2 Billion Beats – Noise In Your Eye / Full Moon Boogie

Here is the first EP in a double header to mark Paper’s 150th single release.

2 Billion Beats’ Tom and Col have been sat in their studio wearing Day-Glo and high tops waiting for the invention of the hoverboard to no avail. So to kill time they cranked up their collection of 80s synths, set to work and came up with a couple of tracks that could soundtrack Summer 2013.

Noise In Your Eye is a BIG floor disco track that plugs an LCD Soundsystem shaped hole. So much so that it was played by James Murphy at The Warehouse Project this Christmas. The mystery is, nobody knew how he got hold of it but a wayward licensing CD is thought to be the culprit!

Heavy 4/4 beats and a locked down bass start things off before the piano is intro-ed, followed by strings and the sample weaving it’s way in and out. With synth noodlings, the track keeps building before it breaks for the chord change and all sorts of mayhem breaks out.

Full Moon Boogie is on a similar tip of 80s inspired disco and it’s all about the piano at the end. A stuttering synth bass and nagging top line build tension until 2/3rds through when it drops to a piano that’s been nicked from the middle of The Hacienda’s dancefloor at 1.30am on a Saturday night in 1993.

Ralph Myerz – REALLY digging Noise In Your Eye. I’m a huge fan of 2 Billion Beats but really feel that they have taken their stuff to the next level with this release. Full support from me for a looooong time!

The Glimmers – Love it!

Tensnake – Both tracks deliver, nice disco jams

Eric Duncan – Really FUN!! Will play both.

Hot Toddy (Crazy P) – Noise in Your Ear pushes all the right Nu Disco buttons!

Cowbell Radio – Two of the best tunes of 2013, no doubt, both have been massive on Cowbell. Noise in your Eye just gets the nod, but Full Moon Boogie is a proper ‘break glass in case of emergency’ dance-floor filler! Amazing work fellas!

Severino Panzetta (Horsemeat Disco) – Pretty cool.

Daniel Solar – Noise in your Eye for me.

Wrighty (Soul Buggin) – Noise In Your Eye has got Soul Buggin’ written all over it, nice work.

Leon Sweet – Beats Slave Auto / GTTR

1. Beat Slave Auto
2. GTTR

Leon Sweet is a producer who paid his dues and has the scars to prove it! He cut his teeth in the madness the free party circuit in the 90s, has been stuck in the middle of a gangster / bouncer showdown in the booth of the MOS whilst DJing and experienced major label meltdown.

And now after a break he’s back with two dance floor bombs for Paper on this debut two track EP for the label.

Beat Slave Auto first came to our attention via the great Billy Scurry who heard it on Soundcloud and pointed it in our direction. It’s a super heavy, hypnotic, pitched down slomo acid track that weighs in at over 10 minutes. Straddling techno, cosmic, house, acid and disco, it twists and turns in to what is proper head music.

On the flip, GTTR lightens things up with a rough as you like disco sample and the vocals of Christabel Cossins. Vox stabs, nagging bass and congas build to a classic piano riff that does what it says on the tin; smiles all round!

STOP THE CAR GETS TDRMC & NUMBER MACHINES TREATMENT

I’m sure you know plenty about the Dead Rose Music Company. Numbers Machine are actually Karoshi who launched Woodville with Love The World. However they don’t’ want anybody to know as this project is low key, faceless and secretive. Maybe mention that it’s one of our major artists in a secretive alter ego. The Dead Rose Music Company loved the original and on his reaction said he loved it and would be able to tear it up on a remix. So we asked him and he did!

The Numbers Machine Instrumental is stunning – really beautiful piece of electronic music.. Andy Durrant – Capitol Radio

‘I like the Dead Rose Music Company mix..cool shuffle moves on the hats too! – Erik Rug

Awesome! big fan of the dead rose music company, glad i got this before the weekend, full support – James Teej – Rekids
