“Isn’t it lovely? Wonderful, lovely stuff.” – Lauren Laverne (BBC 6Music)
“Puts together all that’s best about current electronic music. Intricate but punchy, weird but very wonderful… this is really lush stuff.” – Mixmag
“…it is rare for a band to make tracks with swing and groove with enough canvas to let rappers glide. It reminds me if Thievery Corporation came out fresh today, fusing several genres in fresh ways, without the baggage that trip-hop comes with.” Jeff Weiss, Passion of the Weiss
Having enjoyed a peaceful, centring moment on their journey towards the release of their long-awaited third album ‘Rogue Planet’, the electronic space-funk outfit now kick things up a notch with new single ‘Lullaby’. Slowly, a hazy atmosphere descends, full of oscillating frequencies and celestial melodies. This gives way to the rhythm section, who then introduce a laid back, head-nod inducing beat, allowing PT’s in-house MC Raphael Attar to take control of the mic, leaving earth behind and delivering a heartfelt message about solidarity through hard times. The band’s very own DJ Vital is also on hand to take things up a notch with a more foot friendly rework that should do the business on more discerning dance floors.
Having previously collaborated with the likes of Shafiq Husayn, Chester Watson and Foreign Beggars, electronic space funk outfit Paper Tiger return from an explorative journey to the dark edges of the cosmos with their long-awaited third long-player ‘Rogue Planet’. The Leeds and London-based outfit (whose collective playing credits include Yellow Days, Werkha, Nubiyan Twist, Cinematic Orchestra & more) once again seamlessly combine elements of live recording and improvisation, their emphasis on blending organic sounds with electronic production techniques. The result is both interesting and technically proficient, but remains vibrant, colourful and funky – captivating both in headphones and on the dancefloor.
