Paper Disco continues its march onwards with an EP from Research. The band were recently heard on Trash The Wax and Day By Day on Paper Recordings last year had Psychemagik sprinkling their remix fairy dust.
Miss Ya takes things back to the 80s with big drums, off kilter bass and a straight ahead groove. Add moody vocals, lush pads for the chorus, a scattering of distorted guitars, Rhodes plus super good production and its a heavy track for DJs who know what’s what.
The Go-Go Time Mix takes things moodier for a more stripped back dubbier version but keeps all the rhythm in place. The vocal is used sparingly with the Rhodes, guitar, piano and congas all taking their turn to keep the track moving along as it jams out to the end touching on classic tracks as it goes.
It’s a refreshing take on disco that isn’t using the good times of the Paradise Garage as its inspiration but reaches for darker and more interesting corners.

Frank Lihaug -Nice and funky!
Black Mighty Wax – These grooves have infected my mind!
Ed Mahon (Cowbell Radio) – The original is instantly one of my favourite tunes of the year! Pure sleaze, and definitely the kind of track you could build a whole set around! The Go-Go mix is also strong, that piano came out of nowhere and nearly floored me! Definitely getting hammered all Summer!
Mutant Disco Radio Show – Go-Go Time mix for me.
Paper Recordings continue to explore their own, unique interpretation of disco in fine style with this newie from Research. “Miss Ya’ Is an odd foray into Balearica, when Balearic meant a little bit of everything thrown into the mix. Echoing the eccentric nature of Trevor Horn’s best productions, the original mix fuses a slo-mo body music groove with bluesy guitar, laid back drums and blissed out synth washes. Meanwhile on the digital flipside, the GoGo Time mix strips everything back to a sleazy punk funk crawler.
