Paper Recordings

Still in party mode after last night's affair so lets keep up the pulse and celebrate British label, Paper Recordings' 20th year of existence!

A mix between house, disco and funk, the Manchester-based label has played a crucial role in establishing England as a mecca of 90's house. Best known for their work with Crazy P, they're also appraised for their promising picks from northern England and Scandinavia, most particularly Norway. The label has demonstrated quality and consistence since Day 1. Revered by connoisseurs and artists/label mangers alike it comes as no surprise they're still a solid name in the industry (Fina Records recently paid homage to the label on their facebook page).

It's always a pleasure to rediscover their archives, and today, we savor this small selection of our personal favorites. In line with the label's motto : funk-fuelled and bottom heavy ..we couldn't have said it any better ourselves!

Further interested? The Ransom Note recently interview]interviewedone of Paper's founders, Ben Davis for their 20th anniversary. Here, we learn about the label's latest Disco project, Paper Disco and their upcoming documentary "Northern Disco Lights". Looking forward!

J Dilla - Tribute

This month we celebrate what would've been the 41st birthday of J. Dilla !

Adored by the masses, the renowned, Detroit-born producer was coined "one of the music industry's most influential hip-hop artists" having worked with legendary names like A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Talib Kweli, Ghostface Killah and The Roots. A king of crate digging, Jay Dee mastered the art of sampling. His bold productions went beyond the status quo, fusing mainstream music with the work of lesser known artists.

To understand what a powerful impact the producer had on the industry, we bring forth a lecture with Questlove (cofounder of The Roots) at the Red Bull Music Academy in 2013. Here, Questlove says that after attending The Pharcyde concert, his drumming influence was forever influenced by Dilla's raw aesthetic.

Countless artists today praise the producer's timeless influence: his Midas touch has even inspired young electronic artists such as Tom Misch, a name whom we've mentioned before on the Délicieuse. Jay Dee has worked with the greatest MCs in the industry and in retrospect, his personal discography is equally as impressive on its own. We took the time to dust off some of his lesser known remixes in addition to revisiting the classics. The imprint of J Dilla will continue to reach beyond his tragically short lifetime, R.I.P 18/02/2006.

Greenville Massive - Rewind EP

The Danish duo, Greenville Massive have caught our attention with their latest output, Rewind EP. Released on the label Rhythm Cult of British producer, Paul Loraine, Simon & Jesper offer us a hypnotic dosage of cosmic deep / tech house sounds.

The eponymous EP title " Rewind " is a winning collaboration with singer Michelle Bee. Her nonchalant vocals brush against a wistful tech house beat, illuminated by the backdrop of jazzy percussion. Making way to the closing title, "Better", we're immersed in a blissful atmosphere of melancholic dub.. a dreamlike way to finish off the EP.

Before leaving you, we revisit the artists' The Suburbs EP (2011) and extract their golden title "LOST".. a sound that never gets old. We look forward to hear what's next from this promising duo....
