This vinyl disco/house imprint based in the District of Columbia (USA) bring in French rising star Closed Paradise to inaugurate their new Black Label series. Closed Paradise is an established and well respected producer whose vibe is centered on a solid groove and seamlessly slips between, house, deep disco, soul, lounge and boogie. With releases on labels as diverse as Kolour, Whiskey Disco and Masterworks, he's having a great run. This follows up a nice release on his eponymous imprint that displayed his knack for deeper-tinged sounds - as heard on the sultry and balmy opener "Secrets". A nod to previous disco styled edits on the soul/funk tip can be heard on "Tchin Tchin". On the flip, there's a very Kenny Dixon Jr. influenced vibe on the wicked "Swang It" and he saves the best for last on the emotive and life affirming groove of "Chief" - now that there is real proper deep stuff indeed!
