She’s a little bit pop, a little bit electronic and a whole-lotta eclectic!
Meet Parisian born, LA based instigator and influencer, Nadel Paris.
How would you describe your sound?
Passion, Love and… Big Bottom –I mean the beats, lol! Outstanding DJs with an incredible sound. A song has to make you feel like jumping on your feet and dance! Like when the bass is so big and the bass drum so loud that it seems like it’s beating inside of you. I like to shock. Whisper, belt. I like catchy hooks, but I am not a slave to commercialization. I really just want to express myself in many ways.
We’ve heard that you have an eclectic show, can you tell us more?
I just love to hang out with the audience. I need the connection with people. Performing is about sending love to each and every person in the room. Genuinely. Coming from a soul to soul kind of place. And when you give love you always receive love back! I work with two dancers, and some of the performance is really tight, choreographed, planned. But at some point I let them tear the floor and I’ll walk up to everyone in the room. Sing in their face, shake their hands fist bump. If someone is a good dancer or simply a crazy one, they may find themselves on stage right next to me.
What artists from dance music would you like to collaborate with?
Oh My Gosh, do you have all day? Lol! Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Bob Sinclair, Tiesto, Carl Cox … As per singers: Rihanna, Gaga, Beyonce, Madonna… I love pop as well, and hope to cross over. Rappers: Iggy Azalea… Come back next week actually, I’ll be done with the list! But I am very happy I’ve been able to work with DJM and Christian B, Ray Rhodes, Cyphonix, Rick Cross, MoodyBoy and I probably forgot someone.
You recently had some Billboard success with your single Freedom, how will you follow up?
I have two more singles in the Cue; London Royal and Ooh La La La, which are being remixed soon! We have hopes for some more Billboard success. DJ’s opinions are very important to me. If they like your music enough that they want to spin, you are doing something right. Soon a whole album. Yay!
What is your songwriting process like?
I’ll wake up in the middle of the night and I’ll have a melody in my head, or lyrics. I record it immediately. Or, I’ll go over to DJM’s studio, and he’ll have some fresh tracks up. I’ll start singing to it. He’ll tell me exactly how he feels about it. By the time we are done with the song, there will have been a lot of back and forth. He’ll get new version after new version from me. Loves it, or sends it back. He’ll modify stuff. We almost kill each other, but we work very openly and respect each other a lot. At the end of the process, there is a melody and lyrics.
Tell us about the next single and where we can hear it.
“Freedom” remix collection is out now via iTunes and Beatport and all the usual outlets, the next single is due to be released in May and will be in DJ’s hand soon! The 2nd single will either be a track we wrote called London Royal or Ooh La La La.
