Description

Various Artists - Paper Cuts #1

After a break of around 5 years Paper Recordings came back into the public consciousness in 2009 with a couple of reissues from its back catalogue. One of those reissues featured Mudd's wonderful re-interpretation of Keyboy's 'Viva Blue'; a track that manages to fuse deep house & disco influences with a beautifully twisted Balearic air. Looking back on the labels output since then, those very same qualities seem to permeate each and every release.

Seldom these days do record labels manage to move beyond transient trends to build a signature sound that's familiar yet remains challenging and surprising for the listener: ‘Paper Cuts #1’ perfectly captures that signature sound through the diverse yet cohesive sounds of its stellar artist line up.

As you go through this fantastically diverse collection, there's nothing formulaic to be found, yet each and every track shares an attitude, an approach to music making that links the artists through a shared musical genealogy. From the Scandinavian future funk of Proviant Audio to the delectable disco of Flash Atkins or the organic house sounds of Daco there is a rich depth to the recordings on offer here that is a testament both the quality of the producers involved and the musical nouse of Paper’s label team.

Alongside label favorites such as the aforementioned Proviant Audio, Flash Atkins & Daco are relative new additions to the family such as The Treatment and Sleazy McQueen, whilst on the remix front there are offering from the likes of Atjazz, Yam Who? and Brennan Green. As something of a bonus the album also delivers the previously unreleased ‘Dicky Trsico Soft Piano re-Rub’ of Sleazy McQueen’s ‘We Need to Reconnect’, which as the title suggests, is a superb piano infused disco house workout that really hits the mark.

‘Paper Cuts #1’ truly shows that this current generation of Paper Recordings artists have managed to carve out an identity of their own without being weighed down by the past and in so doing provide a solid bedrock for the next generation to flourish.

There are very few dance labels whose history goes back so far and even fewer whose future seems so promising.
