Initially, the name Intimacy sprang from Woolford's desire to create an outlet for all the different kinds of music he wanted to make - something that could accurately represent what he's all about. But being such a music fiend, he was tempted to expand the remit to release other unsigned records by artists that he digs. "It's kind of opened up a bit," he explained. "There are all these great records and my enthusiasm kind of got the better of me. So I'm signing other things as well, but I'm only going to release music that I fuckin' love."
The Intimacy artwork is going to be pretty special, too. With a blank outside sleeve, when you delve inside to grab the record, you'll see designer and former Output Records head Trevor Jackson's detailed ménage a trois illustration, rather rude, but hidden away. "Although what he's done is quite a gratuitous image, it's not gonna be stuck in your face. Again that goes back to the intimacy thing. You need to search it out," said Paul.
The man behind the massive 'Erotic Discourse' track has plenty of other plans afoot. "Next up is something forthcoming from Jonas Kopp. I've done the third release and I've been working on a load of material, which picks up where 'Erotic Discourse' left off really, because it's about time I did that." With a remix of Spektrum's 'Kinda New' also out there and a smattering of summer festival dates, it's time to get acquainted with Paul Woolford.
