From the Dance (RED) Save Lives charity album, Colorado’s Kill Paris offers his take on “There Will Be No Rain” originally from electro-hop group, Far East Movement. In signature Kill Paris fashion, the remix showcases a heavier bass throttle and follows the melodic pull of the Far East Movement’s vocals. With subtle, but detailed, hints of intricate production work throughout the dub style soundscape, Corey Baker delivers another purchase worthy tune for the RED album.

Kill Paris is getting into the Halloween spirit with his latest remix release of the beloved Ghostbusters theme song. Corey Baker flies under his alias Kill Paris and has developed a knack for a serious future funky style that is patented throughout all of his originals and one-of-a-kind remixes. Ghostbusters is no exception — as celebration of hitting 100,000 Facebook fans, Kill Paris is giving this remix away for free download on his SoundCloud page.
While OWSLA head Skrillex is boarding his own Mothership to go on a fall tour, he’s sending label delegates North to spread to good word to his Canadian brethren. The M Machine, Alvin Risk, David Heartbreak, Kill Paris and Blood Diamonds will hit the road this November on OWSLA Presents…Good Times, hitting four provinces in nine dates. Though the tour is something of a pared down version of the label’s 2012 outing, the tour recap above gives a taste of what to expect from the insanity. To get down, turn up, and wild out, check the tour dates below.
Kill Paris joins the likes of DJ Shadow in the kicked-off-the-decks club after being removed mid performance from the stage at M Nightclub in Honolulu, Hawaii. The eclectic producer, whose latest EP To A New Earth was met with critical acclaim, was removed by the club’s management for “not playing mainstream sh*t,” and quickly took to Twitter to publicly call out the club.
Kill Paris has a knack for reviving timeless records, specifically late 70s classics. While previous efforts saw Kill Paris remix Anita Baker’s “Ring My Bell” and Player’s “Baby Come Back,” Corey Baker now turns to Wild Cherry’s 1976 funk rock single, “Play That Funky Music White Boy.” Working in familiar midtempo territory, Kill Paris toys with the original’s world-famous bassline before dropping some serious 110 bpm heat. Disco, R&B, funk: Kill Paris has proven a master of all three.
While the rest of the electronic world is intent on the revival of disco, Kill Paris is making a strong case for the adoption of R&B. Although Kill Paris showcased a range of styles and influences on his To a New Earth EP, soul music is where his heart lies. His newest original seamlessly combines the deep yearning of R&B with modern midtempo tropes. With sensual vocal accompaniment from Marty Rod & Alma, “Falling in Love Again” inevitably recalls Spandau Ballet’s classic love-jam “Truth.” Make no mistake, this is baby-makin’ bass music in its purest form.
Rudimental’s ”Feel the Love” debuted nearly a year ago as the English electronic band’s biggest single to date. With its jive-worthy instrumentation and raspy vocal track from John Newman, the single displayed a keen R&B overtone, making it a prime candidate for a remix from Kill Paris. The LA producer has preserved the soulful, yearning appeal of the original while cutting the tempo in half for some affable drumstep/glitch hop. Kill Paris’s morphing bass is present throughout, as are his familiar lighthearted melodies. The cheerful remix is out now on Big Beat Records.

Kill Paris has made remarkable progress in the last year. It was just ten months ago that he delivered promising tracks like “Do You Need Someone” and “I Do Love You” to a growing fan base. It was four months ago that he revamped his production with “Baby Come Back” and “Tender Love.” He then made an appearance alongside Dillon Francis on a remix of Monsta, before accompanying Skrillex’s burgeoning imprint on the OWSLA Tour. Today marks his biggest accomplishment yet, as Corey Baker makes his official OWSLA debut with To a New Earth, a nine-track EP consisting of three originals and six remixes from the likes of Griz, K Theory, Candyland, Robert Delong, and Gramatik.
After treating us last week to Griz’s remix of “Slap,” OWSLA has unveiled another remix to Kill Paris’s forthcoming To a New Earth EP. Slovenia’s Gramatik has taken on To a New Earth‘s lead single, and it’s everything you would expect from a combination of his groovy glitch hop stylings with Kill Paris’s soulful bass. Gramatik layers on riff after riff of clean guitar lines, supplementing what we can only assume to be Kill Paris’s jazzy melodies and punchy kicks. The result is an intriguing mix of jam band, glitch hop, and dubstep, coming together seamlessly in an amalgam of blissful bass music. Stay tuned for the full release of To a New Earth on February 26th.Posted by
