The Paradise party recently hit the road and it is clearly taking the world by storm as this past appearance at the Brooklyn Mirage sold out and now, their Amsterdam Dance Event show at NSDM in October and Printwerks, London in November. The line up in Amsterdam is set to be, Jamie Jones, Dubfire, Apollonia, Matador (live), Patrick Topping, Richy Ahmed b2b Andrea Oliva, Peggy Gou, Detlef and Lauren Lane.
What could have been a more spectacular pairing? Paradise was hosted in Brooklyn at the infamous Brooklyn Mirage, which has been a popular pop-up Summer venue for the last two-three years before debuting this year as its own permanent spot in North Bushwick/East Williamsburg warehouse district. Being the home for the notorious Cityfox brand and having hosted others such as, All Day I Dream and the free Thursday, Morgana parties, The Brooklyn Mirage is cementing itself as the venue to check out.
The line-up for the NY event had David Berrie opening followed by Nathan Barato, Doc Martin, Honey Dijon, Tiga, Dubfire & Jamie Jones. In typical NY last minute fashion, the party announced a second small stage of acts to compliment the show with local Brooklyn love from Bilaliwood, David Paglia, Elon & Taimur. The two stages gave the crowd the some sway between the heavy tech-house on the main floor and some sweet vinyl only house beats in the little garden stage. For me personally, the showstoppers were Doc Martin, Honey Dijon and Brooklyn local, David Paglia.
Though I have always had a love-hate relationship with the Mirage during their pop-up days, I have to say that aside from the party being wall-to-wall packed out, the production and projections were spot on. The entire main area outside has visuals projected at 360 degrees engulfing you into a mesmerizing world whilst your favorite DJs drop the hammer of Thor on our ears! If standing in the sardine packed crowd is too much for you, you can always make your way to their balcony areas that wrap around the venue and you can check out the show from above. If you haven't had a chance to experience the new Brooklyn Mirage, catch their (outdoor) closing party tomorrow and get ready for the debuting of their indoors portion, Avant Gardner that is hosting Maceo Plex's Mosaic Halloween party in October.
It is no surprise that the Paradise party was sold out when it offered such as a great line up and a pretty damn cool venue! Check out some images from the show (Photography by @aLIVEcoverage):
