According to Paul himself, he is a man who made himself. He was born in 1963 in the capital of Great Britain. He did not immediately find his calling. At first I got the profession of a cook, but I realized that it was not his. From the age of 16 he began to act as a DJ. In this endeavor he was supported by a friend, Trevor Fang. With his light hand, he became a professional DJ, in his expression - a discovert.
An 18-year-old guy, he went to conquer America. He worked with several record companies, met and made friends with the legendary disco DJ Larry Levan. A year later he returned to his homeland, and completely surrendered to club music: he writes remixes, produces individual musicians and entire groups, performs at the dance floor in the capital's Project club as a DJ. Not only that, he leads a hip-hop column in a fashion magazine.
He visited Ibiza, with his like-minded people, where at that time there were famous masters of trance, including his friend Trevor. He liked a mixture of saul, hop, house and disco combined with local melodies. He returns home again and is closely engaged in the popularization of trance. In 1989, he founded his own label, Perfecto Records, and began producing trance music. Due to his active life position, he became one of the most outstanding DJs in the world in the late 90s. He gradually moves away from the radical house and increasingly prefers trance. In 1999, Paul′s name was entered in the Guinness Book of Records as the most prosperous DJ in the world.
If you look at the voting results in the contest “Top 100 DJs by Armin fan”, then in 2013 he took the 22nd place, and the next year he moved to eighteenth place and entered the top twenty outstanding DJs of our time.
