Rising talent, Paris Green, delivers with debut album, ‘Fear’ on Needwant Records; a label pioneering the sounds of tomorrow and developing exciting artists in the world of crossover dance and electronic music including Lau.ra, Kiwi, and Ejeca. Never confining to one style or sound, the Amsterdam-based artist weaves in and out of progressive house, Electronica, and melodic techno, yet does so effortlessly, maintaining an atmospheric flair throughout the album’s eight tracks.

‘Angels’ kickstarts the LP with grainy textures and distant ethereal vocals that blend together to create a spacious sound. A whirring Floating Points-esque bassline forms the backbone of the track, harmonising with David Stolk’s blissful mid-point vocals, bringing all of the track’s elements together. ‘With You’ similarly uses vocals to create an atmosphere; one that nods to the likes of Moderat and Burial.

Leading single, ‘Redrum’ embodies the collective ensemble of ‘Fear’; sensorial sounds rich with injections of grainy textures and vocals, subtly merging into the track’s instrumentation progressively. Following on from ‘Redrum’, the appropriately titled ‘DayDream’ is beautifully introspective with ethereal vocals and arpeggiating pianos gently building up to the track’s breakbeat drum pattern. Brilliantly produced, and blissful throughout.

Breakbeat rhythms continue in ‘Maya’ which boasts glitchy vocals and rich synths which glide beneath the chattering drum patterns. Similarly, ‘Freedom’s rolling bassline hums throughout the track’s duration, yet the ethereal aesthetic of ‘Maya’ is swapped out for warm melody and soulful vocals, teeing up the joyful drop. ‘Four Five’ is one of the album’s more dancefloor centric tracks with percussion and stabs much like Four Tet whilst topped by gospel vocal samples a la Green Velvet’s ‘Preacher Man’.

Closing the album in impressive fashion is ‘Outworld’, another euphoric breakbeat dreamer with a tempo which heads into Jungle territory yet retaining an IDM identity. Through brilliant production, ethereal vocals, rich melodies, and inspiring instrumentation, ‘Fear’ effortlessly swallows you up and spits you out into an otherworldly landscape. Impressive throughout, Paris Green’s debut album is the work of a brilliant artist without fear or boundaries.//
