SULTAN ANT POP – Released TODAY! (8th Sept 2014)

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.

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!

During my trip over to Prague at the end of 2013, the guys from LunchMeat decided it would be cool to make a live video of me performing on the roof of the National Gallery. So I am very grateful for there efforts and happy to share such a nicely put together bit of film.

SAMPLEPHONICS – Acoustic Abstractions

“Acoustic Abstraction one of the most inspirational sample libraries we have released to date. Developed by the insanely talented multi-instrumentalist Memotone, this beautiful collection of loops and samples has such a range of wonderful and diverse sounds, the first time we played it in the office, we were literally stunned to silence.

The sample pack is overflowing with acoustic instrument loops, textures, organic rhythms and sampling gems. Sifting through the sounds is like digging through a crate of rare vinyl, each groove a complete surprise and ready to be shaped into something new.

Expect to find evolving Guzheng, Clarinet, Piano, Guitar and Kalimba phrases, Music Box loops, Ethnic Percussion Grooves, Warped Feedback and Reverberant Effects, Bowed Strings and Prepared Piano Samples. There are also 5 full track mixes, with corresponding construction loops. The sounds can translate into almost any type of music or composition that requires organic textures and real acoustic instrument samplesc – from hip hop, house, garage, deep dubstep and dnb, to cinematic, ambient, acoustic and downtempo.

The loops and samples contained in this library are provided as 100% royalty free, straight up 24 Bit Wav. We feel obliged to give Memotone a big thanks for allowing us access to his extrordinary and simply stunning sample collection built up over the years…so cheers!”

My Sample Pack has been released.

SLOWCOACH is a new project by William Yates (A.K.A memotone). He has taken on a new alias to explore his less experimental influences. Here we see him put his fingers to jazz, hip-hop, funk and even a taste of soul. Frequently calling on his keys, fretless bass and drums to create the mood, the general feel is one of live performance rather than studio production. There is also a remix present. SLOWCOACH was called up to produce a remix for the Soosh album ‘Colour Is Breath’ on Error Broadcast. To get this remix and many others cut to WAX visit this LINK

Sonder:
n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—

A new project for my more organic work. More to come

It’s that time of year again, where I like to share a piece of music that reflects my love of spooks and unknown creaks and cracks in the night. Listen to an edit of forthcoming track ‘The Castle’ in the player below.
