Original Version by SADE
Produced and Arranged by SLY5THAVE + DJ CENTER
Sly5thAve & DJ Center pay tribute to the Queen, Helen Folasade Adu, on this tried and true version of Sade’s classic, Paradise.
Coming off the success of Sly’s epic orchestral interpretation of Dr. Dre’s music, The Invisible Man and Center’s Afrobeat-infused dance floor rocket, Dem Say Ah (feat. Akoya Afrobeat), the two come together for this cosmic soul session.
The lush vocals on the tune are courtesy of Rio de Janeiro’s own, Thalma de Freitas, who styles on this version of Paradise, dancing between lyrics sung in both English and Portuguese, culminating in a smokey, Samba-Jazz scat. Thalma’s melodies transport us to a magical place that we never want to leave, one that could only be found in paradise! A Paradise that Sade once described in 1988, and now one that DJ Center, Sly5thave and Thalma de Freitas revisit in 2018.
Each 7″ jacket is adorned with a print of original artwork by the amazing Indie 184.
