Paradigm Shift are LEGENDARY.
Absolutely one of my favorite artists of all time, and the only ones who even come close to touching them for me are Shiloh.
Their self-titled CD with cool Japanese animation on a white background came out back in 1995, and I still love it with a passion in 2009!
That’s pretty rare when I’ve gotten rid of the majority of music from back then because it sounds so old it’s not even nostalgic for me anymore, and especially for electronic dance music which is a genre that has a much faster lifespan than other styles of music.
I’ve never really subscribed to the “expiration date” line of thinking regarding music, and if I like something I don’t care if someone else thinks it’s dated. If it still grooves for me…I enjoy it!
Still, it is pretty cool to play tracks off that CD and still have people call in or run up to me gushing about how cool they are and asking where to get them…14 years later! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy that they share my love, and assures me that I’m not like Adam Sandler in Billy Madison.

Paradigm Shift is made up of Chris Sawyer, Trent Pawley, and Coy Wright.
They resurfaced briefly on Tastyfresh in 2002 with new music! They had just remixed Antigravity by Wright & Reyes. The song was posted as a free download, and when the site hosting it disappeared, they gave me permission to put it up as a free download.
Wright & Reyes are Coy Wright (of Paradigm Shift) and Rick Reyes.
Finally, the free download:
