This is one of those mix projects set up by chance which ended up producing one of the best slices of music on the label. John Andersson and Johan Emmoth from Zoo Brazil (LAID) produced their remix with an 80’s influenced guitar and synth…In fact Stuart Price (Les Rhythm Digitales) used this on his Fabric mix compilation to great acclaim, in addition Faze Action set down perfect rhythm induced disco fare and Reset (Salt City Orchestra’s alter ego) provide the final audio magic. This remastered release (Alain Paul from One Million Mangoes in Berlin) includes all the vocal and dub mixes that were produced in the series.
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.

Paper’s relationship with Norway continues to go from strength to strength and we’re super excited to have brand new artists from the land of the midnight sun : De Fantastiske To. They are Oslo residents Marius Sommerfeldt and Ravi Brunsvick with a talent for making modern soulful house music with a foot in the old school.
Kodenavn Syden kicks things off with 909 / 808 drums, a two line bass and lush chords. Coming on like a Nu Groove classic, an arp weaves its way round the soulful grooves and the result is house music that has quality running though it like a stick of Bergen rock. If they have rock.
Smile is percussion heavy with jazzy Rhodes and a deep American voice extolling the virtues of positivity. Summoning the spirit of Marshall Jefferson’s Open Your Eyes there’s a preset sax playing the top line and it’s the sound of a lost classic from back in the day.
Finally Dragsug slows things down but finds a killer groove with a live bass and hypnotic feel that builds before synth keys give it the hook Layers of strings are then added as the track finds its way to dance floor heaven.
Ron Basejam (Crazy P) – Real nice, understated and not reliant on dynamic pops and whistles to do its job.
Rocky (X-Press 2) – Dragsug for me. Going to be fun trying to pronounce this lot on the radio tomorrow.

Leri Ahel (Mutant Disco Radio Show) – Love it. Especially “Dragsug”.
This Is Why We Dance – Nice dreamy vibes, will support
Deep South Audio – Drasug keeps the funk pressure on …. lovely EP, very Paper styles.
Paper Disco continues its march onwards with an EP from Research. The band were recently heard on Trash The Wax and Day By Day on Paper Recordings last year had Psychemagik sprinkling their remix fairy dust.
Miss Ya takes things back to the 80s with big drums, off kilter bass and a straight ahead groove. Add moody vocals, lush pads for the chorus, a scattering of distorted guitars, Rhodes plus super good production and its a heavy track for DJs who know what’s what.
The Go-Go Time Mix takes things moodier for a more stripped back dubbier version but keeps all the rhythm in place. The vocal is used sparingly with the Rhodes, guitar, piano and congas all taking their turn to keep the track moving along as it jams out to the end touching on classic tracks as it goes.
It’s a refreshing take on disco that isn’t using the good times of the Paradise Garage as its inspiration but reaches for darker and more interesting corners.
Ron Basejam (Crazy P) – Well wonk-funk. Nice one!
Tim Love Lee – Really feeling this.
Get Down Edits – Feeling this guys!
Cosmic Disco – Nice chuggy discoid vibes! Early doors slap bass tackle. Thanks!

Billy Scurry – Sterling dancefloor vibes, really digging!
Neil Scott (El Diablo Social Club) – NIce traxxxx.

Advokkat – Cool track.
This Is Why We Dance – Go-Go Time mix for me here.
Deep South Audio – Both tunes show that the band have a swag in there sound . For me ill be sliding the remix late in to the DJ set when the lights are dark and the vibe is deep.
Ste Hodge – Moody & sassy in equal measures – Brilliant stuff!
Frank Lihaug -Nice and funky!
Black Mighty Wax – These grooves have infected my mind!
Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – The original is instantly one of my favourite tunes of the year! Pure sleaze, and definitely the kind of track you could build a whole set around! The Go-Go mix is also strong, that piano came out of nowhere and nearly floored me! Definitely getting hammered all Summer!
Mutant Disco Radio Show – Go-Go Time mix for me.
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. HeÂ´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.

Wrighty (Soul Buggin’) -best Proviant Audio so far, that Pete Herbert mix is just made for our dancefloor
Reza Athar – Richard Seaborne is the winner again!
Stuart Knight (Toolroom) – Pete Herbert smashes it with a proper disco work out ….NICE
J.Cub & Lil’ Mark have teamed up for three cuts of deep house that sound like they were made specifically for our Paper. Those who know the catalogue will hear flavours of Kenny Hawkes, Head Nodding Society and Dirty Jesus.
J.Cub is man about Leeds town and club owner as well as being one of the people behind Baker Street Records before leaving to concentrate on Eclectic Avenue Records. Lil’ Mark has been releasing records on labels Classic, MFF and Greenkeepers and been championed by jocks like Derrick Carter.
No Time is a shuffling groove with a grinding bassline, subtle sample and minimal keys. That is all the best house music needs and this sucks you in to its hypnotic grasp.
Next up Dark Days has a techier feel with a more straight up swing and digi bass that is layered up with an effected marimba and EFX. Again its all about sticking with the groove as it draws you in but things are keep interesting with the pad that filters in and out along with tripped out vocals
The Dark Dub strips things back even further for trippy house business!
Soul Clap – Classy for dat ass-y. Truly house music!
Ron Basejam (Crazy P) – No time works every time.

Joe Morris – Horizons EP
1. Over My Head
3. Sky Drops
Joe Morris has been earning his stripes as a DJ for over 20 years and more recently as a producer with releases on 3am, Nang, EDSRC and Baker Street. He is also promoter of the Leeds based Clandestino parties that burn a hole in the Northern underground. Joe can be found party starting behind the decks at places like the Electric Elephant and all over the UK and Europe.
Over My Head kicks things off and is main room deep house with plenty of soul. Wrapped around an analogue bass riff and synth stabs, it’s techy drums keep building to a vocal sample that gives it that all-important feeling. The track twists and turns with builds and drops for aces high dancefloor dynamics.
Next up, Zazous takes up Joe’s trademark Balearic signature sound with warm pads, drums and a touch of old school. Synth strings, washes, arps and stabs let the track ebb and flow like the Med lapping at your feet with a sundowner in your hand!
Sky Drops slows things down a notch but keeps it Balearic. Again taking it’s influence from the golden era of house, it’s the sound of Ibiza in the 90s when optimism and smiling faces were all that counted. Lush chords, strings and pianos immerse you in a world where all is good and pulsing to a house beat.
Laurent Garnier – Emoional deep moody tracks, great EP! Will play for sure!
Psychemagik – Will play out for sure!

Richard Seaborne – Girl Music EP
1. Date Night
2. I Know You Love Me
3. Belle Choses
Richard Seaborne is back with a three track EP that oozes deep disco and demonstrating why he is a producer to watch. Always armed with an unexpected vocal and crisp production, big things are round the corner.
Richard first appeared on Paper with The Reasons Why. It was deadpan take-down of a former lover that rocked the floors of Aeroplane, Horsemeat Disco, Doc Martin, Roberto Rodriguez, Eric Duncan and Tensnake to name just a few.
Date Night kicks things off and is a hypnotic deep house nagger with a recurring delayed synth stab that filters in and out. Set over Richard’s swinging drums it works the groove with a crushed vocal to add melody and intrigue. Suitable for beard strokers and disco queens alike.
I Know You Love Me has gorgeous reverbed percussion over disco beats and a feel good sample. Add an easy listening vocal that sounds like it’s never belonged anywhere else and you’ve got a timeless track that is deceptively deadly!
To round things off Belle Choses finds it’s groove in a locked down disco sample and drives that bad boy all the way home! With live broken house beats it draws you in with it’s repetitiveness, off set by filtering, disco toms, camp vocal, samples and efx firing off for detonation!
Tensnake – “usual quality form paper, nice deep house disco hybrid, I know You Love Me is sweet”
Hot Toddy (Crazy P) – “Great ep from Richard, “I KNow You Love Me”, is my pick”
Jim Baron (Crazy P) – “me choses belle choses!”

Simon Wright (Data Transmission) – “Oh oh oh, now this reminds of classic Paper of old. Nice one.”
Helene DJ Mag – “I heart Richard Seaborne’s tunes! ‘Date Night’ rocks!”
Sam Devine (Defected) – “like that, really nice!”
Cowbell Radio – “Solid release, love the vocals and the samples and pretty much anything released by Richard. Date Night probably the most dancefloor friendly, I know you love me definitely the most catchy!”

Chris Da Mentalist – “As always paper delivers the goods to a high standard. Love Belle Choses”
Justin Harris feat. Laura Vane – 1,2 3 Breathe
2. House Mix
3. House Dub
4. Down Tempo Mix
Justin Harris, an acid house warrior since 1987 finally arrives on Paper with his debut release 1,2,3 Breathe. His CV boasts gigs at clubs like Panorama Bar, Fabric, The End, Back To Basics and Robert Johnson and remixes for The Human League, Tiefshwartz and Mathew Herbert on labels like Classic, SWAG, Crosstown Rebels and 20 20 Vision. Amongst his many collaborations, Freaks with Luke Solomon is best know for their leftfield take on house and groundbreaking label MFF.
Breathe 1,2,3 is deep house with a soul that has a stamp of quality running through it like a stick of Blackpool rock. Minimal drums, analogue bass, piano and synth strings set things up for Laura Vane’s heart felt and timeless vocals.
The house mix ups drive and tempo but retains the deepness. Along with additional classic house stabs, the piano and strings give the track some nice chord progressions as the vocals tell their story.
The dub strips things back even more with the vocal stabbing and out as the music unfolds.
Finally, the down tempo mix breaks things right down for a lush version that aims at the hairs on your back of you neck and hits.
Sean Johnston (A Love From Outer Space) – Very good indeed!
Sleazy McQueen -I ‘m feeling the midtempo vibes, for sure!
Nick Holder (DNH) – Im digging this!

Sam Divine (Defected) – Very good!
Richard Seaborne – The Reasons Why
2. Flash Atkins Mix
3. Sleazy McQueen Mix
4. Leon Sweet’s Negative Positive Dub Mix
Richard Seaborne has been described as “ginger and hard partying”. Quite what this means to the music he makes we don’t know but it could be important at some point. The Reasons Why is his debut for Paper Recordings and has been catching the attention on Soundcloud of the likes of Bill Brewster, Cosmic Boogie and Faith’s Dave Jarvis.
The original is a low-slung slice of garage disco that could have come out of NYC in the mid-90s. It’s got nagging percussion, a super heavy kick, driving hats and wobbling sub all wrapped round a chunky sample. The deadpan vocals are a take-down of a former lover and there’s something of the drag queen scene in it’s pithy bitchiness and attitude.
Flash Atkins takes it deep and dancefloor for a heads down main room shoe shuffler. It’s tribal and hypnotic with analogue synths washing in and out while the shifting bass takes centre stage as the vocals tell their story.
Next up Sleazy McQueen brings out The Reasons Why’s disco heart with a mix that sounds like a mirror ball on a Saturday night. With a popping Orange Juice bass circa Rip It Up, synth toms, that sample and classic house piano it’s modern disco at it’s best
Another new signing Leon Sweet brings his own pitched-down bottom heavy chugging sensibility to the table. He nags the vocal in before the tech bass sets off and the track builds with congas and acid line in to a reverbed big floor head-masher
Finally, the instrumental finished things off for those allergic to vocals.
Doc Martin – Viva le Paper!
Drop Out Orchestra – Flash Atkins does it again!!!
Tensnake – Nice single, my favourite is the Sleazy Mcqueen remix.

Paper has been pushing all things deep house and disco from the furthest reaches of the world via the good old North of England since the early Nineties.
