BG Baarregaard – Aalone EP

Icelandic groove warrior B.G. Baarregaard is back on Paper Disco with an EP written after a move to the Norwegian town of Aal. Avoiding the use of samples it’s modern flipped out good time music for feet and floors wherever they may be.

AMR is modern disco with a popping NRG acid bass, funky keys, some Nile guitar and everything you need for a disco ball moment. Just when you think you’ve got it nailed the chord changes and off it goes again.

From the first bass and chords of Kulturhuset you know summer is well and truly on the way. If house music wore a grin then this would have one a mile wide. Stabbing chords, jumping drums and tuned percussion bring the sunshine.

Finally Mestringskatten is the deepest track of the package but still has that 80s synth sound. It’s in beach bar mode with plenty of twinkling and balearic sensibility ideal for sinking a Pina Colada on the Adriatic. So when you’re sat there thinking I know this this one, well this is it!

Yam Who? : “Bjorn providing the special goody bag!”

Sleazy McQueen : “My favorite Iceland-cum-Ål transplant is quite at home surrounded by icy soundscapes, bouncing, round bass and latin percussion. It’s a treat to hear him develop as an artist through the years.”

Fingerman: “Nice chuggy numbers. Kulturhuset stands out for me. First rate :)”

Get Down Edits: “Proper, This is cosmic disco at its best, top quality!”

Daco “Great EP with lots of bounce!”

ROBOT 84 : “Nice summer vibes!”

Chris Massey Music: “Mastringskattan sounding cooler than a Calippo Cucumber here….full support and will give this a few trial runs”

Cosmic Capers Radio Show : “Mestringskattens cosmic swirls gets the vote for me on this one, nice tune.”

Pete Herbert : “Love ’em”

Bad Barbie : Lovely laid back summer meanderings”

Neil Diablo : “Sexy ep! amr is my favorite”

Trash The Wax # 2

Following the trail-blazing footsteps left by the first volume we are pleased to herald the arrival of Trash The Wax # 2.

Volume 1 shot to the top spot of the Juno Download chart and has been heard in such far flung discotheque destinations as Croatia, Ibiza, Leeds, London, Ireland and the motherland of Manchester. Support came from Emperor Machine, Psychemagik, Danny Krivit, Tom Findlay (Groove Armada), Horse Meat Disco, Eric Duncan and many more.

The second instalment picks up the (glitter) ball and cranks things up with 19 tracks courtesy of seasoned sound creators. There is Midnight Riot’s 80’s Child, Festival Number 6’s disco queen Sophie Lloyd, Norwegian legend Doc L Junior, Disco Deviance fellas SHMLSS, edit master Alkalino plus the man with the dirtiest underpants in club land Flash Atkins!

We’ve also brought some new discoveries to the fold who have turned up, turned on and turned out to capture the TTW vibe. Step forward Pammin, Tuxxedo, The Funk District, Morgan Cannon, Belabouche and Somerville & Wilson.

From Volume 1 Leon Sweet, Neil Diablo, 2 Billion Beats, Pablo & Shoey and Paper’s very own tea boy Chris Massey make a return visit with more essential dance floor filling cuts to tickle your boogie bone.

Expect everything from jacked out chugged up shufflers to bangers and sing-a-long peak timers so if Trash The Wax Volume 1 made you move then Volume 2 will ensure you need to go shopping for a new pair of dancing clogs.

Daco – Drip Dry

[soundcloud width=”100%” height=”136″ params=”” url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/playlists/604834″]

Paper Recordings are back with Manchester soul warrior Daco for the latest single release including a great remix from the ever consistent Yam Who?

Dave Connally AKA Daco has been releasing quality dance music for the last 20 years on labels like WEA as part of Mellowstate in the early nineties, producing for numerous labels such as Sony Music and working alongside the likes of Zed Bias, The Una Bombers and Finley Quaye. His ‘Aquarium EP’ on Paper in 2009 received broad critical acclaim and support and is now followed up with ‘Drip Dry’.

The A side features the original version of ‘Drip Dry’, a funk laden slice of slo-mo house boogie with warm analogue bass, soulful keys and looped vocal lines leading to an uplifting classic piano line that conjures up the spirit of late eighties house.

The flipside sees Yam Who? take the remix reins and deliver a bumping nu-disco house cut that ups the tempo and brings the moog work to the fore and a distinctly Moroder-esue feel to the proceedings.

BUY IT IN THE SHOP

Laurent Garnier : Definitely for my record box. Great tracks!

Una Bombers : Classy piece of retro modernism from Daco. Love it. And the Yamster comes good as always upping the tempo for later in the night. Will be dropping both of these beauties.

Ralph Lawson : Diggin the Yam Who? mix.

Rocky : Love the Yam Who? version.

Jim Baron (Crazy P) : Yes, yes! Our Dave comes up trumps here, lovin it. Massive slo-mo hands in the air &Yamz mix is handy too particularly when the faster drugs have kicked in.

Red Rack’em : Loving the OG and the remix is really cool too – I love the spacey synth action from Yam.

Stuart Patterson : Lush innit. Playlisted for the radio and I’m old enough to play it in a club as well.

Diskjokke : Loved the original, very cool track!

Horse Meat Disco : Yam Who? delivers a super playable rmx

Phat Phil : Yam Who giving it the uplift with a great remix.

Nelson Ramalho : What a fantistic track and a great start for 2011. Both Original and Yam Who? remixes

Chris Coco : Lovely and groovy, original version for me

Martin Brew : Ace!

Neil Scott (El Diablos) : Aceness! Original doing it for me but Yam Who? remix really nice too

Fred Everything : Nice release, Yam Who Remix? for me.

Billy Scurry : Lovin this!! Both strong tracks but the original does it for me, love that swing, bass and piano then great pads… Monster!!

DJ Alex From Tokyo : 2 sweet modern boogie jams!

Craig Smith (6th Borough Project) : Nice slice of 80’s style vibes

Bonar Bradberry : Really cool! Yamz mix sounds grrreat!

Leftside Wobble : Both versions ooze class but mid tempo grooves of the original definitely tip it for me.

Mathew Krysko : Boogie boogie boogie – like the original.

The Dead Rose Music Company : I love the original, real low down soundtrack to a disco extravaganza. Yam’s mix wasn’t what I was expecting, the arp groove is sick and will get played for sho!!! Big love and respect to the synth pads.
