Release Notes from All Ears

Mathieu Cle AKA CLOSED PARADISE has made a remarkable impact with only a couple of releases under his belt
Last year's superb release on All Ears' label Fools & Fables really stood apart from contemporaries with it's nimble melodic and atmospheric take on modern mid-tempo club music. 'Get Your Bearings' has quite rightly become an anthem for loyal Balearians the world over.

Above Machine have become champions of this sound from the off too, setting the bar incredibly high with a stunning catalogue of releases.

For this EP, Closed Paradise builds on those themes perfectly, a duo of dream-state dancers, rich in uplifting and warm musicality

Label masters The Project Club take the first of two remixes on the flip, replacing the musical motifs with live instrumentation and sailing off to a deserted island destination in the process.

Label mate at Fools & Fables and one of the most promising new faces Maricopa takes on A Side cut 'Horizon'. His sharp and stripped back take offers a more strikingly electronic version, which still manages to exude blissed-out brilliance on this seriously top quality EP.
