Project Pablo: the classic contemporary

The omnipotent search engine which often seems like a time machine in disguise, took us to Canada and introduced us to Project Pablo and more specific, the album I Want To Believe, a 2015 brainchild of first-Vancouver-but-now-Montreal based DJ Patrick Holland.

“Holland was inspired by “ultra-real types of smoothness” a la George Benson, Sade, and Steely Dan’s Aja when making this record. Those artists are often pigeonholed as cheesy and trite but there’s a sincerity to them that makes listeners vulnerable and engage with their music wholeheartedly. So be it the confidence that you’ve found a new, bigger love on Benson’s “Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love For You”, a picture of love as a support system and everlasting friendship in Sade’s “By Your Side”, or trying to overcome disenchantment with the world in Steely Dan’s “Deacon Blues”.” Click image and/or links and let it all in.
