Future Disco Vol. 9 – A Disco Love Affair

Flash Atkins appears on this compilation with an exclusive edit made especially for the project of his Drug Empire tune. It’s a compelling ride that proves that disco lives on!

Flash Goes North

Here’s what happens when the blaggard and drunkard pops out for a pack of fags in Manchester.
England’s loss is Norway’s gain!

Drug Empire Stems

Drug Empire has been one of the best received tracks off Flash Atkins’ ‘The Life and Times’ album with Giles Peterson playing it on his Worldwide 2015 all winners show.
Now he’s put up the links up for studio types to get their mitts on.

FLASH ATKINS – VINYL SAMPLER # 2

Life and Times” album on Paper Recordings.  This time he pulls in three of the world’s best producers of underground future disco and all of them step up the the plate to score a bullseye with their first throw.

First up The Emperor Machine has taken Summer of Love to analogue heaven with arps, heavily treated vocals, electro bass and wacked out beats.  The track’s stripped back dynamics keep changing as it’s deep drug chug rocks out for over 10 sublime proto-disco minutes.

Man of the moment Fila Brazilia’s Steve Cobby is enjoying a renaissance after two albums that have ruled 2014 / 15.  On Forbidden Flesh he takes Crazy P’s Danielle Moore’s vocals and lays them over a soulful techy track that will fit any after dark occasion with devastating results.  And it’s got loads of cowbell.

After the veterans it’s time for a young gun to nail his colours to the mast.  Iceland’s B.G.Baarregaard has been one to watch and his blend of good time disco has been lining him up as Todd Terje’s heir apparent. His remix of Badger From The North is peak-time nu-disco that wears it’s musicality lightly and sacrifices nothing for sheer playability.

Overall, a 12” that takes the Flash Atkins originals and breathes new life in to them for three cuts that will smash anything they’re thrown at.

Ricard Seaborne – Let’s Get Serious

Leeds’ finest is back on Paper with an EP showing off his chops as a producer on his uppers backed up by two remixes that have gone for the jugular and got a clean bite.

The original is an 80s influenced deep houser that will sound equally at home on a beach at sunset in the adriatic, bass quaking a festival rig or on a European motorway at 3am. With synth washes and a filtered riff it hypnotises it’s way to a state of balearic dancefloor heaven.

Renata takes it’s pointers from the mid-90s with a pad bringing to mind a time when acid house was getting it’s feet under the table. Add a big synth lead, stabby bass, strings and the spirit of the Beloved and Sub Sub is summoned up for the 00s.

In a game of two halves (Brian) Flash Atkins’ mix is all about the build. The deep and techy first section rides the one note bass and filtered synth with added Moog. It’s a steady reach for the break when things get kicked loose as the track is taken down to it’s raw elements. The bass changes and things are built back up synth by synth. Once it reaches it’s peak, take cover or you’re liable to get injured in the maelstrom.

Mark Farina:
” Yes..like em!”

Justin Harris:
“Nice EP – well done mate :)”

Danielle Moore (Crazy P):
“The original and Flash are the ones for me.”

Gemini Brothers (Nein):
“Flash Atkins as always a top master!

“Very good release. Renata, what a track!”

Mutant Disco Radio:

Tici Taci Music:
“Another quality release from Paper. Loving the original and the Flash remix of “Serious”. (The breakdown in Flash’ version is sublime).”

Ralph Myerz:”Very very nice stuff from Mr. Seaborne who always delivers the goods, full support! Really diggin Let’s Get Serious, will play A LOT this summer. All mixes are superb!”

Rave-enka:
“Amazing! Am loving “Renata” to bits, easily one of the best tunes I’ve heard in a long time. Full support!”

2 Billion Beats:
“Renata for me, reminds me of early Leftfield, awesome!”

Danny Oliver (High Soul Society):
“Love Flash Atkins Mix….perfect for my sets. Support”
