Jean-Baptiste de Laubier, the French producer bka Para One, who first came to our attention producing for the French rappers TTC nearly a decade ago, has teamed again with the group's lovable pioneer of "big man swag," Teki Latex, for the life-giving sun drop that is "Lean On Me." God, what a happy song. And a happy video as well, directed by de Laubier, slow-motioning through a perfect day in the life of two cherry-blossom loving Tokyo couples. The "Lean On Me" single, out now, features remixes from across the globe, with Salva from LA, Berlin's Hrdvsion and the UK's Max Tundra. His excellent new album, Passion, comes out in June via Marble and Because.
