PIED PIPER PAUL

FULL-ON AND FUNKY PSY TRANCE/TECHNO - FROM DARKEST HOUR TO SUNRISE SESSIONS!

DJ Profile

Paul was born 1966 into a world of tones and a family with great musical passion, which set grounds for an early interest in all sorts of music. Played the trumpet up until 15 years of age. Begun DJing in New Zealand 1983-86 (pre techno-boom), playing music from the 60's, 70's and 80's. After travelling for six years Paul eventually settled in London in 1992. There discovered the exploding underground dance scene and moved & grooved around to different beats in Europe until finding his passion for dancing was met particularly by Goa/Psy trance and techno music. Decided to take up DJing again in 1994. Debut was at the well known 'The Fridge' in Brixton, London, at an Escape from Samsara party in 1995. Since then Paul has continued to combine travels with DJ bookings world wide and has gone from strength to strength to become one of the few trance DJs capable of creating an ecstatic atmosphere at large events or purist underground parties alike. He has accompanied and enjoyed playing along other trance DJs/acts such as Tsuyoshi, Cosmosis, X-Dream, Nick Taylor, James Monro, Synchro, Xavier, Anti, Mark Allen, Total Eclipse, Hallucinogen, Planet Ben, Tarsis, Atmos etc.

Style

Beatmixed Funky to Full-on progressive/psy trance. Moulding sound to space, place and people - rocking the crowd into the rhythm. Mediums used are: vinyl, CD and sometimes DAT. Whilst behind the decks Paul can be seen physically grooving to the beat and interacting with the crowd which inspires and adds further energy to the party and his set.
