Keeping in tone with our previous review and the ongoing tropical torment we've been heroically enduring for what seems like an eternity, we present you with the latest Kolour LTD release. I've been in love with the KLTD series ever since their first release signed by Eddie C came out in 2010. Since then, the back catalogue gathered a string of excellent releases by Alex Agore, Fantastic Man, Norm De Plume, 6th Borough Project, The Noodleman and many, many more, culminating with a solid midsummer house celebration by our personal favourite Ugly Drums and his buddy Chesney earlier this month.
To celebrate their 20th release in history, Kolour LTD invited the newest and freshest name on the slo-mo disco house scene at the moment: Closed Paradise. Mathieu Clé is a south frenchman from Palavas Beach who first dipped his toes in the scene in early 2013 with a featuring on More Drama and has since been under our radar, putting out release after release on notorious smooth house and modern disco labels such as Long Weekend, Above Machine, Fools & Fables, Young Adults and Whiskey Disco.
For 'The Distance Between', Mathieu prepared 3 original beach-surfing cocktail-shakers filled with the mellowest grooves and the deepest moves, able to melt the sun itself. From the smooth chords and dreamy chants of the highly atmospheric 'Planets' which gets a much deserved soul-stretch treatment by sunbaked duo Brame & Hamo, to the rolling bass-heavy sand-blasting affair that is 'Tunnels' and all the way to the twirls and twists of the woozy doozy 'Moelleuz' born out of the collaboration with Journey Reverse, Closed Paradise proves once again that his latest releases on Whiskey Disco and Young Adults were not coincidental at all and that his place amongst the hottest producers to keep an ear out is very well deserved.
Out on the 17th of August, but better start those pre-orders now, this one's going to sell out like a case of Corona on hot Ibiza noon :D
