Amsterdam duo Paris Green, the unlikely partnership of DJ & producer Mitchel Kelly and jazz musician Thijs Bastiaans, make big impressions for their debut release on Crosstown sister label Rebellion with Poker Flat boss Steve Bug in for remix duty.
The deep and brooding You Got To Try, discovered by Kölsch in his BBC Radio 1 Residency, was created during a jamming session with cohort David Stolk on vocals, singing about loosing sight of dreams due to other people’s expectations.
“Day in, day out we are confronted with the expectations of others while we dream of our own future. Negative incentives haunt us upon into our dreams at night.You can let others belittle you until there’s nothing left of you. Are you gonna let that happen? Or are you willing to fight for yourself?” – Paris Green
