World renowned DJ and producer, Hot Creations label boss, founder and curator of the
Paradise global event series and a member of cross-genre band Hot Natured, over the last
decade Jamie Jones had pioneered his own distinct sound that has paved the way for a
warmer, more melodic, side of techno to emerge.
It was DJs Can Dance - the East London warehouse parties he threw in the mid 00’s - that
helped him make his mark on the capital, while the countless summers spent playing in Ibiza
solidified him as an integral cog in the island’s music scene. 2010 saw him hold an esteemed
residency at DC10 for Monday’s Circoloco parties, but little did he know that a year later he
would be at the helm of one of the island’s most respected parties at the very same club.
This year marks the seventh season of Paradise at it’s Ibiza home of DC10. As a raver, this is
the club where Jamie spent his summers on the dance floor and where he came to meet the
family that would later make Paradise a reality. Wanting to offer something different to the Ibiza
party circuit and inspired by Larry Levan’s legendary Paradise Garage parties in New York, he
set out to create a party that was eclectic, creative with an intimate family feel. Now he’s
bringing a little bit of Paradise to every corner of the globe with parties landing in cities like
Miami, New York, LA, Moscow and Toronto. Over the years Paradise has grown globally,
partnering with like minded brands and festivals including The Warehouse Project, Printworks,
Tomorrowland, We Are Fstvl, BPM and DGTL.
To date, Jamie’s label Hot Creations has put out over 100 releases, with the 100th, ‘Kooky
Chords’, coming from Jamie himself last September, hitting the number 2 spot on Beatport’s
chart. The label has also helped launch the careers of numerous artists such as Patrick
Topping, Richy Ahmed and Detlef, who also make up part of the loyal Paradise family Jamie
has built around him.
