FLASH ATKINS – THE IN CROWD / FLASH’S THEME

We Are Woodville and Paper Recordings’ very own loser super hero Flash Atkins returns to centre stage with another genre-busting EP on We Are Woodville and two brand new cuts that delve deep into the realms of nu disco.

The In Crowd is a chunky and chugging groove laden number based round a hefty Roxy Music sample. It’s got some heavy synths, a big break and is a perfect peaktime roof raiser!

Flash’s Theme is a laid back and jazz infused disco affair. Ronny Jordan inspired guitar lines jam over a warm bed of live drums, full bass and keys to deliver a simply infectious and timeless record.

PAPERVINYL07 – CRAZY PENIS (CRAZY P / YAM WHO? EDITS)

Crazy Penis – Do It Good (Crazy P’s We Found The Parts Remix) by Paper Recordings

Crazy Penis – Omega Man (Yam Who Edit) by Paper Recordings

Crazy Penis
‘A Nice Hot Edit With – Sampler 3’
Paper Recordings
PAPERVINYL07

The third and final sampler from Crazy Penis’ ‘A Nice Hot Edit with’ album.

Crazy Penis’ debut album ‘A Nice Hot Bath With’ was one of the long players of 1999 and still holds a special place in many people’s memory, now in 2010 Paper have decided to hand over the tracks from this album to some of their favourite producers out there and as such have created the marvellous ‘A Nice Hot Edit with’.

For the final instalment Crazy P step up themselves to remix the excellent ‘Do it Good’, making the most of the fact that they manage to salvage the original parts by creating a brilliant disco fuelled, breakbeat driven anthem. Funk laden bass and tinkling Rhodes piano keys intertwine with tight guitar licks to form the basis for this superb re-invention of one of their favourite cuts.

On the flip the respected production duo Yam Who? take the reins and turn in a sublime edit of ‘Omega Man’ , taking the soulful funk of the original and twisting it into a nu-disco classic to keep the winter fires burning bright.

A Sound of Norway EP1

Ralph Myerz – My Dream Queen – A Sound of Norway EP1 by paperecordings

Ciscoe – Elevators – A Sound of Norway EP1 by paperecordings

Keyboy – OYB – A Sound of Norway EP1 by paperecordings

Paper Recordings has a long standing connection with Norway’s musical output, dating back to the label’s release of the seminal ‘Kaminsky Park’ by Those Norwegians in 1997. The label helped create a template for the Norwegian sound with its off-kilter beats, organic soul and giddy electronics and from the ashes of Those Norwegians rose Torbjorn Buntland who went on to form Royksopp and leftfield pioneer Rune Lindbæk who released ‘Sondag’ on our sister label Repap.

The series will draw on the best electronic music to showcase the modern Norwegian disco sound, featuring brand new tracks by established and up-and-coming producers. The first EP kicks off with this three tracker from Ralph Myerz, KeyBoy and Ciscoe accompanied by specially commissioned artwork by illustrator Joe Lobley.

The EP opens with Ralph Myerz ‘My Dream Queen’, a superb slice of slo-mo disco tinged house with warm melodies and ethereal vocals that go to show why Myerz has been such an important musical influence over the last decade.

Next up KeyBoy deliver ‘OYB’, a follow up to their hugely popular ‘Viva Blue’ from last year. It’s an intense techno / disco fusion which marries deep soulful melodies with tough analogue sounds providing a brilliant cut that is perfect tackle for soundsystems and home listening alike.

Finally we have newcomer Ciscoe who turns in a lower tempo slab of 80’s influenced electronics cum disco. Beautifully arranged and bristling with an edgy soul this is a great piece of music and perfect closing opus to this wonderful package.

BUY IT AT THESE STORES: Paper Recordings Shop, Beatport, Juno and iTunes, plus all other cool download stores…….

PAPERecordings is back from it’s summer hols with a release that breaks the template from dapper gent and Balearic legend Justin Robertson.  Justin is one of acid house’s true pioneers, constantly evolving and pushing new sounds using his vast armoury of music that ranges from reggae to synth pop to techno to house and rock.

We Could Be is his second outing on the relaunched PAPERecordings and it’s a belter.  The original is warped 4/4 business with a nagging slap bass riding the sub.  There is all sorts of analogue synth action and choppy edits to give it unexpected drops and fills resulting in big floor energy.

Next up Justin’s own remix takes live drums and creates something akin to oldskool techno played by a band.  The detroit bass dominates with a killer groove and plenty of fills to keep it rolling.

Boozer, drugger and sound manipulator Flash Atkins takes his remix down the electro pop route with floating keys, synth washes and plenty of delays.  The middle section goes in to a heads down percussion session before breaking into an arpeggiatored ending for the big finish…..mahem ensues!

Ashley Casselle and Mark O’Brian have taken the parts of the original down a deep techno route that keeps it tight.  They work the groove for maximum impact but with plenty going on under the hood.

Finally there is the bonus Magikal 100 that wears Justin’s 80s influences well and truly on it’s sleeve.  With a dropped down BPM it sounds like woozy Japan at a comedown party after a particularly heavy night…and that’s got to be a good thing!

Murray Richardson- Paper digital is rocking my digital world!!! 5/5

Slutty Fringe- Epic disco sleaze!
