JP8080 Paradise

Future Sound Of Egypt
Although my vintage synth knowledge ain't all that, the ‘Paradise’ in Kandi’s ‘JP8080’ is likely courtesy of Roland. Running the melodic/euphoric arc, the track pulses with unforced energy, while boasting strong composition. Crucially, though, it has the extra ace to play. Its midsection/drop heralds an unusual, whistling Oxygène-era-like sequence. Never my favourite musical reference point, but it's rarely been done better and within the confines here, engages superbly.
