3. Chris Massey Mix
4. Leon Sweet’s Wizard Mix
5. Flash Atkins Mix
Mathais Stubo’s Proviant Audio is launching Paper Disco with Once I Thought, the first single from his forthcoming second album ‘Drift Days & Disco Nights’.
His debut, ‘Real Love Tastes Like This’ announced his arrival in 2011 in true style with it’s heady mix of house, disco, soul and hip-hop. The new material is more disco and demonstrates his continued development as one of the most new exciting producers around today.
Once I Thought points the way towards a more disco direction but still with his trademark choppy production and layered instrumentation. Add an arrangement that always surprises to a vocoded vocal earworm and the summer of disco finally lands via Norway!
Prins Thomas takes on his fellow countryman in fine style, bringing his own psychedelic disco sound. Retaining the vocal, the hypnotic bass is introduced and the track builds before the broken kick is introduced a full 3 ½ minutes in. It continues to ebb and flow with washes, synths, samples, acid and moving bass in true head and feet mashing style. It finishes off the way it begins, deep and trippy!
Nu disco upstart Chris Massey takes time out from his day jobs at Paper Towers and Electric Elephant to come up with a mix that ticks the 4/4 disco boxes but takes it big room. With spacious bass and synth and the original’s nagging guitar it’s got Funktion 1 written all over it!
Leon Sweet brings his trademark crisp production and gives the mix a 80s bent. With touches of Blancmange and Japan, it’s squelchy, synthy and dancefloor effective!
Flash Atkins takes a more organic direction with live drums and percussion building up to a fat dropped bass and 4/4 beat. The break reintroduces the percussion again before it’s back to business!
