Across a smattering of releases, the Paranoid London crew have built up something of a cult following without having to rely on the usual press or promo channels. How they do that, you say? By specialising in their own distinct brand of acid house, blending dark analogue productions with live vocals from exotically named artists such as Mulato Pintado and Paris Brightledge. With last year's Paris Dub 1 currently the subject of some high prices amongst vinyl speculators, a second edition arrives in timely fashion and the combination of Paranoid London's Acid and Paris Brightledge's vocal once again works wonders. Yes this is simple, but some of the best house music is just that. Do not sleep.
