What’s the Where/When/What of your mixtape?

We put this mixtape together last year for our Notting Hill Carnival set. We had a load of fun getting the tunes together for it and practicing, and we decided to record one of those practice sessions which ended up as this mix. 

What can Paradisians expect from your set at Lost Paradise 2017?

We’ve been having just as much fun putting together our set for Lost Paradise this year – you guys can expect a super fun, high energy set of our favourite tunes of the minute plus a bunch of classic carnival tunes that we love. We bring a load of Jamaican and Caribbean influences into our set by way of London and the UK bass vibe – everything from the latest dancehall to grime and UK Garage, some D&B and everything in between really.

What’s the Where/When/What of your mixtape?

Literally just finished it! I usually record mixes live, but my gear kooked it so this is an Ableton job. However I hope my style still comes through which is a bit rougher than super clean cut mixes which I find a bit boring. This mix is house and disco with a dash of acid. I’m stoked to include Andy Garvey first release “club music,” bit of Peggy Gou who was here recently as well as local producer Eduardo Muchacho. I’m often inspired by the events and people around me as well as always finding the space to get a bit heavy/weird and challenge myself to bring it back to something more joyful. 

What can Paradisians expect from your set at Lost Paradise 2017?

Offense, defence, red cards, yellow cards, jerseys, balls, sticks and track shoes… maybe some bibs and a snitch. Hopefully a win! 

RICKY COOPER

What’s the Where/When/What of your mixtape?

The Mix was recorded live at Return to Rio Launch party… Warming up for one of my favourite artists in the world, Davi!

We were just trying to keep the sound interesting and smooth to prepare the room for Davi… Its quite an art, which I really enjoy doing holding back setting the scene for the evening.

What can Paradisians expect from your set at Lost Paradise 2017?

Lots of fresh new music that will make you smile and bring joy to the dance-floor 

QUOTES & REVIEWS

  • “Lost Paradise was like a big backyard party that just spiralled out of control; in the best way possible. A beautiful setting, a lovely cool river to swim in (or to hold an unofficial mini rave, as the case turned out), an entire corner of the grounds devoted to yoga and meditation and relaxation, and barely a bright neon flashing alcohol sponsorship logo to be seen, it carried the casual and laidback vibe of a much smaller festival — while still attracting some of the country’s most exciting and beloved live acts.”

    – HUFFINGTON POST

    “Lost Paradise is an experience that extends far beyond anything that could be promoted, advertised, or even expected. Quirky, eccentric, and so utterly unique, the adventure Losties holds for one is no same adventure for another. The festival itself is split into various sections that altogether provide an immersive experience for individual, couple and even family. Not only does the festival offer a chance to see internationally loved artists along with Aussie grown favourites, but includes mind, body and soul activities for the enjoyment and healing of all attendees; young and old.”

    – AUS MUSIC SCENE
  • “Lost Paradise is the nuanced, well-rounded, quiet achiever of Aussie festivals; big enough to deliver on the great acts, but small enough to still have an air of intimacy about it.”

    – MTV TRAVEL

    “Fancy welcoming in New Year amongst a bunch of friendly, live music and yoga loving revellers? Then Lost Paradise is for you. Over three days an 8000-strong crowd of families, wellness warriors, nature-lovers and hipsters descend on NSW’s picturesque Glenworth Valley to experience a festival like no other.”

    – NEWS.COM.AU
  • “This is Lost Paradise’s third year and while that’s quite young in festival years, they keep proving they mean business. Their ethos extends past music too and the festival — held in Glenworth Valley (just an hour north of Sydney) — is built around a mix of art, yoga, performance and food. Because there’s nothing like a little yoga to dust off a festival hangover.”

    – CONCRETE PLAYGROUND

    “There are music festivals, then there is the mind-body-soul experience that is Lost Paradise.”

    – TIME OUT
  • “If you’re the adventurous type, being amongst the spectacular Glenworth Valley is heaven! Have a kayak… experience the spiritual realm in the Shambala tent. Throughout the festival there is always something great going on…”

    – MTV

    “Lost Paradise changed my life. I continually chase the feeling of community and friendliness it gives me. All my friends are sick of hearing me talk about it.”

    – JACK MORRISON, LOST PARADISE TRIBE
  • “You’ve already made Lost Paradise great! I will be spending every New Years there, thanks the fantastic memories and a wonderful start to the new year.”

    – OLIVIA BOOTH, LOST PARADISE TRIBE

    “The food vendors last year were pretty much all you could hope for… lots of variety and not too expensive!”

    – GEORGIA BURNS, LOST PARADISE TRIBE
  • “Keep doing what you’re doing! Such an amazing, intimate festival. Felt like everyone there was one big family. Had a really amazing feel – everyone was supportive and comfortable and wanted each other to have a fabulous time.”

    – JANICE MULLER, LOST PARADISE TRIBE

    “Bars tucked away in the forest, spa treatments, and 7,000 beautiful humans partying to the world’s best musicians: Welcome to Lost Paradise, Australia’s answer to Coachella.”

    – DAILYMAIL
  • “Lost Paradise is committed to giving punters a distinctly boutique experience, with an attendance of 8,000 punters, all getting lost in live music from some of the world’s most original musicians, food curated by Sydney’s top chefs, and more.”

    – TONEDEAF

    “All the elements are spot on – location, audience, line-up and weather. Wonderful memories of an inspirational festival.”

    – GREG WILSON
  • “I remember the first time I played this festival I went for a walk around and thought, ‘this is the kind of festival that if I wasn’t working at I’d go to’. Last year after I played I walked around out the front to see Motor City Drum Ensemble and my feelings were the same – I’d happily do it again…”

    – TOUCH SENSITIVE

    “Lost Paradise has been and will always be such a special festival experience for me. I’ve never felt such a tight community vibe like that from a festival before. From the punters, the music and the staff, everything was beyond expectation. I’ll definitely be back as a punter as soon as I can.”

    – YOUNG FRANCO
  • “One of the most magical spots we’ve ever played in Oz and a night complimented by generous staff and hospitality that really looked after us. A show we’ll never forget”
