Mark Knight, Sgt Slick, Beverley Knight ‘I Wanna Be Your Lover’ Fool’s Paradise Records

Fool’s Paradise is the hot new label from Toolroom Records’ Mark Knight, as he goes back to his funky, soulful, and vocal House roots with a focus on real instrumentation and production, coupled with great song writing. Making a bold entrance with the label’s first release, Mark joins forces with Australia’s Sgt Slick and British Soul star, Beverley Knight, on brilliant new rendition of Prince’s ‘I Wanna Be Your Lover’, respectfully bringing a fresh vibe for today’s party people. This is a beautifully produced soulful house affair that ticks all the right boxes with its funky guitars, warm pads, lush keys and an outstanding vocal performance from Beverley. Without a doubt this is a brave cover to do, but the trio have absolutely nailed it and then some!
