Paranoid London were at the forefront of the vinyl resurgence that the music industry is witnessing now. With zero promo & no interviews or photos they they built a fanatical, cult following that ensured their records sold out before they even hit the shops & were changing hands for £100 or more on discogs.
The next step was live performance. With far reaching, broad tastes & an ethos focused on personality & giving it your all rather than bland, paint-by-numbers dance music they set about putting together one of the most exciting live acts in electronic music. Pulling in influences from gay Chicago House, Detroit Techno, New York Punk & New Wave they swiftly moved from playing the underground club scene to headlining stages at Glastonbury (Block9 & Sliver Hayes), Sonar, Dekmantel, Movement (Detroit), FYF (Los Angeles), Love Saves The Day, Warehouse Project & Pukkelpop. At the same time always remembering their underground roots by playing Opium (Vilnius), Panaorama Bar, Fabric, Breakfast Club, Trouw, & countless other clubs across the world.
Their flare for live performance has also resulted in them being invited to support some of the coolest acts on the planet: The Chemical Brothers, Soulwax, Fat White Family & Squarepusher don’t ask any old band with a couple of synthesisers & a laptop to open for them.Recently they started DJing again having both taken a break for more than 10 years. Very quickly they were asked to do an Essential Mix (Radio One), a Back2Back with B-Traits (Radio one) & a guest mix for The Blessed Madonna (Radio 6). Club gigs are given a unique twist by ensuring that everything they play has been re-edited & retooled into a Paranoid London flavoured bomb. During the recent lockdown they began to release some of these edits & picked up support from a wide range of heavy hitters including Ben Sims, Ben Clock, Tiga, Solomun, Death In Vegas & Hot Chip … an eclectic bunch to say the least!
Remixes have been very thin on the ground due to an attitude of quality over quantity … it doesn’t matter how much money you have, if they’re not into you you’re not getting a remix. So far the lucky recipients have been The Chemical Brothers, Arthur Baker & Alan Vega, Liquid Liquid & Working Mens Club. Three legendary acts & the hottest newcomers on the block.
With a new live show developed during the lockdown (check the Fact Magazine & Movement Detroit streams) incorporating Warmduscher vocalist Mutado Pintado, queer frontrunner Josh Caffe & visuals by Bob Jaroc (Fat Boy Slim) they aren’t fucking around.
