Paper Recordings

Manchester-based house label that, along with Nuphonic, Pagan and Toko, championed the new wave of British deep house that emerged in the mid-to-late 90s, with releases from the likes of Salt City Orchestra, Crazy Penis, Kenny Hawkes, Problem Kids and Those Norwegians. Paper went on hiatus in the mid-00s, operating for a while as We Are Woodville, but returned to the fray in 2008. In recent years, the label has focused more on nu-disco and slo-mo grooves than its traditional deep house fare.
