Soundersons – Headhunter EP

Fresh from scoring in Juno’s Best Disco of 2017 with Can’t Get Enough, the Soundersons are back with three fine cuts of proper dance music for those who know what’s what.

Headhunters kicks things off with a stripped back 80s analogue groove, driven by organ stabs and chunky drums. Things subtly build before some acid adds the weirdness and we’re locked down.

Make The Music keeps it deep but with added shake and shimmer and a solid bottom end. Vocal hooks, tuned percussion and a drum kit give it a late night beach vibe and the sun doesn’t seem too far away after all.

Finally Brazilian Summer brings the synths for a moodier track and an analogue disco not disco vibe. Latin percussion keeps things swinging and add dynamics as the bass and chords work their magic.

Fingerman – Make the Music is tasty :)

Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) – Great sound.

Get Down Edits – Very nice production on all 3, Make The Music sounds great.

James Rod – Brazilian is cream!!!

Marius Sommerfeldt (De Fantastiske To) – Great sound.

Jon Pierce / Da Wiseguy – Classy, quirky, cool. Expect nothing less from Paper.

Deep South Audio – Enjoyed the chunky deep vibes of the music .. quality thanks Paper recordings.

Trash The Wax # 5

The WAX is back to be TRASHED!

Our fifth venture into the discotheque crosses all over the globe & back again. It welcomes fresh blood to the Paper family such as Marma Boog, K-Effect, From Beyond & Kris Ramea as well as tried & tested studio wizards such as Fingerman, Rayko & Belabouche, Kooky & Damoon, Bruno Belissimo & Seven People.

Rest assured they are all packing serious heat that ranges from straight up, glitter dusted disco to heads down basement vibes. But one thing is for sure, they’re all certified winners!

Fingerman – “Glad to be a part of this! Lovely comp!”

Harri (Sub Club) – Lliking this will support and play”

Pete Herbert – Spot On

Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) – “Few great gems here”

Chris Massey – “Minus The Majors all the way for me but this is a massive release indeed!”

Billy Scurry – Still the best comps, by a country mile.. Massive amounts of heat on here Rayko, Bela, Minus, Seven, Marma, From Beyond all notable mentions.. But in fairness it’s all killer, as per! Bravo!!!”

Get Down Edits – “Nice selection of tracks right here, Fantasy Love Affair steals the show for us x”

Marius Sommerfeldt (De Fantastiske To) – “BALLS TO THE WALL ON THIS COMP !”

Da Wiseguy – “When I saw this drop into the inbox, I was excited. Lets just say it more than lived up to my expectation :)”

Phuturelabs – “So many great tracks on here. Will play these out for sure. Hard to pick a favourite”

Sean Innit – “Nice selection Will be rocking some of these this weekend Cheers Innit”

Vainc – 2000300

Hailing from Barquisimeto, Venezuela, Vainc makes his debut on Paper with two cuts from the deeper side of house.

2000300 has washes of synths set over a nagging guitar and percussion. With snatches of trumpet and vocals, it adds to a dubby tripped out house track reminiscent of Floppy Sounds and FK’s 90s productions.

‘It Smells Like Jungle’ hits a similar vein with tribal congas, tripped out FX, vocals and jungle noises. Seriously deep music for late nights and early mornings.

Flash Atkins – Death By Misadventure

Flash Atkins was last seen staggering up to Gaddins Dam in Calderdal a number of weeks ago. The police are conducting enquiries, if he had any friends or family they would be worried. In the meantime he left an EP of damn fine house music that we are releasing to help fund the search.
Pray for him.

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.

Sean Johnston (ALFOS) – “Most satisfactory!”

Fingerman – “Devastating”

Anthony Mansfield – “There yah go! Proper head twisting disco glory!”

Sunday Papers – Volume 3

It’s time for the Sunday Paper compilation, featuring some of the more horizontal and forgotten corners of the catalogue.  There are two exclusives with Bergen’s Keyboy making a return to the label and the wondrous GladLaks i Galaxen plus Leftside Wobbles’s unreleased space dub of Leon Sweet’s Sunny Bigler. Add in artists new and old like Jamie L, Crazy P, Maxx Mortimer, Steve Cobby, Flash Atkins, De Fantastiske To, Kahuun plus many more and it’s sunshine all the way.

So crack a tinny / roll a fat one / stick the kettle on / crank the BBQ and dive in.

Soundersons – Can’t Get Enough inc. DJ Spinna Remix

Paper Recording are back on vinyl with a fantastic debut 12” from Italian duo Soundersons, from the underground house scene of Bologna.

Can’t Get Enough is a deep electro-funk slice of nu disco with Diana G on vocals. It’s got 80s synths and squelches, vocal hooks a plenty, clonking percussion, Rhodes and that Metro Area / Tom Tom Club vibe. Parts I and II are split in to vocal and instrumental over one side of continuous play for maximum dance floor action.

On the flip, the mighty DJ Spinna brings his A game with a deep NYC take that is house music at it’s best. He uses synths, arps and the vocal to build the mix to hit it’s peak at the end.

Finally Education finished things off with a raw disco cut up that hits the floor running and keeps going full pelt. One for the dancers.

Alexander Barck (Jazzanova) – Will play this for sure.

Mark Farina – Dig it!

Tensnake – Education is funky.

Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) – DOPE DOPE!

Bottin – Super! Reminds me of some of my favourite music

James Rod – BIG SUPPORT!!!

 

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.

Vinny Villbass and the Skauern EP

Vinny Villbass is one of the Norwegian artists emerging from the shadows of the Oslo house scene. He co-runs and plays at the seminal Sunkissed, has had releases on Beatservice and Eskimo and is the mustachioed man about town . This is his debut for Paper and we are very pleased to welcome him in to the label’s Nordic family.

En Liten Pose Selvtillit is deep house at it’s finest and harks back to the early Tromsø techno scene pioneered by Biosphere and Mental Overdrive. Crisp production, clipped swinging beats and percussion plus an incessant bass make this one for the summer, before the track builds to a synth break that wobbles it’s way in to the world of the weird.

Kahytten (Full Fest Versjon) has a pulse and drive that will get any club rocking. Loose congas, synth riff, locked in bottom end and a wandering synth hypnotise in to a full blooded dancefloor destroyer. The studio trickery ramps up and we’ve got a fight on our hands.

Kahytten takes the template in a slightly different direction with more pads and if you try hard enough you can hear the sound of the Oslo fjord in the background.

LISTEN on JUNO

When I Want To EP

Norwegian young guns De Fantastiske To are back with two tracks that lift their game to the heavyweight division.

When I Want To is a stripped back vocal bomb. Machine drums and a nagging stab bring the swing before Della’s understated vocals set the soul. Equally at home in big rooms or sweaty basements from London to Sydney, this packs a massive underground punch.

Next up, Skumring keeps things subterranean but drops the BPMS to the chug setting. Clanking percussion, sub and an acid line draw you in to hypnosis before the break introduces a balearic pad and synth line. Then the drums are back and it’s a trip to the end.

Harri (Sub Club) – “Lovely warm up material”

Anthony Mansfield – “Strong release!”

Pete Herbert – “Excellent”

Tronik Youth – “Love Skumring”

Billy Scurry – “Yep, feeling these, very much!! Top work!”

Gold Boy (Midnight Riot) – “Nice work fellas”

Vinny Villbass – “Great tracks. heavy rotation.”

Aldrin Zouk – “Fab slo-slung builder on Skumming! Thanks!!”

Nick Holder (DNH) – “FIRE!”

Francisco Azpiri – “Hard to choose ¡¡¡, both mixes are excellent ¡¡¡ looking forward to spin them in Mexico clubs ¡¡¡”

James Rod -“BIG SUPPORT”

Somerville & Wilson – “Fantastic release from De Fantastiske!! Love both tracks. Especially When I Want To for the Dancefloor”

Richard Seaborne – “Ace…Norway meets Lil Louis”
