Today sees the release of “Musique Sans Paroles”, Pierre Rousseau’s, better known as one half of Parisian duo Paradis, debut solo offering on Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space label. Breezing between earnest orchestration and radiant dance tracks, the six-track record represents a return to Rousseau’s creative fountainhead; the influences, the instruments, and the city at the doorway of the artist’s origin story reopened. “Musique Sans Paroles” marks the first of three releases on the way from Pierre Rousseau in 2020.

Director Joseph Bird collaborated with Rousseau on six “photographs with a pulse,” a series of visual stills with subtle emotional motives, for each of the songs on “Musique Sans Paroles”. We’ve already featured Paris, and now you can watch the video for the record’s opening title track, which features a short vocal recording by Mana Haraguchi introducing the record, and field recordings from the streets of Paris and Tokyo.

“Musique Sans Paroles” is out now via Beats In Space Records. Buy it here.

Pierre Rousseau, better known as one half of Parisian duo Paradis, lands on Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space label with his debut solo offering, a six-track EP entitlted “Musique Sans Paroles”.

French house maestro Lifelike takes us on a ride back to the ’80s with this synth-laden new remix of “Toi Et Moi”, the brilliant single from Parisian electro-pop duo Paradis. This remix is another perfect example of Lifelike’s trademark style. The track “Toi Et Moi” will appear on the duo’s upcoming debut album “Recto Verso”, which will drop in September.

In their own words: “Laurent Heinrich, aka Lifelike, has always felt like a pretty underrated producer to us, a true signature in the art of remixing, consistently delivering a distinctly French approach to dance music, fuelled by Italo-disco and ’80s synth-pop; Obviously, we were very curious about what he could come up with for ‘Toi Et Moi’. This one definitely brings up teenage emotions for us.”

Lifelike’s remix of “Toi Et Moi” is out now digitally via Barclay. Get it here.
