'Shame' is the oldest school so far owned by Mr. Joe Ventura himself. It seems like he's been transported from the dance floor around 1993 straight into the future with a bang in typical JV style. The queen of Brand New Heavies and her UK certified soul sister Sulene Fleming join forces with Joe once again and arrive with a sublime vocal performance to match.
The work is presented as a romantic ode to eclecticism, which is based on strange and elusive terrain, but it is there that this singular producer achieves his ultimate goal: sound new without being it, sound old without looking like it, alternating each genre. with mastery and exit the labyrinth knowing that, either forward or backward, the journey has been worth it.
Few producers know how to play his cards as well as he does, scoring a work that questions the rules of the genre, building a timeless set, to which we will go over time trying to decipher that magical and complex mechanism that achieves transcends all expectations.
Altogether, this work is so intense and addictive, that it seizes oneself like sweet poison, while progressively transporting us, as few producers with a certain fluidity are willing to do. We don't know what the future holds, but we do know that this album is a testimony to a present that seeks energy and positivity anywhere.
