The idea of humanising the machine is a relationship that has forever run down the spine of electronic music. From the restrained sexuality of Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder through to the tectonic soul sampling grooves out of Detroit, Paume now makes up the next wave of musicians integrating themselves closer with the machine than ever before. On the verge of releasing his debut 12" on Melodic Records, the 'Transalpine' E.P is an exercise in organic pulses and euphoric intensity yet keeping one hand immersed in the dials and valves of the machine. Currently residing in Paris, Hugo Billionet aka Paume, is only 24 years old, making music for a mere 3 years. Kicking off with 'Transalpine' this ethos is stark; a propellent 4/4 dance-floor track wrapped around a warm pads, heavy kick drums and a soaring after hours vocal loop. It's electronic music that lives in the veins, buries it's head deep in your stomach and comes punching out through the gut. 'Follies' follows on; an eerie monologue of synthetic chimes, vocal trails and deep cosmic beats forming an intergalactic, otherworldly mystery that wraps the listener in a tapestry of sonic curiosities. 'Juno Beach' morphs out the haze, a revolving interplay of synths and wavy bass licks, coupled with a haunting melodic tickle that can't help but pull on the heart-stings.
