PARANOID LONDON live (Paranoid London records)
Paranoid London Live is made up of two live performers + one vocalist. Two members are based in London and one in Tenerife.
“Paranoid London was born out of a desire to do things differently, Bored of how house music has developed, with vinyl hit so hard recently and labels desperate to do anything in order to sell a few records; we decided back in 2007 that the time was right for a brand new, old school acid label. We press on 180g vinyl, no downloads, no CDs and no promotion.
Using vintage synthesisers and outboard equipment we deliver warehouse/acid tracks with carefully selected vocalist to achieve the Paranoid London sound. Need we say more?”
FUNKINEVEN (Apron Records, London)
When it comes to laying down thick slabs of acid over a techno beat, FunkinEven has quickly got it down to a fine, playful art. When the Londoner hit out with his joyous ‘Heart Pound’/’Another Space’ 12″ on Eglo Records in 2010, our shoulder jabs sharpened, our interest was piqued and, in the years since, his tandem releases on Eglo and his own Apron Records have smacked it, exploring the continued fascination with and wealth of the 303 and 808 sounds.
