Review: After their debut last year for Beats In Space, French electro-pop duo Paradis are back with a new EP on Tim Sweeney's label. It's a sensitive kind of disco they ply their trade in, calling to mind the fragile voice and heart-warming charm of Erlend Oye and The Whitest Boy Alive. "Hemisphre" is especially soothing, and yet not afraid to be a little funky with a crafty break at the end of every eight bars. "Je M'en Nuit" instead has a quirky swing to it, and given the title the atmosphere is more logically aimed towards the night time rather than the gentle Sunday morning climes of the first track. Highly recommended.

Review: Paradis are a Parisian duo endowed with the honour of the first release on Tim Sweeney's Beats In Space label. Supposedly admirers of the weekly show from afar, some covert demo sending with the intention of getting airplay was the impulse for Sweeney to finally itch that record label scratch. Lead track "Parfait Tirage" oozes Gallic charm - dubby treatment of vocal cooing laying the foundation for a gently nudging beat embellished with gentle synthesizer sweeps and warm analogue modulations, topped off with distinct dream like vocals. It's complemented by a lovely melodic techno revision of 80s French pop hit "La Ballade de Jim" which is already a staple of Sweeney's DJ sets. This is an all round classy affair.
