Cole Knight shares 10 tracks to listen before ‘Paradise in the Park’

2023 is shaping up to be a breakthrough year for Cole Knight. A sure-fire marker that she’s an artist on the rise, her bookings this year include her first Coachella, Art of the Wild Las Vegas, WECANDANCE festival in Belgium and Diplo’s Higher Ground event series. Having recently been making her mark playing shows across the US and Tulum where she saw out the pandemic, Cole Knight has been on a journey of self-discovery, and she’s finding herself on the dance floor.

As Knight looks forward into the rest of 2023 and beyond, she hopes to see the industry becoming increasingly more welcoming for women. In her role in the scene, she intends to play her part in bringing those historical barriers down. And in her first forays into production, Knight is allowing her intricate understanding of sound and her experience behind the decks to inform her own blossoming style. “I want to put my flavour into the world,” she says. “It’s going to be a reflection of me, the places I travel to and the experiences I have with the people I meet. It’s going to be groovy, that’s for sure.”

Held at Pershing Square on June 3rd and 4th, 2023 in partnership with LA powerhouse Future Primitive, ‘Paradise In The Park’ will see performances from SG Lewis (DJ Set), DJ Harvey, Jamie Jones b2b Seth Troxler, Mason Collective, Chloe Caillet, Honeyluv, and more

Jones’ globally renowned Paradise series first debuted in 2012 at the legendary DC-10 in Ibiza. In conjunction with Future Primitive, Jamie Jones first debuted the ‘Paradise In The Park’ concept in 2017, selling out Macarthur Park, followed by another sold-out show in 2019 at Grand Park, before moving to Pershing Square in 2021.

Cole Knight will be performing at Paradise in the Park on Saturday, June 3rd, 2023. Ahead of the special event the artist selected 10 tracks to listen to before. For more info and tickets click here.

1. James Pepper – Praise you

“This one is a heater, wow! I love the groove and the euphoric summer house vibe while still keeping high energy. Plus the vocals add a proper crowd-moving element”

2. Gat Decor – Passion (Naked Mix)

“This is one of those tracks I could listen to forever. It feels like Gat Decor is telling us the wildest story, almost like an entire DJ set packed into one delicious record. I love showing this to
everyone I love. It’s too good to keep to myself.”

3. Unknown Artist – Chicos, Chicas – TCR002

“I discovered this track at T-Bag Records in Miami. Taimur, the owner of the shop has incredible taste. This is one of the records he pulled for me. I have been hooked ever since. The chaotic drums, unique vocals, and silly little dodadodada build-ups get the party going.”

4. Bailey Ibbs – Nokstella

“This one reminds me of an old-school Nina Kraviz vocal with a fresh twist and a lot of energy. It makes me bounce up and down like I’m already at the rave.”

5.  LouLou Players – Thinking About (FREY’s Gym Remix) – LouLou Records

“Just picture it: old school deep house bassline under the sexy funny vocals “thinking about going to the gym, ha , yeah…”, How can you not smile and groove to it?”

6. Sweely – Problems 

“This whole album is sick! My favorite track is “Problems”. I love the Zep sample and Kraftwerk vibes. This bouncy heater
brings the party.”

7. Sexy Acid – Black Cadmium 

“This track puts me into a trance. It’s like an acid lullaby but hits the dancefloor hard. The layers that keep adding on as the
track progresses make you feel like you’re in a video game advancing to the next level every minute or so. It’s become one of my most played tunes this year.”

8. Miguel Lobos – Escuchela 

“Sexy vocals and cool grooves mixed with dreamy piano chords, say less.”

9. Saraga – No

“From the first note you feel the psychedelic groover
developing. There is a trippy progression that keeps you on your toes wanting more as you lose yourself in the journey.”

10. Rollin Bass – Fleax

“This bass hits. I love the subtle progression of
elements as the track intensifies. One of those heavy hitters that makes everyone scrunch up their faces and bob their heads.”
