Paper Recordings continue their journey, with the release of Jamie L’s “(What We Saw) In the Burg“
Jamie L is a mysterious figure of undisclosed origin and history, who’s music seems to fit somewhere around the Moodyman / Theo Parrish mold of heavy future disco; a sound which Jamie nails on the head with his latest production, ‘(What We Saw) In The Burg’.
It’s a heavy leftfield groove laid over broken house beats with a filtered bass, samples and leftfield vibe. The Detroit pad creeps up to the break and filters in and out as the track works its way through for locked down dance floor business.
Next up, Havana Candy breaks out the analogue and takes things deeper and techier. With a rolling bass and tweaking acid line, it cuts to a Rhodes before filtering down and riding back to the heads down groove.
Cottam steps up for Paper for the first time and demonstrates what all the fuss is about with a very special mix. Clocking in at 9.41 it’s deep, tough, soulful house that crosses the 4/4 divide from techno to disco and deep house to soul.
