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”

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

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

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”

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

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”

De Fantastiske To – Folk Og Ferie EP

Our Norwegian friends De Fantastiske To deliver the goods once more in this slam dunk/home run/golden goal (delete as necessary) of an EP. If you like serious body shaking house music then prepare to hold on tight!

Folk Og Ferie starts off and its all kinds of ace-ness, marrying balearic tinged disco with jacking Chicago type house all sprinkled with that special Norsk cosmic dust. You don’t know whether to raise your hands, blaze up a fat one, order a cocktail or just dance, dance, dance! Maybe try all four?

Teknokofte runs out of the gate with snapping Roland 909 percussion and its sights firmly set on melting your face. A hooky bassline that’s drenched in squelch sits hand in hand with stubby strings & jazz infused chords.

Orgeldoner slows things down to take you into a purple haze of blessed out yacht rocking balearic disco. 80’s bassline with hooky chords, sustained string action and of course that signature Norwegian special sauce ties it up nicely.

Sunshine feat. Jay Nemor is like the long lost brother of a Gil Scott Heron track with it’s super laid back grooves. Dreamy rhodes, jacked up percussion and a sweet vocal make this fit perfectly into the “Nu-jazz balearic disco lounge house whatevs” category.

Trash The Wax # 2

Following the trail-blazing footsteps left by the first volume we are pleased to herald the arrival of Trash The Wax # 2.

Volume 1 shot to the top spot of the Juno Download chart and has been heard in such far flung discotheque destinations as Croatia, Ibiza, Leeds, London, Ireland and the motherland of Manchester. Support came from Emperor Machine, Psychemagik, Danny Krivit, Tom Findlay (Groove Armada), Horse Meat Disco, Eric Duncan and many more.

The second instalment picks up the (glitter) ball and cranks things up with 19 tracks courtesy of seasoned sound creators. There is Midnight Riot’s 80’s Child, Festival Number 6’s disco queen Sophie Lloyd, Norwegian legend Doc L Junior, Disco Deviance fellas SHMLSS, edit master Alkalino plus the man with the dirtiest underpants in club land Flash Atkins!

We’ve also brought some new discoveries to the fold who have turned up, turned on and turned out to capture the TTW vibe. Step forward Pammin, Tuxxedo, The Funk District, Morgan Cannon, Belabouche and Somerville & Wilson.

From Volume 1 Leon Sweet, Neil Diablo, 2 Billion Beats, Pablo & Shoey and Paper’s very own tea boy Chris Massey make a return visit with more essential dance floor filling cuts to tickle your boogie bone.

Expect everything from jacked out chugged up shufflers to bangers and sing-a-long peak timers so if Trash The Wax Volume 1 made you move then Volume 2 will ensure you need to go shopping for a new pair of dancing clogs.

Album includes a bonus DJ Megamix from one of Paper’s bright stars – Leon Sweet

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

Trash The Wax Vol. 1

Paper’s output has often lurked on the fringes of disco and now seemed as good a time as any to jump in with both feet, goggles and snorkel.

“Trash The Wax Vol. 1” hits the digital racks on April 3 featuring 16 original low slung, wigged out and floor heavy cuts from the great, the good, the tapped and the untapped.

Released on Paper Disco (a sub label of Paper Recordings) it follows hot on the heels of the 80s sugar rush that was Proviant Audio’s “Drift Days & Disco Nights” which found its way in to the boxes of Tensnake, Soul Clap, Horsemeat Disco and Danny Krivit as well as garnering a Norwegian Emmy nomination for the best album of 2013.

Artists on Volume 1 range from young 80s bucks like 2 Billion Beats who are pretenders to Crazy P’s crown, Manchester’s City Life DJ of the 2013 and Wet Play resident Ste Spandex, Paper’s ginger underground house assassin Richard Seaborne and Italian duo Gran Turismo.

More seasoned support comes from veterans like bootleg king Keep Schtum, Brighton’s builder of heavy grooves Fingerman, Australia’s disco vigilante Late Nite Tuff Guy and Manchester’s best kept secret Daco. And that’s just the ones we mentioned!

Running from sleazy late night jams to 80s synth and NRG to classic cut-ups, if this album didn’t make you want to go out and jump off a podium it’s time to get your hearing checked!

Flash Atkins – Collaborations # 2

Resident Paper munter and self soiler Flash Atkins is back with a second EP of collaborations. The first found favour with people like Danny Krivit, Bill Brewster, Crazy P and Moodymanc and was heard playing everywhere from The Warehouse Project to Croatian boat parties.

Flash?s first studio victim was young gun Chris Massey which resulted in a deep tribal house throbber that?s heavy on atmosphere as the first half builds around an arp, sub and subterranean percussion. For the drop the mood lightens with a Rhodes and 80s synth line as all the elements are re-introduced for maximum dancefloor dynamics.

Daco’s head was next on the Flash?s studio block and their track Vowerk is named after a breed of chicken. Fact. It’s a super-heavy slice of main room tech-house built around a distorted arped bass that summons up the spirit of John Ciafone and Mood II Swing.

Manchester veteran Neil Diablo didn’t know what he was getting in to and by the time he’d worked it out they were two tracks down. Nezulka is deep house at it’s finest and on a Hot Creations tip but without the whiff of sunglasses in nightclubs. Swinging drums and analogue bass keep it ticking over before the synths in the second half mellow things out to drag you out the K hole you may have been sliding in to.

The EP is rounded off with some 90s vibing house that?s got a bit of Balearic business going on. With samples firing off the track builds to the break where the organ does it’s sunset thing. But wait, is that a male vocal singing Hey Yeah as the drums drop? By golly it is and doesn’t it sound fine!

Moodymanc – Excellent vibrations from the most motley crew in dirty disco…

Stuart Knight (Toolroom) – NEZULKA is the one for me …dope !!!

Justin Harris (Freaks) – Sodium Original is really cool – nice EP.

Nathan Detroit – Love Massey. Love Diabo. Love this!

Nick Holder (DNH) – Nice and deep.

Harri – NIce work!

Nutritious – Vowerk!

Da Wiseguy – Nice pack of 4 steady builders….but Sodium kills them all!

Aldrin Zouk – Sodium is my fav cut.

Jonny Miller (Southport Weekender) – Flash Atkins, total loser so thank god someone else is on hand to help here. I love the bass edge on ‘Vowerk’, one for the shufflers at Southport maybe? The Neil Diablo collar cuts also worked very nicely, great EP!

Da Sunlounge – Sodium is very nice, will play this.

Dan J – Fully digging Vowerk, proper druggy business and looking forward to trying this out.

CP (Inkfolk) – Sounds like a Tribal records Eric Kupper outing…Nice.

Bootsy – The Neil Diablo collab Nezulka is my pick and love the vocal sample. But may I say the Daco track Vowerk doesn’t half kick eh? A close second!

Leri Ahel (Mutant Disco Radio Show) – Great EP, Vowerk is the one for me.

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – Loving everything about the Dirty Protest!

Dogan Aktay – I think the Neil Diablo ones stand a head above the other two but I like the overall coherence of the release.

Russell Politt – Got quality stamped right through this – brilliant EP.

Releases

Maxx Mortimer – Feelings EP

It’s good to get back to New Zealand again and we’ve been itching to put this EP by Maxx Mortimer out for a while. It nearly didn’t happen when his laptop was stolen but the stars aligned and the world of music is now a better place.

Feelings is vocal house at it’s very best with Stacey Gardener bringing the soul. Deep, simple and catchy its reminiscent of Miguel Campbell’s Something Special and has the potential to get the same kind of heat.

Next up Soulfood is deep garage that packs an extra thump. Nagging chords and sample, a big bottom end and drums that swing are all that you need for perfect heads down Saturday night NYC flavoured tackle. Expect dance floors like Faith, MOS and Fabric to be jumping all over this.

Got Some Funk has a more live flavour and it’s all in the groove that hits the one. Again on a garage tip with Rhodes and sample at the forefront this does it’s thing and does it damn well.

Mark Farina – “Dig these!”

Oliver $ – “Nice one”

Danielle Moore (Crazy P) – “Liking Soulfood for its repetitiveness. A constant groove which isn’t too overpowering. A good set of tracks”

Instagram: instagram.com/funk_bstrd

Fingerman – “Soulfood is a great deep number but Got Some Funk rocks this EP for me. Nice!”

Alkalino – “Good vibes!”

Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) – “YES FUNKY!”

Billy Scurry – “House music at it best, all tracks here doing it for me.. Solid stuff indeed!!”

Neil Diablo – “Got some funk has got some funk”

Benoit C – “Feelings for me”

Robot 84 – “Superb vocal, really feelin’ this…”

Get Down Edits – “Tasty stuff from the Paper camp once again x”

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – “Feelings will be in the ‘box’ all Summer long, great track. Digging the funk as well but all about Feelings for me”

Groovement Soul – “Lovely soulful EP this one, especially Soulfood with it’s deep detroit vibes. Recognising samples all over the shop”

De Fantastiske To – Monokrom EP

Norwegian young guns De Fantastiske To have come up with three brand new basement blasters for their new Monokrom EP.

It kicks off with the title track that is a straight up deep tech houser packing a vocal punch. Snapping percussion, detuned synth stabs, acid squelch and a large bassline are all present and correct as the sultry vocal stylings of their fellow countryman OST make it a certified killer!

Litt Dristig keeps things murky and a little hypnotic with swirly pads & organ chords then some stubby synth shots that ensure this party is kept subterranean. Proper deep house and not a vest in sight!

Sensommer goes jacking whilst keeping an eye firmly on the dance floor. Beats & bass start the party off and keep everything in check until some almost balearic disco pads & synths bring an element of sunrise to the forefront while the arps go twinkly.

Paper’s resident rodent and all round rotter Flash Atkins manages to stay off the juice long enough to turn in a full on, heads down tech edged banger that should be only played in the darkest of Berlin dark rooms.

Neil Diablo – Monokrom is pretty heavy!

Billy Scurry – Great release, looking forward to hearing Sensommer on a beach in the near future, but the Flash rmx steals it for me.

Danielle Moore (Crazy P) – Nice grooves on here with some quality skippy rhythms!

Goldboy – These guys always deliver the goods.

ROBOT 84 – Hard to pick a winner on here, all killer… thanks!!!

Get Down Edits – Cracking release, look forward to playing these.

Pathaan – NICE

Kahuun – Nice deep release for the dancefloors. The original Monokrom with Ost on vocals is a pure killer track. The Flash remix is on a strong second position.

Mental Overdrive – Flash mix for me. More off-centre than originals.

Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) – YES i like this.
