[BNB 040] Para - It's The Hornet
Para is the South West's answer to Cut Chemist!! His 2nd 7" on Breakin Bread is a storming piece of dancefloor action backed with an infectious summertime foot shuffler.
Side A "It's The Hornet"
The A-side here is a hard edged dancefloor midtempo monster, full of hooks and some dope cuts from Para.
Side B "The Hide Away"
The B-side showcases a new softer side to Para with a summertime foot shuffler reminiscent of Quantic and Plantlife and a chorus that sticks in the mind. Festival action!
Para, a DJ and producer from Swindon, was introduced to hip-hop around 1988, having a local scene that was active in all elements of Hip Hop Para quickly learnt about the history and was instantly hooked. After experimenting with all elements he decided to focus on Djing.
Para began by making a series of Mix -tapes which he would hand out locally. These developed into a series of cut and paste mixes that took the idea of cut and paste to the next level.
One of Para's releases "The Saxton Collection" (put out in 2005) received great reviews in this country and across the pond and even earned the tag of "mix of the year" in some media. This was followed by "Feats per Minute" feat DJ Yoda, another cut and paste style mix that fuses snippets of records from many musical genres in an innovative and original style. His skills didn't go unnoticed ,one of his scratch tracks was released on "The Return of the Bomb DJ" which over the years has featured the worlds greatest Hip-Hop DJs. His love for digging breaks also led to the realms of production.
He surprised all his fans by joining the Breakin Bread roster in late 2007 to release his first production on 7". "You Never Change" turned heads worldwide with its sheer funkiness, dancefloor focus and mysteriously familiar vocal. Para is building towards an album release in 2009 with more 7"s in the pipeline and a batch of mix CD's on the way.
Para fits nicely into the Breakin Bread stable as another purveyor of quality, breakbeat tinged, funky as hell, dancefloor music.
