The Point Of Contact LP (Limited Double Gatefold Vinyl)

2nd record includes scratch tool made from samples and stems used on the album.

“The best DJ in the World… effortless creativity!” says Hudson Mohawke, “Genius” says DJ Qbert, one of Mixmaster Mike's
(Beastie Boys) favourite DJs. DJ Woody aka Lee Woodvine fits the criteria for that clichéd term 'Your favourite DJ's favourite DJ'.
Following his collaborative 'BocaWoody' EP with Bristol's Boca 45, October 2016 saw the release of the debut solo album from
the Lancashire (UK) born World Champion turntablist.
'The Point Of Contact' is hand crafted electronic music born from a collection of disparate dusty vinyl samples. Recruiting a
cast of Manchester's finest musicians including Christian Madden (The Earlies), Carl Sharrocks (808 State), Nick Blacka (GoGo
Penguin) and Matthew Halsall for recording sessions, the results were returned to vinyl to be re-imagined by the hands of one
of the Worlds most accomplished scratch DJs.
The process alone makes the music irrefutably routed in hip hop, however the album takes in influences ranging from jazz-rock,
britcore rap, psychedelia and electronica with Woody jokingly referring to it as 'Prog-Hop'. In contrast to many DJ records
centred around abstract, comedy or battle cut-ups, this record draws on real life experience and introspection to inject an
honesty and soul to the work.
"It's about the transient nature of our own perceptions and what that brings to our experience” - Woody
Whilst the textured instrumentation sets the tone throughout the album, select spoken word samples serve as a narration of the
internal monologue that guides our outlook and shapes our reality, taking the listener on a voyage through inner-space.
The live set is the fruition of decades of pioneering work in legitimising the turntable as a versitile and expressive musical
instrument. The 3 piece, featuring Christian Madden on keyboards and Carl Sharrocks on drums, premiered at the DMC World
Championships at the 02 Forum in London to a rapturous response. This was followed by a series of key performances and
interviews in LA for DJCity, Serato and BPM Supreme.
