"Ian Jones flies under the handle of Parisian, resides in St Louis, is influenced in part by a lot of UK-bass-related music; and this global melange in a microcosm sums up the multifarious sounds as created by the burgeoning producer.
" If that's a bit too wordy, check out six tracks on Parisian's Soundcloud page
, and his complete catalog (more or less) below the break.
Born in in St. Louis, and still "stuck" there, Jones is influenced by artists from Paris
, thus the handle. He first dropped a free 7-track EP titled These Emotions Run High
in 2012 via his diamondvariations
tumblr account, with an official video for the track Parasite
. He then got connected with Push & Run Records
in England, who handed out another freebie by the way of a collection of four blissed out bootleg tracks on Tings in Boots
, streaming on Soundcloud and downloadable from Sendspace.
Earlier in 2013, Push & Run released Parisian's EP, Daul Kim
(Bandcamp), inspired by
of the young South Korean fashion model by the same name
, possibly in part for her "admissions of depression, insomnia, loneliness, fatigue
There's one last freebie: a split single from former St. Louis artist (now a Brooklyite) Phaseone. Parisian's It's Not Forever
is a free download from Pitchfork, and Phaseone's Sean
is free from XLR8R, or you can stream and purchase it on Bandcamp
