DELUXE EDITION SPECS: Contains the original 4-disc album "Paris, Do You Speak French?" with each disc packaged individually, with glorious full colour artwork featuring Ms. Hilton.  Also includes 2 data DVDr's: one is Paris' massive 90-some minute DJ set from Ibiza, the second is a full length psychedelic noise rework of said set entitled "Hearts Over Ibiza."  Both are packaged individually with their own artwork as well.  The entire set is housed in a hot pink box with paste-on artwork.  A very limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies.  It's really one of the most beautiful things I've created for Altar Of Waste, and i am very proud of it.  As of now (3/10/14) I only have ONE available for sale-the rest were reserved in pre-order.  If more become available, i will add them to the shop.  If you are interested in this, don't sleep on it!  $60 ppd. in the United States, $73 rest of world.  No trades on this one, sorry.

"Paris, Do You Speak French?" is my massive engulfing rework of Ms. Hilton's sublime 2013 "comeback" single "Good Time," a song that has grown on me over many, many repeated listenings despite its utter vapidity and inanity-just listen to Lil' Wayne's verse and you'll see what I mean.  In some ways the song is absolutely amazing because it gives the listening public en masse exactly what it demands, but for whatever reason, the single sort of flopped, leaving Paris exactly where she was before-indifferent amidst piles of cash, drugs, and torrid demeaning sex with celebrities.  For me, for reasons that are increasingly difficult to explain to people, I find Paris' musical output to be of significant cultural importance.  This release is my attempt to expand on that idea, as well as to explore new avenues of harsh and beautiful sounds-HNW, ambient, blurgaze, my washed-out remixes, and cold stagnant drones are all well-represented here.  I am still a little amazed at the amount of material i was able to create out of a 3 minute track.
