Special Request mixes FABRICLIVE 91 – a journey of heightened emotions, from the lush into the realm of the unhinged

Posted in News on February 9, 2017 by danimonster


As an artist, Special Request, aka Paul Woolford, has crossed a multitude of spheres spanning genres, decades and scenes. A wealth of musical influence in his childhood provided strong cultivation of his character, being born of a jazz drummer and growing up with his adoptive father’s fascinating record collection, along with an innate passion to create from his early years, paving the way for him to craft an intense musical path. Radio was a key part of his influences; as a teenager he was constantly listening, absorbing and recording sounds he found interesting, something that rapidly escalated into an obsession when he discovered pirate stations by complete accident.

Posted in News on December 1, 2016 by dk

NU-Endup EP

Posted in News on December 1, 2016 by dk


The sophomore release on the Ouïe imprint brings three more killer cuts into the universe. Made up of the production outfit NU – based in Germany but clearly well travelled and open to diverse sounds from around the globe- this EP is full of groove laden sunshine vibes.

‘Endup’ is the lead track – a swingy, afro-tinged disco outing with warm, trippy percussion and a hypnotic, joyful vocal sample sure to bring smiles to every dancefloor.

‘Cosa Mia’ slows things down a few BPM – a chugging beat and balearic vibe, enhanced by a beautiful string section that makes this a no-brainer for a sunrise / sunset session.

‘Palomita’ delivers a similar feel, but with slightly more drive to it – shifting from a mid tempo groover to a latin hip shaker with perfect aplomb. This three tracker is going to win the hearts of open-minded DJs and dancers alike
