Paper DJ Tag Team # 2

 

The Paper DJ Tag Team #2 has landed.

3 tracks each, mixing into the previous DJs to create a non-stop, disco dancing & boogie enhancing alternative take on the live stream. Selectors this time round come in the form of Chris Massey with a few celeb pals who don’t move much, BB & Richie V from their very own Supernature Disco rave den then Anoraak drops the heat from his studio which will make you salivate over his synth collection! Homoelectric banger queen Gina Breeze lays it down from her loft studio with a UV tinge, Mix-Stress knows that all the best parties are held in the kitchen & drops bangers by the sink, we just about catch a few sights of Reeta & her red handbag whilst she mixes up a storm then Indigo Jung come at us live from their sauna which must be broke as they’ve got coats on. Finishing off the mighty Flash Atkins brings it home with a full on family dance off featuring friends from multiple boroughs.

Best of Paper 2020 – Flash Atkins Mix

While 2020 has been a massive shit sandwich with no ketchup, its been a great for music and let’s not forget that the orange lunatic got told to pack his toys and move on….see ya.
Its been a vintage year for us too us too as Paper Wave got in to its stride with brilliant albums from Popsneon, Stubb and The Secret Soul Society along with a flurry of downtempo beauties. Paper Recordings signed their first African artist in Camblom Subaria and the US represented with Mr. Tea, ThrillHammer and Ryan Kick. Paper Disco knocked it out the park with Anoraak, James Rod and Trash The Wax Vol. 8 while Denmark and New Zealand went head to head with Kennedy and Jahn Solo.
Flash Atkins dusted off his controller and blended it all for this end of year mix to see in to 2021 where we’re headed for the light. And just wait to see what we’ve got lined up for 2021….ooooooooooooooft!
Onwards.

Paper DJ Tag Team

Since lockdown the concept of online clubbing has taken off, often with unsatisfactory results. We like watching the back of a middle aged-man DJing in his laundry as much as there next person but the novelty has worn off now. Clubbing is about interaction, fun and being in the moment so in that spirit, here’s the “Paper DJ Tag Team”.

We asked our friends and family to film themselves playing three tracks, continuing on from the previous DJ in a digital back to back. It begins with Flash Atkins warming things up in his kitchen followed by Ed Mahon rocking his man cave, who knows what Leon Sweet is doing but by God he’s having fun, Danny Russell digs deep in Berlin while Leeds’ most finest selector Reeshy rocks a disco fuelled by a large glass of wine and dancing shoes. Crazy P’s Danielle Moore has her own loft party, Hot Toddy needs to tidy his room and Kimo performs musical surgery. By the end the night its peak time, roof raising scenes as Kim Lana and Julie Wills are in full party mode in what could well be day two of a three day rave-a-thon.

A new concept in clubbing?

Probably not.. . More fun than you can shake a light stick at?

Most certainly!

It’s a Flash Atkins Mix Meltdown!

Our favourite former Superhero has been busy behind the doughnuts and come up with two mixes of ver different sorts. First up is a selection of summer jams taking in disco, soul, edits and deep beats. And at the other end of the spectrum is a mixtape of JJ Cale favourites to mark the passing of a legend.
So get them downloaded and in your ears!

Flash Atkins DJ Mix – Winter ’12

Our favourite loser Flash Atkins has set up the decks in the back of his camper and done us a mix of damn fine deep house. There’s an exclusive preview of the new Farlet Silevester track After Hours that is out in March.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS – SANTA’S COMING

It’s been a great year for Paper and we’d like to thank everybody for spreading the love.

There’s more of the same next year so buckle for all things deep and disco from the Paper family including Proviant Audio, Jamie L, 2 Billion Beats, Sleazy McQueen, Leca, Kahuun, The Treatment, Flash Atkins, Ralph Myerz and Daco plus some fresh faces.

In the meantime, here are some winter warmers to keep you moving from the Proviant Audio remix competition that ran in the Autumn. These lost out on pole position by a whisker and were so good it seemed only right to put them out into the world!

Turntablists Unite – Get ready for UK launch

In what could pave the way for a re-launch in the UK, streaming and virtual club night site Turntable.fm has announced deals with ASCAP and BMI, the two major publishing rights collecting societies in America.

As previously reported, the US based site was generating a huge buzz prior to its shutdown, with established artists such as Diplo and Little Boots using the site to debut recordings of new tracks.

Turntable.fm is currently still in beta with invitations only through Facebook friends already on the site. 300,000 users have signed up so far and recording rights are taken care of in a deal with SoundExchange.

The service allows users to discover new tracks and create a virtual club room from music streams, DJing with other members and battling it out for audience approval. Each room has up to five DJ slots, with users taking turns whilst listeners rate them as either ‘awesome’ or ‘lame’.

There have been questions surrounding the legality of the site in allowing users to play tracks outside of current licensing agreements but it has been protected by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in the US, which allows for “non-interactive” streaming audio without requiring licences from labels and artists.

The deals with collecting societies should bring the service one step closer to legitimacy in the eyes of the industry and could lead to eventual global reach, potentially rubbing up against the likes of Spotify and Pandora in the streaming stakes.

Thanks to the “The Gen”
