Play Paul – Tijuana (Trumpets Of Lust) review

Artist: Play Paul
Title: Tijuana (Trumpets Of Lust)
Label: Kitsune
Genre: Electro house/Electroclash
Format: Digital
Buy From: Juno Download

Having the name Paul de Homem-Christo must be a curse and a blessing. He is indeed brother of Daft Punk’s Guy de Homem-Christo, but more importantly he’s the man behind Play Paul, a tasty electro project that’s already had releases on Defected, Gigolo and now Kitsune.

Latest release “Tijuana” is a huge and storming single that’ll definitely set Paul far apart from his brother. Dark and moody, it let’s the beats and swampy bass build and take centre stage for a couple of minutes before dropping into the titular trumpet hits. These are no regular trumpets though. Like a marching band with 50 microphones pointed straight at the horns, it’s one of the biggest noises you’ll ever hear. Slowly the rest of the tune comes back in to join in the fun, holding out on the beat until the last moment. It’s great fun, with a cool palette of sounds that rarely make it into dance music.

German destroyers Acidkids take a more minimal and raved-up approach on their mix, keeping the same melody for a while before pitch-shifting it into oblivion. The Subs join in the ravey fun, peppering their mix with stacked snares as well as some brilliantly twisted stabs.
