Paris – One Night In Paris – Album Review

Looking for an album to impress the genitals off of you? Well Paris has produced it! “One Night In Paris” is truly one of the best albums so far this year and we’ve already had a Blossoms record.

Paris is a serious up and comer this year with eggs in multiple baskets, by far the biggest track on the 8 song album is “Gone” featuring the Ohio born rapper Trippie Redd and bloody hell is it a tune! The two artists blend and gel so well together you’d think they’d been working together for years, the reason I see this as a big deal is the current meteoric rise of Trippie and the effect this could have on Paris is something i’m keeping my eye on. The other big factor in his definite future is his tour alongside “21 Savage” and “Post Malone” one of the biggest names in the game and he’s going with him.

Paris bigged this album as a true reflection on who he was and what music he wanted to make and I’ll admit I was super pleasantly surprised by it, the mix of vocals and trap rap work incredibly well but what shines foremost is his ability to write and sing almost pop punk songs with a seriously hard trap beat underneath, the kids got talent and fully deserves all praise.

For me “ONIPO” is hit after hit and never hits a low point, the lyrics are catchy af and the beats really hit hard, the production on the album sounds brilliant blasting through speakers and headphones is really how it should be played. The lad is top quality and will definitely be a big name by the end of the year. Watch this space people. To be honest I challenge anyone to listen to this album a couple of times and not belt out “Is this love or is it lust” if you don’t I guarantee you are either dead or deaf.

Diplo feat. Lil Xan – Colour Blind – Single Review

I want to address one thing first, this EP is just great, some of the artist featured I have fallen in love with over the last few months. I eventually got to “Color Blind” with a faint bit of worry, so far I’ve liked one “Lil Xan” record and have yet to listen to his debut album but bloody hell did this surprise me.

Diplo has always been a producer that I was never going to follow, i’ve never been an EDM fan so it’s easy to miss releases like this but when I saw the line up for his “california” EP i couldn’t really miss out and I was completely right to give it a try.

For me this single does more for Xan than Diplo, it brings him out massively, his previous big hitters were on the slow side, slight no hoper vibes in his lyricism is fine but when it’s paired with beats that also fight with melancholic vibes it often gets shrouded and labelled as depressing. This isn’t so different for Diego Leanos but with Diplo’s roaring track behind him it really does propel his talents.

It’s an interesting track that I believe both EDM fans and Trap fans are going to love, personally over that last couple of days I’ve had it on repeat with not much else being able to push it out the way.
