10 Atomika (Mimetic Mix)
Paradoxx were a dark-electro, synth-pop act, active in the early 2000s.
Created by composer/song writer Ralph Dix and Produced by Vince Gizzardo (Cesium 137) and Australias Rob Agostini (Soundbaker Studios), Atomika captures the vibe of new-electro synthpop and the melancholy of darkwave. These flavors with distinctive pop-sensible hooks have given Paradoxx a much broader influence on today’s subpop market. Rob’s love of pop music is evident in his tailored tracks, both Euro-style and U.S. underground influences are evident.
Lead singer Lissa and vocalist Phoenix is the focus of Paradoxx live. They emanate sophistication and pop appeal. With Lissa’s mesmerizing delivery of thoughtful, poetic lyrics and the raven-haired mysterious Phoenix voice tones that are childlike, yet mature, dark, yet brilliant and heartwarming, yet haunting. Guitarist Kriss is one of those underrated guitar wizards who catches listeners’ attention with his a varied palette of sounds. With his lush blend of crunchy rock tones and dark and evocative washes of sound, with his sight always set on the all-important melodic content of each song. Keyboardist Ralph delivers up the dreamy synthpop with catchy loops and synth stabs setting a nice backdrop for Lissa’s vocal style. Ralph brings a love of synth pioneers like Gary Numan, Human League, Kraftwerk and Trent Reznor to the mix.
