Para One & Tacteel “Fair Enough” EP

Giorgio Moroder, Jean Michel-Jarre, Kraftwerk, Jan Hammer and now Para one & Tacteel. These two Frenchmen have teamed up to continue this tradition of exploratory/cinematic electronic music with a touch of 2011. I was intrigued by this project when I saw
this video
of the two gentlemen a few months ago in the studio twisting knobs and noodling on synth keys. It is always refreshing to see electronic musicians using analog hardware rather than starring at a laptop screen. I assume that hardware jam session gave birth to this “Fair Enough” EP which is out now on Fools Gold Records. It is a collection of 5 songs that exist in our forever expanding post-genre world. You may listen to these tracks on an iPod/Mac Laptop Speakers, on a proper soundsystem and you may choose to dance or ponder life – the choice is in your hands.

Asian Dan Q&A: Nick Catchdubs

1. Who is Nick Catchdubs and what is that you do? Why do you do what you do?

I guess the simple answer is that I am a DJ, musician and record label co-owner. I have worn a lot of other hats (designer, editor, writer) but not so much these days because I devote all my free time to the label and my own music. I have been DJing professionally for the past 7 years and have been running Fool’s Gold with A-Trak for almost 3 of those. As far as WHY I do what I do… I’ve just been obsessed with music and art and media and pop culture ever since I was a very little kid, this didn’t happen by accident. I would still be making my own stuff and thinking about different ways to put it out into the world it even if it wasn’t a “career,” you know?

2. You are co-pilot of the famed Fool’s Gold Records, how has the trip been so far since you guys took off? What is Fool’s Gold Recs main mission?

It’s been fun and satisfying to launch artists’ careers, and help our friends’ music make an impact in the world at large. The mission has always been the same: to share the world that we are a part of creatively – the people around us, our friends and peers, new talents we discover – with official releases that could really stand the test of time. To put out records that could transcend blogs (no offense) and individual scenes and genres, to build up the brand so that it really stands for something unique and high quality. If I humbly say so myself…
