London-born Jamie Jones is a renowned DJ and a pioneer of his Paradise party at Los Angeles’ MacArthur Park. This summer, the series will be making its return, this time to LA’s city center. On Saturday, June 1st this year, Paradise in the Park will be held at Grand Park, a beautiful, historic location nestled right in between City Hall and Bunker Hill.
Paradise in the Park roots
Originally, Jones connected with LA’s Culprit crew in the early 2000s. This move later led to the debut of his Hot Natured project in 2009 on their label. In turn, this convinced Jones to set down roots in LA in 2014, making his home and studio there.
Even though he resided in LA, he rarely played in the city. Thus, when he decided to bring Paradise to LA two years ago, without a doubt, it caused quite a stir, as it was something unique. MacArthur Park was his first venture, and it was a special treat. Festival patrons danced freely and happily under the open air. It was the new spot for underground electronic music. The next upcoming Paradise in the Park promises a similar, open-air vibe. Attendees will be able to frolic on the grass beneath the iconic LA City Hall.
Paradise in the Park today
Paradise originally started as a summer residency at a hugely-popular Ibiza club in 2012. It has, since then, expanded into a globally-renowned series. Jamie Jones holds the reins of the brand, and the result is the success that follows each event. This 2019 Paradise in the Park lineup promises nothing less with greats such as Loco Dice, Latmun b2b Lauren Lane, David Berrie and more. Not only that, but local legend Doc Martin will also be making an appearance.
Early bird tickets, priced at $35 are now sold out. You can get the first release of tickets at $45. There will be a second and third release of tickets going upward in price till the final release of tickets at $55.
Paradise in the Park artist lineup
Jamie Jones is a purveyor of house: his deep and tech-house flavors never fail to get you moving. His remix of “Five Moons” by Damian Lazarus and the Ancient Moons was quite a hit. Two-time DJ Awards winner, his latest remix of Teddy Pendergrass’ “Life is a Song Worth Singing” is a glorious, groovy vibe, perfect for your summer soundtrack.
Hailing from Germany, Loco Dice offers a unique tech-house sound. His track “Out of Reach”, released in 2018, has quite a vibe. With metallic effects, weird bonks, blips and whirs, this track is definitely anything but boring. Fans can expect techno that is peppered with interesting flavor.
Latmun b2b Lauren Lane will be joining forces. Fans can expect both their sounds to flow together well: Latmun’s tech-house meshing with Lane’s house tunes. Indeed, it will be interesting to see what will come of their set.
David Berrie comes from New York City, and his sound certainly reflects it. His music is quite minimal; fans who love the roots of tech-house will definitely vibe to it.
Doc Martin has a futuristic sound that crosses many different genres. Consequently, he is known for his ability to play everything from deep house to funky tribal bass. Because of this, he is able to create soundscapes that transcends barriers.
This year, Paradise in the Park partners with Future Primitive, an LA-based production company. They are well-known for creating distinctive and memorable experiences, along with the world’s leading underground electronic talents. Attendees will be sure to delight in the venue, as they come together at Grand Park to celebrate their love of music.
