Flash Atkins Juno Review

Juno

“Paper Recordings chief Flash Atkins is a friendly sort of chap, and in recent times has spent has evenings locked in the studio with some of the label’s lesser-known names. Here, he delivers the fruit of those labours: a collaborative EP featuring a trio of new cuts. “Wilco”, with 2 Billion Beats, begins as a chunky, low-slung, disco-influenced house number, before morphing into a Moroder-ish chunk of electronic disco madness. CP hook-up “Malawi Chant” (also available in stripped-back Dub form) is a breezy afrobeat affair – all undulating rhythms, darting organs and African chants. Finally, “Calieo Square”, with Havana Candy, is an atmosphere, picturesque slither of melodic nu-disco.”

Flash Atkins – Collaborations # 1

Flash Atkins, hero to some but a waste of taxpayers money to most. But between drinking, smoking, drugging and drinking again he has found time to get in the studio with some fellow producers from the Paper stable.

He goes head to head with young bucks and 80s house merchants 2 Billion Beats in a tribute to legendary guitarist, Wilco Johnson. Starting with a sampled Dr Feelgood bass it builds up with acid tweeks and arps before a digital pad takes it to the drop. It’s then that the NRG takes off in a 70s pub rock / Giorgio Moroder / house hybrid.

Next up Flash enlists Hebden Bridge local hero, DJ and promoter CP (known to his Mum as Chris Price). It kicks off with a group of men singing on their way to work that was recorded by Flash in Malawi (true story). For the track they have enlisted the cream of Yorkshire’s musicians with live keys, trumpet, percussion and bass for a soulful afro house sound. When the pads come in the second half it takes off!

The dub keeps the bones of the track but adds electronics for an arpeggiated deep house mix with enough grunt to satisfy the most heads down floors. It ebbs and flows as synths and reverbs filter in and out and a piano give it a techno hook.

Finally Flash hooks up with Havana Candy (who has recently been seen on Tusk Wax as Causa) for Calieo Square. This is a deeper and dreamier affair that sounds like the Wamdue Kids in their heyday. Shimmering percussion, synth washes, analogue keys and arps weave a deep house soundscape for heads and feet alike.

Nuno Cacho – Wilco is a genius track! Malawi Is really a fusion between New Orleans, Angola and Phily’s 90 House? Brilliant! Ok on the Dub put a little beat more of Spirituals… Calieo Square, is so refreshing… Reminds me the after hours on boat at the Douro River playing the Paper’s vinyl promos on the 90’s.

Murray Richardson – I like the malawi chant so i do so i do

Paper Vision Films

 

In the 70s and 80s Norway was known for oil, reindeer, Vikings and the Northern Lights. On the radio all you could hear was a mixture of local folk and used-up pop imported on the cheap as the country slid in to a Eurovision stupor.

That was until a group of teenage outsiders in Tromsø decided they had had enough. With only month old imported NMEs for company they set up a radio station, made synthesizers, threw parties and started to make music the like of which never had been heard before.

Word spread to other Norwegian towns and cities as like-minded kids recognised the call to arms.

Oslo had its airwaves and clubs infiltrated by a disaffected youth hungry to spread the word, drawing like-minded souls to the pulse. In Bergen a bunch of teenage friends started Tellé Records that captured the new sound and all they could do was hold on tight as the town became hottest scene on the planet. But on the eve of their breakthrough hit, the 23 year-old prodigy in the centre of the storm was taken ill with a fatal heart condition and died.

Out of the ashes of tragedy a new generation knew their time had come.

The rest of the world would soon catch up.
