wah wah 45s are very proud to announce their first foray into the format of the future-retro fan – the cassette. and who better to deliver our debut release on this cult medium, than our very own electronic beat makers and hip hop nerds, paper tiger. over the last four years, the leeds and london based crew have been quietly pasting together some of the more interesting and subversive off-cuts and live interludes that were recorded around their two lp releases.
die 6-köpfige band paper tiger aus leeds ist ohne zweifel eine der vielseitigsten auf dem wah wah 45s label. dieses kreative kollektiv verfüget über eine breite palette von sounds: von futuristischen hip hop-beats zu funky und tanzbaren elektronische breaks, manchmal mit schmutzigen post-dubstep-vibes und angereichert mit witzigen wortspielen. blast off ist paper tigers zweites album nach ihrem 2013er debüt laptop suntan.
recent wah wah signings out of leeds, paper tiger, have spent the last few months preparing an arsenal of bass worrying electronic music ready to unleash upon the masses in 2013. their debut *priceless* ep for wah wah 45s, released last summer, was a visceral, uncompromising concoction of hip hop, post-dubstep and electro-soul music featuring resident wordsmith raphael attar (of *gary barlow* fame) and led to the band playing at festivals across the uk including lovebox, mostly jazz and the secret garden party to much acclaim. the *come correct* ep takes their sound one step further with riotous lyricism courtesy of uk hip hop / grime heroes foreign beggars, a mind-blowing dance floor remix from french uber-producer fulgeance, and a rather dashing spoken word piece featuring maze hills joshua idehen that comes complete with a gloriously wonky re-work from brooklyn trio archie pelago.
nice price deal !!! following the success of their debut >worldwide takeover< ep and >send me< single on jus like music in 2011, paper tiger join forces with mind on fire records for their first full vinyl release. the illuminated ep features three superb paper tiger productions – delight dub, illuminated and modern dynamics, and is topped off with remixes by wisent from lucky me, who returned the favour with a paper tiger remix on his forthcoming ep, and upcoming uk producer blacksmif who was recently soundclouds artist of the day, and has his debut solo ep >and the sun rose out< dropping in march on synchronicity records. with a limited run of only 300 copies, featuring full artwork by onefiveeight artist james hayes, the record drops on 27th february, before the band take to the road in preparation for a summer of festivals.
the next release on the london based snare tapes delivers an insatiable five track solo ep from the currently on fire and incredibly talented duckett. the freerotation regular displays the full palette of his jarring percussive sounds, blissfully melancholic synth work and a sprinkle of his tougher side.
poni hoax poppiest moment comes reshaped by chloe, one of our favourite french producer and djs. she managed to turn the original into a long hypnotic house journey driven by repetitive voice drones and cut ups and a pounding bass. deep, subtly melancholic, cold and warm at the same time, everything we love about chloe is there. on the flip side, principles of geometry exercise their passion for detuned synthetisers on the beautiful juno 106 chords of poni hoaxs paper bride, the opening track of their recent album.
a heart from your shadow is the debut collaborative lp from michael beharie (new york) and teddy rankin-parker (chicago). since graduating together from oberlin college, beharie and rankin-parker each veered into markedly different avenues. beharie joined up with the ever-confounding new york ensemble zs (northern spy, the social registry). rankin-parker became an on-demand cellist for his prowess in the work of improvisation and avant-garde music, lending his talents to a wide array of collaborators such as primus, iron & wine, steve reich, and pauline oliveros. rather than jump into stream-of-concious improvisation, beharie and rankin-parker chose to focus the albums themes via intricately composed pieces. a heart from your shadow could be described as protest music, brimming with intense energy, harrowing anxiety, and steadfast optimism. produced by michael beharie, mixed carefully by jim o rourke, mastered by james plotkin and cut to lp at d&m berlin. black virgin vinyl housed in poly-lined inner sleeve in reverse board-printed double-width spine jacket with spot uv finishing. first pressing of 300 copies.
beck verdankt seinem zweiten album odelay ganze zwei seiner insgesamt 5 grammy awards. vollkommen zurecht, das album mit tracks wie »where it’s at« und »devil’s haircut« wurde nicht nur aus kritikerreihen hochgelobt, sondern auch zu einem weltweiten radioerfolg.
sein siebtes album sea change ging in musikalisch neue wege. mitgenommen von einer schweren trennung, wurde sea change zu beck’s ruhigstem und emotionalsten album bislang. der größte kontrast folgte allerdings ein paar jahre später, mit beck’s achtem album guero. das genre-aufwühlende album schoss direkt auf platz 2 der billboard charts – als einziges seiner alben.
