Proviant Audio Juno Review

Juno Review

Proviant Audio aka Mathias Stubo touches down on Paper Disco, a subsidiary of Paper Recordings, dedicated to only the funkiest of floor cuts. The original of “Like Never Before” is a vocal-heavy bomb reminiscent of the 70s, with enough soul to set your skates on fire. The 2 Billion Beats remix is a discofied, Pepe Bradock style tune, whilst Ste Spandex deliver a gorgeous live take on the original, with slithering percussion and one mean lean bassline, while Sleazy McQueen provides a shaking, filtered version to add another level of funk. TOP!

Proviant Audio – Like Never Before

Proviant Audio – Like Never Before

1. Original

2. Sleazy McQueen Mix

3. 2 Billion Beats Mix

4. Ste Spandex Live Hardware Mix

Proviant Audio are back with the second single from their album “Drifty Days & Disco Nights” that DJ Mag described as being “BETTER than Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories”.
It’s a shimmering piece of good time disco that has shades of the 80s and an earworm of a hook. With horns and synths backing up the vocals plus a full band and next level production it’s like summer is still here.

Florida resident and the man behind Whiskey Disco Sleazy McQueen takes things more 4/4 but retains the spirit of the original. It’s got plenty of atmosphere, a locked down bass, handclaps and lovely touches that give it a deep hypnotic feel.

2 Billion Beats go a bit more high energy with a bouncing kick and nagging sample but with their love of all things 80s shining through. The production is kept sparse, ready for the Rhodes that is given free range to do it’s thing and so it does!

Finally Manchester’s hotly tipped Wet Play resident Ste Spandex turns in a distorted nu-school banger. Taking the vocal and parts he stamps his style on it, driving the mix in to peaktime territory .

Rune Lindbaek – Aceness!

The Dead Rose Music Company – Love this!

Lewis Dene – Hauntingly simple and very affective.

Will Tramp – Nice. Lovely stuff!

Patski Love – Sleazy is the winner!

Q-Burns Abstract Message – Mr. McQueen’s groovy treatment is the one for me here … on point.

Cowbell Radio – Lovely stuff, nice choice of remixes but it’s 2 Billion Beats that tip the scales for me (natch)! As always, guaranteed to get people bouncing!

Tensnake – It’s a musthave for sure.

DJ Wrighty (Soul Buggin’) – 2 Billion Beats mix is the the one for me, it gives it a big disco injection.

Dean “Sunshine” Smith – Original for me, a nice slice of shimmer.

Gareth Sommerville – 2 Billion Beats is bestest.

Stuart Knight (Toolroom) – Nice slab of 80s vibes on a friday… thank you chaps
full support.

Cesare Cera aka Black Mighty Wax – Super!! great reworks from Sleazy McQueen and 2 Billion Beats.

Severino Panzetta (Horsemeat Disco) – Great SLEAZY McQueen remix!!

Get Down Edits – Sleazy Mc Queen mix stands out on first listen .

Tim “Love” Lee – Love Proviant Audio!

Danielle Moore (Crazy P) – Fierce collection fave being the Sleazy…all great remixes and v different!

Ulysses – The Sleazy McQueen makes it more disco, which is a good thing, but the Ste Spandex remix does the best job.

Billy Scurry – Toss up between billion beats and sleazy.. really great remixes.

Christophe (Futureboogie) – Aces.

Frank Lihaug – Brilliant package. Sleazy McQueen is the BOMB!

Once I Thought by Proviant Audio OUT NOW

Proviant Audio – Once I Thought

1. Original
2. Prins Thomas Disko Mix
3. Chris Massey Mix
4. Leon Sweet’s Wizard Mix
5. Flash Atkins Mix

Mathais Stubo’s Proviant Audio is launching Paper Disco with Once I Thought, the first single from his forthcoming second album ‘Drift Days & Disco Nights’.

His debut, ‘Real Love Tastes Like This’ announced his arrival in 2011 in true style with it’s heady mix of house, disco, soul and hip-hop. The new material is more disco and demonstrates his continued development as one of the most new exciting producers around today.

Once I Thought points the way towards a more disco direction but still with his trademark choppy production and layered instrumentation. Add an arrangement that always surprises to a vocoded vocal earworm and the summer of disco finally lands via Norway!

Prins Thomas takes on his fellow countryman in fine style, bringing his own psychedelic disco sound. Retaining the vocal, the hypnotic bass is introduced and the track builds before the broken kick is introduced a full 3 ½ minutes in. It continues to ebb and flow with washes, synths, samples, acid and moving bass in true head and feet mashing style. It finishes off the way it begins, deep and trippy!

Nu disco upstart Chris Massey takes time out from his day jobs at Paper Towers and Electric Elephant to come up with a mix that ticks the 4/4 disco boxes but takes it big room. With spacious bass and synth and the original’s nagging guitar it’s got Funktion 1 written all over it!

Leon Sweet brings his trademark crisp production and gives the mix a 80s bent. With touches of Blancmange and Japan, it’s squelchy, synthy and dancefloor effective!

Flash Atkins takes a more organic direction with live drums and percussion building up to a fat dropped bass and 4/4 beat. The break reintroduces the percussion again before it’s back to business!

Feedback so far…

Soul Clap – “Prins Thomas takes it epic again, nice oneeeee”

Danny Krivit – “Liking several of the mixes!”

Tensnake – “Always a pleasure to have new stuff from Paper. Great original but Prins takes it to another level”

Roberto Rodriguez – “What a great feel good song! Loving it!”

The Flash percussion in brilliant, but the winner for me is Chris Massey’s remix, like the description says, this will be a guaranteed floor filler!”

Mutant Disco – “Nice release, Prins Thomas mix for me.”

Q-Burns Abstract Message – “Strong release … everything here is appealing, Prins Thomas + Leon Sweet mixes share the ribbon from me. Thanks!”
