Flash Atkins – Make Your Move

‘Make Your Move

(b/w Atjazz and Ashley Beedle Rmxs)

Paper Recordings

PAPD11

The Superhero past his prime, Flash Atkins is back with a timeless release of deep slow burning soul that shows off his chops as a producer and is backed with some heavyweight mixes to boot.  Featuring Crazy P’s Danielle Moore at her sultry best, the original has live bass, drums, guitar, horns and guitar plus Rhodes and electronics all wrapped up in a killer 90BPM 4/4 groove.

Atjazz pitches things up for some classic deep house in his own inimitable style, laying down an afro groove, shuffling percussion, gorgeous pads and keys that taunt and tease before the bass hits.  He then brings out the heart and soul of the song before taking out the bass and stripping it back down to create a hypnotic middle section reminiscent of Global Underground’s The Way.  The bass and keys then re-emerge for the soulful end….ahhhhh.

Ashley Beedle, a man who’s had his sticky paws in some of the best dance music of the past twenty years takes the track in a psychedelic rock direction.  He gives it a heavyweight drum groove and showcases Danielle’s vocals, using plenty of the original parts but adding some heavily effected guitars and percussion to superb effect.

The Reprise strips the original mix of all its beats and let’s Danielle’s vocals soar over the Rhodes; and finally Atjazz and Ashley Beedle’s dubs are included for those allergic to vocals!

Overall a release of incredibly high quality that sees Flash Akins coming of age.

PAPERVINYL03 available now in the Paper Shop

Crazy P
Smoovin’ Groovin’ (Ray Mang’s Dumpy Re-Rub)
Star War (Greg Wilson Edit)

Crazy P’s releases with Paper Recordings in the late nineties/early noughties
are for many some of best records released by both the act and the label.
Now in 2010 Paper have handed over the tracks from A Nice Hot Bath With to
some of their favourite producers (Yam Who, Faze Action, PBR Streetgang,
Flash Atkins, Rune Lindbaek and Brennan Green) and have created the
marvellous ‘A Nice Hot Edit With’ due out next year to follow the re-release
of the re-mastered orginal in November.

The first vinyl sampler for the album contains two cuts, the first of which is
Greg Wilson’s epic thirteen minute edit of ‘Star war’. Wilson needs little
introduction; as one of the UK’s true DJ heroes he started his career back
in 1975 and was a pivotal force in breaking electronic and post disco music
to clubland through his residencies at everywhere from the Wigan Pier to the
Hacienda. For his reworking of ‘Star war’ he turns in a groove laden slice of
deep disco that drips with class from every pore and even after thirteen
minutes leaves you wishing for more!

The flip side of the release sees the wonderful Ray Mang whose DFA release
earlier this year was a huge success. Here he delivers his ‘Dumpy re-rub’ a
chunky, dark edged piece of floorfilling house with an electro/disco twist;
simple, hypnotic and brilliant.

The Revenge – Both of these mixes are ace…full support

Soul Clap (Wolf & Lamb) – ray mang for us! nice laid down disco vibation.

Horse Meat Disco – Great to see Paper back! Both are great …!!

Richard Dorfmeister – NICE!!

Chris Dukenfield – Nicely crafted re-do’s here Greg’s version tips the scales, probably on account of the associated half ton of defunct hardware

Trus’ Me – Feeling the Greg Wilson Edit

Diskjokke – Thanks for reminding me of that fantastic album, listened to it continously in 1998 and will put it back in my bag now. nice remixes, liked Ray Mangs the most.

Eric Duncan (Rub N Tug) – Sounds great!!

PAPERecordings is back from it’s summer hols with a release that breaks the template from dapper gent and Balearic legend Justin Robertson.  Justin is one of acid house’s true pioneers, constantly evolving and pushing new sounds using his vast armoury of music that ranges from reggae to synth pop to techno to house and rock.

We Could Be is his second outing on the relaunched PAPERecordings and it’s a belter.  The original is warped 4/4 business with a nagging slap bass riding the sub.  There is all sorts of analogue synth action and choppy edits to give it unexpected drops and fills resulting in big floor energy.

Next up Justin’s own remix takes live drums and creates something akin to oldskool techno played by a band.  The detroit bass dominates with a killer groove and plenty of fills to keep it rolling.

Boozer, drugger and sound manipulator Flash Atkins takes his remix down the electro pop route with floating keys, synth washes and plenty of delays.  The middle section goes in to a heads down percussion session before breaking into an arpeggiatored ending for the big finish…..mahem ensues!

Ashley Casselle and Mark O’Brian have taken the parts of the original down a deep techno route that keeps it tight.  They work the groove for maximum impact but with plenty going on under the hood.

Finally there is the bonus Magikal 100 that wears Justin’s 80s influences well and truly on it’s sleeve.  With a dropped down BPM it sounds like woozy Japan at a comedown party after a particularly heavy night…and that’s got to be a good thing!
