2 Billion Beats – Noise In Your Eye / Full Moon Boogie

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!

The Glimmers – Love it!

Tensnake – Both tracks deliver, nice disco jams

Eric Duncan – Really FUN!! Will play both.

Hot Toddy (Crazy P) – Noise in Your Ear pushes all the right Nu Disco buttons!

Dave Jarvis (Faith) – Oh yes! Ready for the Garden Festival Croatia 2013 Faith boat action!!!!!! Bring it on!]

Drop Out Orchestra – Great groover.

The Dead Rose Music Company – Boogie goodness!!!

Aeroplane – Cool release!

Rocky (X-Press 2) – Nice! Noise In Your Eye is my fave.

Will Tramp (Homoelectric) – Fantastic EP! Love both tracks.

Sleazy McQueen – I’m totally into Noises in my Eye!

Cowbell Radio – Two of the best tunes of 2013, no doubt, both have been massive on Cowbell. Noise in your Eye just gets the nod, but Full Moon Boogie is a proper ‘break glass in case of emergency’ dance-floor filler! Amazing work fellas!

Severino Panzetta (Horsemeat Disco) – Pretty cool.

Ryan Cavanagh – Nice release, love both.

Daniel Solar – Noise in your Eye for me.

Wrighty (Soul Buggin) – Noise In Your Eye has got Soul Buggin’ written all over it, nice work.

Mugwump – Great piano boogie biz.

Get Down Edits – Excellent Release, Full Moon Boogie is gonna be the dancefloors friend for sure.

Joe Morris (Clandestino) – These are massive! Got electric elephant written all over them, which as luck would have it Im playing at so Ill defo give them an airing chaps

Stuart Knight (Toolroom) – Whos nicked my lino!!! This shit makes me want to do a back spin…Full Moon Boogie is the one for me…more quality from the PAPER crew …Nice

Richard Seaborne – The Reasons Why

PAPD47

Richard Seaborne – The Reasons Why

1. Original
2. Flash Atkins Mix
3. Sleazy McQueen Mix
4. Leon Sweet’s Negative Positive Dub Mix
5. Instrumental

Richard Seaborne has been described as “ginger and hard partying”. Quite what this means to the music he makes we don’t know but it could be important at some point. The Reasons Why is his debut for Paper Recordings and has been catching the attention on Soundcloud of the likes of Bill Brewster, Cosmic Boogie and Faith’s Dave Jarvis.

The original is a low-slung slice of garage disco that could have come out of NYC in the mid-90s. It’s got nagging percussion, a super heavy kick, driving hats and wobbling sub all wrapped round a chunky sample. The deadpan vocals are a take-down of a former lover and there’s something of the drag queen scene in it’s pithy bitchiness and attitude.

Flash Atkins takes it deep and dancefloor for a heads down main room shoe shuffler. It’s tribal and hypnotic with analogue synths washing in and out while the shifting bass takes centre stage as the vocals tell their story.

Next up Sleazy McQueen brings out The Reasons Why’s disco heart with a mix that sounds like a mirror ball on a Saturday night. With a popping Orange Juice bass circa Rip It Up, synth toms, that sample and classic house piano it’s modern disco at it’s best

Another new signing Leon Sweet brings his own pitched-down bottom heavy chugging sensibility to the table. He nags the vocal in before the tech bass sets off and the track builds with congas and acid line in to a reverbed big floor head-masher

Finally, the instrumental finished things off for those allergic to vocals.

Flash Atkins – Did You Forget To Shine?

Flash Atkins new EP

Deep disco vibes from Flash!

Super-numpty Flash Atkins is back with a new EP and it’s a bobby belting package of deep nu-disco vibes.

Flash Atkins – Did You Forget To Shine? feat. Sally Garozzo

1. Original
2. Dubstramental
3. Hot Toddy Mix
4. Jamie L Mix
5. Havana Candy Mix

Flash Atkins is a Super Hero who is neither super nor a hero. In fact he’s pretty much a waste of space who would sell his own grandmother for a free drink.

However he does still have the ability to manipulate sound and uses it to make high-grade house music for Paper Recordings.

Did You Forget To Shine? is deep nu-disco that first saw the light of day earlier in the year (in edited form) on the label’s warmly received compilation, Paper Cuts # 1.

Featuring the vocals of Sally Garozzo and based around an analogue bass riff, the track weaves hypnotically with pads and synths before stripping things back in the second half. A rhythm guitar is then introduced that builds things back up to the end.

Next up, there’s an instrumental version for those allergic to vocals. Keeping all the original elements but with added synth lines to keep the track bubbling, it again builds to the rhythm guitar and pads at the end.

First off the blocks, Crazy P’s Hot Toddy is welcomed back in to the Paper fold with an ace mix of deep soulful house. A rubber bass pins things down whilst snatches of vocals and Rhodes make way for a tougher synth riff to get it rocking.

Man of mystery Jamie L does his leftfield disco thing and works the groove over a live bass, lazy low-slung beat and live claps. It’s locked in heads down tackle that layers up the riff with a synth that changes it up a gear.

Finally Havana Candy brings his analogue sensibility to the mix with a deep and techy version that uses elements of the original and full vocals but with added pads, giving it a timeless Balearic electronic flavour.

DJ Nutritious – Possibly my favourite release of the year!

Roberto Rodriguez – Nice new song from Flash! All the versions are cool, but i think i will spin the Jamie L mix the most.

Andy Ash – Cool track, Hot Toddy remix is really nice.

Pete Herbert – Digging the Dub and Hot toddy mixes!!

Miguel Migs – Digging the “jamie L remix” and also the “dubstrumental”.

El Harvo (Future Boogie) – Feeling this!

Fred Everything – Straight to the Hot Toddy for predictable ‘ol me.

Drop Out Orchestra – Lovely. Original all the way

Cristophe (Futureboogie) – Loving the vocal and groove on this. Hot. Will play the original and the Hot Toddy mix.

Red Rack’em – Digging the Jamie L remix. Will play it on my show I think…

Dicky Trisco – Feeling that Jamie L mix!

Rune Lindbaek – Top stuff.

Lost My Dog – I’ll have a Hot Toddy please barman.

Daniel Solar – Original and/or Hot Toddy Remix. Not exactly sure yet. But overall a very nice release :-)

Sleazy McQueen – well, I heard the samples for Jamie L and Havana Candy and knew it was a good package, but to add Hot Toddy– now I know it’s GREAT!

Stuart Knight (Toolroom) – Flash is back….loving the grove on the Jamie L remix.

Bill Brewster (DJ History) – hot Toddy mix wins.

Trent Grimes (MOS Australia) – Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jerry Bouthier – Nice! Supporting.

Pete Gooding – Nice track, hot toddy mix is best for me.

Jim Baron (Crazy P / Ron Basejam) – Ooh yeh, Toddy’s mix for me. no surprises there then!

The Lovely Jonjo – So sexy really good slow groover.

Cowbell Radio – Another strong all-round package, a bit like Flash’s codpiece! Always had a lot of love for the original but for my dancefloor I think Hot Toddy just wins by a nose.

Harri – Nice tune Ben…..full support : )

Henri Kohn – Great singles. Hot Toddy mix for me but all mixes are hot.

Inland Knights – Jamie L mix is the one for me.

Jonny Miller – More quality from the most rubbish superhero of all time. The orig, dub and havana mixes would fit nicely into the deep disco set alongside Maurice Fulton, the toddy will work for the deep house bods and jamie’s mix i think will appeal to your joy orbison type people with expensive glasses. That mix i think is my fav mix too X JM

Death on the Balcony – Hot Toddy please!!!

Mighty Mouse – Original mix for me, great track, full support.

Marius Våreid – Hahaha, fantastic intro following this release! It is quality all the way here, but the Hot Toddy mix is my choice for the dance floor. My personal fav is the dubstramental of the OG. Well done!

Kiko Navarro – Good release, i will play Hot Toddy mix.

This Is Why We Dance – Quality underground disco-deep shizzle.

Stuart Patterson – oh no! Flash has gone will bent, must be all the lycra outfit, thankfully Hot Toddy bounces to the rescue and Jamie L darks it up. Oh damn, i might even play the original.

Pete Herbert – Digging the Dub and Hot toddy mixes!!

Bottin – Nice Toddy.

Moodymanc – All about the Hot Toddy.

Ian Pooley – HOT TODDY -&rt; LoVE !!!!!!

Aldrin Zouk – Sexy groovy original, dub & Hot Toddy remix.

Crazy Penis Mixmag Review - MARCH 2011

Crazy Penis – A Nice Hot Edit With – Textura Review

It’s pretty hard to take seriously a recording credited to Crazy Penis but, in fact, the group’s A Nice Hot Edit With … is seriously good. The band’s A Nice Hot Bath With … appeared in 1999, so it’s no great surprise to hear the 2010 re-work sound so deliciously old-school; in short, if you’re a fan of Yore’s deep, neo-classic sound and the idea of a vocal-less Chic likewise strikes your fancy, you’ll likely cotton to A Nice Hot Edit With just as much.

‘A Nice Hot Edit With – Sampler 3’

The third and final sampler from Crazy Penis’ ‘A Nice Hot Edit with’ album.

Crazy Penis’ debut album ‘A Nice Hot Bath With’ was one of the long players of 1999 and still holds a special place in many people’s memory, now in 2010 Paper have decided to hand over the tracks from this album to some of their favourite producers out there and as such have created the marvellous ‘A Nice Hot Edit with’.

For the final instalment Crazy P step up themselves to remix the excellent ‘Do it Good’, making the most of the fact that they manage to salvage the original parts by creating a brilliant disco fuelled, breakbeat driven anthem. Funk laden bass and tinkling Rhodes piano keys intertwine with tight guitar licks to form the basis for this superb re-invention of one of their favourite cuts.

On the flip the respected production duo Yam Who? take the reins and turn in a sublime edit of ‘Omega Man’ , taking the soulful funk of the original and twisting it into a nu-disco classic to keep the winter fires burning bright.
