A true renaissance. The only way to describe Wayne Paul’s return. Lost in alcohol and drugs, drifting from incarceration bids to detox clinics, the British artist has been to hell and back. Fortunately he IS back. Back with a new health, more inspiration than ever and a beautiful album entitled « Between The Lines ». The voice that took label Big Dada to new heights in the 90s is intact. Floating. Subtle. Intense.
Wayne Paul, British by way of Jamaica, grew up fascinated by Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown, John Holt, Marvin Gaye, Motown, or the movement linked to the mysterious Jah Shaka – prince of heavy bass, sirens and echo effects. It’s no wonder he’s so comfortable expressing his feelings over dub, electro, jazz and hiphop created by Swiss master Christophe Calpini (Mobile in Motion, Stade, Alain Bashung, Dog Almond). It’s bouncy, it’s colorful, it’s warm.
