Mezman – Le Deepend

We’re getting prepped & ready to leave the cold Winter nights behind us with these two cuts from Mezman.

Le Deepend filters into action as soon as you press play and much like its partner on this EP it’s got a warm & throbbing low end in spades. A simple loop is used to great effect with a subtle & cleverly used Aretha vocal to give it that little bit of extra disco dust.

Heatwave gets into action right from the off with a slap bass thats packs enough wobble to make Larry Graham proud. It’s classic jacked out disco percussion cracks in all the right places before we’re treated to a hell of a breakdown that builds before dropping right back in to the good stuff.

Both tracks are certified killers and pack a shallop when they’ve been dropping at Paper parties.

B.G.Baarregaard – Partysvenskenes Dans EP

Paper’s Scandinavian connection continues with this release from one of Oslo’s finest residents. Although hailing from Reykjavik, B.G Baarregaard now resides in in Norway’s capital and its influence is clearly stamped all over this brilliant EP.

Partysvenskenes Dans has the kind of warm ‘n wobbly happenings that we’ve come to know and love from the scandi disco output. Plenty of resonance & space with a hint of Inspector Norse mean this treads on the right side of camp & kitsch whilst managing to pack enough of a stomp to ensure it blows up a dance floor.

(Got Me) Runnin’ jumps on a plane and heads straight to the late 80’s / early 90’s Manchester club scene. Big piano stabs and a classic vocal make it a real late night jacked out affair with everything here from the glory years of clubbing.

Konur Go Karlar seems to take on board both its predecessors to deliver a cut that is drenched in cosmicness as well as a nod to classic UK house. Simple, down the middle & hooky there’s enough going on to please those that favour discos and late night dancing dens.

Sleazy McQueen – “BG’s work is marked by some of the finest production quality in the modern disco scene. Partysvenskenes Dans sounds like BG’s been drinking the Norwegian-Disco kool-aid!”

Nutritious – “Undeniably fantastical.”

Ruben & Ra – “Nice’n’disco!”

Chris Coco – “Cool and a lot of fun at the same time, is that possible?”

Julian Sanza – “Loving this release! cheers!”

Phat Phil Cooper – “Full support on these bad boys…”

Stuart Knight (Toolroom) – “Runnin’ is the one for me , spot on chaps !!!”

Tunnel FM – “Stunning EP, like them all.. absolutely support, Thanks !”

Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) – “Yes i like Got Me Runnin'”

Ulysses – “I’m digging the funky Moog-filled disco vibe”

80’s Child – “You simply can not touch BG and combined with Paper Disco is awesome! every track is killer on this EP but my favourite is Got Me Runnin’ Great stuff kids!!!”

Billy Scurry – “Was really digging party.. then got me Runnin’ hit me! OOFF!”

Get Down Edits – “Killer release guys”

Neil Scott – “Got some nice scando-med Todd Terje type vibes to this. Me likey!”

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – “More neat Nordic noise from Paper boys! All tracks will work…Runnin’ has already been added to the “keep the girls happy” folder!!”

Danny Oliver – “Konur Og Karlar is my favourite here….classy slice of disco meets house. This is right up my street!”

2 Billion Beats – “Very rarely does a new record find it’s way into the bag these days. This EP just did!”

De Fantastise To – “Amazing EP from MR Iceman! Got Me Runnin is my fave!”

Somerville & Wilson – “Bouncy poolside house done well Somerville & Wilson”

Pablo & Shoey – Puttin’ Some Stank On It

After wowing us on Trash The Wax #1 with their edit “Raw Human Emotion” Pablo & Shoey, those boys from the emerald isle are back with a 3 track EP of the good stuff.

Kicking things off is the glitter ball encrusted “Funk It” that goes straight for the disco jugular. It’s got all the essential Studio 54 ingredients such as infectious handclaps, wah wah guitar, hooky piano loops, catchy vocals plus a spaced out breakdown where you can get lost in the smoke.

Down To The Bone exits the discotheque and heads into the early 80s Bronx streets. Grab the lino, strap on your hi-tops and prepare to bust a few windmills with this slice of edited hip hop/electro funkyness with its very large bassline and everything but the 808 kitchen sink. Check yourself before you wreck yourself….

Big Base finishes things off by being an almost hybrid of the previous two cuts…disco tinged percussion with a wacka wacka guitar lick throughout, body popping breakbeat and old school stabs to ensure one foot is stuck firmly in the street with the other spinning on the floor.

Perfect summer drenched offerings all to liven things up a bit!

Ease (Nightmares on Wax) – Fave track is Big bass.. will support

Rune Lindbaek – Perfic for me sets!

Luke Howard (Horsemeat Disco) – Good stuff. Funk It slowed down works for me.

Sleazy McQueen – Funk It is RIGHT! Love these Sylvester vibes!

Hot Toddy – Funk It is my pick, and will work well over t’summer

Phat Phil Cooper – Yes defo got the flava… will play on the beach :o)

Billy Scurry – The Disco Pikeys are at it again infecting people with their stankin groove.. everyone here is a winner for me!! Viva la disco choo choo!!

This Is Why We Dance – V. authentic-sounding retro vibes

Tunnel FM – Great EP, all tracks are great about them.. will try out for sure, Thanks!

Stuart Knight (Toolroom) – Down To The Bone for me once a B-Boy always a B-Boyyyy

2 Billion Beats – Spot the Davy DMX sample! What a bleeding ace EP, loving the 80s electro vibes.

Bogdan Taran – Funk It is lovely piece of disco!

Deep South Audio – Upbeat sounds …. Disco fantastic .. defo not plastic and gonna make the girlies spin … Another summer winner from Paper

Flash Atkins – Collaborations # 2

Resident Paper munter and self soiler Flash Atkins is back with a second EP of collaborations. The first found favour with people like Danny Krivit, Bill Brewster, Crazy P and Moodymanc and was heard playing everywhere from The Warehouse Project to Croatian boat parties.

Flash?s first studio victim was young gun Chris Massey which resulted in a deep tribal house throbber that?s heavy on atmosphere as the first half builds around an arp, sub and subterranean percussion. For the drop the mood lightens with a Rhodes and 80s synth line as all the elements are re-introduced for maximum dancefloor dynamics.

Daco’s head was next on the Flash?s studio block and their track Vowerk is named after a breed of chicken. Fact. It’s a super-heavy slice of main room tech-house built around a distorted arped bass that summons up the spirit of John Ciafone and Mood II Swing.

Manchester veteran Neil Diablo didn’t know what he was getting in to and by the time he’d worked it out they were two tracks down. Nezulka is deep house at it’s finest and on a Hot Creations tip but without the whiff of sunglasses in nightclubs. Swinging drums and analogue bass keep it ticking over before the synths in the second half mellow things out to drag you out the K hole you may have been sliding in to.

The EP is rounded off with some 90s vibing house that?s got a bit of Balearic business going on. With samples firing off the track builds to the break where the organ does it’s sunset thing. But wait, is that a male vocal singing Hey Yeah as the drums drop? By golly it is and doesn’t it sound fine!

Moodymanc – Excellent vibrations from the most motley crew in dirty disco…

Stuart Knight (Toolroom) – NEZULKA is the one for me …dope !!!

Justin Harris (Freaks) – Sodium Original is really cool – nice EP.

Nathan Detroit – Love Massey. Love Diabo. Love this!

Nick Holder (DNH) – Nice and deep.

Harri – NIce work!

Nutritious – Vowerk!

Da Wiseguy – Nice pack of 4 steady builders….but Sodium kills them all!

Aldrin Zouk – Sodium is my fav cut.

Jonny Miller (Southport Weekender) – Flash Atkins, total loser so thank god someone else is on hand to help here. I love the bass edge on ‘Vowerk’, one for the shufflers at Southport maybe? The Neil Diablo collar cuts also worked very nicely, great EP!

Da Sunlounge – Sodium is very nice, will play this.

Dan J – Fully digging Vowerk, proper druggy business and looking forward to trying this out.

CP (Inkfolk) – Sounds like a Tribal records Eric Kupper outing…Nice.

Bootsy – The Neil Diablo collab Nezulka is my pick and love the vocal sample. But may I say the Daco track Vowerk doesn’t half kick eh? A close second!

Leri Ahel (Mutant Disco Radio Show) – Great EP, Vowerk is the one for me.

Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – Loving everything about the Dirty Protest!

Dogan Aktay – I think the Neil Diablo ones stand a head above the other two but I like the overall coherence of the release.

Russell Politt – Got quality stamped right through this – brilliant EP.

Proviant Audio – How Does It Feel?

Mathias Stubo’s disco project continues to forge its way ahead in 2014 with a nomination for Drift Days & Disco Nights as best dance album of last year in the equivalent of the Norwegian Grammys.

How Does It Feel featuring Lido Lido is the third single to be taken off it and is the perfect combination of 80s, disco and pop with good times written in to its DNA. With Rhodes, sparkling synths, a healthy dose of NRG and a killer hook it’s been all A-listed on Norwegian national radio and is as perfect a 4 minutes as you’d ever want to spend.

Veteran disco merchant Pete Herbert brings dancefloor know-how, giving his version a solid 4/4, nagging bass and killer riff that sounds like an instant classic. Recently road tested at Paper’s Christmas party it was the biggest tune of the night and as the break kicked in the cheers were worthy of a cup final!

Paper stalwart Richard Seaborne takes a different path with a mix that is all about the acid and the jack. With a bouncing bass and drums that swing it works a groove for those underground floors that are the best parties.

Roberto Rodriguez – Excellent tune with great remixes! Count me in!

Ron Basejam (Crazy P) – Pete’s mix is well chunkeh duck.

Q-Burns Abstract Message – Good stuff and definitely digging the Pete Herbert mix though I am a little allergic to ’80s synths. The original is pretty hot, too.

Olle Abstrakt – Really like the original and Pete´s mix. Will play both a lot. Great to hear LidoLido´s voice on some proper stuff. He´s a big popstar in Norway with silly tracks on the radio.

Severino Panzetta (Horsemeat Disco) – PETE HERBERT is the man .. Great Richard Seaborne mix too

DJ Rocca – Pete Herbert Mix for me…full support!

Black Mighty Wax – Original Mix is good for airplay and Pete Herbert Mix will be my guest several times along my DJ sets!!

Da Wiseguy – The original and the Pete Herbert Mix have their charm….but it’s the Richard Seaborne Mix which really hoofs it. Feels good to me!

Bootsy – All about the remixes for me. Seaborne’s remix taking it straight to a dirty basement, whilst Mr Herbert’s trademark sound flows his remix turning the track into a bona fide Disco winner!

Cowbell Radio – Pete Herbert’s mix is the winner for me, liking the break, the way it kicks back in and then the added synths afterwards!

Dan J – Richard Seaborne mix is wicked. Pete Herbert is well tasty too. Full support!

This Is Why We Dance – Pete Herbert mix for me.

Justin Harris (Freaks) – Love Richard’s mix!!

Mike Burns – The Pete Herbert Mix is the one for me. Nice n funky!

Chris Massey – Pete Herbert once again has the Midas touch here and creates a bass bin, boat party rocking sunshine infused banger! Ace!

Phuturelabs – Love the Original and Herbert mixes. Will play out for sure!

DJ Tomas – Nice clean, soulful and shimmering productions. The Seaborne and Herbert mixes seal the groove quite nicely, nice tracks overall!

Proviant Audio – Like Never Before

PAPDLS155
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 .

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!

Justin Harris feat. Laura Vane – “Breathe 1,2,3” – Out Now!

PAPDLS151
Justin Harris feat. Laura Vane – 1,2 3 Breathe
1. Original
2. House Mix
3. House Dub
4. Down Tempo Mix

Justin Harris, an acid house warrior since 1987 finally arrives on Paper with his debut release 1,2,3 Breathe. His CV boasts gigs at clubs like Panorama Bar, Fabric, The End, Back To Basics and Robert Johnson and remixes for The Human League, Tiefshwartz and Mathew Herbert on labels like Classic, SWAG, Crosstown Rebels and 20 20 Vision. Amongst his many collaborations, Freaks with Luke Solomon is best know for their leftfield take on house and groundbreaking label MFF.

Breathe 1,2,3 is deep house with a soul that has a stamp of quality running through it like a stick of Blackpool rock. Minimal drums, analogue bass, piano and synth strings set things up for Laura Vane’s heart felt and timeless vocals.

The house mix ups drive and tempo but retains the deepness. Along with additional classic house stabs, the piano and strings give the track some nice chord progressions as the vocals tell their story.

The dub strips things back even more with the vocal stabbing and out as the music unfolds.

Finally, the down tempo mix breaks things right down for a lush version that aims at the hairs on your back of you neck and hits.

Sean Johnston (A Love From Outer Space) – Very good indeed!

Sleazy McQueen -I ‘m feeling the midtempo vibes, for sure!

Nick Holder (DNH) – Im digging this!

Tensnake – Nice to have back such a legend!

Severino Panzetta (Horsemeat Disco) – Quality!

Leon Sweet – Beat Slave Auto / GTTR

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!
