Boomkat Product Review:
Hyperactive, hardcore dance music from Pittsburgh's W00dy, rushing at 160bpm in 4 fibrillating blends of footwork, jungle, gabber and styles as-yet-unnamed.
Packing as much into each fractious bar as possible, W00dy treads the finest line between chaos and control in a breathless volley of pointillist stutter and rhythmic attack that recalls early Venetian Snares as much as DJ Nate or Nicholas Collins jamming with Rian Treanor.
Depending on your tolerance for such stuff, ‘My Diary’ will either send listeners over the edge into delirium or running out of the room. Between the tussling kick drums, seething neuro-D&B licks and gibber-jawed vocal edits of ‘Can’t Resist It’, the hyper-ventilating R&B chops of ‘Like What U Do’, and the speedy jungle-jack-crunk of ‘We All Want The Same Thing’, W00dy surely lives up to a self-defined aesthetic “attempting to bring absurdity 2 the dance floor”, and in a way that’s bound to resonate from her hard-working home city with ravers across the globe.
