Bingo Players and Bali Bandits bring the funk with “Body Rock,” and SLANDER and Spag Heddy waste no time setting “Running to You” on fire. Ray Volpe puts his own spin on Ookay‘s “In My Mind,” while Party Favor taps Naïka for the hefty “Blame.” As part of What So Not‘s Not All The Beautiful Things remix package, AC Slater‘s put his signature bass-fueled house spin on the famous “Goh.” Kill Paris has put his own laid-back twist on Alison Wonderland‘s “Easy,” and Ross From Friends thrills with a take on Thundercat‘s “Friend Zone.”

Master of clean production, funky melodies, and the keytar, Kill Paris, is back at it again. His new chill tune incorporates heavier elements to create the groovy feel of “Two Minds,” featuring Tim Moyo.

The Monstercat release flaunts a bouncy bassline sprinkled with crispy snaps that form the perfect layer behind Moyo’s gentle yet impactful voice, which carries the song effortlessly into the gritty drop full of saw bass. Kill Paris also takes his creativity to the next level in this one by pairing up with the biodata transmitter MIDI Sprout, which uses transmitted electrical impulses of plants and turns it into MIDI to provide music notes.

Kill Paris is currently working on his sophomore album, and with the out-of-the-ordinary thinking he’s been showcasing, it’s sure to be a treat.

He builds more and more with crisp claps and a strumming bassline that perfectly blend into a drop infused with his signature style, that seems to only get better with time.

With so much music in the arsenal and yet another killer remix, Kill Paris plans on releasing his Sophmore album at the end of the summer…so stay tuned.

Kill Paris took his time in debuting his first track of 2018, but the original is well worth the wait. On “Made Of Time,” the LA-based producer pulls in singers Trove and Emily Vaughn for soothing vocals over some mesmerizing chill-step. Speaking towards the track’s inspiration, Kill Paris explained:

“I really liked the idea of being “made of time” for someone. At the end of the day, time is all relative, and if you spend time with the one you love, it can seem like there’s no such thing as time.”

While it took some time for Kill Paris to bow in 2018, “Made of Time” will certainly have fans clamoring for more.

Kill Paris On His Name Change, Body Harmonious Frequencies, and Love

This post was originally published on this site

Kill Paris has had a busy year. Over a year ago in the wake of the Parisian terrorist attacks the artist made a decision to change his name to Chill Harris. While his original and now current name is an allusion to Shakespeare ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and had nothing to do with the city itself

The post Kill Paris On His Name Change, Body Harmonious Frequencies, and Love appeared first on EDM Sauce.

Chill Harris is officially reverting to Kill Paris

This post was originally published on this site

A couple weeks shy of a year have passed since the world was shocked by the horrific attacks that took place in Paris. Shortly thereafter, Colorado-based producer Corey Baker, best known as Kill Paris, published a poignant Facebook post declaring that he was officially changing his stage name so as to diminish the unfortunate — and entirely coincidental — relation that it had with the attacks. Thus, the brand he had been building for over a decade suddenly changed.

Kill Paris, he explained, is a meaningful name that has absolutely nothing to do with the city of Paris; it is a dig at the character Paris from Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet – a statement against unearned wealth and fame. However, considering the heartbreak surrounding the Paris attacks, Baker was met with verbal outlash due to his stage name’s insensitivity. He then opted to change his name to Chill Harris because he “felt it was the right thing at the time.” Longtime fans were understanding of the decision, as it was a heartfelt gesture from a genuine guy who cares about the world.

Nearly a year later, Baker took to Facebook to explain how he never fully felt like himself under the “Chill Paris” pseudonym. The seemingly permanent end to a brand that was built over 13 years, he claims, was confusing both to himself and to his fans. Thus, he has made the brave decision to revive Kill Paris as a form of self-expression.

Listen to his new record “Junkie,” featuring Nevve and Monstre, and read his statement in full below.
