“Getting support from such luminaries as Gilles Peterson and Mary Anne Hobbs is no small feat, and the work of London producer Blacksmif doesn’t rely upon a simple formula. Swiping jazz progressions and longing vocals from vintage sources and re-assembling them to create a laid-back stepper’s rhythm complete with congas is one way of beginning to describe Blacksmif’s work on “Golden Horn,” but when listening to this unreleased tune, it’s the sumptuous sum of these disparate parts that hits hardest.”

Check out Blacksmifs remix of Paper Tigers illuminated out on Mind on Fire Records.

 

Following the release of Paper Tiger’s Illuminated EP on Monday, we head into Soup Kitchen tonight to celebrate, with sounds coming from Paper Tiger (laptop/sax set), Raphael Attar’s Variety Hour, Blacksmif, who’s debut EP dropped today, and Groovement and In The Loop boss Agent J. The Illuminated EP will be on sale, along with other MOF releases and it is free entry before 11, so get down early (Only £3 after though!). See you there!?

Paper Tiger - Illuminated EP Launch Party

We are very excited to announce the release of Paper Tiger’s Illuminated EP, hitting shops on 27th February.

Following the success of their debut ‘Worldwide Takeover’ EP and ‘Send Me’ single on Jus Like Music in 2011, Paper Tiger join forces with Mind on Fire Records for their first full vinyl release. The Illuminated EP features three superb Paper Tiger productions – Delight Dub, Illuminated and Modern Dynamics, and is topped off with remixes by Wisent from Lucky Me, who returned the favour with a Paper Tiger remix on his forthcoming EP, and upcoming UK producer Blacksmif who was recently Soundcloud’s artist of the day, and has his debut solo EP “And The Sun Rose Out” dropping in March on Synchronicity Records. With a limited run of only 300 copies, featuring full artwork by onefiveeight artist James Hayes, the record (and digital) drops on 27th February, before the band take to the road in preparation for a summer of festivals.

Check the link below for tasters of the tracks and look out for the Launch Party in Manchester on Friday 2nd March.
