Wojmann is a mysterious and emerging French electronic music producer and electronic music artist with a rather unique and interesting back story: Born somewhere in Southern France during the late 20th century, the emerging French artist suffered from a severe case case of amnesia, a case that has essentially erased his past. Found in front of a small Provence town’s public pool last April, the only memories that Wojmann seems to have is a haunting rhythm in his head that he tries to transcribe to music.
Acclaimed French electronic label Sinners released the mysterious French producer’s debut EP Vars earlier this year. Building upon a growing profile in the electronic music scene, Wojmann has quickly followed up with the OT EP. The EP’s A-side single, title track “OT” is an expansive and cinematic take on deep house centered around layers of shimmering and arpeggiated synths, an insistent motorik groove and tweeter and woofer rocking beats. Sonically the song — to my ears at least — reminds me of bit of Tour de France and Computerworld-era Kraftwerk.
