with Special Request AKA Paul Woolford chat and Guest Mix

Tom presents his own unique blend of music with genuine passion and knowledge, unlike anything anywhere else in radio. This week he's joined by Special Request AKA Paul Woolford.

Tom is joined by Paul Woolford AKA Special Request, which is the Leeds-based producer’s darker, hardcore and breaks-inspired alias. Known for his tracks such as Soundboy Killer, Lockjaw, and his VIP version of Tessela’s Hackney Parrot, Special Request has carved out a driving and infectious sound that has stayed true to the origins of British underground music whilst paving the way for many new artists at the same time. Woolford’s latest release was Vortex, out at the end of April on London clubbing institution Fabric’s record label Houndstooth.
