Joakim has remixed 'Paradiso' by Charlotte Gainsbourg in tribute to Larry Levan. Essentially Joakim has taken the harshness out of the original, smoothed it over and added at least 3 or 4 different layers of sensual twists and turns, which steadily evolve over the course of the track. Pretty hard not to love this, right? [read more]
