PAPER TIGER / SULTAN ANT POP: LAPTOP SUNTAN REMIXED

Direct iTunes Amazon Juno Spotify YouTube

Since their humble beginnings in a Wolverhampton suburban bedroom, Leeds-based hip hop, space jazz and bass-loving outfit Paper Tiger have carved their own niche in the electronic music scene, both as a heavyweight production outfit and as a damned fine live band (sharing stages with the likes of Jaga Jazzist, Rustie, Gaslamp Killer, Daedelus, Alice Russell, Amon Tobin and many more).

Following the release of Laptop Suntan, their debut long-player on Wah Wah 45s, last autumn, plus a couple of highly rated mixtapes and a plethora of live shows across the country, this multi-talented six-piece felt it was about time they allowed some of their most noteworthy peers a go at re-working some of the album’s finest moments.

Hefty Amount

Sultan Ant Pop isn’t just any old remix album though (nor is it just any old anagram) as it not only features re-versions from some of the UK’s finest producers such as LV, Murder He Wrote and Werkha, but also a hefty amount of original Paper Tiger music that has never before been released.

From Sam Redmore’s bass worrying take of Gundam Bling, to Scrimshire’s delicate tempo-changing remix of Crossover and new tracks such as [White’s Dream] and [Uh-Huh], this album (like much of Paper Tiger’s work) will simultaneously trouble dance floors and bedrooms alike! Appetite whetting stuff in anticipation of new material to come in 2015!
