Research – Miss Ya

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.

Ron Basejam (Crazy P) – Well wonk-funk. Nice one!

Tim Love Lee – Really feeling this.

Get Down Edits – Feeling this guys!

Cosmic Disco – Nice chuggy discoid vibes! Early doors slap bass tackle. Thanks!

Bobby Beige – Really liking this,very sleazy dirty slice of /disco/funk with some neat guitars and piano lines. Will be giving this a whirl out in Amsterdam this weekend.

DJ Rocca – Go Go Time Mix for me.

Feodor AllRight – Go-Go Time mix is a cracker!

Billy Scurry – Sterling dancefloor vibes, really digging!

Neil Scott (El Diablo Social Club) – NIce traxxxx.

Joe Morris (Clandestino) – These are dope!

Dr Rob – It`s the rolling pianos on the “Go-Go Time” mix that work for me.

Advokkat – Cool track.

This Is Why We Dance – Go-Go Time mix for me here.

Deep South Audio – Both tunes show that the band have a swag in there sound . For me ill be sliding the remix late in to the DJ set when the lights are dark and the vibe is deep.

Ste Hodge – Moody & sassy in equal measures – Brilliant stuff!

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.

Research Juno Review

Research - Miss Ya - Juno

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.

Jamie L – In The Burg DJ Review

Jamie L - Dj Review

imgres

Jamie L gets a 9/10 DJ Review for In The Burg. He’s a mysterious figure of undisclosed origin and history who fits in to the Moodyman / Theo Parrish mold of heavy future disco; which his new production ‘(What We Saw) In The Burg’ nails.

It’s a heavy leftfield groove laid over broken house beats with a filtered bass, samples and deep vibe. The Detroit pad creeps up to the break and filters in and out as the track works it’s way through for locked down dance floor business.

Daco – Drip Dry

[soundcloud width=”100%” height=”136″ params=”” url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/playlists/604834″]

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.

BUY IT IN THE SHOP

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.
