JEFFREY PARADISE – DREAM WITH YOU [VIDEO]
Summer 2017 has been a busy time for Californian producer Jeffrey Paradise. As half of daytime disco duo Poolside with Filip Nikolic they surprised fans with their second LP ‘Heat’ in late June, followed by a remix of Miami Horror’s latest single ‘Leila’ just days later.
The new music just keeps on coming, with Jeffrey Paradise’s laidback new single ‘ Dream With You’ out now via More Danceable Records. The track features live instrumentation influenced by Caribbean and African rhythms whilst still capturing the summery vibe fans have come to know and love, with a unique vocal courtesy of West African singer Mandjou Koné. An upbeat DJ-friendly remix accompanies the original, courtesy of Afro-Latin disco producer Bosq.
Jeffrey Paradise on how he came to work with Burkina Faso native Mandjou Koné:
“I met Mandjou after attending an event at Ashkenaz performing arts center in Berkeley where she was performing with famous kora player Karamo Susso. I was wowed by the character and spirit in her voice and had to meet her and hopefully get her to record on the tracks I had been working on. Luckily she was up for it and we recorded vocals in a friend’s studio in Vallejo, California one afternoon and the rest is history.
