Ben Duffy tells us about their collaboration, “The song was written on a Wurlitzer and guitar and built from there and I’m very pleased to have worked with Prince Paris on this track. Although there is a sense of despair and uncertainty to the lyrics, it’s completely offset against the uplifting sound of Paris’ work.”
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.

Begging for another chance never sounded so good with it’s glistening electronic chords and harmonic melodies.
Prince Paris tells us about the song: ‘“Last Chance’ is one of my favourite singles so far. The fact that I was able to collaborate with Ben and Ross from Fenech Soler to make this record is a dream. I’ve been a fan of the band for a long time, since I did a remix for them back in 2013. I feel this record is a special one because it brings together a world of liveliness that only they could bring!”
