about

wh0wh0 is a solo moniker of the drummer Jacek Prościński. It’s his unique experiment aimed at taking on the intensity and precision of electronic music. To face it live, he uses a self-made electro-acoustic drum kit. It is the fulfilment of a deeply rooted dream to create and perform independently as a solo drummer. Channelling the musician’s curiosity and testing his ability. Exceeding limitations imposed by traditional drumming. Exploring the possibilities of both the instrument and the artist.
Jacek Prościński has been an active musician for years – co-creating LLovage together with Olo Walicki, Mu with Tymon Tymański as well as the LASY and Hałvva duos. He plays in Tobiasz Biliński’s band Perfect Son and was a member of the now-defunct delay_ok. Most importantly, since 2019 he has been intensively developing his solo project wh0wh0, perfecting his individual drumming style.
The record features 8 tracks, all being the result of meticulous exploration and experimentation that show off a wide spectrum of music, not only electronic. The tunes may remind you of creations of different artists – at one moment they sound euphoric like Hudson Mohawke or TNGHT, only to surprise you with calm repetitive passages a bit later, bringing to mind the works of Steve Reich. Influences range from footwork, trap, hip-hop, through techno, ambient and math rock, to electronic deconstruction and avant-garde. This album contains a broad range of structures – from abstract to almost song-like.
The fully-solo performance required a deep dive into each track - its sound, structure and composition. It resulted in their balanced proportions, tasteful sample and effect selection as well as mad electronic beats (or even lack thereof). Each track was played entirely on electro-acoustic drums. All the samples, harmonic and percussion sounds were assigned to different sections of the instrument. This allowed creating separate sequences depending on where the particular acoustic drum was hit – the center, edge or rim. At the same time, it required a completely unique style of playing.
For this reason, album production demanded an unusual and tailor-made technical method of recording. The sounds crafted by Jacek were later processed by Marcin Szulc (working under his Dalekie moniker) who gave them even more depth and sometimes a different, interesting direction. This led to a fully ‘DIY-approach’ to the whole process.
The entire album was recorded ‘garage style’ in wh0wh0's rehearsing room, mixed and produced in Marcin's home studio. The record cover and this booklet were printed in-house and consist of Jacek's drawings. Moreover, the first 30 vinyl copies feature blank labels, which were doodled on by the musician himself!
