Dublin live electronic/D’n’B duo WOB! should be a familiar name to you by now. Having spent the best part of last year blowing up on the live and festival circuits, with their powerhouse blend of breakneck live instrumentation and furious, syncopated sequencing, Stephen (synths) and Djollie (drums) are making exceptionally infectious body-music that displays a dexterous range of styles, executed with confidence and sheer passion.
We’re pleased to be able to exclusively host their debut MOVE! EP, which you can stream below in all its eclectic glory. Featuring soaring vocals, tight percussion, fluid electronics, accomplished guests and dangerously catchy melodies, MOVE! comes just in time to start soundtracking the outdoor sessions over the course of five varying tracks. An essential release, familiarise yourself with WOB! and get set to MOVE!
“The project was crafted through an hybrid approach to music production, experimentally combining the live performance of a band with the techniques of electronic music producers. The band‘s characteristic drum and synth sound is augmented by guest vocalists Sheena Styles (on title track, MOVE!), Floor Staff’s Anthony Donnelly (on Cosmos), as well as live guitar wizardry from Paul O‘ Hare. All of this raw material was then produced by the band with the help of mixing engineer Sean Hurley of Area 94, resulting in an intense, danceable mess.”
WOB! are happy to announce a collaboration with their dear friend and brother in art, Jerry Fish, in this year’s ‘Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow’. In addition to this WOB! will perform an intimate Sambass set (eclectic mix of Brazilian Samba, Bossa Nova and Drum&Bass) at Electric Picnic on Sunday, in a secret location. You can catch them sooner though, and tickets for the upcoming EP launch show can be found here. Unmissable.
