Havana Candy - The Black Keys EP - Paper Recordings
Havana Candy is Joe Lucas who lives in Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire and is part of a growing collective of artists that includes Flash Atkins and Jamie L.
He has had releases under various guises over the years on labels that include 20:20 Vision and Fat City and more recently on his own Havana Candy Records; next up is Tusk Wax Records. His sound is deep and hypnotic with an analogue sensibility that mixes up balearic, disco and house as the three original tracks here demonstrate
