Parov Stelar – The Flame of Fame

Just when i thought i’d heard it all, Parov Stelar knocks me off my feet with this, his 2008 release “The Flame of Fame”. And what a treat it is, Stelar musical and cognitive genious is expounded with four tracks full of electronic beats that are made for the dancefloors mixed with a deadly concoction of 30’s swing/jazz samples and vocal dubs that are irresistably danceable.

I’d have to say this EP is even better than the one i just posted, purely because of it’s infectious grooves. The title track is the classic Stelar mix of swing and beats, while Fleur De Lille is the most astounding effort on the disc – presenting the lsitneer with a blend of jazz and Daft Punk-style electronic bliss. The EP closes with Matilda – a real rocking number, complete with solid piano throughout, thick bass, a tripped out guitar line and awesome sampled vocals.

Treat Yourself to this wonder.
