A debut release for both band and label, Parisian duo Paradis bring two eloquently produced tracks to Beats in Space in the form of the Parfait Tirage/La Ballade de Jim 12'. Admirers from afar of DJ Tim Sweeney's weekly on air institution of 12 years (from which the label takes its name), Paradis submitted demos hoping they might hack it for some play time. Reared on classical and jazz, turned young hip hop rebels, turned teen club crawlers, and then university machine tinkerers, Simon Meny & Pierre Rousseau grew out of genre jumping while young enough to stay ahead and settle into music making centered around melody and emotion. This touchstone approach is perfectly apparent on 'Parfait Tirage,' a track built around sublime synth ambiance, a compelling sequence lead, and what will be eventually unmistakably recognized as the Paradis vocal sound. The b-side, 'La Ballade of Jim', is a deep techno take on beloved French artist Alain Souchon's track from the 80s, and already a staple in Sweeney's live set.
