One of Ibiza’s most beloved residencies, Paradise, returns to close out its season at Amnesia on October 5, spearheaded by world-renowned producer Jamie Jones. After an eight-year run at DC-10, Paradise relocated to Amnesia Ibiza in 2020. The Paradise residency sets out to create a party that feels eclectic and creative but still with intimate, family energy.

Ben Sterling took much inspiration from his family’s collection of retro disco records. Combined with his love of classic Chicago house and a bit of acid flair, you’ve got the iconic Sterling sound.
