There’s a progressive arc in the sound of PaperMacheTiger’s music, incorporating the acid and techno sounds of Detroit and Berlin whilst also delving into the underground house sounds that reference London and Chicago and in turn exploring the deeper underground flavours that encapsulates dance music culture as a whole. The wide-spanning influences which shape their productions are testament to their deep roots as artists. A dedication to explore underground electronic house music in all its forms, taking in a wealth of influences from various genres. PaperMacheTiger’s compositions are shrouded with something like the veil that separates the future from the present. All their music feels like a journey into the art of production made with an apperception of the sounds from the wider electronic music scene, exploring the narratives of ‘what is electronic dance music’. The music is engaging, yet thought provoking, which can be enjoyed equally on the dancefloors or via popular listening mediums.2020 was a challenging time across the dance music industry, however with releases on scene defining labels such as Nervous Records, Induction Music, Black Riot, Plastic City, Triangle Records, Bombis, Whore House, Sr. Events and Bosh Recordings as well as remixes for Mark Reeves’s La Playa on Ibiza brand Do Not Sleep – the duo were not hanging around. Get ready for a wonderful Back To Mine selection….
