Influences: Paranoid London

The acid indebted duo pick out their pivotal tracks...

Paranoid London's sound has been built on the foundations of classic house music, but it's distinguished by its off-kilter qualities, namely their love of crisp acid lines, funky grooves and gurgling bass.

But their productions are made all the more unique and recognisable by the wealth of guest vocalists, both returning and fresh, that they invite to grace their tracks. Most notably Mutado Pintado, Josh Caffe, Alan Vega and Arthur Baker have brought their strong, direct and sassy lyrics to the table over the years, but on their newest album 'PL' you'll also hear the late Bubbles Bubblesynski and A Certain Ratio's Simon Topping putting their stamp on Paranoid London's acid driven creations.

Ahead of the release of the album on their own Paranoid London Records, they divulge the artists and tracks that have been pivotal on their musical path...

Mr GU doing what he does best, making noise. Probably the most influential house record label of the 90s. Sorted the men from the boys. This record just doesn’t give up, keeps on going, adding noise, as it cracks along to its own tune. Every house record should sound like this. Most excellent.
