J.Cub & Lil’ Mark – WSM EP

J.Cub & Lil’ Mark have teamed up for three cuts of deep house that sound like they were made specifically for our Paper. Those who know the catalogue will hear flavours of Kenny Hawkes, Head Nodding Society and Dirty Jesus.

J.Cub is man about Leeds town and club owner as well as being one of the people behind Baker Street Records before leaving to concentrate on Eclectic Avenue Records. Lil’ Mark has been releasing records on labels Classic, MFF and Greenkeepers and been championed by jocks like Derrick Carter.

No Time is a shuffling groove with a grinding bassline, subtle sample and minimal keys. That is all the best house music needs and this sucks you in to its hypnotic grasp.

Next up Dark Days has a techier feel with a more straight up swing and digi bass that is layered up with an effected marimba and EFX. Again its all about sticking with the groove as it draws you in but things are keep interesting with the pad that filters in and out along with tripped out vocals

The Dark Dub strips things back even further for trippy house business!

Soul Clap – Classy for dat ass-y. Truly house music!

Ron Basejam (Crazy P) – No time works every time.

Moodymanc – Stellar stuff from two of the best smelling men in modern house music.

Farley Silvester – After Hours

PAPDL46

Farley Silvester

After Hours

1. Original Mix
2. Early Mix
3. Late Mix

Two bona-fide heavyweights of the dance scene return to Paper with their second release after last year’s Jam Down Beat Down. Terry Farley helped write the book on acid house and continues to fly the flag for all things quality through Faith and the Boys Own parties. Stretch Silvester is involved with music for fashion and ads as well as concentrating on his “Bring Back The Future” boogie record label.

After Hours is dubbed out peak-time house music that arrives with a thump. The original takes the nagging “after hours “ vocal and sets it over a bouncing sub. Rattling drums keep it driving along along with tripped out keys.

The early mix strips things back with a more wild-pitch bent. Reverbs are used to bring out the drops and that sub keeps bouncing along.

Finally the late mix replaces the bass with a more analogue line and brings in some extra synths. It’s a fine package of quality house music that Stretch and Terry Farley have built their reputation on.

FLASH ATKINS – THE IN CROWD / FLASH’S THEME

Proviant Audio – Hey Lets Do It! by Paper Recordings

Flash Atkins – Flash’s Theme by Flash Atkins

We Are Woodville and Paper Recordings’ very own loser super hero Flash Atkins returns to centre stage with another genre-busting EP on We Are Woodville and two brand new cuts that delve deep into the realms of nu disco.

The In Crowd is a chunky and chugging groove laden number based round a hefty Roxy Music sample. It’s got some heavy synths, a big break and is a perfect peaktime roof raiser!

Flash’s Theme is a laid back and jazz infused disco affair. Ronny Jordan inspired guitar lines jam over a warm bed of live drums, full bass and keys to deliver a simply infectious and timeless record.

BUY IT IN OUR SHOP and at all the download stores.

Jazzanova – Nice 12″, The In Crowd gets my support.
