200 Years of Paper Recordings

The excellent Undeleted (Sean Smith to his Mum) has written as retrospective of Paper to coincide with out 200th EP that is on the horizon. It has contributions from some of the people who have been on it including Miles Hollway, Sleazy McQueen, Danni & Chris from Crazy P, Chris Massey, Ben Davis, Rune Lindbaek and a host of others.
It’s a wonderful read brings back a whole host of memories.

Skrangle House

Paper’s association with Norway runs deep; from first signings Those Norwegians it has continued to flourish through to today with the label’s Paper Vision making a documentary called “Northern Disco Lights : The Rise & Rise of Norwegian Dance Music” due out in 2016.

So we thought it was time we pulled together some of the catalogue for a compilation.

“Skrangle” means leftfield or wonky and is a sound that the Norwegians have invented and claimed as their own. Rune Lindbaek fits the bill perfectly and his Junta Jaega is psychedelic disco at it’s best. He was also part responsible for Those Norwegians whose Da King Da Mazda was an anthem in Oslo’s seminal Skansen club and sounds as freshly unhinged now as it did back in the day.

Ralph Myerz has been a cornerstone of the scene since the early Tellé Records days and his Acid 4 Eddie is 14 minutes of deep bubbling house that had types like Osunlade, Laurent Garnier, Soul Clap and The Emperor Machine giving it the big one.

The sound has been passed on to a younger generation to producers like The Treatment, Diskobeistet, Rave-enka and Proviant Audio who’s out the box pop shouldn’t work but does in spades. Latest in line has been De Fantasiske To whose take on classic US garage comes with an arctic twist and they are looking like they have the legs to go all the way.

Add in a classic from from Keyboy, a remix from electronic pioneer Prins Thomas and exclusives from Nordic legend Kahuun, Rave-enka and Proviant Audio and you get a compilation that showcases the best of the country’s world influencing, genre-busting dance music.

“PAPER GEMS’ LEFTSIDE WOBBLE DJ MIX

 

“Paper Music are currently riding high in the album charts with their Paper Cuts #1 compilation, a collection of their finest moments from the last five years or so. As some of you may know I provided the sleeve notes for the CD version of Paper Cut’s and in support of the release I thought it would be cool to go through my Paper Music collection and dig out a selection of my personal favourites from the first 10 years of the label (1993 – 2003). All the tracks in the mix can be purchased from Juno or from Paper directly and I’ve also included a link to the Paper Cuts compilation – just in case you haven’t already bought it. :)
