Drop the Pressure by Flash Atkins & 2 Billion Beats

Two of Paper’s favourites have collaborated to update Mylo’s classic Drop The Pressure in to a nu-disco banger that’s set to take over the summer. What started as an edit quickly turned in to a full blooded re-make before they hauled in Crazy P’s Danielle Moore for vocals under her Ladydriver guise.

The original brings a band to the party with rhythm guitar, strings, live bass and horn section. The intro teases before the riff that everybody knows and then wallop, we’re off. For the break, Danni brings the disco and hands in the air doesn’t even touch it.

Norwegian next big things Lakeshouse knock it out the park with their 4/4 nu-disco version. It weaves the dynamics and melody around a vocoder and NRG that locks in to deliver a classy, dancefloor remix.

Marma Boog goes deep and cosmic for a pitched down balearic take. 80s synths and drums top off burbling and tripped out vocals. Sunsets never sounded so good.

Flash Atkins & Charlie Sinclair – That Hit (Part 2)

Following last year’s That Hit which rocked boxes worldwide, Flash and Charlie have teamed up again to cover one of the greatest club records of the 90s, Mood II Swing’s All Night Long.

It has the official stamp of approval with Lem Springsteen saying ‘its a fantastic production and vocal which literally blew me away. The original was such a cheap recording…so it’s a major compliment to hear such a classy new version!’

All Night Long is sublime deep garage with funked up beats, live bass, guitar and strings. Add Charlie’s gorgeous vocals and its one for the Southport Weekender heads, sitting perfectly with the likes of Kon, Kerri Chandler and Master at Work.

Flash’s dub hypnotises with a two note B-line, delayed EFX, sparse production and trippy vocals. Jazzy keys, looped guitars and make it a tracky, heads down shoe shuffler.

Oslo’s De Fantastiske To add their magic to the ingredients and the result is a lush eight minutes of synth chords, arps and 808 drums. It is reminiscent of Nu Groove, Marshall Jefferson and early Paper.

Finally, Norway’s Doc L Junior brings out the soul. Rhodes, synth bass, upfront congas, wonky vocals and its a late night jam that hits the sweet spot.

Mark Farina – Dig!

Fingerman – Proper house music. Love it :)

Richard Seaborne – Preprandial EP

Paper favourite Richard Seaborne is back and on fire with two killer tracks.

Ken has pumped drums doing the heavy lifting while a minor piano progression works with the simple string line and the funk bass filters to full effect. Make no mistake, this is a stripped back bomb to cause scenes.

Susy takes a different route down to the depths of arpeggiated chug. Back in the day acid bass, attacking distorted stabs, italo pads and filtered samples push it deep in to hypnotic ALFOS territory. A track that will rock boxes from techno to house to disco and back.

Nutritious: “Always incredible music from Richard Seaborne. This rocks.”Robot 84:

Robot 84: “Nice deep vibes on this one, really feelin it…”

James Rod: “Super cream!!!”

Somerville & Wilson: “Loving the tasty vibes of Susy! Proggy Chug tastic! FULL support here”

Fingerman: “Loving the tasty vibes of Susy! Proggy Chug tastic! FULL support here”

From Beyond – New Moon EP

Paper Disco continues to support emerging talent and Alex Wastnidge’s From Beyond is a fine example of a new generation of disco producers. His second EP for Paper Disco is three tracks of stripped back fire that were made with ‘analogue synths, MPC 1000, electric guitar and live bass’.

New Moon has a disco-not-disco B-line that breaks for cover with the 80s synths and guitar for heads down business. Double hand claps brings smiles and its NRG all the way.

Mass Transit slows things down but with the same dubbed out live sound. There are squelches and arps to take it into a cosmic area but with maximum dance floor sensibilities.

Finally, Earthbound is more tripped out with delayed SFX and synths driven along by cowbells and congas. Next stop outer space!

DJ Rocca: “Superb old school/new school disco EP”

Get Down Edits: “Quality production, New Moon is right up our street, driving bass with catchy chord stabs!”

Tronik Youth: “Yes! real cool EP of disco tunes!”

Duncan Grey: “This is ace! You know the live bass and guitar thing is right up my alley! Playing a so-called balearic style gig this weekend and will deffo give New Moon a spin”

The Wild Army Vol.2

The EP series returns with more outlaws from San Francisco, Mexico, Japan, Portugal and err, Nottingham causing havoc on dance floors worldwide.

Mr Tea is back, this time remixing Praus and he’s turned in a deep house, space disco banger. Tribal drums, analogue B-line and heavy atmospherics result in a 4am melon twister of a track.

Tokyo resident R-04’s ‘Kanbanwa’ is 4.38 of perfectly formed deep disco garage. Heavy beats blend with synth jams to make way for the popping bass played by Mike Watt of Minutemen and The Stooges fame. That’s right, as in Iggy Pop.

For Torn Sail’s Treasure, Tiago follows up his epic Birds remix on Claremont 56 with balearic headlights turned to full beam. A nagging synth bass bounces along as organ, effected vocals and live drums create a mood that’s just lovely.

Finally, Picotropico takes things deep with stripped back house track ‘Oslove’ that uses samples, percussion and drums to take us deep into the jungle. Halfway through, things pick as the pulsing bass starts to drive a perfect blend of early doors / late night house music.

Bill Brewster: “Really like the Tiago remix!”

DJ Rocca: “Oslove is great!”

Sean Johnston (ALFOS) : “Some crackers on here but the Praus is really doing it for me the most!”

Fingerman: “Some lovely balearic moments here!”

Chris Massey: “Kanban Wa is absolute killer but that Tiago remix is aces!!!”

James Rod: “Full support!!!”

Robot 84: “quality tunes as always, lovin the balearic downtempo tune by Torn Sail”

Minus The Majors – Noise On Repeat

Minus The Majors – Noise On Repeat

1. Black and White
2. Peanut Dust
3. Baker Lights
4.Ivasha Flow

Following their appearance on Trash The Wax 5, we are thrilled to release Minus The Majors’ debut 4 track EP ‘Noise On Repeat’.

The dubby & filtered opener Black & White is stripped back garage with plenty of subby, bouncing bass. Seven and a half minutes of proper house joy.

Peanut Dust is straight up sunshine grooves with bags of swing. Kerri Chandler style stabs across organ chords and an infectious high end pattern plus a breakbeat brings the groove.

Baker Lights starts with breaks then drops to a 4/4 as the twanging digi bass hits your head. Stabs, synths & samples bounce in all directions whilst ripping over the drums.

Ivasha Flew closes off the party and heads deep into the Latin tropics with tribal chants, drums and infectious synth lines. This is a proper late night Balearic beauty and will cause scenes if dropped at the right moment.

Nutritious – Indeed a really, really good EP. Some of the freshest new house around. Nicely done.

Fingerman – Ivasha Flew is lush! Great stuff :)

Get Down Edits – Very Nice Production & lovely sound.

Robot 84 – Quality EP, really like all the tunes. Baker Lights is right up my street…

Mordisco – Musica de Baile EP

We are very pleased to welcome Granada’s finest, Mordisco to Paper Recordings with an EP that is ‘a tribute to the 90s sound’ and delivers in spades.

Musica de Baile has clean and crisp production, fizzing percussive arps and a krautrock synth that builds in wonderfulness as the track develops. Is it deep house, space disco or balearic? Who cares when its this good!

Nahual gets lush with Mordisco’s sparking production. Heavy on atmospherics, the bass drives things along as synth lines weave in and out and the dynamics build in to a trip for the head and feet.

Christophe (Futureboogie) – Excellent stuff this!

Craig Bratley – Liking this.

Fingerman – Lush!

Chris Massey – Love, love, love this! Massive vibes!

Anthony Mansfield – Arptastic!

Rave-enka – Full Fres EP

The more beardy half of De Fantastiske To is back with more of his floor filling tech-disco bombs straight from the heart of Oslo.

Full Fres leads the charge with a nagging riff, filtered pad and swinging drums. An acid arp brings the top end as the music works its hypnotic magic in to peaktime madness.

Regnværsdag keeps the analogue synth feel but takes a deeper route at the breaks with minor key pads and keyboard stylings for wonderful results.

Finally Teppefall takes a tribal drum loop and puts it through the Rave-enka disco machine. A driving bass pushes the dancers before a gorgeous chord change and arp bring the happy vibes.

Justin Robertson – “Massive…will hammer to bits”

Harri (Sub Club) – “Liking all of these….will play and support”

Fingerman – “Lovely warm vibes. Cheers!”

James Rod – 10/10

Anthony Mansfield – “Chunky jams for proper ravelording.”

Nutritious – “Deep, fuzzmatic, tropical. Tiki Disco!”

Olle Abstract – “Good stuff. Teppefall is the main track for me!”

Robot 84 – “All three tracks sounding great, Full Fres & Regnvaersdag doing it for me…”

Francisco Azpiri (Soundersons) – “Like it very much, for sure on my set ¡¡¡ thanks ¡¡¡”

Found Sounds – “Liking this”
