We were made the DJ Mag’s end-of-year Vital Label. Whoop whoop!
The excellent Undeleted (Sean Smith to his Mum) has written as retrospective of Paper to coincide with out 200th EP that is on the horizon. It has contributions from some of the people who have been on it including Miles Hollway, Sleazy McQueen, Danni & Chris from Crazy P, Chris Massey, Ben Davis, Rune Lindbaek and a host of others.
It’s a wonderful read brings back a whole host of memories.
Brew up, have a biscuit and settle down for a read
This is one of those mix projects set up by chance which ended up producing one of the best slices of music on the label. John Andersson and Johan Emmoth from Zoo Brazil (LAID) produced their remix with an 80’s influenced guitar and synth…In fact Stuart Price (Les Rhythm Digitales) used this on his Fabric mix compilation to great acclaim, in addition Faze Action set down perfect rhythm induced disco fare and Reset (Salt City Orchestra’s alter ego) provide the final audio magic. This remastered release (Alain Paul from One Million Mangoes in Berlin) includes all the vocal and dub mixes that were produced in the series.
“Paper Music are currently riding high in the album charts with their Paper Cuts #1 compilation, a collection of their finest moments from the last five years or so. As some of you may know I provided the sleeve notes for the CD version of Paper Cut’s and in support of the release I thought it would be cool to go through my Paper Music collection and dig out a selection of my personal favourites from the first 10 years of the label (1993 – 2003). All the tracks in the mix can be purchased from Juno or from Paper directly and I’ve also included a link to the Paper Cuts compilation – just in case you haven’t already bought it. :)
Paper has been pushing the creative envelope since 1994. We have released over 2000 tracks created by over 500 artists, producers, and remixers in over 50 countries. Our style ranges from deep house and disco to Balearic and leftfield on its three imprints, Paper Wave, Disco and Recordings. The label has evolved to incorporate Paper Vision Films, which made the award-winning Northern Disco Lights with two films currently in production and the critically acclaimed podcasts Paper Talk, Paper Air Waves & Paper Radio. It continues to be one of the world’s best-loved independent record labels, operating as a thriving and exciting cottage industry.
