Its minimal description entails just two lines:

“Offworld started off with the question: ‘What if Jam & Lewis signed to Metroplex?'”

Jam and Lewis are an r&b production duo, while Metroplex is the label founded by techno legend Model 500 aka Juan Atkins.

Offworld marks the third of four LPs Woolford is releasing in 2019, following techno face melter Vortex – one of our favourite dance records in May, and his shimmering synth-filled archival collection Bedroom Tapes – one of our favourite dance records in June.
