Para One & Tacteel’s Fair Enough EP is one of the hidden jewels of the Fool’s Gold catalog, five tracks of uncategorizably awesome electronic bop from two of Paris’ finest. The duo have decided to immortalize the tunes on vinyl for the very first time, along with a collection of their remixes for other artists and a DVD of the tracks performed live in concert at la Gaité Lyrique. Head over to paraoneandtacteel.com to order a copy while they last.
Could it be? The grand return of le duo dynamique?
Fool’s Gold is proud to present the Fair Enough EP from Para One and Tacteel, their first new release in years. It’s not the housed-up Marble madness or club firepower that their remixes or respective back catalogs might lead you to expect. Rather, Fair Enough features five tracks of pure electronic experimentation: midtempo disco (“A1,” “Rome,” “Touch!”), freaked-out mood music (“Tin Drum”), even some straight-up handclapping synthpop (“Always”).
Don’t strain your brain attempting to figure out where to file this one, just kick back and enjoy the sound of two longtime collaborators (reunited and it feels so good!) armed with a whole gang of keyboards and enough faith in each other to try anything. Grab it now on Beatport.
Electronic funk is alive and well…in Paris. Vibe out to this video of Para One and Tacteel performing with their small army of synthesizers and drum machines at La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris. And consider it a teaser of some very special music on its way to you soon…
