Leeds’ Archie Presley is back on Paper Disco with his first EP following a storming debut on Trash The Wax # 5. There are three tracks of brilliantly produced, superior disco that is all set to soundtrack the summer. Ashley Beedle and Joey Negro best move over, there’s a new kid in town.
First up Cape Cod takes a horn riff and turns it round live instrumentation, congas and drums that pack a swing. Sweeps and dynamics make this a hit at any time of night and day; and hot damn, it’s catchy.
2 Chord Sangba takes things a bit more soulful with Rhodes and plenty of latin drums and percussion, making the most of them in the break. Then it’s back to business for late hands in the air shenanigans.
Finally Sour Indian drops the BPMs to dip it’s toes in the Med just in time for summer. Touches of acid, gorgeous chords and trippy atmospherics make it a stone cold, killer balearic chugger.
