B.G.Baarregaard – Partysvenskenes Dans EP

Paper’s Scandinavian connection continues with this release from one of Oslo’s finest residents. Although hailing from Reykjavik, B.G Baarregaard now resides in in Norway’s capital and its influence is clearly stamped all over this brilliant EP.

Partysvenskenes Dans has the kind of warm ‘n wobbly happenings that we’ve come to know and love from the scandi disco output. Plenty of resonance & space with a hint of Inspector Norse mean this treads on the right side of camp & kitsch whilst managing to pack enough of a stomp to ensure it blows up a dance floor.

(Got Me) Runnin’ jumps on a plane and heads straight to the late 80’s / early 90’s Manchester club scene. Big piano stabs and a classic vocal make it a real late night jacked out affair with everything here from the glory years of clubbing.

Konur Go Karlar seems to take on board both its predecessors to deliver a cut that is drenched in cosmicness as well as a nod to classic UK house. Simple, down the middle & hooky there’s enough going on to please those that favour discos and late night dancing dens.

Justin Harris feat. Laura Vane – 1,2 3 Breathe
1. Original
2. House Mix
3. House Dub
4. Down Tempo Mix

Justin Harris, an acid house warrior since 1987 finally arrives on Paper with his debut release 1,2,3 Breathe. His CV boasts gigs at clubs like Panorama Bar, Fabric, The End, Back To Basics and Robert Johnson and remixes for The Human League, Tiefshwartz and Mathew Herbert on labels like Classic, SWAG, Crosstown Rebels and 20 20 Vision. Amongst his many collaborations, Freaks with Luke Solomon is best know for their leftfield take on house and groundbreaking label MFF.

Breathe 1,2,3 is deep house with a soul that has a stamp of quality running through it like a stick of Blackpool rock. Minimal drums, analogue bass, piano and synth strings set things up for Laura Vane’s heart felt and timeless vocals.

The house mix ups drive and tempo but retains the deepness. Along with additional classic house stabs, the piano and strings give the track some nice chord progressions as the vocals tell their story.

The dub strips things back even more with the vocal stabbing and out as the music unfolds.

Finally, the down tempo mix breaks things right down for a lush version that aims at the hairs on your back of you neck and hits.
