Proviant Audio aka Mathias Stubo touches down on Paper Disco, a subsidiary of Paper Recordings, dedicated to only the funkiest of floor cuts. The original of “Like Never Before” is a vocal-heavy bomb reminiscent of the 70s, with enough soul to set your skates on fire. The 2 Billion Beats remix is a discofied, Pepe Bradock style tune, whilst Ste Spandex deliver a gorgeous live take on the original, with slithering percussion and one mean lean bassline, while Sleazy McQueen provides a shaking, filtered version to add another level of funk. TOP!
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.
