Nick Warren - Global Underground: 030 - Paris
Having traversed the world over the last few years, including a previous six destinations for the Global Underground series, Nick Warren returns in February 2007 with his latest excursion, his seventh for the label and the 30th in it´s long running series, touching down in Paris for a 2-disc set based on his set at the Mix Club in Paris back in mid-October this year. Once again, Nick shows his love of downtempo on the first disc, whilst the second is a more uptempo club disc in a similar vein to his last Global Underground album ´Shanghai´. The first of several Global Underground albums planned for 2007, ´GU030: Paris´ is a landmark for the label that only it´s longest serving DJ could celebrate, and this latest album will no doubt be well received by Nick Warren and Global Underground fans alike.
Global Underground has reached it´s milestone 30th album, as Nick Warren will release ´Paris´, his seventh mix CD in the popular Global Underground mix series in February.
"Paris is just a stylish city. It´s beautiful. I´ve always gone for the cities that aren´t really known as clubland capitals. Paris is the same really. It gives it a bit more of an edge and it means I really have to work at it." - Nick Warren
A new Parisian club generation has emerged - young, brash, and set on the more minimal, smoothly-mixed dance sound of today. This has split the city´s nightlife community, with some veteran clubbers opting out, and others welcoming the newcomers. At club Mix, Warren´s new generation of fans are out in force. In downbeat denim glamour, with 80s-style ties hanging bandana-style round their necks and sunglasses a go-go, they preen and gurn through Nick´s immaculate sets. They´re out for a good time - and Nick delivers it, seamlessly, while his name repeatedly flashes up on the face of the illuminated DJ booth. This latest Global Underground album is inspired by the late-October 2006 DJ set he performed at Mix.
The first CD of Nick´s silky smooth Paris mix is in no hurry to go anywhere. This downbeat CD contains an atmospheric, colorfully melodic set - the kind of material Warren handles better than anyone: dreamy, pretty, understated, cool.
The second CD is the soundtrack to a chic, happening party where nobody´s giving anything away but everyone is dancing wildly. It´s one of Nick Warren´s finest: detailed, ruthlessly contemporary, effortlessly groovy - a soundtrack for a fresh new breed of clubbers, partying in a minimalist white and lavender club under a car park in Paris.
