Situation – Get A Taxi

Making their Paper debut, we present Situation who drop a dollop of mutant disco at our door and ask to ‘Get A Taxi’.

The original has all kinds of wobbly goodness with a sultry vocal and is infectious in all the right places, a perfect mood setter.
Its a proper love­ in on the remix front with Goshawk kicking things off who takes a darker house route and sticks with the vocal but pairs it up with the kind of reverb drenched hits that hit you between the eyes when you walk in to a club.

Alkalino strips things down for his dub rework that goes on a hypnotic kinda route as he keeps those soaring sweeps & pads firmly in place!

Lovedrop let the sunshine in and goes for a beach bar strut that will sound lovely as you’re stretched out on that sun lounger waiting for the waiter to drop off a Mojito.

Finally Vampire Disco go straight for the neck and jack things up to dance floor with plenty of bounce by the ounce and hooks coming at you from all directions!

Pete Herbert – Yes indeed! This great, Akalino and Love Drop my favs here.

Fingerman – Good stuff! Original version is ace. Like the trippy Lovedrop mix too though.

De Fantastiske To – Folk Og Ferie EP

Our Norwegian friends De Fantastiske To deliver the goods once more in this slam dunk/home run/golden goal (delete as necessary) of an EP. If you like serious body shaking house music then prepare to hold on tight!

Folk Og Ferie starts off and its all kinds of ace-ness, marrying balearic tinged disco with jacking Chicago type house all sprinkled with that special Norsk cosmic dust. You don’t know whether to raise your hands, blaze up a fat one, order a cocktail or just dance, dance, dance! Maybe try all four?

Teknokofte runs out of the gate with snapping Roland 909 percussion and its sights firmly set on melting your face. A hooky bassline that’s drenched in squelch sits hand in hand with stubby strings & jazz infused chords.

Orgeldoner slows things down to take you into a purple haze of blessed out yacht rocking balearic disco. 80’s bassline with hooky chords, sustained string action and of course that signature Norwegian special sauce ties it up nicely.

Sunshine feat. Jay Nemor is like the long lost brother of a Gil Scott Heron track with it’s super laid back grooves. Dreamy rhodes, jacked up percussion and a sweet vocal make this fit perfectly into the “Nu-jazz balearic disco lounge house whatevs” category.

Mark Farina – Nice cuts”

Get Down Edits – “Really nice release from Paper once again”

Space Ranger – “Perfekt summer-jam”

Andy Inland Knights – “Nice release …liking all cuts”

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – “More Fantastiske stuff! Great EP, Orgeldoner sounding great but once more Jay Nemor provides the magic.”

Harri – “Sunshines the one for me…lovely”

Nutritious – “A dancefloor with any sense will freak to Teknoköfte”

DJ Rocca – “LOVE IT!”

Dubble D – “Folk Og for me”

Bad Barbiebeats – “Solid little EP full of Chuggy, Loopy, Loveliness. Feeling the Robotic, Filthy, Grind of “Teknokofte” most”

Groovement Soul – “Feeling the hypnotic vibe of Folk Og Ferie”

Q-Burns Abstract Message – “Nice, clean sounds throughout. Liking the dreamy arpeggiators in ‘Folk Og Ferie’.

Robot 84 – “Killer EP, every track a winner… Luv it!! I’ll play every track…”

Bottin – Orgeldöner

Neil Diablo – “Solid groovey ep. love Orgeldoner. Is that kebab related?”

Diskobeistet – Birkelunden EP

Paper’s hook up with Norway continues to pay dividends with new artists who seem to knock it out the park with each release.

The latest is People Love Music’s Diskobeistet who tick all the boxes for grasping the sound of Paper’s heritage on a 4 track EP release for lovers of straight up “proper” house.

Birkelunden teams up tribally beats and smoking Rhodes with a Norwegian gentlemen’s vocal that we’re told is about going to the park, having a smoke and jumping up and down on a bouncy castle. So now you know.

The remix comes from another of our Norwegian friends, De Fantastiske To’s Ravi who gives it a bit of old school grit and jack before the bleepy bloppy style breakdown opens it up for the darkest dance floors. Is it techno? Is it house? Who cares!

Gammal Morro goes late night with a lazy hazy, sunset drenched vibe hooked around a Rhodes and nagging riff. Drive with the top down on this one and sport a pair of sockless espadrilles while you’re at it.

Nattergal is classic Paper all over, live sounding drums with snaps and claps in all the right places alongside a low slung bass line & chika chika guitar. Never straying far from the path, this is house for those that like it simple, straight forward and solid.

Support in from selectors:

Proviant Audio – How Does It Feel?

Mathias Stubo’s disco project continues to forge its way ahead in 2014 with a nomination for Drift Days & Disco Nights as best dance album of last year in the equivalent of the Norwegian Grammys.

How Does It Feel featuring Lido Lido is the third single to be taken off it and is the perfect combination of 80s, disco and pop with good times written in to its DNA. With Rhodes, sparkling synths, a healthy dose of NRG and a killer hook it’s been all A-listed on Norwegian national radio and is as perfect a 4 minutes as you’d ever want to spend.

Veteran disco merchant Pete Herbert brings dancefloor know-how, giving his version a solid 4/4, nagging bass and killer riff that sounds like an instant classic. Recently road tested at Paper’s Christmas party it was the biggest tune of the night and as the break kicked in the cheers were worthy of a cup final!

Paper stalwart Richard Seaborne takes a different path with a mix that is all about the acid and the jack. With a bouncing bass and drums that swing it works a groove for those underground floors that are the best parties.

Roberto Rodriguez – Excellent tune with great remixes! Count me in!

Ron Basejam (Crazy P) – Pete’s mix is well chunkeh duck.

Q-Burns Abstract Message – Good stuff and definitely digging the Pete Herbert mix though I am a little allergic to ’80s synths. The original is pretty hot, too.

Olle Abstrakt – Really like the original and Pete´s mix. Will play both a lot. Great to hear LidoLido´s voice on some proper stuff. He´s a big popstar in Norway with silly tracks on the radio.

Severino Panzetta (Horsemeat Disco) – PETE HERBERT is the man .. Great Richard Seaborne mix too

DJ Rocca – Pete Herbert Mix for me…full support!

Black Mighty Wax – Original Mix is good for airplay and Pete Herbert Mix will be my guest several times along my DJ sets!!

Da Wiseguy – The original and the Pete Herbert Mix have their charm….but it’s the Richard Seaborne Mix which really hoofs it. Feels good to me!

Bootsy – All about the remixes for me. Seaborne’s remix taking it straight to a dirty basement, whilst Mr Herbert’s trademark sound flows his remix turning the track into a bona fide Disco winner!

Cowbell Radio – Pete Herbert’s mix is the winner for me, liking the break, the way it kicks back in and then the added synths afterwards!

Dan J – Richard Seaborne mix is wicked. Pete Herbert is well tasty too. Full support!

This Is Why We Dance – Pete Herbert mix for me.

Justin Harris (Freaks) – Love Richard’s mix!!

Flash Atkins – Did You Forget To Shine?

Flash Atkins new EP

Deep disco vibes from Flash!

Super-numpty Flash Atkins is back with a new EP and it’s a bobby belting package of deep nu-disco vibes.

PAPDL39

Flash Atkins – Did You Forget To Shine? feat. Sally Garozzo

1. Original
2. Dubstramental
3. Hot Toddy Mix
4. Jamie L Mix
5. Havana Candy Mix

Flash Atkins is a Super Hero who is neither super nor a hero. In fact he’s pretty much a waste of space who would sell his own grandmother for a free drink.

However he does still have the ability to manipulate sound and uses it to make high-grade house music for Paper Recordings.

Did You Forget To Shine? is deep nu-disco that first saw the light of day earlier in the year (in edited form) on the label’s warmly received compilation, Paper Cuts # 1.

Featuring the vocals of Sally Garozzo and based around an analogue bass riff, the track weaves hypnotically with pads and synths before stripping things back in the second half. A rhythm guitar is then introduced that builds things back up to the end.

Next up, there’s an instrumental version for those allergic to vocals. Keeping all the original elements but with added synth lines to keep the track bubbling, it again builds to the rhythm guitar and pads at the end.

First off the blocks, Crazy P’s Hot Toddy is welcomed back in to the Paper fold with an ace mix of deep soulful house. A rubber bass pins things down whilst snatches of vocals and Rhodes make way for a tougher synth riff to get it rocking.

Man of mystery Jamie L does his leftfield disco thing and works the groove over a live bass, lazy low-slung beat and live claps. It’s locked in heads down tackle that layers up the riff with a synth that changes it up a gear.

Finally Havana Candy brings his analogue sensibility to the mix with a deep and techy version that uses elements of the original and full vocals but with added pads, giving it a timeless Balearic electronic flavour.

DJ Nutritious – Possibly my favourite release of the year!

Roberto Rodriguez – Nice new song from Flash! All the versions are cool, but i think i will spin the Jamie L mix the most.

Andy Ash – Cool track, Hot Toddy remix is really nice.

Pete Herbert – Digging the Dub and Hot toddy mixes!!

Miguel Migs – Digging the “jamie L remix” and also the “dubstrumental”.

El Harvo (Future Boogie) – Feeling this!

Fred Everything – Straight to the Hot Toddy for predictable ‘ol me.

Drop Out Orchestra – Lovely. Original all the way

Cristophe (Futureboogie) – Loving the vocal and groove on this. Hot. Will play the original and the Hot Toddy mix.

Daniel Solar – Original and/or Hot Toddy Remix. Not exactly sure yet. But overall a very nice release :-)

Henri Kohn – Great singles. Hot Toddy mix for me but all mixes are hot.

Inland Knights – Jamie L mix is the one for me.

Jonny Miller – More quality from the most rubbish superhero of all time.

That mix i think is my fav mix too X JM

Death on the Balcony – Hot Toddy please!!!

Mighty Mouse – Original mix for me, great track, full support.
