Wah Wah 45s presents: Paper Tiger & Hunrosa LIVE
Paper Tiger return to the north-west for a full live set, plus their bassist Sam Vicary (The Cinematic Orchestra, Dominic J Marshall Trio) brings his Hunrosa project in support. Two of Wah Wah 45s‘ most distinctive and original acts come together for a great night of live electronic music.
Paper Tiger began in a bedroom in suburban Wolverhampton: music-obsessed teenagers comparing notes on African funk compilations, Japanese animation, soundsystem culture, apocalyptic space-rap and Miles Davis’ little-known collaboration with Sting.
Now based in Leeds, between them they have heaps of musical experience and knowledge from which to draw – a seamless blend of electronic wizardry and good old-fashioned jazz chops; squiggly space-synths and fidgety funk; Beats, Rhymes And Life. Their live shows have garnered praise from people across the high-low art spectrum (from Mary-Anne Hobbs to the Daily Star) and seen them share stages with Amon Tobin, Quantic, The Bug, Jaga Jazzist, Nightmares On Wax, Bonobo, Alice Russell, Rustie, Dam Funk, Daedelus and Gaslamp Killer to name a few.
Their productions have seen collaborations with vocalists Homeboy Sandman (Stones Throw), Infinite Livez (Big Dada), Josh Idehen (Benin City, LV) and Foreign Beggars. Their releases have had airplay on Radio 1, 6 Music, 1xtra, Rinse FM, XFM and more, plus support from Mixmag, The Wire, Q, FACT, Jamie xx, Coldcut, Slugabed, Bugz In The Attic, Mr Scruff, Alex Nut, LV and many more.
Paper Tiger’s debut album, Laptop Suntan, was released in 2013 via the Wah Wah 45s label. An accompanying remix album, Sultan Ant Pop, followed at the end of 2014, featuring contributions from Werkha (Tru Thoughts), LV (Keysound, Hyperdub), Murder He Wrote (Skint, Soundcrash), Memotone (Black Acre, Project Mooncircle) and more.
Their second album, Blast Off, was released in May 2016. It features Shafiq Husayn (Sa-Ra, Eglo), Pyramid Vritra (Odd Future, Stones Throw), Chester Watson, Sarah Williams White (First Word) and was mastered by LA beat-scene lynchpin Daddy Kev, Grammy-nominated for his work with Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar.
