I can't stop listening to Maxx Klaxon's track "Italian Ice". To say this track is smoother than a pint of Guiness sat on a freshly and finely sanded wooden bar being drunk by Sean Connery would be no exaggeration. It has everything, from smooth pads to smooth chords and melody.

Indicato ai fans del sound di Adult, Fischerspooner, Freezepop, Ladytron e dei loro ispiratori come Human League e Pet Shop Boys, PARANOID STYLE uno dei progetti che al momento concentrano meglio l'attenzione sul filone electro-pop.
