EXCLUSIVES

papercuts #3

It’s been a while since the last Paper Cuts so we’ve got a stockpile of bonafide, road tested bombs that hit every every button labeled ‘rave’. From subterranean acid to disco bangers, it’s a collection that stretches two and half years at the coal face of house.

From Norway we have Ralph Myerz‘s epic fourteen minute ‘Acid 4 Eddie’, Tromsø legend Doc L Jnr’s wonky ‘Twilight’, Diskobeistet’s nu-disco ‘Birkelunden’ and ‘Gammal Morro’ plus young guns Rave-Enka and De Fantastiske To. Closer to home the Flash Atkins Gilles Peterson endorsed ‘Drug Empire’ and Andrew Weatherall favourite ‘Acid House Creator’ make an appearance, Daco brings his nu tech-soul and 2 Billion Beats do their thing. Kit Tacchini goes deep, Kimo shows his colours as one to watch, Weedyman drives it home and Chris Massey’s mix of Richard Seaborne still does damage.

We’ve also got exclusives from Neil Quigley and Mezman who take things deep and dance floor plus Leon Sweet’s Zed that walks the line between disco, techno, house and old school beautifully.

Overall it’s a damn fine snapshot of where the label has been and where it’s going with music that no discerning DJ should be without.

Paper Recordings….the story continues.

Kit Tacchini – Keep It Down / La Parisian

Kit Tacchini – Keep It Down / La Parisian

1. Keep It Down
2. La Parisian

Sometimes music lands at Paper Towers with no intro or info but it blows our little socks off. This was one of those rare occasions. And the mystery deepens because we have no more information now than the email address we got it from.

Is it Burial? Is it Lord Lucan? Is it John Prescott? Is it Pauline Prescott?! Time will tell but what we do know is that we’ve got two tracks that are club dynamite!

Keep It Down has elements of 80s disco in the big snare and drums but with a bass ripped out the heart of a Moog. Add delayed synths, fills and vocal snippets and it’s a super-heavy peak time basement floor rocker!

La Parisian takes things down a deeper notch with a bumping bass and shuffling, jacking drums. Add 808 handclaps and synth stabs that build and drop and it’s phuture house that acknowledges what has been before but looking firmly front.
