Legendary Manchester based Paper Recordings celebrates its 25th birthday in 2019 and a relationship with Norway that stretches back almost as far! In 1997 Those Norwegians’ Kilpisjärvi EP (Rune Lindbaek, Torbjørn Brundtland of Röyksopp & Ole Mjøs) was released and helped blueprint the Nordic-cosmic, left-field take on house, disco and Balearic that has gone on to conquer the world. Hell, they even made an award winning documentary about it ‘Northern Disco Lights’. ( Ben Davis from Paper Directed it…)
Third Attempt and Runther are part of the new generation and bring a uniquely original Norwegian sound to take things forward. Runther delivers his big room deep beats with subs, squelches, breaks and ambience. Third Attempt rewrites the nu-disco rulebook with funk, soul and a nod to the likes of Metro Area, Daniel Wang and 90s Paper. They are part of “The Tromsø Collective” and Volume 1 is the first EP in an on-going series celebrating the city’s creative talents with its designers, artists, film-makers, DJs and producers. It is a co-release with one of the cornerstones of Norwegian dance music, longstanding Tromsø label Beatservice plus Runther’s fledgling imprint, Run The Rave.
