PAPERVINYL03 available now in the Paper Shop
Smoovin’ Groovin’ (Ray Mang’s Dumpy Re-Rub)
Star War (Greg Wilson Edit)
Crazy P’s releases with Paper Recordings in the late nineties/early noughties
are for many some of best records released by both the act and the label.
Now in 2010 Paper have handed over the tracks from A Nice Hot Bath With to
some of their favourite producers (Yam Who, Faze Action, PBR Streetgang,
Flash Atkins, Rune Lindbaek and Brennan Green) and have created the
marvellous ‘A Nice Hot Edit With’ due out next year to follow the re-release
of the re-mastered orginal in November.
The first vinyl sampler for the album contains two cuts, the first of which is
Greg Wilson’s epic thirteen minute edit of ‘Star war’. Wilson needs little
introduction; as one of the UK’s true DJ heroes he started his career back
in 1975 and was a pivotal force in breaking electronic and post disco music
to clubland through his residencies at everywhere from the Wigan Pier to the
Hacienda. For his reworking of ‘Star war’ he turns in a groove laden slice of
deep disco that drips with class from every pore and even after thirteen
minutes leaves you wishing for more!
The flip side of the release sees the wonderful Ray Mang whose DFA release
earlier this year was a huge success. Here he delivers his ‘Dumpy re-rub’ a
chunky, dark edged piece of floorfilling house with an electro/disco twist;
simple, hypnotic and brilliant.
The Revenge – Both of these mixes are ace…full support
Soul Clap (Wolf & Lamb) – ray mang for us! nice laid down disco vibation.
Horse Meat Disco – Great to see Paper back! Both are great …!!
Richard Dorfmeister – NICE!!
Chris Dukenfield – Nicely crafted re-do’s here Greg’s version tips the scales, probably on account of the associated half ton of defunct hardware
Trus’ Me – Feeling the Greg Wilson Edit
Diskjokke – Thanks for reminding me of that fantastic album, listened to it continously in 1998 and will put it back in my bag now. nice remixes, liked Ray Mangs the most.
Eric Duncan (Rub N Tug) – Sounds great!!
