Paul Hardcastle – Rain Forest (Rare Electro Mix)

Classics: Paul Hardcastle – Rain Forest (Blue Bird)

I guess we’ll never insist enough on the necessity of protecting as much as we can our environment. Beginning with the ‘rain forest’ category…

A composer and a synth player who also can play other instruments, Paul Hardcastle went to fame in the 80’s. Thus blending Jazz and Funk vibes with a so to say electronic perspective. Remembered for his first contributions as a member of First Light and Direct Drive (remember ‘Anything’), he came to higher recognition as a solo artist though. Eventually achieving critical acclaim for his 1985 released ’19’. To be more precise, a cut about the effect the Vietnam war had on the US soldiers. His biggest success as a matter of fact, which also came in German and French spoken versions by the likes of ‘Neunzehn’ and ‘Dix-neuf’). ‘Sound Chaser’, but also ‘Rain Forest’ which saw the light the year before, standing among his other signature jams. With ‘Rain Forest’ somehow givin’ the impression of an imaginary soundtrack on a smooth electro-Jazz/Funk mood…
