PARRALOX featuring MARCELLA DETROIT, “Paradise” (Eric Kupper remix)
Sometimes you can’t just let go of a great song with a fantastic vocal. Such is the case with Parralox’s “Paradise”, originally a mid-tempo pop/dance track for the Aussie production project featuring the fabulous Marcella Detroit, who most of you know as one half of 90’s duo Shakespear’s Sister (1992’s “Stay”) but has an otherwise storied pop music career. The song arrived on Parralox’s 2017 album Subculture, but John von Ahlen is wise to make the song into much, much more, this time through release on Energise Recordings. So almost two years later, we have a package of several remixes, which is led by chart-meister Eric Kupper’s chic deep house remix. “Paradise” simply sounds like it was intended to be a strutting house thumper like this, with the refrain of “the time has come to let you go” resonating much bolder this time around for dance club goers. With Eric coming off of yet another Billboard #1 remix of Ariana Grande’s “Breathin”, his remix of “Paradise” spells great things for Parralox and hopefully another opportunity to partner with Marcella on a future track. Mix this one in with Jessie Ware’s “Overtime”, another of my current favourites, and watch dance floor bliss in motion!
