Save Your Breath/El Coucho Potato

A 2 track funk single (7m 39s) — released November 16th 2009 on Breakin Bread
Para is the South West's answer to Cut Chemist!! Known for his underground Mix CD's, scratch tools and battle weapons, he's now taking things to the next level with his own productions. After a number of well received 7" singles he's finally got round to finishing his debut album and this is the lead single. Para does what he does best on this 7", funky beats with soul! On the A Side he steps up to bat alongside Caitlin from Slo Mo who also featured on his previous single "Rescue Me". "Save Your Breath" has a similar feel, with uptempo beats, this time with a latin feel and as before Caitlin adds the icing on top with some beautiful vocals. On the flipside Para goes into Cut n Paste Mode. Once again the beats are uptempo but a bit harder than the A side with a hip hop feel. One for the b-boys! Background: Para, a DJ and producer from Swindon, was introduced to hip-hop around 1988, having a local scene that was active in all elements of Hip Hop Para quickly learnt about the history and was instantly hooked. After experimenting with all elements he decided to focus on Djing. Para began by making a series of Mix -tapes which he would hand out locally. These developed into a series of cut and paste mixes that took the idea of cut and paste to the next level. One of Para's releases "The Saxton Collection" (put out in 2005) received great reviews in this country and across the pond and even earned the tag of "mix of the year" in some media. This was followed by "Feats per Minute" feat DJ Yoda, another cut and paste style mix that fuses snippets of records from many musical genres in an innovative and original style. His skills didn't go unnoticed ,one of his scratch tracks was released on "The Return of the Bomb DJ" which over the years has featured the worlds greatest Hip-Hop DJs. His love for digging breaks also led to the realms of production. He surprised all his fans by joining the Breakin Bread roster in late 2007 to release his first production on 7". "You Never Change" turned heads worldwide with its sheer funkiness, dancefloor focus and mysteriously familiar vocal. Para is building towards an album release in 2009 with more 7"s in the pipeline and a new mix CD, check here! Para fits nicely into the Breakin Bread stable as another purveyor of quality, breakbeat tinged, funky as hell, dancefloor music.
