Paper Cuts # 4

Paper Cuts Exclusives

It’s been 18 months since the last Paper Cuts ‘best of’ and in that time there have been some absolute beauties by artists new and old from all over the world.

There is the deep NZ garage of Maxx Mortimer’s Got Some Funk, choice cuts from the Project Sound compilation by Fingerman and Mr Tea plus Paper stalwarts 2 Billion Beats, Flash Atkins, Daco and Kimo.

Our 200th release was marked with Crazy P(enis) returning to the label along with Steve Cobby, our good friends in Norway represent with Vinny Villbass, Rave-enka, Leca, Diskobeistet and De Fantastiske To. DJ Spinna delivers a masterclass in remixing on the Soundersons’ Can’t Get Enough and we have our first artist from Venezuela, Vainc who goes proper deep.

Don’t forget the exclusives, a brand new track by Bachgenaur (formerly Goldboy) that is a nod back to the early days and the Vinny Villbass’ instrumental remix of Birkelunden.

PAPER CUTS # 4 ON JUNO

2 Billion Beats – Remix EP feat. Leon Sweet, Richard Seaborne & Magnus International

Tom and Col have dusted off their high tops and asked the Paper Allstars to give their favourite album track a rub-down.

Richard Seaborne went for Papa and has kept some 80s flava while stripping things back to the raw groove as only he can. There’s a boogie house bass, a rock sold kick, shaky hats and GizMo adding some warped vocals. Oh, and did I mention the acid?

Leon Sweet returns to the fold and it’s good to have him back on Slow Down. Clipped tech-house drums and hypnotic synths burble along, all held down by a kick that carries some serious weight. Using the chiming and vocals from the original, the track builds to a crescendo that will melt dance floors.

Finally Norway’s finest, Magnus International goes breakbeat with a nod to the glory days of rave as he uses plenty of the original track to weave it’s weave it’s 5am magic.
