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

Daco – Rhea EP

Paper favourite, Captain Daco has been busy in his Spanish tax haven twiddling knobs and busting beats and what twiddles and beats they are!

The Uprise is another take on the arp of I Feel Love but it’s never been done so well. The familiar bass provides the backbone before it comes in at a gallop of swirling synths, rock solid kick and a call for nothing less than revolution. It’s been crushing Paper dancefloors and always achieves total mayhem.

The Galáctica Mix has all the same ingredients but takes a deeper disco route with drops and an arrangement that keeps the floor chomping at the bit.

Faith takes a different direction and it’s super deep house that is trippy and soulful in equal measures. Mikey Raphael provides the vocal and it’s hairs on the back of your neck time.

Fingerman – “Devastating”
