Since working on the Northern Disco Lights documentary a few years ago, Paper Recordings has consciously championed new artists from the Scandinavian country's thriving electronic music scene. They've uncovered another here, "Fjord funk" specialists MAde. Their sound is more Royksopp than Todd Terje or Prins Thomas, though their use of colourful synths and clear boogie influences makes them a unique offering. In its original form 'You're The One' is a wonderfully pitched down Balearic synth-pop number rich in dubby bass, grandiose synthesizer chords, quirky lead vocals from Mirjam Ondal is immersive electronics. It comes backed with two remixes - a tidy nu-disco meets deep house take from Art Bleek and a warming, dub-influenced downtempo revision courtesy of Third Attempt - while bonus cut 'Optics' is a bolder chunk of Scandolearic nu-disco/deep house fusion.
