Just a little over a month after Jamie Jones and his Paradise brand took over Pershing Square, I found myself yet again at the Downtown L.A. oasis on another late Saturday afternoon. Hot Since 82 was the master of ceremonies this time around though with a very generous, extended set that spanned five hours in length. 

Daley Padley debuted his Hot Since 82 production alias about ten years ago and he’s been churning out one floor-filler after another since then, so providing what the fans wanted wasn’t expected to be a problem. Although, we were treated to that and a whole lot more. The U.K. Northerner had quite a bit up his sleeve. Ibiza anthems and tech-house bangers intertwined his established remixes and productions. Finding a lull moment proved to be quite tricky.

Early in his set, he warmed up the evening with R&B house vibes courtesy of tunes like MK‘s legendary remix of Jodeci’s “Freek’N You” as well as the more recent 2021 Valentino Khan remix of “Way 2 Sexy” by Drake and Future. Not too long afterwards though, he started to really heat things up with tech-house bangers like Mason Maynard‘s “Ejaculate,” Taty Munoz’s “Alteration,” and of course, the always bangin’ “Say What” by Gary Beck which was met with rousing approval about half-way through his set.
