Hearing the ways in which electronic dance music keeps evolving is truly exciting.  An artist that embodies this constant evolution of sound is Kill Paris.  Corey Baker aka Kill Paris is an LA based producer signed to OWSLA Records and is pioneering his own groove driven, funky sounds into the airwaves.  He's not a prisoner to any one particular genre and has produced a plethora of songs and mixes, mostly all available for free download on his SoundCloud.  Kill Paris' music proves that it doesn't always have to be a big room banger to impress the EDM audience and he excels at producing beats that leave you mystified and satisfied.  With the recent release of his To A New Earth EP and it's wildly popular track Catch You I think it's safe to say Kill Paris is here to stay.  He's also the one responsible for Baby Come Back an intoxicatingly groovy track featured on Mat Zo's Essential Mix, which is available for free download below.  Expand your mind and check out his beats and smattering of free downloads! Enjoy! Let's take a journey through his EP shall we? Catch You has been featured on a long list of radio shows and podcasts including Arty's Together We Are.  This track initially has sort of a disco type vibe in the beginning but then shifts into something deliciously funky and catchy as hell.  The rise and fall of Catch You is sure to keep you captivated and head bobbin' for the entirety. Slap Me starts subtly but with sexy interesting beats that peak your interest and leave you wondering as to where the song is going to take you.  The melody has an almost melancholic quality halfway through the song but the beats remain rich, fatty and oh so pleasing to the ears. Punchy beats, fatty bass and funky synth flow together to create the beautiful To A New Earth. He also just released his remix of Rudimental's Feel The Love out now on Big Beat.  A completely unique interpretation of the drum and bass track now turned ultra funky with the quintessentially sexy Kill Paris sound. If you haven't heard Baby Come Back you MUST listen - featured on Mat Zo's Essential Mix! Here is one of my favorite mash ups from Kill Paris - Keep Your Secrets in Midnight City. We're all suckers for a little Lana.  Check out his dub remix of Without You. And lastly a little piano solo he did in LA ... You feeling it? Connect: Facebook // Twitter // SoundCloud
