Crazy Penis - PAPERVINYL03
PAPER's Crazy P releases in the late nighties/early noughties are for many some of best records released by both the act and the label and there is undoubtedly something special about the early work of this Nottingham duo and the full live band they became.
We have produced a series of limited edition coloured vinyl for release before the download and CD album in Feb 2011.
The first vinyl contains two cuts, the first of which is Greg Wilson’s epic thirteen minute edit of ‘Starwar’. Wilson needs little introduction; as one of the UK’s true DJ heroes he started his career back in 1975 and was a pivotal force in breaking electronic and post disco music to clubland through his residencies at everywhere from the Wigan Pier to the Hacienda.
The flip side of the release sees the wonderful Ray Mang whose DFA release earlier this year was a huge success. Here he delivers his ‘Dumpy re-rub’ of Smoothin' Groovin; a chunky, dark edged piece of floorfilling house with an electro/disco twist; simple, hypnotic and brilliant.
The Revenge - 'Both of these mixes are ace...full support'
Soul Clap (Wolf & Lamb) - 'Ray Mang for us! nice laid down disco vibation.'
Horse Meat Disco - 'Great to see Paper back! Both are great ...!!'
Richard Dorfmeister - NICE!!
Chris Dukenfield - 'Nicely crafted re-do's here Greg's version tips the
scales, probably on account of the associated half ton of defunct hardware'
Trus' Me - 'Feeling the Greg Wilson Edit
Diskjokke - 'Thanks for reminding me of that fantastic album, listened to it
continously in 1998 and will put it back in my bag now. nice remixes, liked
Ray Mangs the most.'
Eric Duncan (Rub N Tug) - Sounds great!!'
DJMAG - OCT Review
"Towards the end of the nineties, Paper were responsible for putting out some of the UK's best underground house music, including Crazy P's (then Crazy Penis) album debut. Now, a couple of tracks have been revisited ('Smoothin Groovin' and 'Starwar') and remixed for this primer release from a forthcoming remix album. Ideal first choices, Greg Wilson and Ray Mang, both add some slo-mo boogie intensity, but it's Wilson's spacey, electronic dub that steals the show." - Jonathon Burnip - DJMAG
