Special Request is another alias of Paul Woolford, whose Stolen release on Hotflush Recordings was a personal highlight of 2011. This new guise is heavily inspired by pirate radio, and the first two white label releases take a twisted approach to house, techno and breakbeat. 'Lolitia' is a standout warehouse techno stomper, and EP 2 features a killer remix from Kassem Mosse and Mix Mup.

His most recent outing sees a warped rework of Daniel Avery's 'Taste' released on Erol Alkan's Phantasy Sound label. Its infectious rolling break and jittery metallic stabs make it a sure-fire head nodder. As per the previous releases it's strictly limited, but unfortunately doesn't include the original. There's sure to be lots more music from Woolford in the coming months, so keep your eyes peeled for his DJ sets and a forthcoming original named 'Mindwash' from Special Request.
