Project Sound is the follow up to last year’s Project Fear compilation and keeps it global with the freshest house music originating from South Africa to Norway and the USA to dear old Blighty.
There are new artists to the label like Tumisang Pooe, Mark Zowie, Erik Skantze, A Band Called Oh and Mr Tea as well as more familiar names like Flash Atkins, Fingerman, Daco, Jonny Miller, Mental Overdrive, Ryan Kick, Leca, 2 Billion Beats, Kimo and Rave-enka as part of Nattmat. Tracks cover the deeper side of house but all pack punch and sealed with the Paper stamp of approval.
Buy it on JUNO and all good digital shops.

Diskobeistet’s Birkelunden EP touched on the classic paper sound with added Norwegian vocals and was a hot one for us last year. So hot in fact that now we’ve stuck it through the remix machine just in time for summer.
Vinny Villbass takes it across the ocean and gives it a stripped back NYC spin. The result is a no messing, late night jacked up workout with added hypnotising synth shots and rolling drums & percussion but still retaining the original hooky chords.
Richard Seaborne never fails and this time he channels the spirit of Todd Terry by way of Leeds. Machine gun snares, filtered bass and keys aim straight between the eyes and score a bullseye for dance floor dynamite.
Haugli takes the groove deep but his mix ramps up deceptively with a three note synth rolling bassline that steams along like a lost take on a Johnny Cash session. Chords & pads from the original swirl in & out to up the cosmic ante for a very playable slice of modern dance music.
Boxing things off is new track Dypet that rolls a phatty and thumbs a lift to the after party. Lazy, hazy almost broken beats with some serious enticing synth sounds and basslines make this a definite addition to any discerning post club mixtape.

Our collection of the finest dance floor detonators returns for a third helping and on this hat trick appearance we welcome new friends to the fold alongside some of Paper’s tried & tested boogie constructors.
Volume 2 featured in sets from respected selectors such as Maurice Fulton, The Unabombers, Ray Mang, Pete Herbert, Chris Duckenfield, Fingerman & Leftside Wobble (amongst many) and blazed it’s way to the top of the Juno charts. Leon Sweet’s Sunny Bigler became undoubtedly THE track of the Summer and was heard at Electric Elephant, The Garden Festival, Festival Number 6, The Warehouse Project, BBC6 Music and was Mixmag’s ‘Tune Of The Month”.
Volume 3 keeps on keeping on with some fresh faces but seasoned producers none the less; Julian Sanza, Red Rack’em, Get Down Edits & Kohib all provide killer cuts alongside members of the Paper family such as Kooky & Damoon, Rave-enka, Beat Boy, Robot 84, Flash Atkins with Crazy P’s Danielle Moore plus Chris Massey who debuts the birth of a new collaboration project with Homoelectric’s Will Tramp.
New blood comes from Kohib, Gold Boy, Spiral, Skinny Dipp, DJ Steevo, Smashed Atoms & Spleen Underground who all make their presence well & truly known.

“Damn what a release! Support for sure!”
“Dunn & Massey is the absolute stand out for me, proper tops off and poppers at 3am acid disco Flash Atkins and GDE are also worth a spin or two”
Our Norwegian friends De Fantastiske To deliver the goods once more in this slam dunk/home run/golden goal (delete as necessary) of an EP. If you like serious body shaking house music then prepare to hold on tight!
Folk Og Ferie starts off and its all kinds of ace-ness, marrying balearic tinged disco with jacking Chicago type house all sprinkled with that special Norsk cosmic dust. You don’t know whether to raise your hands, blaze up a fat one, order a cocktail or just dance, dance, dance! Maybe try all four?
Teknokofte runs out of the gate with snapping Roland 909 percussion and its sights firmly set on melting your face. A hooky bassline that’s drenched in squelch sits hand in hand with stubby strings & jazz infused chords.
Orgeldoner slows things down to take you into a purple haze of blessed out yacht rocking balearic disco. 80’s bassline with hooky chords, sustained string action and of course that signature Norwegian special sauce ties it up nicely.
Sunshine feat. Jay Nemor is like the long lost brother of a Gil Scott Heron track with it’s super laid back grooves. Dreamy rhodes, jacked up percussion and a sweet vocal make this fit perfectly into the “Nu-jazz balearic disco lounge house whatevs” category.
