A beautiful trippy downtempo electronica, courtesy of Jay Carder and her brilliant first 2022 Soho Radio show, which I happened to be a guest on.

I was just catching up with the full episode and her selection and I remember I fell in love with the track which followed up Elijah Nang's "B E B O P". The slow-groove burner is crafted by LeCiel - a dancer, singer/songwriter and producer who is currently based in Berlin. Inspired by funk, soul, gospel and soutern/west coast hip hop, LeCiel is one of the most versatile artists I've heard in a while.

"Paradise" is the closing composition to her 2021 release The Art of Practice and is nothing short than mind-blowing. A journey through genres!
