UK duo Tom Lonsborough and Col Hamilton are 2 Billion Beats and present their third release for esteemed UK house imprint Paper Recordings. "Revolutions" is a dark and melodic journey track in the vein of the Life & Death sound; this one will really burn up the dancefloor! Second offering "Warm Feeling" is more on the deep house tip, featuring subtle and looped vocals, a humming dark sub bass and razor sharp synth leads: all working together to perfection. Full Pupp's Magnus International steps up to deliver an even darker rendition of "Revolutions" which delves down the twisted tech house route.
Paper Recordings chief Flash Atkins is a friendly sort of chap, and in recent times has spent has evenings locked in the studio with some of the label's lesser-known names. Here, he delivers the fruit of those labours: a collaborative EP featuring a trio of new cuts. "Wilco", with 2 Billion Beats, begins as a chunky, low-slung, disco-influenced house number, before morphing into a Moroder-ish chunk of electronic disco madness. CP hook-up "Malawi Chant" (also available in stripped-back Dub form) is a breezy afrobeat affair - all undulating rhythms, darting organs and African chants. Finally, "Calieo Square", with Havana Candy, is an atmosphere, picturesque slither of melodic nu-disco.
