B. Bravo - Paradise Remixed
Bastard Jazz Records
Vinyl LP pressing. 2017 EP release. After releasing his debut album Paradise earlier this year to much critical acclaim, B. Bravo has swung back around for yet another trip to this island of cosmic delights, tapping into some of our favorite producers and extended fam for a special release to accompany the digital of Paradise Remixed. The A-Side kicks off with Fool's Gold producer Sammy Bananas turning the squelchy funk of "Freak It" into a filtered French and Italo inspired funky house monster, perfect for peak time on the dancefloor, while Los Angeles' XL Middleton deliver's a low slung G-Funk and boogie inspired take on the album single "I'm For Real". On the flip, UK producer SMBD (better known as Simbad) turns "Lay It On The Line" a classic '80s synth beast that's been tried and tested around European festivals all summer, while Grandfeather (aka Anton Borin) comes through with a spacey and deep downtempo funk reversioning of "Can't Keep My Hands Off You".
