Para One - Every Little Thing

Why do we like this?

Who knows better about passion than the French? At least that's what the movies tell me. Romance originated there, right? It makes sense, then, that Frenchman Jean-Baptiste e Laubier, aka Para One, has carved out every little thing that fills him with love and titled the multifaceted work, Passion.

Laubier's beginnings were that of the hip-hop persuasion, a prerequisite to his later advancement into dance. His unique path produced something of an over-animated method to beat-making; he's armed with the know-how to make everything sound terribly hip. Whether he is chaos in a package or completely organized radical behavior, this Frenchman takes a ballsy, no-holds-barred approach. Among his many hats, Para One is deep house, soul, random bursts of IDM, R&B, and a penchant for boogie. Whatever it is, Passion will keep you listening.

"Every Little Thing" and "Lean On Me" are the two most up-tempo tunes on the album, and probably my favorites (though with an album of this nature, favorites are hard to choose). Para One explores so many realms it's like a history lesson -- undoubtedly a recipe for a classic.

It's an amazing piece of work and I strongly suggest listening to the whole thing to get the full scope!
