In response to the Koro Koro classic ‘No Smoke’ comes the Deeper Shades Recordings debut release from Jojoflores & Joe DiPadova.

A generous rhythm intro sets the tone and is a perfect prelude to the subtle, introspective key work and sonic flourishes that follow. Yes Smoke’s meditative nature does not limit it to late night home listening or simply headphone music.  This has kept some of the hottest dancefloors moving worldwide over the past six months.

After years as one of the world’s most in demand DJs, Jojoflores (Gotsoul / Therapy – Montreal) has been quietly sneaking the role of producer into his rolodex of talents. Yes Smoke is his strongest showing to date and his partnership with up and comer Joe DiPadova proves successful.  Joe has been rewriting the book on house music in Phoenix, Az and has releases out now on Tribal Winds, Poji Rec & Getaway Recordings.

Deep, subtle, moving…Yes Smoke is a fitting debut for Lars Behrenroth’s new label Deeper Shades Recordings.  Expect great things to grow from these roots!

linernotes: DJ Offbeat (Soul Funktion - NYC)
