Mezman – Le Deepend

We’re getting prepped & ready to leave the cold Winter nights behind us with these two cuts from Mezman.

Le Deepend filters into action as soon as you press play and much like its partner on this EP it’s got a warm & throbbing low end in spades. A simple loop is used to great effect with a subtle & cleverly used Aretha vocal to give it that little bit of extra disco dust.

Heatwave gets into action right from the off with a slap bass thats packs enough wobble to make Larry Graham proud. It’s classic jacked out disco percussion cracks in all the right places before we’re treated to a hell of a breakdown that builds before dropping right back in to the good stuff.

Both tracks are certified killers and pack a shallop when they’ve been dropping at Paper parties.

De Fantastiske To – Smile EP

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.

Ralph Myerz – Awesome EP from an awesome duo that I strongly believe have a bright future in front of them. All traxx are great, very hard to pick a favourite.

Richard Seaborne – Girl Music EP

PAPDLS152

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”

Chris Da Mentalist – “As always paper delivers the goods to a high standard. Love Belle Choses”

2 Billion Beats – Noise In Your Eye / Full Moon Boogie

Here is the first EP in a double header to mark Paper’s 150th single release.

2 Billion Beats’ Tom and Col have been sat in their studio wearing Day-Glo and high tops waiting for the invention of the hoverboard to no avail. So to kill time they cranked up their collection of 80s synths, set to work and came up with a couple of tracks that could soundtrack Summer 2013.

Noise In Your Eye is a BIG floor disco track that plugs an LCD Soundsystem shaped hole. So much so that it was played by James Murphy at The Warehouse Project this Christmas. The mystery is, nobody knew how he got hold of it but a wayward licensing CD is thought to be the culprit!

Heavy 4/4 beats and a locked down bass start things off before the piano is intro-ed, followed by strings and the sample weaving it’s way in and out. With synth noodlings, the track keeps building before it breaks for the chord change and all sorts of mayhem breaks out.

Full Moon Boogie is on a similar tip of 80s inspired disco and it’s all about the piano at the end. A stuttering synth bass and nagging top line build tension until 2/3rds through when it drops to a piano that’s been nicked from the middle of The Hacienda’s dancefloor at 1.30am on a Saturday night in 1993.

Ralph Myerz – REALLY digging Noise In Your Eye. I’m a huge fan of 2 Billion Beats but really feel that they have taken their stuff to the next level with this release. Full support from me for a looooong time!

The Glimmers – Love it!

Tensnake – Both tracks deliver, nice disco jams

Eric Duncan – Really FUN!! Will play both.

Hot Toddy (Crazy P) – Noise in Your Ear pushes all the right Nu Disco buttons!

Dave Jarvis (Faith) – Oh yes! Ready for the Garden Festival Croatia 2013 Faith boat action!!!!!! Bring it on!]

Drop Out Orchestra – Great groover.

The Dead Rose Music Company – Boogie goodness!!!

Aeroplane – Cool release!

Rocky (X-Press 2) – Nice! Noise In Your Eye is my fave.

Will Tramp (Homoelectric) – Fantastic EP! Love both tracks.

Sleazy McQueen – I’m totally into Noises in my Eye!

Cowbell Radio – Two of the best tunes of 2013, no doubt, both have been massive on Cowbell. Noise in your Eye just gets the nod, but Full Moon Boogie is a proper ‘break glass in case of emergency’ dance-floor filler! Amazing work fellas!

Severino Panzetta (Horsemeat Disco) – Pretty cool.

Ryan Cavanagh – Nice release, love both.

Daniel Solar – Noise in your Eye for me.

Wrighty (Soul Buggin) – Noise In Your Eye has got Soul Buggin’ written all over it, nice work.

Mugwump – Great piano boogie biz.

Get Down Edits – Excellent Release, Full Moon Boogie is gonna be the dancefloors friend for sure.

Joe Morris (Clandestino) – These are massive! Got electric elephant written all over them, which as luck would have it Im playing at so Ill defo give them an airing chaps

Stuart Knight (Toolroom) – Whos nicked my lino!!! This shit makes me want to do a back spin…Full Moon Boogie is the one for me…more quality from the PAPER crew …Nice

Richard Seaborne – The Reasons Why

PAPD47

Richard Seaborne – The Reasons Why

1. Original
2. Flash Atkins Mix
3. Sleazy McQueen Mix
4. Leon Sweet’s Negative Positive Dub Mix
5. Instrumental

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.
