MAde – Wall To Wall Carpet EP

Paper always has an eye on Norway as a hotbed for new artists and MAde come out the starting gate fully formed with a brilliant EP of Scandinavian fjord funk.

You’re The One is a downtempo slice of Northern sunshine destined for Balearic classic status. Lush synths, pitched down drums and a soaring vocal makes this a go to track as the sun dips over the horizon.

Optics ups the tempo with a deep and melancholy house cut that nods to the 90s. Beautifully restrained with a wonky vocal, hypnotic synth riffs and dreamy pads, it is early morning ecstasy music to put a smile on the face of the most hardened clubber.

LA resident, Art Bleek delivers a remix of pure deep house class. Sparkling soulful production drives the 4/4 drums, subtle arps, keys, sax and vocals as they weave their hypnotic main floor magic.

Finally, rising Tromsø star, Third Attempt keeps You’re The One downtempo but strips things back and adds soul. The world fades away and things don’t get any better when this is spinning.


Juno: Their sound is more Royksopp than Todd Terje or Prins Thomas, though their use of colourful synths and clear boogie influences makes them a unique offering.

Daco: “Love the eighties vibes!”

Andy Wilson: “Original mix is very nice but Third Attempt is my fave here, perfect for summer days in ibiza”

Rich Hall (Super FU/Paper Street Soul): “You’re The One OG and third attempt remix for me, bostin”

James Rod: “Genial E.P. thanks for the music!”
