Third times a charm so they say, well we’re putting that to the test with our latest edition of the Paper Tag team mix series.
Originally dreamt up during lockdown as our alternative take to the DJ live stream but with multiple jocks playing 3 tracks each, where their first track was the previous DJ’s 3rd track & so on…
This latest selection starts off with one of the finest selectors to come on our radar in recent times Léna C. from her Hebden Bridge base with a globe trotting selection of vibes (as are present in her amazing Reform Radio shows)…
Following on from Léna is Mr super balearic Chris Coco who goes full namaste position with fetching stetson….he’s followed by the Lakeshouse crew coming right at us direct from rooftop in Norway (The Beatles got nothing on these guys!) with some live jamming over the top of their set.
Supernature Disco’s very own James Greenwood aka Semi Skimmed Edits joins the dots from Norway to Whalley Range and goes to town from his record/studio/ room before the mighty Muddy Feet closes things off with a hat trick of house laced bangers from her immaculate looking studio room (I wish mine was a tidy as that)..
Tuck in…more to come…hopefully a Balearic tag team en route, watch this space…
We have unearthed some rare footage of Robodisco in 1999 and it is the time Soane tore the roof off Planet K. The Paper crew were out in full effect, with a few early doors liveners in the Briton’s Protection before hitting the venue where Erik Rug warmed up and Soane took over… things get hazy from there.
There is also footage of the after party but it’s probably best left in the archive. Trumpets were involved.

The fantastic video for Stubb’s The Love You Once Regret feat. Charlie Sinclair (Sylvette) was made by the super talented animator Caleb Riley.
Based around an ancient tree spirit with nods to Studio Ghibli and Pan’s Labyrinth, it is a comment on the Climate Emergency and how trees offer solution and salvation. Charlie Sinclair brings the soul to the epic, cinematic song and make sure you hold tight for the soaring chorus at the end.
Taken from the album Stubb – Canopy.

The first show of 2020 and the mighty Jazzanova are on board. Ben spoke to Juergen Von Knoblauch about their new Sonar Kollektiv 21 compilation, Berlin and how it all began plus there’s a unique half-hour DJ mix. Add to that a preview of what the Paper labels will be putting out this year, and you’ve got a doozy of a show.
We were made the DJ Mag’s end-of-year Vital Label. Whoop whoop!
We’ve had some great reactions and press in hitting our 25th Birthday so here are some highlights.

DJ REACTIONS BELOW
I’m a massive fan of Paper since day one. I have all of those already but these will beat my home made vinyl rips I’m sure. Thanks to one of the best house labels that ever was.
Great release, thanks for this! Paper used to be a favourite of pretty much every house DJ in my hometown of Essen back in the day. While some of my personal Paper favourites didn’t make it there are also some tracks I didn’t know at all!
What a great idea to bring out all these incredible pieces. I remember I played a lot of Da Kingue D’mazda, Bust A Bubble and the all the crazy P stuff. It was really an essential label and really based on quality!
This is a must have collection right here.
WOW! What a collection of Wonderfull tracks!! Paper recordings is a MUST….super proud to have released on that label me too
I think I put some music out on Paper! My memory has gone. A big salute to Ben Davis and an extraordinary label. 25 years more please!
Only had a couple of these from back in the day, but love the ones I didn’t know,
Lots of good stuff here though there are others I would’ve preferred to see too. Hard call to make with that label.
What a collection! Been a massive fan for years, nice to have a compilation like this! Too many amazing cuts to single out!
What an amazing compilation. Happy Anniversary Paper Recordings.
I’d love to get involved with this.
Finding this is my inbox after a month of holiday puts a smile on my face :) Paper has been such a big part of my sound for the past 25 years and always brings the right vibe and energy to the floor. Great compilation of this stellar label, which is still going strong, respect!
Amazing!! I was a huge Paper fan!! Thank you!! Happy Anniversary Paper!!
Fan of the label for years. What a great comp. So many great tracks after another. !
TOM FINDLAY (GROOVE ARMADA)
I don’t know where to start on this it sounds so good!
TRISTAN JONG (GRATTS / EMSEMBLE)
Big Papererecordings fan here as you know :) A few of these I have on the shelves.
Paper gems here ….how can you not love this all in a handy package.
Too many killers to pick a favourite (or even two!) A fitting tribute for a Northern Powerhouse of a label. Fantastic release!
Absolute Aceness! What can be seen by each Album is the breadth of work, and GREAT work at that, put out by Paper. One (Crazy P) is like meeting old friends for a beer.. tracks you’ve known, played, loved over the years… Beautiful!
The other (Flash) is like finishing the beers, making the call, and going out out! Hitting the dancefloors with said friends and ending up in Barbs, on a beach or in a field or a bashment. And this is what Paper did.. Made you feel like you were part of the label/family.. you felt like they were releasing stuff for you and your mates because they knew what you were into, even before you did.
And the fact that it is still doing that now is a huge testament to the never ending search for great new music by the people/family behind the label. (we know who you are), and we thank you! BRAVO! and on to the next 25 yrs!!
STUART PATTERSON (FAITH/ THE DATE / MI SOUL RADIO)
Ah the glory days when Crazy had a penis and I used to get sent 12 inches in brown paper bags. Absolutely essential UK label.
HARRI JAMES HARRIGAN/ SUB CLUB

FISH GO DEEP
Loved paper over the years had many a great night with Miles and Elliot in Sir Henrys. Still play Downtime to this day nice to see it all been released again.
What a great compilation and label.
GRAEME PARK (THE HACIENDA)
Quality. Great to have these all in one place and to be reminded of how great some of these tracks are.
CHRIS TODD/ HOT TODDY/ CRAZY P
Nice selection by Flash, reminded me of a few tracks i’d forgotten about, Summer Of Love, The History Of The Future and the insanely good The Reasons Why?
