So, French electro producer Para One got Cam’ron on a track - already amazing, with Cam meeting the outside-his-usual-territory beat with some of his best rapping in a while and a bit where he makes it clear that he likes this girl so much he’s going to follow her on Instagram AND Cinegram. Plus I just love hearing him say “Hey Para One, what’s up homie?”.
Every Little Thing* also features a bizarre but great comic-tragic hook from Teki Latex wherein he earnestly explains “I didn’t want to come across as a lonely man when I told you that I loved you on our first date” and a weightless high up soul verse from Irfane. All of which is ace, but it moves up a level on this remix from Girl Unit, which sets the whole thing to steady, thudding beat and fills it out with wide, wet synths leaving the end result sounding like what would happen if there was a big, chart-bothering R&B song on the Drive soundtrack.
Something to play real loud when pretending that the party in your student flat is actually at a huge house with an infinity pool overlooking either the sprawl of LA or the expanse of southern France’s countryside. Either way, there are pink drinks in tiny glasses.
[*Not to be confused with the all time great Juan Maclean track of the same name. Is this “liquid funk”? I don’t know what “liquid funk” is. From the “Every Little Thing” remix EP, out March 25th. Clearly I need to listen to the last few Para One records, I thought he sounded like SebastiAn for some reason.]
