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.
BUY IT IN OUR SHOP and at all the download stores.

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.
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.

‘A Nice Hot Edit With – Sampler 3’
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.
Crispin Dior : Yam Who daddy all the way here. love the balance between kick and snare.
Sebastian Döring : Wicked sampler! Yam Who’s mix is my choice!
Matthew Kryskot : I thought they no longer had a Penis?… will play Do It Go for sure.
Ryan Cavanagh (Wolf + Lamb) : Lovin both sides! Super Funk!
James Teej : Very cool package, loved this series
Chris Duckenfield : Probably my favourite one yet !
The Revenge : You can’t knock ‘The P’ … 21st century slap and tickle. Nice.
Disco Bloodbath : Loving Omega man….deepness! Delay central
Eric Duncan (Rub N Tug) : Sounds good
Jay Tripwire : This is awesome..just fucking awesome.
Jimpster : Both tracks are great but will get most plays out of Omega Man i reckon.
6th Borough Project : Liking both disco fuelled edits.
Yannick Labbé : Yam Who Edit all the way! great work! Love it!
Pete Herbert : Yes indeed some hot edit actione! very handy, will be dropping these for sure….
Faze Action : Nice work can use both of these full support from The Faze camp
DiskJokke : Love the Yam Who edit, flows beautifully
Ashley Beedle : A nice couple indeed. The Yam Who comes out on top but will be definitely playing both tunes.

The irrepressible Mat Playford is back with his second release for PAPER.
The Inflection Point EP was written especially for to launch his Ibithan – We Love party this week setting up this summers Space residency.
Mat is one of house music’s emerging talents with his productions hitting the sweet spot for DJs such as Sasha and Paul Woolford. His debut release for us ‘Tuning Issues’ received a five star review in January’s DJ Mag nailing peak time floors from San Paulo to Lisbon to London.
The Inflection Point EP nods to the golden age of house music when Tribal Records reigned supreme and PAPER was but a glint on the Hard Times dancefloor; everything tied together with 00s production and know-how.
Advice in Café Sydney is deep, techy and swinging with a dirty off-kilter bass holding down an analogue riff that works a killer groove.
The Breath has an Erik Kupper sound to it that is deep soulful garage and sounds like a 7am moment on the Med, especially as the synth solo does it’s thing.
Finally Inflection Point is deeeeep and sparse but with balearicy washes tied round a tough and driving bottom end. Phoar!
Jim Stanton – Horse Meat Disco- “Great track deep n groovy. support!”
Laurent Garnier “Really like “the breath” Will play this a lot”
Murray Richardson “Well smart ep – like all the trax on this – perfect for russia this weekend!”
