For the third Whole Truth EP, the nameless producer is joined by LA vocal duo Lucid Paradise, comprised of Ishtar and E. Da Boss (the latter is best known as the deep-voiced half of Stones Throw's Myron & E). On 'Party Down' extends the direction of the Tom Noble mix of Myron & E's 'Do it Disco', bringing beautiful modern soul vocal stylings to a limber groove that could have graced West End Records in '81. The pair also duet on 'Who's Taking All The Love?', while The Whole Truth flexes his dub muscles and drops some deeply burnt chords.
This EP follows releases on The Whole Truth's self-titled label in collaboration with UK dub legend Erroll Bellot and Anglo-Mauritian producer, singer and vocalist Mo Kolours, which found favour with the likes of Optimo's JD Twitch and Mary-Anne Hobbs (BBC 6 Music).
Art comes from Lewis Heriz once again. Known for his work for the Soundway and Sofrito labels, he is becoming one of the most distinctive and respected sleeve designers around.
