Sly5thAve & DJ Center
paradise (feat. thalma de freitas)
Repressed… Most wanted Sade remake tribute first appeared in 2018 (was always expensive) Sly & Center came together for a future soul session fuelled with cosmic keys, driving synth bass, sweet guitar licks and a samba backbeat to match.
The lush vocals on the tune were voiced by Rio de Janeiro's own, Thalma de Freitas, who styled on this version of "Paradise" in both English and Portuguese, culminating in a smoky samba jazz scat.
The duo then took the session to Selva Recording to be mixed to perfection by Will "Quantic" Holland.
