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.

Rave-enka – Påfuglen EP

After providing hefty remix action for Richard Seaborne and behind the massive Gimme Some Dim Sum as one half of De Fantastiske To, Ravi Brunsvik steps up to drop his debut solo EP of the Norwegian good stuff on Paper.

Antibac kicks things off and to quote Chris in the office “it builds like an absolute bastard!”. Nearly 10 minutes of solid thunder is accompanied by jacking percussion and icy synth stabs whilst the beat just keeps on trucking. This one will grab you before you realise what’s happened.

Sur Sennep takes things to a late night discotheque located somewhere between The Hacienda and a Croatian festival. An almost acid house set up leads the way before evolving into the kind of balearic disco that can only be dreamed up in Norway. There are plenty of hooky synths, old skool keys and a bassline that squelches. Good times ahead when you unleash this..

Closing the EP off Påfuglen picks up the baton and takes things to the chill out room. Minimalistic and stripped back yet still full of enough synth squeaks, tweaks & bleeps to keep you hooked and intrigued. If Kraftwerk opened an opium den then this would surely be on their in-house playlist.

Sean Johnston – Chris Massey sent me this ages ago – I didn’t label it properly and I have been dying to know what it was – mystery solved. It’s fucking brilliant and has been a staple of 2015 ALFOS parties. KILLER!

Ron Basejam (Crazy P) – It’s a doozy.

Richard Seaborne – Times Are Hard

After previous releases on Paper and Paper Disco, the man who asked “Is This Acid?” (as charted by Todd Terje and featured on Tensnake’s All Gone Pete Tong comp) returns with Times Are Hard.

The original is a post neon 80’s style workout that wouldn’t sound out of place if you were driving a white Testarossa down the California freeway at night. A chopped disco loop gives way to a laid back smooth bass line with delay drenched synth stabs before the sultry vocal delivers.

Paper’s head tea boy and pasty lover Chris Massey throws all the above out of the window and drops a solid 4am whopper with the wobbliest & wonkiest off key synth and bass line this side of his home-town Bolton. It’s already had Emperor Machine asking to do an edit so handle this one with care!

Our Norwegian friends De Fantastiske To drop a mix that could be at home in the basement clubs of New York. It’s simple, jacking & slacking with hypnotic synths alongside the original’s vocal. This is heads down house music with a slight look up only to have a blast a poppers.

DJ Rocca – – “Chris Massey remix blowed my mind!”

Mugwump – “The Chris Massey remix is fucking bonkers.”

Reza Athar – “Lovely! Big fan of Richard as I told this 1000 times. Chris Massey’s mix is incredible as well!”

Q-Burns Abstract Message – “Original mix is nice + spacious, good vocal bit. Thanks -”

Andy (Inland Knights) – “Nice…..will spin it tonight”

Danny Oliver – “Love the Chris Massey Mix…filthy”

Frank Lihaug – Wicked package.”

Wrighty (Soul Buggin) – “the De Fantastiske mix is mighty fine, can see the Buggin’ crowd getting sweaty to that”

Billy Scurry – “OOOFFF!! check out plastikmass!! destroyer! 4am or otherwise”

Cowbell Radio – “Something for everyone here…love the wobbly wonkiness of Chris Massey’s re-work, but once again I’m loving what De Fantastiske To do!”

Leon Sweet – “Yeayyaaahhh! Mr Seaborne on fine form as usual and super strong remixes. A little something for everyone me thinks. I can’t actually pick a fave, I like all in equal measures. Top marks one and all.”

Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) – “Remix is pretty cool”

Ulysses – “I like the warehouse-y sound of the 4AM mix best.

Nuno Cacho – “What a pack! Live the original, to chart it and play in my club, love the 4am mix to play at 8am in portuguese way of clubbing, and love The Fantistc one becouse it’s my style to play at 6pm. COMPLETE!”

Somerville & Wilson – “Another corking release from Paper Recordings .Chris Masseys remix is our fav although De Fantastike remix comes a close second .

Russell Deeks – “Solid nu-disco vibes on the orig but liking DFT remix best”

La Guardia De La Luz – Resonate EP

La Guardia De La Luz is the brainchild of Mexican producer Santiago Rionda which he tells us was “created as a vehicle to explore metaphysical topics in a simple, primitive and emotional house sound”. This is his first EP and what a debut!

Resonate starts off raw, deep and moody with stringy synths and a trippy spoken word vocal. The swing takes on on a garage edge with a nod to Moodyman before breaking to a piano halfway to give it an NYC flavour.

La Luz Visible is a deep and trippy cut that builds steadily with a drone and minimal drums before the bass comes in at 2.30 and it shifts up a gear. As the track develops the droning synth grows with keys and analogue lead lines and the result is psychedelic house music at its best.

House Metafísico drops the BPMs and keeps the psychedelia but this time takes things in a more balearic direction. A constant synth line keeps building and filtering with percussion coming in and out plus tinkling keys. This isn’t instant dance music but house that weaves its hypnotic spell and rewards over the long listen.

Shane Johnson (Fish Go Deep) – Distinctive sound throughout the EP. Will definitely take a second listen to La Luz Visible.

Nathan Detroit – Resonate is the one for me.

Nelson Ramalho – Strong release.

Somerville & Wilson – La Luz Visible is the track for us .Full support from Somerville & Wilson.

Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) – Pretty cool.

Black Mighty Wax – Got a good vibe from “House Metafisico”

Dan J – Absolutely boss release! Resonate is the pick of the bunch but the whole ep is mega. Full support.

Pathaan – Nice package.

Danny Oliver – La Luz Visible is lush.

Ravi Brunswick (Oslo) – Loving all the tracks! Resonate is my immediate favourite. Strong release. Full support.

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – House Metafisico does it for me, loving the downtempo sound. Resonate will get some love too.

Leon Sweet – Intelligent gear. I’m liking that a lot. Hard to pick a fave but House Metafisico gets the top slot.

Tom Lynch – Resonate sounds wicked!

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.

Somerville & Wilson – Really feeling the vibe on Dragsug. Well produced release.

Drop Out Orchestra – Loving Dragsug.

Joe Morris – Tropical Highway EP

Joe has been releasing music on some of the best UK labels of the moment including EDSC and Is It Balearic? and now the man from Clandestino is back with the follow up to his last EP just in time for summer. Tropical Highway follows the same format with one deep house houser and two gorgeous balearic nodders.

“Always” leads the pack and is aimed at that 3am moment when you’re parked in front of the speaker and living for the moment. Crisp reverbed percussion and a shuffling sub lay the foundations for keys that look towards Detroit. An old school sample helps build the track with strings and pads until the drop is reached and not a moment too soon, that kind of intensity can only be kept up for so long! Then it’s back down to the business of getting stuck in.

“Elysium” has a side chained chorused pad, gentle percussive keys, strings, a trippy vocal sample and the only thing missing is the sound of the lapping sea. It weaves it’s hypnotic magic as the synths and pads play counter melodies off each other sounding like a lost 90s Cafe Del Mar classic which is no bad thing in our book!

“Fireflies” carries on the same tip with filtered pads that are heavy on atmosphere as the bass moves around them. A stabby synth pushes the track along as the drums build and drop with the keys giving it that balearic hook.

So when you’re watching the sun go down and enjoying the perfect Ibiza / Croatia / Thailand / Yorkshire (delete where appropriate) moment , the Tropical Highway EP will be the soundtrack!

DJ Rocca – Nice bass driven deep house.

Rocky (X-Press 2) – Elysium and Fireflies are the ones.

Murray Richardson – Love this, love Paper!

Will Tramp – Great EP. Loving the package! Well done Joe

80s Child – Always is the track that will be getting the most plays from me great stuff :)

Russell Deeks – Always for me here but liking the other two as well

Nuno Cacho – I love the balearic ones… This is so good and fresh for my summer!

Que Sakamoto – Thank u!!I will play a lots Always.luvly!!

Dan J – Really into ‘always’. lovely track!

Ulysses – Nice stuff. Reminds me a little of mellower Pagan releases.

Ed Bigland – Elysium our favourite, balance is just right on this one.

Marius Vareid (Full Pupp) – Elysium is perfect summer business!

Pathaan – Love it!

DJ Tomas – Real strong sense of chords and synths on these tracks in the fine tradition of Guidance or Prescription Records, good company to be in!

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – Lovely sun-drenched beats all over the EP. Elysium will be soundtracking my sunsets all Summer, the best Balearic track I’ve heard this year so far!

2 Billion Beats – Really liking the vibes on this- good beach or late night lose yourself in your own head vibes. The feeling reminds me a bit of AFX -selected ambient werks…

Feodor AllRight – Fireflies is lovely

Billy Scurry – Excellent! really digging Always, hit me like Don Carlos..Alone did many years ago…Awesome!! top class EP!! now wheres that beach?!?

Andy Wilson (Ibiza Sonica) – Nice vibes for daytime ibiza on Elysium and Fireflies , will play on the radio and the beach

Mutant Disco Radio Show – Lovely release. All 3 tracks are magic.

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.

Krysko – Liking the Dark Dub, will get some early doors airing for sure.

Neil Diablo – Let’s Get It On EP

Neil Diablo, one of Manchester’s unsung heroes steps out from behind the decks to release an EP of future music that ranges from peak time deep house to slo-mo disco.

 


PAPDL42

Neil Diablo – Let’s Get It On EP

1. Let’s Get It On.
2. Yr Mnd Yr (Dub)
3. Take Two

Neil Diablo has been a cornerstone of the Northwest’s club scene over the past ten years through his El Diablo’s Social Club, which has been a bastion for all things disco and house. Booking guests like Greg Wilson and Eric Duncan, it is well known that Neil is the DJ that the crowds go to hear. Out of the night has sprung EDSC Recordings and his vinyl only disco edits as Evil K’Neil on KAT Records that are highly sought after, selling out in days.

Let’s Get It On is deep tribal business headed straight to the main room. It’s teeth are shown once the organ synth comes in for proper heads down foot to the floor deep house that bites. The latter half of the track gives the 303 a run out and it’s all boxes ticked!

Yr Mnd Yr first saw the light of day on the Paper Cuts # 1 compilation earlier in the year, finding favour with DJs like Justin Robertson, Andy Ash and Love From Outer Space’s Sean Johnston. Here he strips things back for a dub that is tough house music, drawing equal inspiration from Detroit, NYC and Chicago.

Finally he flexes his disco muscles on Take Two. Taking things right down, it’s a rolling funk groove with an off-kilter bass, delayed synths, dub stabs and a sample that does it’s thing in slo-mo style. Music for the head and feet.

REACTIONS

Rocky (X-Press 2) – Take Two is ace. I will play it on the radio.

Justin Una Bomber – Each one hits the spot. awesome package of dance floor bombs!!!!

Billy Scurry – Hot As f**k!! Neil is on a roll! let’s get on it nails it.

Moodymanc – Fanbloodytastic!

Sean Johnston (Love From Outer Space) – Nice work.

Murray Richardson – Very very classy indeed – 3 smashing trax – luv it!

Eric Duncan – YEA!!!!!!!

Jacques Renault – Nice one Neil!

Bill Brewster (DJ History) – The last one’s a nice groover. good work Neil!

Joe 90 (Futureboogie) – Two surefire bangers there, can’t wait to play them. Massive win from Neal!

Nathan Detroit – Deep chugs.

Marius Våreid – Take Two is a monster. Love it!

Q-Burns Abstract Message – Take Two for me, hands down. Slinky strut … I dig it.

Hunk of a Man – AWESOME!! i’ll play all of these thank you…(“,)… WHOA!

Sleazy McQueen – Dig it!

Cowbell FM – Another quality release, although I’d expect nothing less from the man. Yr Mind Yr is still one of my favourites of this year, but I like the sleaziness of Take Two.

Andy Toka (Inland Knights) – Nice EP, for me the lo-slung vibes on take two are the buisiness, cool tune.

Kahuun – Oh, I love that bass in Let’s Get It On! Proper release lads!

Stuart Patterson – Well dabbled diablo .. yr mind yr and take two the picks for me.

Untitled Music – Dub mix very tasty!

Martin Brew -Nice deepness all round!

Benoit C – Coool EP

Death On The Balcony – Take Two is the one!

2 Billion Beats – Mega City One

2 Billion Beats mix their love of the 80s, house music, disco, handlebar moustaches and side chaining in to a sound that references the past but puts it firmly in the phuture. With recent releases on 3am Records and getting love from DJs like Pete Herbert, Crazy P, Toby Tobias and Psychemagik they are one of the next generation of producers spinning house on it’s head.

For Mega City One they have gone deep and widescreen. With a sparkly riff that a rock solid bass nails down, the track introduces some Rhodes before building to the break. Then comes the acid and it’s a trip for the head and feet as the tracks ebbs and flows with the atmosphere and dance floor dynamics set to 10.

Next up, the King of Norway Ralph Myerz suitably steps up to the plate, being 2 Billion Beats’ favourite ever producer. Keeping it deep but with a lighter mood, he goes for a Balearic disco vibe and hits a bullseye! Vocoders, NRG bass, crisp production and the original riff give it a classic Paper house sound.

Joe Morris goes more nu-disco with analogue bass and acid, sax and stabbing synths that lock things down before the piano chords. When they come in it’s that dance floor moment you go looking for.

Finally Flash Atkins heads in the opposite direction with a mix that’s deep and moody. Over broken beats, it weaves it’s way through a soundscape of arpeggiated synths, live bass, delayed guitars and percussion to the break where it drops to nothing but a messed up gospel vocal. Then the track elements are re-introduced before strings finish things off nicely.

REACTIONS

Bill Brewster (DJ History) – Original is very oddball but kinda cool. Reminds me a bit of those proggy early 90s UK house records.
