BG Baarregaard – Aalone EP

Icelandic groove warrior B.G. Baarregaard is back on Paper Disco with an EP written after a move to the Norwegian town of Aal. Avoiding the use of samples it’s modern flipped out good time music for feet and floors wherever they may be.

AMR is modern disco with a popping NRG acid bass, funky keys, some Nile guitar and everything you need for a disco ball moment. Just when you think you’ve got it nailed the chord changes and off it goes again.

From the first bass and chords of Kulturhuset you know summer is well and truly on the way. If house music wore a grin then this would have one a mile wide. Stabbing chords, jumping drums and tuned percussion bring the sunshine.

Finally Mestringskatten is the deepest track of the package but still has that 80s synth sound. It’s in beach bar mode with plenty of twinkling and balearic sensibility ideal for sinking a Pina Colada on the Adriatic. So when you’re sat there thinking I know this this one, well this is it!

Yam Who? : “Bjorn providing the special goody bag!”

Sleazy McQueen : “My favorite Iceland-cum-Ål transplant is quite at home surrounded by icy soundscapes, bouncing, round bass and latin percussion. It’s a treat to hear him develop as an artist through the years.”

Fingerman: “Nice chuggy numbers. Kulturhuset stands out for me. First rate :)”

Get Down Edits: “Proper, This is cosmic disco at its best, top quality!”

Daco “Great EP with lots of bounce!”

ROBOT 84 : “Nice summer vibes!”

Chris Massey Music: “Mastringskattan sounding cooler than a Calippo Cucumber here….full support and will give this a few trial runs”

Cosmic Capers Radio Show : “Mestringskattens cosmic swirls gets the vote for me on this one, nice tune.”

Pete Herbert : “Love ’em”

Bad Barbie : Lovely laid back summer meanderings”

Neil Diablo : “Sexy ep! amr is my favorite”

Flash Atkin – The Life and Remixes

2015 saw Flash Atkins release his debut album ‘The Life and Times’ and it’s mix of club smashers and disco nodders found people like FK, Andrew Weatherall, Horse Meat Disco, Ivan Smagghe, Rune Lindbaek and Bill Brewster getting hot under the collar.

Now comes the remix album with a collection of tracks some of which have only been out on vinyl and some not at all. It’s a roll call of who’s doing it right at the moment from the well known to the up and coming but all nail it. Names include The Revenge, The Emperor Machine, Sleazy McQueen, Pete Herbert, Tal M. Klein and Steve Cobby. Plus there’s a healthy representation from Norway in the form of Ralph Myerz, B.G.Baarregaard and Mental Overdrive. From the paper stable Leon Sweet, Doc L. Jnr step up and the elusive Jamie L turns out a 12 minute Detroit (by way of Halifax) monster.

So you’ve played the game, drunk the beer, danced to the tunes, read the fanzine, rolled your eyes at the middle aged man in tights and now you’ve got the remix album. Job done.

Craig Bratley – Great set of remixes, hard to pick a favourite.

Bill Brewster – Outstanding mixes from The Revenge and E Machine.

Sean Johnston (ALFOS) – Fantastic package – rinsed about four at ALFOS on Saturday.

Trash The Wax # 3

Our collection of the finest dance floor detonators returns for a third helping and on this hat trick appearance we welcome new friends to the fold alongside some of Paper’s tried & tested boogie constructors.

Volume 2 featured in sets from respected selectors such as Maurice Fulton, The Unabombers, Ray Mang, Pete Herbert, Chris Duckenfield, Fingerman & Leftside Wobble (amongst many) and blazed it’s way to the top of the Juno charts. Leon Sweet’s Sunny Bigler became undoubtedly THE track of the Summer and was heard at Electric Elephant, The Garden Festival, Festival Number 6, The Warehouse Project, BBC6 Music and was Mixmag’s ‘Tune Of The Month”.

Volume 3 keeps on keeping on with some fresh faces but seasoned producers none the less; Julian Sanza, Red Rack’em, Get Down Edits & Kohib all provide killer cuts alongside members of the Paper family such as Kooky & Damoon, Rave-enka, Beat Boy, Robot 84, Flash Atkins with Crazy P’s Danielle Moore plus Chris Massey who debuts the birth of a new collaboration project with Homoelectric’s Will Tramp.

New blood comes from Kohib, Gold Boy, Spiral, Skinny Dipp, DJ Steevo, Smashed Atoms & Spleen Underground who all make their presence well & truly known.

From chopped up disco & mutant boogie to peak time smashers & after party crashers, prepare for Trash The Wax 3 and hold tight!

Kimo – Kindara EP

The global sound of house music is alive and well and here’s the proof with our first signing from Indonesia. Double Deer’s Kimo brings four tracks of crisp deepness and vibe heavy disco that absolutely smashes it.

First up Born Out is a bonafide disco thumper that builds around live drums, a nagging disco bass and acid line before the tension is released to an incessant piano riff and swooping strings. Then it’s mayhem as the chord changes and arps add to the mix as it drives to the peak. This has been road tested by the Paper DJs over the past few months and never fails to take the roof off.

Bow Down is a change of pace and features Kal with a super hooky vocal. It’s a fusion of the Far East and balearica with Kimo’s trademark arps and dance floor dynamics. There are guitars and synth lines a plenty plus Rhodes and live drums that steadily suck you in to a hazy world of space disco.

Whirl takes a more hypnotic route that is nailed down by a cowbell and analogue bass. Gamelan steel drums give it that evocative Eastern flavour as it hypnotises you in to a delayed break when things get serious. The riff keeps on with leads, pads and synths for a track that is fresh, dancefloor heavy and dripping in atmosphere.

Finally First Kick is a more straight forward house track with a riffing organ that develops in to pushing synth and walking bass for middle of the night head down tackle.

Justin Robertson – Fabulous EP… all cracking.

Bill Brewster – Like Born Out, will definitely use that.

Sean Johnston (ALFOS / Hardway Bros) – Nicemoments on this ep

Billy Scurry – Aceness!! Think Bow down might be a bit of a slow grower and stay in the playlist for a bit.

Julian Sanza – Loving the vocal track.

Neil Quigley – Born Out and Whirl are right up my street, thanks again Paper HQ.

Fingerman – Awesome release!

Aldrin Zouk – Nice EP. Diggin’ Born Out, Bow Down & Whirl.

DJ Rocca – Full support

Sam Divine (Defected) – Nice release! Like Whirl! thanks.

Rev Milo – Cracking chuggers! gREAT TO HAVE TUNES THAT HAVE A DYNAMIC AND TAKE YOU SOMEWHERE- SORRY for shouting!

Bad Barbiebeats – Chuggy, deep and lovely

Neil Diablo – Love this! the whole ep is great but Bow Down is the winner

80s Child – Right up my street!

Murray Richardson – Smashing release from Kimo, especially finding the Born Out & Whirl tracks especially smashing

Robot 84 – All the tracks are winners, great release.

Leon Sweet – Born Out is an absolute stonker. Super strong debut on Paper, top work all round.

Rave-enka – Bow Down is so very, very nice!

Nuno Cacho – This is SO PAPER… Love it. I will open my Boiller room with this.

George Summers (Midnight Riot) – Yes…all good.

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – Holy Fucknuts Batman…Born Out is a bona fide monster!!!

Wrighty (Soul Buggin’) – hooked from the off of Born Out, great groove. Loving the after party feel of Bow Down too.

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.

Tronik Youth – Nice mix from Goshawk.

Dicky Trisco – Loving the squelchy funk on that original. Thanks!

Bottin’ – Alkalino dub + Love Drop are the best ones.

Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) – Great Alaklino remix.

George Summers (Midnight Riot) – Top tunes.

Bogdan Taran – Alkalino dub is very cool easy listening house music.

Deep South Audio – Cool .. slinky sleazy disco kicks …nice.

Leri Ahel (Mutant DIsco Radio Show) – All about Love Drop remix for me.

Somerville & Wilson – Fresh perfect vibes for our upcoming Splash Pool Party gig at Tropical Fruits New years day

This Is Why We Dance – Liking Goshawk mix best on first hearing.

Pathaan – DIG!

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – Original does the biz for me, Goshawk a close second and when Summer finally re-appears I’ll be playing and enjoying the Love Drop remix!

Jamie Bull – This is great. I’ve featured it in my upcoming radio show on thisiselectric.co.uk The Vampire Disco mix is the one I’ll be playing.

DJ Wrighty – Nice package, love the original and tough to pick a favourite mix out of Goshawk or Vampire Disco

Que Sakamoto – Great. I luv original.uv to play this weekend.

Leon Sweet – Sunny Bigler

One of Paper Disco’s biggest tunes of this year has been given the all star re-rub treatment and it’s a full house of dancefloor dynamite.

The original has been rocking the boxes of the great and the good since it was out last year on Trash The Wax # 2 and Luke Una Bomber played it last month on 6 the Music MIF special as Manchester’s hot tune of the moment as well as Nemone on Electric Ladyland.

Leftside Wobble delivers an absolute monster that has been doing some serious damage with the few jocks who have fandangled a copy. Bill Brewster dropped it in his closing Wildlife set and Chris Duckenfield has been pressing the launch button. We’re talking a warehouse vibe with an arp riffed bass, plenty of reverb and the filtered, plaintive vocal giving it that emotional depth that all the best house music has. Make no mistake, this is one heavy remix.

Florida’s King of Disco Sleazy McQueen introduces a rolling bass, congas and some cheeky attitude for a stripped back joint that will smoke the floor. Add the vocal with subtle hypnotics from the original and it’s a late night, low ceiling, dry ice moment.

OOFT!:
“Leftside Wobble remix = LARGE”

Hot Toddy:
“Yea love this, very very playable, all mixes are good but i think i prefer the original”

Sam Divine:
“Great remixes, but i like original mix! thanks”

Julian Sanza:
“Yeah, feeling it, Big release!”

Justin Harris:
“Original and Sleazy mix standing out for me – thanks”

Neil Diablo:
“Well ravey! Original is still the best but i like the Chicken Lips-ie vibe to Leftside Wobble’s remix. Sleazy Mcqueen mix is cool too”

Gemini Brothers :
“Proper summer release! Thanks guys! Love “Peza” work but all the release is amazing!”

Robot 84 :
“Great set of remixes, still think the original is pretty hard to beat… Peza mix is doing it for me!!!”

Sean Johnston (ALFOS):
“Oh yes!”

Get Down Edits :
“Have been playing the original for so long & its so so good x”

Dicky Trisco :
“Tasty tune. I’ll go for the Fingerman mix here. Thanks!”

Danielle Moore (Crazy P) :
“Shit did I mss this first time round then. GUTTED> Fabulous strong pounding great vox EVERYTHING good. Thank you …like the original !x”

Doc L. Jnr – Twilight

Ralph Myerz – “The original is a brilliant piece of true house music. Theres been a lot of throwback jams lately but far from as real as this. Doc L Junior makes me happy! Beyond full support! Also digging the remix, huge fan of Mr Hulkkonen!”

Sleazy McQueen – “Super cool vibes from the Arctic Circle!”

Sam Devine – “Nice! Will play original mix”

Dean “Sunshine” Smith – “Original mix for me it bumps along nicely. In certain surroundings and situations just how I like it…nice n wonky!”

Como Las Grecas Magazine – “Geat Jori, always a master…..”

Kooky & Damoon – The Kooky & Damoon EP

After appearing on Trash The Wax 2, Kooky & Damoon drop their debut EP for Paper Disco and what a big badass booty shaker it is!

Loving Me Now starts things off across a section of horns, guitars & rumbling bass that will make you slug back the last of your pina colada, jump in the Quattro and head on down to the Pink Flamingo club to command a spot on the dance floor. Sleaze disco from a forgotten cop show never sounded so ace!

Good For You takes things to stage 2 of the night and right from the off its a handful of veras and a serious wiggle to the full bodied twanging bassline, hooky vox and guitar that sounds like Nile Rogers in the zone.

Remix action comes from Paper’s long lost brother Neil Diablo who goes for a classic dub on Loving Me Now. It uses less of the vocal and giving the instrumental arrangement room to shine, makes this perfect for the jocks that prefer their disco spaced out.

Loving Me Now also gets a workout from new kid on the block Dan Wainwright who covers it in microdots & stewed mushrooms for a full on psych wig out complete with acid squelch, reverb & delay drenched whooshes & swooshes. There’s enough weirdness to make you ring deed poll and change your name to Rainbow.

Hot Toddy:
“Good For You is fav of the 2. Nice mid tempo warmer upper!”

DJ Rocca:
“Groovy modern disco indeed!”

Fingerman:
“Nice release. The slow burn of Good For You is the one for me here. Neil’s Dub is a bit tasty too.”

Tronik Youth:
“Dan Wainright mix for me…good stuff!”

Will Tramp:
“Love the EP. Will definitely be playing ‘Good for you’ & ‘Loving me now’ this weekend. That bass is so god damn funky!”

Somerville & Wilson:
“Funky spicy boogie disco :-)”

Robot 84:
“Nice EP, really diggin the two remixes by Neil and Dan. Full support on this one!”

80’s Child:
“Another fine release from the Paper crew, all tracks are wicked but Good For You stands out the most here, Very cool & funky!!”

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’

Billy Scurry – ‘Great vibes and production all round!’

Pete Herbert – ‘Excellent!’

Nutritious – ‘Yes! So good!!!’

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

2 Billion Beats – Revolutions / Warm Feeling

It’s been a long time coming but 2 Billion Beats’ debut album is ready to pop and here’s the second EP to be taken from it.

Revolutions struts its way onto the dance floor for a track that is deep, solid and aimed squarely between the eyes. It features some heavy cosmic squelches & squeaks before an arp hits to shift things up a gear to the setting marked ‘heavy”. This will take you to the stars & back whilst stopping off in the basements for a top up.

Warm Feeling is a melting pot of jacking-disco-jazz tinged house music with the silky vocals of Dieter that perfectly partners up with the soaring pads, busty Rhodes & firecracker percussion. It delivers a surefire selection for all the party jocks.

Norway’s Magnus International steps in fresh from one of the albums of the year on Prins Thomas’ Full Pupp . He takes Revolutions and straddles techno and house for a mix that is pure peak time heads down tackle for tougher floors.

Finally Italy’s DJ Steevo goes full on dance floor nu-disco shaker for his mix of Warm Feeling. He takes the B-line in to an NRG direction, thumps the drums and lets the Rhodes do it’s work whilst using synths and delayed vocals to give the track dynamics.

Justin Robertson: “Top stuff on the Magnus remix”

Mugwump: “Loving the original of Revolutions”

Sean Johnston/Hardway Bros: “DJ Steevo doing the biz!”

Discodromo: “Great! love the Magnus International remix”

Alkalino: “Revolutions original and Magnus International Remix are the ones for me, thks!”

DJ Rocca: “Really like it, especially the Magnus International remix”

Fingerman: “Great stuff! Loving the remixes too! Roll on the LP :)”

Reza Attar: “Love the DJ Steevo mix!”

DJ Paulette: “Revolutions – Hot Since 82 must surely be peeing his pants over this one! Warm Feeling is a curve ball – wonky synth disco.
Revolutions – is a loopfest for dark corners and the DJ Steevo remix is a slo-mo disco banger!”

Duncan Gray: “Wow, loving that Magnus remix of Revolutions. nice one. thanks!”

Ed Mahon (Cowbbell Radio) : “Revolutions is a sure fire winner, big hit on dancefloors! Loving the DJ Steevo remix of Warm Feeling too, excellent stuff! Welcome back”

Rave-enka – Rett I Kroppen EP

Noway keep coming up with producers who offer something fresh and exciting in a world where rave by numbers is often the norm. The next one to look out for is De Fantastiske To’s Rave-enka who mixes up techno, house and disco into a unique arctic stew as this EP perfectly demonstrates.

Rett I Kroppen is an epic disco-tech number purpose built from the ground up for maximum dance floor damage. It’s all about the release and build of the horn and string heavy sample for a track that can cross genres and comes off like a Paperclip People for 2016.

Honningen is just perfect house music; using the raw ingredients of a groove that swings and sample it demonstrates why the best ideas are often the simplest. Add in an arp, some filtering, a dash of Detroit plus dynamics and you have something that sounds like a Scandinavian Moodymann track.

Rett I Fletta brings in a 90s Strictly vibe but keeps things stripped back. Garage drums and analogue bass drive it along before cutting to a pure NYC synth stab for a Sound Factory Bar kind of joint.

Finally, the man who can, Richard Seaborne takes Honningen and beefs things up. With added vocal samples there is no way this can miss and he takes it back to a similar place as his Todd Terje and Tensnake rocking Is This Acid? Expect similar results.

Rave-enka is busy in his bunker recording us an album so expect more block rockers in 2016.

Mark Farina – “Dig these”

Justin Robertson – Great release”

Sleazy McQueen – “Too far gone, Norway back”

Harri (Sub CLub) – “Liking a few of these, full support”
