Still riding the hype wave from his Foreplay EP release earlier this year, Colorado-based OWSLA bass producer Kill Paris is back in action with a hot new remix of Louis Futon’s “Silk.” Kill Paris is relentless in his unique exploration of the Future Bass genre. Perhaps it’s safer to call his style “Future Funk.” I mean, he does bust out the keytar at his live shows. It really doesn’t get much funkier than that.
Regardless, it is the pulverizing bass lines that lay the groundwork for his catchy key riffs, resulting in tight, polished, and always-excellent future bass tracks. This signature sound was showcased when Foreplay dropped in April, and it was brought to light once more last week with the release of his Foreplay Remixes EP, featuring remixes of the 4 tracks on his EP produced by other artists.
Luckily for us, Kill Paris didn’t leave us hanging as far as his own music goes. His latest remix for Louis Futon shows us that he’s still got it. Coming in at a tight 3 minutes, the track wastes no time sending listeners on a funky, bass-heavy journey through space. As futuristic as it may be, it is upbeat as always. It just feels good to listen to. Seriously, just hearing the words “Kill Paris” puts a smile on my face, and this track is just another reason to feel that way. Louis Futon is already a pretty bass-heavy hip-hop duo, but Kill Paris gives their track “Silk” a funky, soulful twist that brings a new vibrant energy to the song. From the opening synth hook to the last bass drop, this is a feel-good future bass banger through-and-through.
For the uninitiated, stream the track below and download it for free on SoundCloud*. Keep your eye out for Kill Paris this Fall as he will be joining Bassnectar on his NVSB tour** (dates listed below). Also, Kill Paris is having a Reddit AMA this Thursday, 9/4 at 12pm EST. He’s also been tweeting about a new album, so fans have a lot to be excited about.
Now please excuse me as I go back to being simultaneously attacked and caressed by the silky smooth bass madness that is Kill Paris.
