Steadily etching his name in the electronic music realm, Manchester-based talent Sam Curran has become a familiar face on Jamie Jones Hot Creations‘ sister label, Hottrax, boasting two standout releases, including the chart-topping ‘Urban Shaker’ that reached a coveted Beatport genre number one spot.

Jamie Jones’ Paradise Music invites UK DJ/producer Sam Curran for his new EP ‘Boogie Nights’ featuring a masterful collaboration with house music legend Todd Terry.
Arriving on Jones’ vibrant imprint, the three-track collection delivers two label debuts from both producers while offering an exciting first-time collaboration, set for release on 3rd May 2024.

Here, he steps up for his biggest release to date as Jones invites him for an impressive label debut on Paradise Music, revealing two funky originals and a showstopping collaboration alongside one of house music’s heroes, Grammy-nominated Todd Terry, across his ‘Boogie Nights’ EP.

“A long time in the works, Boogie Nights is a special EP for me. I feel it really showcases my sound moving forward. It’s also an unbelievable honour to be releasing a track with the LEGEND Todd Terry, a real pinch me moment.” –

Bursting with a relentless funk, ‘Boogie Nights’ comes alive through vibrant percussion, driving kicks, and rich chords, immersing listeners in a nonstop boogie affair. Next, Terry delivers a masterclass in house music as the pair link up for the irresistible ‘Sunshine’ with Lisa Pure’s vocals shimmering throughout the track for the perfect terrace anthem. To close, ‘We Want The Funk’ is a record full of attitude and groove, with sassy hooks, quirky synths and driving beats solidifying the EP as another stellar offering in Paradise Music’s catalogue.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
