I’m sure you know plenty about the Dead Rose Music Company. Numbers Machine are actually Karoshi who launched Woodville with Love The World. However they don’t’ want anybody to know as this project is low key, faceless and secretive. Maybe mention that it’s one of our major artists in a secretive alter ego. The Dead Rose Music Company loved the original and on his reaction said he loved it and would be able to tear it up on a remix. So we asked him and he did!
The Numbers Machine Instrumental is stunning – really beautiful piece of electronic music.. Andy Durrant – Capitol Radio

‘Slutten På Alt’ is one of the highlights from Proviant Audio’s debut album ‘Real Loves Tastes Like This!’ and now gets the remix treatment.
The album is a rich mix of disco, funk, soul and house which has seen the 18 year old Norwegian receive broad critical acclaim as part of the new generation of Scandavian artists.
The release kicks off with the original (promo only) which is a journey through disco and ending up on a killer riff that sounds like it’s been stolen from a lost classic (it hasn’t, it’s all played live).
Ralph Myerz ‘Norwegian Kiss’ turns in a broken slice of soulful tech-disco. His mix moves from a soul groove to a brilliant slow-mo breakdown before lifting back into a tight house groove.
Next up, Leftside Wobble is at the controls and an artist probably best known for his superb re-edits in recent times. For his version of ‘Slutten På Alt’ he picks up the funk and runs with it, creating a dubby disco mix with plenty of bounce and leftfield soul.
Finally Paper Recordings own Flash Atkins takes things in a deeper direction fusing the best of house, techno and disco in to a late night, bottom heavy floor filler.
Roberto Rodriguez : Absolutely loving the Ralph Myerz and Leftside Wobble mixes! Will get lots of spins!

What can we say apart from thank you for the music and your humour Kenny – one thing that sticks in the memory apart from the blinding releases was when we had just signed up your first single for Paper Recordings and you faxed through your signed off copy contract ; following the agreement another page came through the fax machine in big bold print stating – “You are now about to enter the world of Kenny Hawkes, SCREAM if you want to go faster……..” Priceless!
Rest in Peace Kenny x
