The Decoders have have enlisted UK soul sensation Alice Russell (Tru Thoughts) to tackle one of their favorite Minnie Riperton songs, Adventures In Paradise, from her 1975 LP of the same name. Musically, they are taking a departure from the laid back funk of the original, and instead, have adapted the original into a driving afro-latin infused, Band of Gypsies-esque arrangement. The added grit of Alice's soulful wailing over the anthemic horn section and pumping bassline conjures the presence of Minnie's spirit more than ever as they continue to embark on this tribute journey to her. Stay tuned for their next batch of songs to round out the LP later this year, Adventures From Paradise Vol 3.
