Lord Paramour is the unique meeting of two activists from the Rennes (France) scene. On the one hand, DJ Marrrtin, graffiti artist, beatmaker and leader of the prolific label Stereophonk, is known as much for his instrumentals played during many international breakdance battles, than for his acclaimed collaborations with Atom from C2C, Robin McKelle or the Nubians. Other member Ajax Tow has recently delivered a second album, influenced by abstract hip-hop and indie-rock. He's known as the "White Wolf" of the Rennes indie scene, with his lush hair and baroque mixes spread throughout the four corners of the hexagon. The duo here has constructed an album around their obvious fondness for Bollywoood, each bringing his own eclectic inspirations. There are also influences here from hip-hop, soul, disco, indie-rock, downtempo, electro, Krautrock and more. The whole is never the sum of its parts and the result is a masala of beats and grooves. This is an elegant and sloppy music, a joyous, bright and colorful uproar -- the psychedelic soundtrack of a spicy and adventurous life.
