A self confessed vinyl junkie, Paul is one of those increasingly rare breed of DJs that still lugs crates of black wax to every gig. Originally discovering funk, soul, jazz, boogie and disco through hip hop, house, and techno, Paul’s love of the music led him back to its roots and he has spent the last 20+ years buying the tracks that either influenced or were sampled on his favourite records. As you can imagine he discovered many more gems along the way.
Elsewhere he has shared the decks with the likes of Norman Jay, Greg Wilson, Manchester stalwarts Darren Laws, Martin Brew, The Unabombers, Jon K, Mikey Donn, Beatphreak, the Boogizm crew, and The Dead Horse Gang, and he has played at award winning Festivals such as The Vintage Festival, Beat-Herder, Solfest, Trailer Trash, The Scottish Soulful Weekender, Alfresco, Kendal Calling to name a few.
On the 45 side of things, Paul is one half of the DJ tag team that supports The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show when it rolls into town and has supported Smoove & Turrell, Templebys and The Mouse Outfit.
Over the past year Paul has been busy with his new residency at The Reboot Project in Manchester, and the opening of his new Dig Deep Records store.
When asked to describe his style he said “soulful music that has the funk”.
