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.

17/11 – Shigeto, Paper Tiger and Denis Jones

We are very very excited about this party tomorrow. We’ve wanted to get Shigeto over to Manchester for ages. Support from Leeds’ excellent Paper Tiger and a brand new collab set from Denis Jones. DJs from Hoya Hoya, Herbal Sessions and Mind on Fire. In one of the city’s finest venues. Visuals from EMN and Upper Space. Tickets still available from SKIDDLE.

Check out this interview with  Shigeto with a few live clips…

Shigeto @ Islington Mill

Just less than three weeks now until Shigeto hits Manchester (sorry Salford) and Islington Mill for one of only two U.K shows.  He is supported on the night by Paper Tiger and Denis Jones’ new live collaborative project and advance £6 tickets are still available from Skiddle. It’s £8 on the door and certainly not to be missed.
