Paul Woolford presents Bobby Peru - Erotic Discourse

Why this is currently one of the biggest minimal anthems of the moment, being hailed by everyone from Francois Kevorkian to Ivan Smagghe to Richie Hawtin, is sort of lost on me at the moment. There is no hook, build up, or even a sense of dynamics throughout Woolford’s “Erotic Discourse,” it’s basically a flimsy sounding drum track with some dry clanging sounds and steady set of mildly wet toms that alternate from the left to the right speaker. Who needs an art-house version of Rotterdam Termination Source’s “Poing” without any of the poings? Next.
