Twist Online : First of all tell us about the start of your music career?
DoriAn ParaNo : When I was young, rave party in France was at his golden age. Many sound-systems were making party and I was fascinated by this movement. I first join a DJ crew and start playing in free party around 2005. The crowd was mad and music run like 12 hours non stop. It was really crazy and I knew this time that I was made for this game.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
DoriAn ParaNo : Music knows fast evolution and I’ve always been inspired by different styles from Rock’n’Roll to electronic music. Those who made it perfectly were Daft Punk on their 1st Album « Homework » and I think it gives me a way to produce my own music. Then some bands like Bloody beetroots, Prodigy or even Benny Benassi inspired me a lot to create my own style.
Twist Online : You released your first Album “Blood Party” few months back. How was the response to the Album?
DoriAn ParaNo : Yeah i had very good feedback from « Blood Party » even from the public than from the professionals. I put inside all my inspirations from 10 years and gives a opus of 10 tracks mixing Techno, dubstep and deep house with some featuring like Noisebuilder from Heretik sound-system or even Adam Polo from Formule Records. Many people told me about the diversity in the album and that’s a good point because they really have a trip sometimes strong and sometimes soft while listening. In fact i try to make music without frontiers and everyone can find his way inside
Twist Online : You have recently released your EP titled “In the Club”. Tell us about that?
DoriAn ParaNo : Yes i wanted to do something more « mainstage » with adding vocals in my music. So i decided to work with the Berliner Little Voice. Collaboration was really cool and fast. She gave the perfect tone to her lyrics in quite the 1st shot. Than « In the Club » was born. Then Formule Records purpose me to signed the track and it reach top 100 Beatport in Future house last week, was really cool for us.
Twist Online : You also launched the video featuring the Berliner “Little Voice” . What’s the inspiration behind this?
