now at normanrecords), Woolford returns to his Special Request moniker and gives 12 tracks of "false memories" and pirate radio nostalgia. However this isn't a retro album, this is hardcore/jungle circa 2013. Hard hitting amen breaks, samples, and bpm changes throughout the album make it a dynamic listening experience although way to the piano closer "Descent". Tracks like "Cold-blooded" and Body Armor" show the influence Woolford has had from the new-generation of bass producers particularly Hessle Audio and album cuts have been played out by everyone from Ben UFO, Joy Orbison, Boddika, and more. The VIP version of Tessela Hackney Parrot (available on digi and CD) was the most played track at Outlook 2013 with everyone sneaking it into their DJ sets. It has been featured on countless Radio 1 shows in the past weeks. Soul Music is an incredible achievement, and on pressed on 6 sides of 180g. Vinyl, it’s a must have purchase. Album of the year contender. Timeless. 9.5/10
