Lady Paradox and Gadget have actually talked about working together since 2008, when they found a mutual respect for each other’s craft and work ethic over the years. Like many collaborators, it was a case of trying to mutually find the perfect time to commit to the many ideas they had in mind. Now, after a few collaborations via compilations and the odd single release, they have finally managed to conjure up their first collaborative project entitled ‘Mood Swings’. The album nicely blends Jazz infused beats with laid back vocals and a sense of familiarity that leaves us wondering why this project hadn’t happened sooner.
The features were well thought out and kept to a minimum as they employ the talents of the Boom Bap Professionals emcee Efeks (one half of Prose), the vocalist Anna Stott (Ikestra), and the talented James Greenway who handles all artwork.
