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.

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

Billy Scurry – Aceness!! Think Bow down might be a bit of a slow grower and stay in the playlist for a bit.

George Summers (Midnight Riot) – Yes…all good.

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

Mezman – Le Deepend

We’re getting prepped & ready to leave the cold Winter nights behind us with these two cuts from Mezman.

Le Deepend filters into action as soon as you press play and much like its partner on this EP it’s got a warm & throbbing low end in spades. A simple loop is used to great effect with a subtle & cleverly used Aretha vocal to give it that little bit of extra disco dust.

Heatwave gets into action right from the off with a slap bass thats packs enough wobble to make Larry Graham proud. It’s classic jacked out disco percussion cracks in all the right places before we’re treated to a hell of a breakdown that builds before dropping right back in to the good stuff.

Both tracks are certified killers and pack a shallop when they’ve been dropping at Paper parties.

Chez Damier:
“I SIMPLY THINK ITS HOT! I would play both mixes”

Oliver $:
“Nice one will play it!”

Harri (Sub Club):
“Can use heatwave for sure!”

“Packs a whallop!”

Chris Massey:
“This is without a doubt absolute massive stuff! Solid disco licked house workout vibes that’ll sound boss on a big rig.”

Fingerman:
“Fantastic tracky disco gear. Both will get a rinsing :)”

Leon Sweet:
“Quality jams… i’m a Mezman fan. Just in time for Oslo too. All over it :)”

Somerville & Wilson:

Badbarbie Beats (Kane Fm & Cruise FM):
“Good Time Vibes, Perky little groover x”
