PARADISE ULTD.

SOMETHING TROPICAL.

Few producer/djs on the international indie dance scene opitimize the tropical lifestyle as well as JEFFREY PARADISE from the legendary Los Angeles duo POOLSIDE. A standout favorite at summer festivals and daytime rooftops events, Jeffrey has been championing the slo motion disco sound for more years than we can remember and if his latest solo offerings are any indication of what’s in store for us in 2017 we are in for quite a treat. ‘Cruise Control’ clocks in at a blistering 80 beats per minute cruising along with a meandering live bassline, blissed out synthesizers and guitar providing the ultimate soundtrack for a drive down the pacific coast in an open air automobile.. Mezcal optional.

As summer sets on the west coast in Los Angeles, I’ve found myself on a foreign beach chasing the endless summer in Sydney, Australia. This mix was created daydreaming in the sun soaked white sand with turquoise waves crashing on the horizon. A slow motion summer soundtrack of classics from the near & distant past touched by some of my favorite modern edit wizards to be enjoyed with chilled beverage of choice in hand.

Adam Santucci aka Air Zaïre best know for his breakout single ‘Sanibel’ ft. Patrick Baker from the heyday of tropical nu-disco has re-emerged onto the international scene with a fresh collection of new productions and edits. His latest remix of Frank Ocean’s second single ‘Ivy’ takes the original’s indie tinged guitars and prince-esque vocals on a tropical journey with proper lush synths, deep bass, playful marimba melodies and a driving re-drum earning it’s way into the coveted ‘must play’ crate for any pool party this year.

As temperatures rise along the coast, Melbourne based songstress Jane Elizabeth Hanley, internationally known as KIDS AT MIDNIGHT has emerged from her bedroom studio with an emotionally charged new single soaked in reveries of past love. The track features a whirlwind of Hanley’s main and backing vocals channelling the power of 1980’s pop paired with reserved but playful percussion and guitar that has come to define her signature live electronic sound showcased in her Triple J Unearthed breakout hit ‘Survive’ which received massive support from KLP among many other presenters.

This latest batch of selections for ParadiseULTD.com became really unwieldy. At over two hours long, so many tracks got shelved, and left off the mix before the set had to be wrapped up at that 120 minute mark.

Why? There’s too much music out there! And musically it’s a funny time. Half of the selections reflect summer feelings that we were still catching as we started making selections starting in late August, while others certainly bring the fall chill. First, I offer that almost every month, three New York City based record labels dominate our choices – that being Razor N Tape, Bastard Jazz, and Soul Clap Records (and their sister labels, Crew Love Records, and Wolf + Lamb). So these three will always make the cut with plenty of selections …
