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”

“Great remixes, but i like original mix! 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!!!”

“Oh yes!”

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.

Mark Farina – Nice cuts”

Get Down Edits – “Really nice release from Paper once again”

Space Ranger – “Perfekt summer-jam”

Andy Inland Knights – “Nice release …liking all cuts”

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – “More Fantastiske stuff! Great EP, Orgeldoner sounding great but once more Jay Nemor provides the magic.”

Harri – “Sunshines the one for me…lovely”

Nutritious – “A dancefloor with any sense will freak to Teknoköfte”

DJ Rocca – “LOVE IT!”

Dubble D – “Folk Og for me”

Bad Barbiebeats – “Solid little EP full of Chuggy, Loopy, Loveliness. Feeling the Robotic, Filthy, Grind of “Teknokofte” most”

Groovement Soul – “Feeling the hypnotic vibe of Folk Og Ferie”

Q-Burns Abstract Message – “Nice, clean sounds throughout. Liking the dreamy arpeggiators in ‘Folk Og Ferie’.

Robot 84 – “Killer EP, every track a winner… Luv it!! I’ll play every track…”

Bottin – Orgeldöner

Neil Diablo – “Solid groovey ep. love Orgeldoner. Is that kebab related?”

Kooky & Damoon – The Kooky & Damoon EP

After appearing on Trash The Wax 2, Kooky & Damoon drop their debut EP for Paper Disco and what a big badass booty shaker it is!

Loving Me Now starts things off across a section of horns, guitars & rumbling bass that will make you slug back the last of your pina colada, jump in the Quattro and head on down to the Pink Flamingo club to command a spot on the dance floor. Sleaze disco from a forgotten cop show never sounded so ace!

Good For You takes things to stage 2 of the night and right from the off its a handful of veras and a serious wiggle to the full bodied twanging bassline, hooky vox and guitar that sounds like Nile Rogers in the zone.

Remix action comes from Paper’s long lost brother Neil Diablo who goes for a classic dub on Loving Me Now. It uses less of the vocal and giving the instrumental arrangement room to shine, makes this perfect for the jocks that prefer their disco spaced out.

Loving Me Now also gets a workout from new kid on the block Dan Wainwright who covers it in microdots & stewed mushrooms for a full on psych wig out complete with acid squelch, reverb & delay drenched whooshes & swooshes. There’s enough weirdness to make you ring deed poll and change your name to Rainbow.

Hot Toddy:
“Good For You is fav of the 2. Nice mid tempo warmer upper!”

DJ Rocca:
“Groovy modern disco indeed!”

Fingerman:
“Nice release. The slow burn of Good For You is the one for me here. Neil’s Dub is a bit tasty too.”

Tronik Youth:
“Dan Wainright mix for me…good stuff!”

Will Tramp:
“Love the EP. Will definitely be playing ‘Good for you’ & ‘Loving me now’ this weekend. That bass is so god damn funky!”

Somerville & Wilson:
“Funky spicy boogie disco :-)”

Robot 84:
“Nice EP, really diggin the two remixes by Neil and Dan. Full support on this one!”

80’s Child:
“Another fine release from the Paper crew, all tracks are wicked but Good For You stands out the most here, Very cool & funky!!”

Robot 84 – Secrets EP

e’ve not been using the C word for a while round these parts but that’s not to say we’ve gone off it. This knockout 3 track EP from Paper newcomer Robot 84 has rekindled the love of all things CHUG.

Secrets gets things rolling and is driven along by an arp bassline whilst spaced out percussion hits spin & sparkle alongside reverb drenched pads & strings that look to the stars.

If Secrets is the journey then Automatic lands you slap bang in the middle of the dance floor with a straight up, heads down house vibe. Imagine underground Manchester crossed with Baldelli’s Cosmic Club and you’re headed in the right direction.

Ego is a darker affair than its predecessors and more tuned for the 4am crowd. No messing house music, it trucks & thunders along with stubby brass sections coming in here & there, all topped off with spaced out delays & reverb to make it a worthy addition to this interstellar EP.

Support from:

Leftside Wobble – The Italo bump and grind of ‘Secrets’ is working it’s magic on me.

Tronik Youth – “Love this EP!”

Neil Diablo (El Diablo’s Social Club):
“good ep. love ego!”

Billy Scurry (Electric Elephant):
“OOOOFFFF!! That’s just made the weekend a bit better!! Top vibes all round”

Joe Morris (Clandestino):
“Top gear from Scott as always. Secrets my fave, will be playing. Full support!”

80’s Child:
“Robot 84 killin it! Secrets gets the stand out for me on this! ELECTRO GREATNESS!!! Good job :)”

Ben Pistor (Disco Bloodbath):
“Enjoying this! Just found in my junk mail! On it.”

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio):
“Loving the return of the chug! Secrets is my pick, but loving Automatic too”

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.
