Rave-enka – Påfuglen EP

After providing hefty remix action for Richard Seaborne and behind the massive Gimme Some Dim Sum as one half of De Fantastiske To, Ravi Brunsvik steps up to drop his debut solo EP of the Norwegian good stuff on Paper.

Antibac kicks things off and to quote Chris in the office “it builds like an absolute bastard!”. Nearly 10 minutes of solid thunder is accompanied by jacking percussion and icy synth stabs whilst the beat just keeps on trucking. This one will grab you before you realise what’s happened.

Sur Sennep takes things to a late night discotheque located somewhere between The Hacienda and a Croatian festival. An almost acid house set up leads the way before evolving into the kind of balearic disco that can only be dreamed up in Norway. There are plenty of hooky synths, old skool keys and a bassline that squelches. Good times ahead when you unleash this..

Closing the EP off Påfuglen picks up the baton and takes things to the chill out room. Minimalistic and stripped back yet still full of enough synth squeaks, tweaks & bleeps to keep you hooked and intrigued. If Kraftwerk opened an opium den then this would surely be on their in-house playlist.

Sean Johnston – Chris Massey sent me this ages ago – I didn’t label it properly and I have been dying to know what it was – mystery solved. It’s fucking brilliant and has been a staple of 2015 ALFOS parties. KILLER!

Ron Basejam (Crazy P) – It’s a doozy.

Nutritious – This is EP is ridiculous!

Ralph Myerz – Superb stuff! All traxx rawks, very cool sound on the whole EP, full support!!

Wrighty – Loving Antibac, groovy as fuck.

Bad Barbie Beats – Cosmic chuggy loveliness.

Robot 84 – Secrets EP

e’ve not been using the C word for a while round these parts but that’s not to say we’ve gone off it. This knockout 3 track EP from Paper newcomer Robot 84 has rekindled the love of all things CHUG.

Secrets gets things rolling and is driven along by an arp bassline whilst spaced out percussion hits spin & sparkle alongside reverb drenched pads & strings that look to the stars.

If Secrets is the journey then Automatic lands you slap bang in the middle of the dance floor with a straight up, heads down house vibe. Imagine underground Manchester crossed with Baldelli’s Cosmic Club and you’re headed in the right direction.

Ego is a darker affair than its predecessors and more tuned for the 4am crowd. No messing house music, it trucks & thunders along with stubby brass sections coming in here & there, all topped off with spaced out delays & reverb to make it a worthy addition to this interstellar EP.

Support from:

Leftside Wobble – The Italo bump and grind of ‘Secrets’ is working it’s magic on me.

Tronik Youth – “Love this EP!”

Neil Diablo (El Diablo’s Social Club):
“good ep. love ego!”

Billy Scurry (Electric Elephant):
“OOOOFFFF!! That’s just made the weekend a bit better!! Top vibes all round”

Joe Morris (Clandestino):
“Top gear from Scott as always. Secrets my fave, will be playing. Full support!”

80’s Child:
“Robot 84 killin it! Secrets gets the stand out for me on this! ELECTRO GREATNESS!!! Good job :)”

Ben Pistor (Disco Bloodbath):
“Enjoying this! Just found in my junk mail! On it.”

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio):
“Loving the return of the chug! Secrets is my pick, but loving Automatic too”

Weedyman – Kanaga’s Revenge

Weedyman steps up for his debut Paper EP entitled “Kanaga’s Revenge” and it’s a bobby blinder. There are three original cuts of warped out sub-tropical house music that will find their place with the 7am in a Berlin basement kind of jocks and forward thinking clubs everywhere.

BMBJ gets the rave ball rolling with a big riff from the off and never letting up until the end. The track has a hypnotic, druggy vibe with burbling acid working the groove and it’s basement bugging all the way.

Ondo Ondo Anda nods a wink to Detroit and is a 9 minute opus to really get lost in. Warped out saxophone and cosmic stabs surf across the 4/4 and it’s a lockdown as the track ebbs and flows for maximum head mashing.

Feel It brings things back down to earth with a more sleazy ‘n smooth approach perfect for setting the tone early doors. Lush pads, catchy stabs, a familiar sample and just a hint of a 303 brings up the rear for quality, timeless deep house.

There’s an ice cool remix from Mr Sunny Bigler himself, Leon Sweet who notches it up ever so slightly to take things more late night and soulful whilst still retaining the vibe of the original.

One for the house heads.

Harri (SubClub)– “Yep, liking these!”

DJ Sneak– “GROOVY STUFF!”

Neil Quigley – “Classy EP which nods to the past whilst rooted in the present.”

Danielle Moore (Crazy P): “Love this package. Really lovely to hear some solid melodic grooves with quality production. A breakthrough in a world of relentless wumptie”

Hot Toddy (Crazy P): “nice ep, BMBJ is repetitive in all the right places, and my fav, liking the Leon Sweet mix as well”

Ruben & Ra – “HOT!”

Billy Scurry – “Digging the solid house vibes on this one, def one for the basements!”

George Summers (Midnight Riot): “Awesome package – full support”

Severino (Horse Meat Disco): “This is LOVELY!”

Kahuun – “Nice deep hypnotic release clearly inspired by the “old” masters from Chicago. Onda Ondo Anda is the favourite which reminds me of early dj Sneak with some afrobeat elements”

Pathaan – “Love it !!! All the tracks are HOT.”

Chris Massey – “This is rightly so absolutely massive & huge! Well in the bag…”

Shane Johnson (Fish Go Deep) – “Onda Ondo Anda working very well for me here. A gritty, hypnotic groove that takes it’s time but develops throughout. Will be playing.”

Fingerman: “Awesome EP. Love it all. Leon’s mix is a treat also :)”

Joe Morris (Clandestino) – “Really like the deep vibe on Feel It.”

B.G.Baarregaard – Partysvenskenes Dans EP

Paper’s Scandinavian connection continues with this release from one of Oslo’s finest residents. Although hailing from Reykjavik, B.G Baarregaard now resides in in Norway’s capital and its influence is clearly stamped all over this brilliant EP.

Partysvenskenes Dans has the kind of warm ‘n wobbly happenings that we’ve come to know and love from the scandi disco output. Plenty of resonance & space with a hint of Inspector Norse mean this treads on the right side of camp & kitsch whilst managing to pack enough of a stomp to ensure it blows up a dance floor.

(Got Me) Runnin’ jumps on a plane and heads straight to the late 80’s / early 90’s Manchester club scene. Big piano stabs and a classic vocal make it a real late night jacked out affair with everything here from the glory years of clubbing.

Konur Go Karlar seems to take on board both its predecessors to deliver a cut that is drenched in cosmicness as well as a nod to classic UK house. Simple, down the middle & hooky there’s enough going on to please those that favour discos and late night dancing dens.

Sleazy McQueen – “BG’s work is marked by some of the finest production quality in the modern disco scene. Partysvenskenes Dans sounds like BG’s been drinking the Norwegian-Disco kool-aid!”

Nutritious – “Undeniably fantastical.”

Ruben & Ra – “Nice’n’disco!”

Chris Coco – “Cool and a lot of fun at the same time, is that possible?”

Julian Sanza – “Loving this release! cheers!”

Phat Phil Cooper – “Full support on these bad boys…”

Stuart Knight (Toolroom) – “Runnin’ is the one for me , spot on chaps !!!”

Tunnel FM – “Stunning EP, like them all.. absolutely support, Thanks !”

Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) – “Yes i like Got Me Runnin'”

Ulysses – “I’m digging the funky Moog-filled disco vibe”

80’s Child – “You simply can not touch BG and combined with Paper Disco is awesome! every track is killer on this EP but my favourite is Got Me Runnin’ Great stuff kids!!!”

Billy Scurry – “Was really digging party.. then got me Runnin’ hit me! OOFF!”

Get Down Edits – “Killer release guys”

Neil Scott – “Got some nice scando-med Todd Terje type vibes to this. Me likey!”

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – “More neat Nordic noise from Paper boys! All tracks will work…Runnin’ has already been added to the “keep the girls happy” folder!!”

Danny Oliver – “Konur Og Karlar is my favourite here….classy slice of disco meets house. This is right up my street!”

2 Billion Beats – “Very rarely does a new record find it’s way into the bag these days. This EP just did!”

De Fantastise To – “Amazing EP from MR Iceman! Got Me Runnin is my fave!”

Somerville & Wilson – “Bouncy poolside house done well Somerville & Wilson”

Leon Sweet – Situation Stable EP

South coast resident Leon is back from rocking Croatia with two super good tracks that reflect both sides of the dance music coin.

“Above” is a fine slice of nu-disco to kick things off. It’s a kick heavy cut up with P funk bass, Chic guitar, live drums, sampled vocals and a healthy dose of leftfield wonk that has already proved itself at this year’s Electric Elephant.

On the flip “Below” takes things synthy, dark and hypnotic with congas to give it that all important funk element. It builds with 5th stabs, a healthy bottom end and enough melody to keep things interesting but it’s a 4am moment all the way.

Harri (Sub Club) – Digging these

Q-Burns Abstract Message – Below is one superb slink!

Ron Basejam (Crazy P) – Groovy shit.

Aldrin Zouk – Fab package! Diggin’ both.

Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) – EXELLENT production and sound.

Sophie Lloyd – Groovy

Joe Morris – Tropical Highway EP

Joe has been releasing music on some of the best UK labels of the moment including EDSC and Is It Balearic? and now the man from Clandestino is back with the follow up to his last EP just in time for summer. Tropical Highway follows the same format with one deep house houser and two gorgeous balearic nodders.

“Always” leads the pack and is aimed at that 3am moment when you’re parked in front of the speaker and living for the moment. Crisp reverbed percussion and a shuffling sub lay the foundations for keys that look towards Detroit. An old school sample helps build the track with strings and pads until the drop is reached and not a moment too soon, that kind of intensity can only be kept up for so long! Then it’s back down to the business of getting stuck in.

“Elysium” has a side chained chorused pad, gentle percussive keys, strings, a trippy vocal sample and the only thing missing is the sound of the lapping sea. It weaves it’s hypnotic magic as the synths and pads play counter melodies off each other sounding like a lost 90s Cafe Del Mar classic which is no bad thing in our book!

“Fireflies” carries on the same tip with filtered pads that are heavy on atmosphere as the bass moves around them. A stabby synth pushes the track along as the drums build and drop with the keys giving it that balearic hook.

So when you’re watching the sun go down and enjoying the perfect Ibiza / Croatia / Thailand / Yorkshire (delete where appropriate) moment , the Tropical Highway EP will be the soundtrack!

DJ Rocca – Nice bass driven deep house.

Rocky (X-Press 2) – Elysium and Fireflies are the ones.

Murray Richardson – Love this, love Paper!

Will Tramp – Great EP. Loving the package! Well done Joe

80s Child – Always is the track that will be getting the most plays from me great stuff :)

Pablo & Shoey – Puttin’ Some Stank On It

After wowing us on Trash The Wax #1 with their edit “Raw Human Emotion” Pablo & Shoey, those boys from the emerald isle are back with a 3 track EP of the good stuff.

Kicking things off is the glitter ball encrusted “Funk It” that goes straight for the disco jugular. It’s got all the essential Studio 54 ingredients such as infectious handclaps, wah wah guitar, hooky piano loops, catchy vocals plus a spaced out breakdown where you can get lost in the smoke.

Down To The Bone exits the discotheque and heads into the early 80s Bronx streets. Grab the lino, strap on your hi-tops and prepare to bust a few windmills with this slice of edited hip hop/electro funkyness with its very large bassline and everything but the 808 kitchen sink. Check yourself before you wreck yourself….

Big Base finishes things off by being an almost hybrid of the previous two cuts…disco tinged percussion with a wacka wacka guitar lick throughout, body popping breakbeat and old school stabs to ensure one foot is stuck firmly in the street with the other spinning on the floor.

Perfect summer drenched offerings all to liven things up a bit!

Ease (Nightmares on Wax) – Fave track is Big bass.. will support

Rune Lindbaek – Perfic for me sets!

Stuart Knight (Toolroom) – Down To The Bone for me once a B-Boy always a B-Boyyyy

2 Billion Beats – Spot the Davy DMX sample! What a bleeding ace EP, loving the 80s electro vibes.

Bogdan Taran – Funk It is lovely piece of disco!

Deep South Audio – Upbeat sounds …. Disco fantastic .. defo not plastic and gonna make the girlies spin … Another summer winner from Paper

2 Billion Beats – Spacey Disco Party EP

2 Billion Beats are back and blow me if they don’t just keep getting better. Instantly recognizable from their crisp arps, 80s synths and deceptively subtle arrangements the boys from the 80s are gathering steam nicely for their forthcoming album on Paper.

First up All Over Exposure has side chained pads, twinkling Rhodes, trippy sax, and synths weaving melodies as the track ebbs and flows for maximum dynamics. It builds steadily, gently drawing you in and before you know it you’re ‘tatas deep!

Kubrick’s Jive keeps the 80s thread going with its sounds and a shuddering chorused bass that builds to a punchy riff. It really takes off after the break with a nagging other-worldy sample, increasingly driven NRG bass and acid giving it some edge.

Finally Apollo saves the best till last by dropping the BPMs but upping the grunt . A guitar riff starts proceedings as the disco squelching bass come in, followed by a pitched vocal and sampled bass guitar combo. The 303 finishes things off nicely and its mission complete if dancefloor mayhem was the objective.

Sean Johnson (ALFOS) – A cheeky selection.

Doc L Jnr – This is a really good piece of work.

Sleazy McQueen – Digging the spaced out vibes!

Max Pask – 3 good tracks, Apollo 303 is my fave will play.

Billy Scurry – Apollo 303…WOW! and then some.. top vibe!

Pathaan – Awesome acidic vibes!

Murray Richardson – 3 quality tunes here, diggin them all but All Over Exposure is the one I like most ;) … Happy Birthday Paper!

Wrighty (Soul Buggin’) – All Over Exposure = Roof Top Terrace, definitely a summer tune

Leon Sweet – Solid! You always know these boys are going to deliver. Quality production, vibes and grooves a plenty. I’m loving all 3 tracks and my fave Apollo 303, everything I want in a tune is right there. Top marks fellas and can’t wait for the album.

Nathan Detroit – Nice deep vibes.

Neil Scott (El Diablos Social Club) – Diggin thgis shiz guys.

Black Mighty Wax – Gotta good feeling from All Over Exposure and Apollo 303 is magic!

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – Another strong release from 2BB, Apollo 303 has been happily tried and tested, works every time…pure filth! Looking forward to the album!

Trash The Wax Vol. 1

Paper’s output has often lurked on the fringes of disco and now seemed as good a time as any to jump in with both feet, goggles and snorkel.

“Trash The Wax Vol. 1” hits the digital racks on April 3 featuring 16 original low slung, wigged out and floor heavy cuts from the great, the good, the tapped and the untapped.

Released on Paper Disco (a sub label of Paper Recordings) it follows hot on the heels of the 80s sugar rush that was Proviant Audio’s “Drift Days & Disco Nights” which found its way in to the boxes of Tensnake, Soul Clap, Horsemeat Disco and Danny Krivit as well as garnering a Norwegian Emmy nomination for the best album of 2013.

Artists on Volume 1 range from young 80s bucks like 2 Billion Beats who are pretenders to Crazy P’s crown, Manchester’s City Life DJ of the 2013 and Wet Play resident Ste Spandex, Paper’s ginger underground house assassin Richard Seaborne and Italian duo Gran Turismo.

More seasoned support comes from veterans like bootleg king Keep Schtum, Brighton’s builder of heavy grooves Fingerman, Australia’s disco vigilante Late Nite Tuff Guy and Manchester’s best kept secret Daco. And that’s just the ones we mentioned!

Running from sleazy late night jams to 80s synth and NRG to classic cut-ups, if this album didn’t make you want to go out and jump off a podium it’s time to get your hearing checked!

Releases

James Rod – Cosmic Japan EP

Spain’s very own wobbly disco master James Rod makes his solo debut on Paper Disco with 3 tracks of (deep breath) cosmic-disco-funk-balearic-banger-business. Let’s just say these are primed and ready for some serious dance moves.

Cosmic Japan gets the party started and it is over seven minutes of pure sun soaked ace-ness. There’s a a bubbling NRG bass, laser stabbing synths and pads to die for so climb aboard, next stop the all night discotheque!

Next up, Double Night Straight heads straight for the bongos and 80s drum machine. Before long the pads & synths start to bounce and fizz before the thumping bass gets serious. If there’s not a strobe running while this bangs out complain to the management.

Closing off Night Stratus slows things down slightly and slips a few microdots into your Cinzano for truly hypnotic disco chugger. There’s a massive off kilter dirty bass plus a massive jug of pitched down slo-mo drug funk to get lost in.

Ron Basjam (Crazy P) – “Jolly good”

Fingerman – “Solid Italo business from James. Excellente!”

Billy Scurry – “OOOFFF!!! Yep, these’ll most definitely do! In the words of Rodney Trotter… “Cos Mick!””

Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) – “YES the first 2 are BIG”

Get Down Edits – “Very Nice, Lovely Space Disco vibe to all 3 jams x”

Anthony Mansfield – “Fun for the whole dancefloor!”

Chris Massey – “Its finally here!!! Cosmic Japan & Double Night are big winners”

80s Child – “The Rodmeister always delivers!”

2 Billion Beats – Be Nice To Each Other

2 Billion Beats are Manchester based DJs and producers Tom Lonsborough and Col Hamilton. They have come up through the rainy city’s thriving club scene after being inspired by acts such as Groove Armada, Basement Jaxx, Chemical Brothers and Crazy P. They wanted to carry on that legacy of taking electronic beats live to smash up dance floors, mosh pits and festivals. Oh boy have they succeeded!

Signed to Paper Recordings in 2011 they have gone on to deliver remixes and originals to an array of international labels such 3am, Stoneyboy, Finish Team and Deep Site. DJs such as Ralph Myerz, Justin Robertson, Aeroplane, Tensnake, Horse Meat Disco, Eric Duncan, Fingerman and Danny Krivit have been turned on with tracks such as ‘The Moodymann’ and ‘Noise In Your Eye’ which are regarded by some as modern club classics.

Their remit is tight disco and house influenced grooves created with a love for live recordings of real instruments and synthesiser hardware in a writing process that involves multiple reworks, samples and chaotic collaboration.

For their debut album ‘Be Nice To Each Other’ 2 Billion Beats have hooked up with vocalists Marietta Smith and Dieter Lynch to take the production and songwriting up a notch ready for entry in to the big league. From dance floor bangers to full blown hands-in-the-air anthems and super deep tech-house to 80s inspired nu-disco nodders, the album packs a punch as it’s songs flow seamlessly from one to the next, designed to be a listened to as a whole as it bleeds together for a soundtrack to the best night of your life.

In an increasingly uncertain world the album comments on the grind of life in an ever morphing, media controlled world and asks the question ‘are we just able to just be nice to each other?’. Well there’s only one way to find out so don your rave goggles and jump in, 2 Billion Beats are coming your way!

Get it in Juno itunes Beatport and all good digital stores

Fingerman – ‘Excellent LP!’

Severino Panzettas (Horse Meat Disco) – ‘Cool album..great stuff’

Pete Herbert – ‘Excellent!’

Nutritious – ‘Yes! So good!!!’

Joe Morris – ‘Well done guys this is sounding very polished indeed.’

2 Billion Beats – Sold My Soul

2 Billion Beats are back with an almighty slab of disco licked house music that is cooler than a cucumber straight out the fridge!

Sold My Soul is the first release from their forthcoming album on Paper and sets its stall out right from the word go! Synths stabs that instantly grab you, smooth bass, amazing vocals and also a big old hands aloft piano breakdown that ensures the rafters will be heavily shaken! Plenty more greatness to come from their album in Spring but this should keep you well & truly topped up in the meant time.

On remix duty is Paper’s boy wonder Chris Massey who takes the party subterranean & ups the oomph factor with a full on stomper & dub version. They both demand a full dance floors attention and will guarantee to give the PA system a good going over.

Hold tight suckas!

Ron Basejam: “Chris’s dub is doing the job!”

Daco: “The original mix is fantastic! Good work guys! Chris’s Dub Mix is a winner too!”

DJ Rocca: “Chris’ dub here for me”

Will Tramp: “Big track. Playing the Massey remix at Homoelectric tonight!”

Get Down Edits: “Excellent Stuff once again from Paper, Chris Massey remixes doing the business!”

Billy Scurry: “Great original, but Mr Massey moves it into a different arena.. Great vibes!!”

De Fantastiske To – Monokrom EP

Norwegian young guns De Fantastiske To have come up with three brand new basement blasters for their new Monokrom EP.

It kicks off with the title track that is a straight up deep tech houser packing a vocal punch. Snapping percussion, detuned synth stabs, acid squelch and a large bassline are all present and correct as the sultry vocal stylings of their fellow countryman OST make it a certified killer!

Litt Dristig keeps things murky and a little hypnotic with swirly pads & organ chords then some stubby synth shots that ensure this party is kept subterranean. Proper deep house and not a vest in sight!

Sensommer goes jacking whilst keeping an eye firmly on the dance floor. Beats & bass start the party off and keep everything in check until some almost balearic disco pads & synths bring an element of sunrise to the forefront while the arps go twinkly.

Paper’s resident rodent and all round rotter Flash Atkins manages to stay off the juice long enough to turn in a full on, heads down tech edged banger that should be only played in the darkest of Berlin dark rooms.

Neil Diablo – Monokrom is pretty heavy!

Billy Scurry – Great release, looking forward to hearing Sensommer on a beach in the near future, but the Flash rmx steals it for me.

Danielle Moore (Crazy P) – Nice grooves on here with some quality skippy rhythms!

Goldboy – These guys always deliver the goods.

ROBOT 84 – Hard to pick a winner on here, all killer… thanks!!!

Get Down Edits – Cracking release, look forward to playing these.

Pathaan – NICE

Kahuun – Nice deep release for the dancefloors. The original Monokrom with Ost on vocals is a pure killer track. The Flash remix is on a strong second position.

Mental Overdrive – Flash mix for me. More off-centre than originals.

Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) – YES i like this.
