Paradise On Earth is Hot Creations' new DJ mix series, with the title doffing an over-sized cap to Jamie Jones' semi-regular Paradise club events. Volume one is mixed by two rising stars of the colossal-room house scene, Patrick Topping and Toronto-based Nathan Barato. The latter handles disc one, moving from the post-boompty beats of Derrick Carter and Moritz Piske, to the throbbing techno of Robert Hood. Along the way, Barato finds space to squeeze in cuts from Ian Pooley, Green Velvet and ItaloJohnson. Topping takes a different tack on disc two, regularly breaking up the 4/4 rhythms with older, breakbeat-driven house cuts, while also finding space for the previously unreleased "Acid Gadaffi" by Jack N Jerk, and Metaboman's deliciously woozy "Next Please".
