Paper Tiger 'Blast Off' Album Launch Party x Bastien Keb x Sarah Williams White x Wu-Lu x Wah Wah 45s DJs

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).

On April 1st, Paper Tiger unveiled Weight in Space, the first single to be taken from the LP, featuring the Grammy Award-winner Shafiq Husayn (1/3 of the iconic Sa-Ra Creative Partners). The track was remixed by Bastien Keb (One-Handed Music) and premiered on Music Is My Sanctuary, and just recently Complex UK hosted the first look at the video for Weight in Space, an animated galactic adventure.

Paper Tiger will be launching Blast Off in London, on June 2nd, at The Mangle, bringing the full band’s heavy live sound to the East London venue, for a night of space-funk and cyber beats. The line–up features live performances from Sarah Williams White and Wu-Lu, as well as DJ sets from the aforementioned Bastien Keb and Wah Wah 45s DJs.
