Here is the first EP in a double header to mark Paper’s 150th single release.
2 Billion Beats’ Tom and Col have been sat in their studio wearing Day-Glo and high tops waiting for the invention of the hoverboard to no avail. So to kill time they cranked up their collection of 80s synths, set to work and came up with a couple of tracks that could soundtrack Summer 2013.
Noise In Your Eye is a BIG floor disco track that plugs an LCD Soundsystem shaped hole. So much so that it was played by James Murphy at The Warehouse Project this Christmas. The mystery is, nobody knew how he got hold of it but a wayward licensing CD is thought to be the culprit!
Heavy 4/4 beats and a locked down bass start things off before the piano is intro-ed, followed by strings and the sample weaving it’s way in and out. With synth noodlings, the track keeps building before it breaks for the chord change and all sorts of mayhem breaks out.
Full Moon Boogie is on a similar tip of 80s inspired disco and it’s all about the piano at the end. A stuttering synth bass and nagging top line build tension until 2/3rds through when it drops to a piano that’s been nicked from the middle of The Hacienda’s dancefloor at 1.30am on a Saturday night in 1993.
Ralph Myerz – REALLY digging Noise In Your Eye. I’m a huge fan of 2 Billion Beats but really feel that they have taken their stuff to the next level with this release. Full support from me for a looooong time!
