Hear Para One’s Party-Strutting Remix of Laura Welsh’s “Break the Fall”

Premiere: Stroll into the party like your name is El Nino to Para One’s excellent flip of Laura Welsh’s “Break the Fall.”

August 13, 2014


Laura Welsh's original "Break the Fall," embedded below, is a lush hit that, to my ears, sounds a bit like a modern-day, brooding-R&B take on Kelly Clarkson's "Miss Independent." (You'll see what I mean.) The London singer, who popped onto our radar early last year with a Dev Hynes-produced heartbreaker, released her self-titled EP last month on iTunes, and here follows up its lead track with a remix by that Parisian, perennial FADER fave Para One. Love his version—feels like stepping into a crowded party and everyone moonwalking out of your way. If you're in the UK, cop the single this week.
