Tim Paris Architexture
- Words: Philip Sherburne
- Label: Virgo
"One Man's Monument Is Another Man's Grave from French" remix talent Tim Paris, throbs with a fat breakbeat, standup bass, new wave handclaps and vocals from rapper Mike Ladd. Is it hip-house? Techno? Breaks? All of these and none, but it doesn't matter as it's a rollicking, two-steps-forward-one-step-back track that enlivens floors and enlightens minds. Ladd shouts out the Washington Monument as the world's biggest phallus while Paris dresses up Detroit keys in Christmas lights and lets an acid b-line eat away at the myth from inside. Fiendish.
