Paradise Garage means a lot of things to a lot of different people, but if you were around NYC in the 90’s than those two words take on a profoundly holier meaning. For those who are new, Paradise Garage served as a playground to NYC’s bourgeoning house and disco scene welcoming any and all types of boogie monsters looking to spread love and joy in the now SoHo district of NYC. What now seems like common practice was once pioneered by the legendary dance hall including placing the DJ at the center of the party’s focus, a practice that birthed the funk phenomenon Larry Levan in the flesh.

Before we know it, December is going to be here, and the countdown to the second edition of the Electric Paradise Music Festival in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic can officially begin, if it hasn’t already. On December 19th, this annual festival will be taking over its unique beach venue with the help of world-class artists such as Guy Gerber, Hot Since 82, Chromeo, AlunaGeorge, Major Lazer, Matador, Moon Boots, and more. Another artist that will be playing amongst the art, food, design, technology, paradise, and more is the New York-based studio wizard, Nicolas Jaar, who was just announced, along with the full Stage 3 lineup.
There are only a handful of artists that are held in such high esteem as Nicolas Jaar. Known for his eclectic, far-out style of electronic music intended to take listeners on a journey, this Chile-born mastermind has built a large cult following through his one-of-a-kind releases, and mind-bending DJ/live sets that can include everything from ambient, to disco, to techno – all artfully woven together. Jaar is a true artist that strives for perfection in his craft, and he makes this apparent in everything that he does, while also going against the grain to push a transcendent sound unlike any other. There is a reason why he plays some of the biggest music festivals around the world, and if you’re not familiar with that reason yet, we highly recommend seeing him live, especially in a setting like Electric Paradise. Buy tickets to the festival on the official website.
