Paper labellers Crazy P kick off their Nu Disco Show for Ministry of Sound with Proviant Audio’s Hey, Lets Do It! followed third track by Daco’s Drip Dry.
It’s pretty hard to take seriously a recording credited to Crazy Penis but, in fact, the group’s A Nice Hot Edit With … is seriously good. The band’s A Nice Hot Bath With … appeared in 1999, so it’s no great surprise to hear the 2010 re-work sound so deliciously old-school; in short, if you’re a fan of Yore’s deep, neo-classic sound and the idea of a vocal-less Chic likewise strikes your fancy, you’ll likely cotton to A Nice Hot Edit With just as much.

‘A Nice Hot Edit With – Sampler 3’
The third and final sampler from Crazy Penis’ ‘A Nice Hot Edit with’ album.
Crazy Penis’ debut album ‘A Nice Hot Bath With’ was one of the long players of 1999 and still holds a special place in many people’s memory, now in 2010 Paper have decided to hand over the tracks from this album to some of their favourite producers out there and as such have created the marvellous ‘A Nice Hot Edit with’.
For the final instalment Crazy P step up themselves to remix the excellent ‘Do it Good’, making the most of the fact that they manage to salvage the original parts by creating a brilliant disco fuelled, breakbeat driven anthem. Funk laden bass and tinkling Rhodes piano keys intertwine with tight guitar licks to form the basis for this superb re-invention of one of their favourite cuts.
On the flip the respected production duo Yam Who? take the reins and turn in a sublime edit of ‘Omega Man’ , taking the soulful funk of the original and twisting it into a nu-disco classic to keep the winter fires burning bright.
Crispin Dior : Yam Who daddy all the way here. love the balance between kick and snare.
Sebastian Döring : Wicked sampler! Yam Who’s mix is my choice!
Matthew Kryskot : I thought they no longer had a Penis?… will play Do It Go for sure.
Ryan Cavanagh (Wolf + Lamb) : Lovin both sides! Super Funk!
James Teej : Very cool package, loved this series
Chris Duckenfield : Probably my favourite one yet !
The Revenge : You can’t knock ‘The P’ … 21st century slap and tickle. Nice.
Disco Bloodbath : Loving Omega man….deepness! Delay central
Eric Duncan (Rub N Tug) : Sounds good
Jay Tripwire : This is awesome..just fucking awesome.
Jimpster : Both tracks are great but will get most plays out of Omega Man i reckon.
6th Borough Project : Liking both disco fuelled edits.
Yannick Labbé : Yam Who Edit all the way! great work! Love it!
Pete Herbert : Yes indeed some hot edit actione! very handy, will be dropping these for sure….
Faze Action : Nice work can use both of these full support from The Faze camp
DiskJokke : Love the Yam Who edit, flows beautifully
Ashley Beedle : A nice couple indeed. The Yam Who comes out on top but will be definitely playing both tunes.
In SD’s opinion – and we agree, the January blues are rather overrated, having spent 3 weeks on the Atkins diet, it’s time to rip up that gym membership, hop off that wagon again and head to the Horse & Groom for a guaranteed January blues buster of a night. Their special guest is none other than Hot Toddy.
Get your shakin’ asses down there.

‘Make Your Move
(b/w Atjazz and Ashley Beedle Rmxs)
The Superhero past his prime, Flash Atkins is back with a timeless release of deep slow burning soul that shows off his chops as a producer and is backed with some heavyweight mixes to boot. Featuring Crazy P’s Danielle Moore at her sultry best, the original has live bass, drums, guitar, horns and guitar plus Rhodes and electronics all wrapped up in a killer 90BPM 4/4 groove.
Atjazz pitches things up for some classic deep house in his own inimitable style, laying down an afro groove, shuffling percussion, gorgeous pads and keys that taunt and tease before the bass hits. He then brings out the heart and soul of the song before taking out the bass and stripping it back down to create a hypnotic middle section reminiscent of Global Underground’s The Way. The bass and keys then re-emerge for the soulful end….ahhhhh.
Ashley Beedle, a man who’s had his sticky paws in some of the best dance music of the past twenty years takes the track in a psychedelic rock direction. He gives it a heavyweight drum groove and showcases Danielle’s vocals, using plenty of the original parts but adding some heavily effected guitars and percussion to superb effect.
The Reprise strips the original mix of all its beats and let’s Danielle’s vocals soar over the Rhodes; and finally Atjazz and Ashley Beedle’s dubs are included for those allergic to vocals!
Overall a release of incredibly high quality that sees Flash Akins coming of age.
