Here are two of the runners up from the remix competition we ran for Proviant Audio’s Take Me Back To When I Wish I Was Born in the Autumn. They lost out by a whisker but were so good, thought they deserved to posted up.
PAPD23 Proviant Audio – Take Me Back To When I Wish I Was Born
1 Take Me Back (Proviant Audio’s Next Level Disco Mix)
2 Take Me Back (Brennan Green Mix)
3 Take Me Back (Atella’s Loveboat Mix)
4 All This Time (Daco Mix)
Take Me Back To When I Wish I Was Born is the 3rd single from album ‘Real Love Tastes Like this!’ by Proviant Audio AKA Mathias Stubø. When we asked him to re-edit the original he went away and did a whole new remix, exchanging the Latin vibes for more choppy disco elements.
Brooklyn based Brennan Green, who has previously released on DFA, Balihu and his own Chinatown imprint is up next with a stripped down, hypnotic Latin disco jam that sticks closely to the original.
Next up is the winner of the Paper remix competition winner from earlier this year, Atella. The fellow Norwegians deliver a remix which wonks out the original parts to create a 4/4 take that drops and filters for maximum floor action.
Finally, Paper stable member Daco is back with a cool mid tempo mix of All This Time reminiscent of early 80’s NY proto house releases. It is deep, soulful and oozing with quality, reframing the vocals from the energetic original in to a heavy vibing beauty.
Rune Lindbaek – Brennan for me floors….tune!
Cosmic Boogie – That Proviant Audio mix sounds MASSIVE!
Hot Toddy – Loving Proviant Audio’s Next Level Mix.
Roberto Rodriguez – Very nice remix pack! Loving the Daco mix of All This Time especially.
DJ Alex From Tokyo – Take me back is a GREAT fun carnival party track! Brennan’s remix is a KILLER!! All This Time is a great boogie number.
Stuart Patterson – Sheeeet, you know how much I love Proviant Audio but these mixes are top floor. Can’t wait to play this space funk disco shit.
Jim Baron (Crazy P) – It’s Daco’s mix all the way. Quality.
Nutritious – WOW. Every mix here is pure bliss.
Billy Scurry – Excellently diverse mixes, all really great and will play ‘em all, but the Daco one sneaks it for me… love the vibe.

Brukbar / Supa, Trondheim
Legendary bar with a legendary basement, Brukbar is the bar and Supa is the club with strictly good vibes represented on a Funktion One soundsystem.
Cafe Contra Bar, Bergen
Managed by Frank Lihaug, this place always seems to have great music, great people and a friendly atmosphere. People get down to all sorts of disco madness that starts off easy and ends up crazy.
Really nice backyard boogie where the music varies but its usually a great experience. Last I checked it out, Toomy Disco was playing some dope tunes.
Turkish Delight, Oslo
Sort of a hidden gem in Oslo. I had the pleasure of kicking it there listening to a way out set by Erik Fra Bergen and hadn’t heard that much great boogie and funk madness in a while. I highly recommend this head for the headnodders. Such a delight!
‘Slutten På Alt’ is one of the highlights from Proviant Audio’s debut album ‘Real Loves Tastes Like This!’ and now gets the remix treatment.
The album is a rich mix of disco, funk, soul and house which has seen the 18 year old Norwegian receive broad critical acclaim as part of the new generation of Scandavian artists.
The release kicks off with the original (promo only) which is a journey through disco and ending up on a killer riff that sounds like it’s been stolen from a lost classic (it hasn’t, it’s all played live).
Ralph Myerz ‘Norwegian Kiss’ turns in a broken slice of soulful tech-disco. His mix moves from a soul groove to a brilliant slow-mo breakdown before lifting back into a tight house groove.
Next up, Leftside Wobble is at the controls and an artist probably best known for his superb re-edits in recent times. For his version of ‘Slutten På Alt’ he picks up the funk and runs with it, creating a dubby disco mix with plenty of bounce and leftfield soul.
Finally Paper Recordings own Flash Atkins takes things in a deeper direction fusing the best of house, techno and disco in to a late night, bottom heavy floor filler.
Roberto Rodriguez : Absolutely loving the Ralph Myerz and Leftside Wobble mixes! Will get lots of spins!
Jim Baron (Crazy P / Ron Basejam) : Good selection of mixes, like ’em all but think Flash Atkins just shades it.

Q Burns – Nifty, sprawling track here … all the twists and turns definitely kept my interest. All a pleasure, but the Flash Atkins remix edges it for me.
Tim “Love” Lee : Love these guys!
Disco Outcasts (Manchester) : Jesus Christ!! The Flash Atkins Mix is a super bass heavy workout that will detonate massively! Also feeling Leftside Wobbles acid disco affair.
Benoit C : Cooooool EP
Neil Diablos : Realy like the Ralph Myers quirky remix but its the Flash Atkins mix doing it for me!
Yanick Labbé : Flash Atkins all the way!
Pete Herbert : Ralph Myerz! What a great remix… loved the RM stuff from years back.
