Just Browsing: Free stuff on Soundcloud ... Part Two: Kill Paris

Another guy putting loads of free stuff out there on Soundcloud is popular Beatport artist Kill Paris (aka Corey Baker), an LA-based DJ and producer.

In the studio, his remixing and wider production work has helped transform Funk classics like Patrice Rushen’s ‘Forget Me Nots’ and Prince’s ‘I Wanna Be Your Lover’ (among many others of the same ilk) into works of modern musical art. He’s not been shy about applying his own slightly twisted take to more recent works either – his polishing up of Lana Del Rey’s ‘Without You’ being one recent case in point … even if I’m not quite so keen on that one personally.

Kill Paris has also nurtured a strong following as a live/touring DJ, having supported the high profile likes of Benny Benassi, while regularly touring across North America in his own right. It’s very difficult to pin a label on Kill Paris; some electro, techno, straight up disco, all with something of a dubstep bent.

Have a listen and decide for yourself
