One of the highlights of Anjunadeep:06, Paramour is a stunning mix of progressive and deep house that showcases Jody Wisternoff’s mastery of different styles, and now the full version is set for a full release.
Once again, Jody’s trademark style of building little ideas and riffs to create a sonic journey is present from the off. Rather than having “the drums” mixed with “a bassline,” the various individual elements interact with each other in subtle ways–a hi-hat pattern dancing with a bass riff, a synth stab working with a snare. But while Jody’s prowess at mixing sound to create an aural gem is evident, the musical aspect of Paramour is something else. A deep house groove sits alongside some progressive house chords, before giving way to a massive break packed with lush melodies and plenty of atmosphere–a welcome surprise at the heart of the track. The net result is an emotional piece of music that is simultaneously a killer house track, a rare and welcomed combination that Jody has pulled off with style.
Paramour is out Nov. 3 on Anjunadeep.
