Papa News

London based record label starts off heavily in season2006. Amongst others the label made a name through the famous Reel People releases just being reissued on Defected.

Legends Of The Underground - Original O.S.T. - Kindred Spirits

“A tale of good versus evil in a kingdom where rules don’t apply. A war has begun in a world unknown to man. A corrupted entity with only one intention in mind. Set in a modern world, based on an ancient myth. Mans guidance is the spirit of the chosen, his downfall is an ansatiable urge to possess more. As angels prepare for war, who will set the captives free? A race against time where two worlds co-exist, Legends Of The Underground... Fact, fiction or myth...?”

Colonel Red, Omar & Spoonface - Move Up, Young Style, She Don't Know My Name - Faada

follow up of the “BruQ Steppin” series on faada records. and this one is rightfully called as a double A-side 12”.

Reel People - The Rain - Papa

After Reel People's second guess release, they are back with another hit called „the rain“ for this year's spring/summer season.
„The rain“ is an uplifting Boogie-tune that cannot deny a proper portion of broken beat spices. No other than the mighty Domu got the job for the drum programming and of course he did, as expected, a good one on it.
