Biography

Woob is the stage name of the British and musician Paul Frankland. He first came to the attention of the musical community after releasing an album on T:me Recordings’ new downtempo label em:t records with the catalogue number 1194, which many regard as a milestone ambient release.

Following the success of his first album, which was re-released in the USA by Instinct Records, Woob contributed more tracks to em:t compilations and the trance label Flying Rhino Records. In late 1995, he released a second album on em:t, 4495, which garnered further praise. Both of the two first Woob albums are still highly regarded and sought after today by ambient music collectors.

In a recent revival of the em:t spirit, Woob has remastered 1194 as a digital download as well as releasing brand new material online - including a third full-length album, Repurpose. Up-to-date information is available on www.woob.info and http://season9.wordpress.com/.

His side projects include Journeyman (with Colin Waterton) on Ntone and more recently Max & Harvey (with Mark Butt) on Ninja Tune.

    I like the new album. Its a pretty cool different mix, slightly, of the original 1194... kind of like a re-work I did of one of my tracks. I like it. Not "original" but pretty creative and LUCKY in the fact it is rendered from old mixes. Nice.

    The artist wiki had bugged me for quite a while, so I just had to go and polish it. Now what we need is an actual photo of him.
