Signaling the launch of Paradise Records.
Jamie Jones, label boss of Hot Creations and member of the cross-genre band Hot Natured, is launching a new project as he adds a musical side to his longstanding Paradise event series with the launch of its own label.
Paradise will showcase Jones’ early musical influences and the music behind the party’s roots while revealing “a glimpse into its future with records made for iconic moments”.
For its first voyage, Jones is presenting ‘Geekin’, a new single by North American talent Dateless.
“‘Geekin’’ (my story in a nutshell, if you will) comes from the feeling of necessity. I found myself unmoved by the general house scene, so I started listening closer than ever to the house music that still moved me. One of the artists that helped elevate my craft at the time was Toman; maybe we’ll be friends after this. What do you think, Toman!? Haha. I’m sure those who know me can feel my personality come out in this record. Whatchu know ‘bout this? Huh!” says Dateless about the new release.
Speaking on the concept behind the Paradise Records imprint, Jones notes, “People sometimes ask me why I called the Paradise parties, Paradise… Well, it was named after the Paradise Garage. I’ve always dreamt of what it would be like to attend one of Larry Levan’s famous parties. And when the opportunity to do a party in Ibiza came along, I envisioned an eclectic, colourful party as the morning sun came up filled with different types of people. No one caring about anything except for the unity, the vibe and the journey of the music.”
