DJ Center and Sly5thAve share a love of two key things. The first is the percussive-heavy "samba-jazz" of Brazil, characterized by artists such as Jorge Ben, Milton Banana Trio and Arthur Verocai, among the plethora of possible examples I could provide. The second is the timeless, transcendental songs of Queen Sade Adu. This shared love comes across swimmingly in this cosmic dance floor soul session of a 7". Presented here is a sweet cover of the Sade classic "Paradise" replete with killer keys by Sly5thAve, production by DJ Center, and mixing by Quantic. Lest we forget the astounding vocals by Thalmia De Freitas which both live up to and pays homage to the classic Sade original, making you long for a place that could only be found in paradise. It's a thumping tropical rhythm that'll have the dance floor vibing hard. Heads will turn. The flip side features the blissed-out instrumental track. Original artwork is blessed by the amazing Indie 184 and put out by Push The Fader. Recommended, this won't last long.
