Blast Off

A 12 track downtempo album (45m 14s) — released May 27th 2016 on Wah Wah 45s

Leeds-based 6-piece band Paper Tiger is without a doubt one of the most

eclectic acts on Wah Wah 45s' roster. This creative collective's audible

aesthetics feature a wide-range of sounds: from futuristic hip hop beats

to funky and danceable electronic breaks, infused with grime and post-
dubstep vibes, and topped up with witty wordplay.

Blast Off is Paper Tiger's second album, following their 2013 debut Laptop

Suntan, and it represents a big step-up for the project, the result of

refining and defining their process and sound, making it funkier, more

live-sounding and experimental than their previous work.

The band's distinctive playing is nicely supported by a heavy string of

guests, such as Grammy-winning vocalist and producer Shafiq Husayn (Sa-
Ra, White Boiz), teenage underground wunderkind Chester Watson, and

Stones Throw signee Pyramid Vritra (Odd Future), making Blast Off a

genre-defying showcase of flows, rhythms and improvising skills. The

album was mastered by LA's beat scene lynchpin Daddy Kev, founder of

Low End Theory and owner of Alpha Pup Records (Flying Lotus,

Brainfeeder).

Isn’t it lovely? Wonderful, lovely stuff. - Lauren Laverne BBC 6Music

A wafer thin mint of audio deliciousness... a unique hybrid of live instruments backed by electronic production techniques that lands somewhere between BadBadNotGood, Thundercat, DOOM and Flying Lotus. Basically, it’ s an amalgam of the best of multiple underground scenes. - Passion of the Weiss Passion of the Weiss

Sparkling live future bass music. Paper Tiger manage to put together all that’s best about current electronic music together in one package. Intricate but punchy, weird but very wonderful. - Joe Muggs Mixmag

Nice to hear British beats as good as you’d get on Brainfeeder. - DJ Mag DJ Mag
