Montreal-based songstress Claire Ridgely is no small name in the industry. She has previously worked with major artists such as Robotaki, Said The Sky and Pat Lok.

While Prince Paris hails from Montreal, Canada, he is currently based in Athens, Greece. Born under the name of Paris Fotis, the artist’s pseudonym was inspired by the Prince Paris of Troy in the ancient Greek epic poem, The Iliad. Aside from Greek poetry, the producer finds inspiration in Daft Punk, all pioneers of dance music, Axwell and Coldplay. His own sound calls to mind the likes of Klingande, Bakermat and Robin Schulz.
A “summery” anthem that calls to mind bikinis, poolside bars and melting, sticky cocktails ‘Ordinary Fools ft. Claire Ridgely’ makes all thoughts of social distancing a thing of the past as it urges its listeners onto the dancefloor. Prince Paris infuses all of the recklessly positive aspects of vocal house into one, ever so sweet single that will call to the romantics at heart.
The international producer tells us a bit more about the single: “‘Ordinary Fools’ is a song about taking risks with a lover and the feelings of those moments captured by the wordplay. We tried to capture something easy and simple….a vibe. I would say we really wanted to vocal to be a dominant element in the track so we tried to make the chords/bassline a lot less busy.”
