The South Wests answer to Cut Chemist is back with another slice of soul and breakbeat action. An uptempo soul track on the A side backed with a cut and paste b-boy breaks journey. Following his debut album "Fallen On Def Ears" released in late 2009 Para has been working hard on his next album. His debut was a breakbeat heavy trip into new school funk. The follow up is heading deeper into soul territory as Paras sound matures. For "Its Just Our Way" Para has once again called in Caitlin on his vocal duties but he kicks things off with a mighty bass line hook before Caitlin intros the beat with her unique vocal style. As ever with a Para track the track is underpinned by a tidy breakbeat which Caitlin turns into her own. "This is the melody..." and its catchy too! Flip for "Paradee". A couple of tracks on Paras debut album have turned into b-boy classics getting played at all the top battles around the world (Battle Of The Year, Freestyles Sessions, BC One...just search on youtube) and this is track is destined to follow that course. The keys, bongos and hi hats of the intro are perfect for toprockin and the battle should commence once the drums drop! The keys and vocal hooks give the beat a bit of variety. "Bet you feelin like you like it..." We certainly do!
Para is the South Wests answer to Cut Chemist!! His 2nd 7" on Breakin Bread is a storming piece of dancefloor action backed with an infectious summertime foot shuffler.
A. Its The Hornet The A-side here is a hard edged dancefloor midtempo monster, full of hooks and some dope cuts from Para.
B. The Hide Away The B-side showcases a new softer side to Para with a summertime foot shuffler reminiscent of Quantic and Plantlife and a chorus that sticks in the mind. Festival action!
Para, a DJ and producer from Swindon, was introduced to hip-hop around 1988, having a local scene that was active in all elements of Hip Hop Para quickly learnt about the history and was instantly hooked. After experimenting with all elements he decided to focus on Djing.
Para began by making a series of Mix -tapes which he would hand out locally. These developed into a series of cut and paste mixes that took the idea of cut and paste to the next level.
Para is the South West's answer to Cut Chemist. Busting straight out of Swindon he's well known around the UK for his battle weapons, turntablist skills and storming DJ sets. On the A side Para shows he's maturing beyond hip hop tracks. This is a radio record that builds as he brings in different elements of the catchy, up tempo beat and dares you not to nod your head. To top it all off he brings in Caitlin from Slo-Mo for vocal duties and she delivers a classy and heartfelt performance. The B side is a cut and paste record like only Breakin Bread can do. Beats to make you dance, hooks galore and some cutting and scratching. Para fits nicely into the Breakin Bread stable as another purveyor of quality, breakbeat tinged, funky as hell, dancefloor music.
