Happy 2022! Our first release this year is 'Luxury Soul 2022' available now. We also have a new digital single release by Patrick McLean & Deborah Bell. We are also now on Bandcamp at https://expansionrecords.bandcamp.com/
Singer, songwriter, musician and producer Patrick McLean, formerly of the classic Brit Funk entity ‘Hi Tension’, has a new single. It is a collaboration with acclaimed London singer Deborah Bell. The song centers around being positive in a relationship with the focus on where you are going. Don’t dwell not any obstacles or challenges, think about the love and security you give each other through all times. Patrick McLean is currently a member of The Brit Funk Association and more recently released a solo album “One Heart, One Beat”. Deborah Bell has previously worked with Georgie B’s ‘Groove Association’ alongside other former members of another classic Brit Funk group, Second Image.
The Paradise Projex is the brainchild of Phil Edwards, inspired by Earth Wind & Fire as a teenager. He formed the original 80s group Paradise and is now back with former group members and new acquisitions for a new entity. It's a vinyl only EP, limited edition, all numbered.
This astonishing take on the classic Isley Brothers song from 1980 comes with music by Chaka Khan's touring band plus co-lead vocals by Audrey Wheeler and Brent Carter. Online release 8th April. A limited edition 7" single follows thereafter, currently available to pre-order from Juno, Simply Soul and Soul Brother
