Paul has been DJing since the 90s, honing his skills with 5 hour sets at The Departure Lounge in Preston and going on to play at hundreds of events all over the UK. Now a seasoned club and festival DJ, Paul has steadily built a reputation as a respected selector that plays across the board.
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 and house, Paulís love of the music led him back to its roots and he has spent the last 17 or so 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.
Paul is possibly best known as the host of the 'Dig Deep' show on Cowbell Radio. Broadcasting since 2006, Paul has worked with some of the most respected DJís and live acts from around the world including Mr Scruff, Rahaan, Danielle Moore, Mr Mendel, Sean P, Boogie Nite, Mikey Donn, Marcel Vogel, Yogi Haughton and Manmademusic to name a few.
Paul is also co-promoter and resident DJ at itch - Prestonís longest standing club night which has brought the likes of John Morales, RSL, Domu, Cottam, Diesler, Treva Whateva and Jon K to the city. Elsewhere he has shared the decks with Manchester stalwarts Darren Laws, Martin Brew, Beatphreak and The Unabombers, and has played at Beat-Herder, Trailer Trash, The Scottish Soulful Weekender, Kendal Calling, Perfumed Garden, The Snug, Horseplay and Herbal Sessions...
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. Heís also one of the many resident DJs at Manchester based club night Boogizm ìa party full of music aficionados that know how to let loose on the dancefloorî.
When asked to describe his style he said "soulful music that has the funk".
The Dig Deep show is broadcast live on the 3rd Saturday of the month on Cowbell Radio.
