- Club by Para One
I first heard this French dude when his 'Beat Down' appeared on a Team Shadetek twelve inch years back. It was basically an astonishing futuristic French rap tune, fiercely vibrant and sharp shit. I loved it to bits, DJd with it and then, sadly, forgot about it. I forget so much me. Now I want to hear it again because his direction these days is more in the vein of compressed, punchy day-glo techno-pop bollocks like Daft Punk or Basement Jaxx. Bit more edgy on the beats front I suppose but hackneyed vocodery vocals and pompous 80's Prince synths make me feel a bit of sick in my throat.
Not saying he's a bad producer - this shit sounds particularly slamming in parts and would devastate a festival tent.....just to me 'Club' is going to be more use to the Calvin Harris crew than a jaded arse like myself. Epic, bouncy and commercial but with some rather effective lazer-trance bits that remind me what a great time I had watching Vitalic last Saturday at a festival in Lancashire. I think I'd like Para One more if I was really off my face in a field in the company of 5000 people. Not sober in my front room of a weekday.
