Lineup :: DJs :: Justin Paul
Los Angeles, CA
JUSTIN PAUL is an acclaimed DJ, producer and creator of the PLAYLOOP music brand. His success is attested to more than his DJ performances and producing; it is for his contribution to the global scene via PLAYLOOP and helping to empower The Philadelphia Experiment (PEX) artist collective. His DJ sets are known for being musically eclectic, spiritual and somewhat unexpected. This is one of the many reasons he is booked to play at some of the nations most elite clubs, festivals, and shows opening for the likes of AIR, Bassnectar, Deadmau5, Disco Biscuits, LCD Soundsystem, Nick Warren, Orbital, Prodigy, Rusko, Thievery Corporation, Trentemøller, Zero 7 and more.
Justin Paul’s passage into the next level with writing and producing original tracks began in 1997 after becoming housemates with Philadelphia music legends DJ Dozia and King Britt. After seven years of apprenticing in the studio and DJing with the Philly legends, Justin Paul created his first EP release in 2005 featuring the deep tech-house track, “Red Shift.” It not only put Justin on the electronic music production map, but the infamous Carl Cox featured it on his radio show, Global Sessions BBC. “Red Shift” has also been featured and played by many other DJs around the world. The tracks that followed were pivotal in establishing Justin’s intrepid approach to music whether he’s reviewing new artists for Playloop, preparing a DJ set, or concocting a new compilation CD.
Justin Paul’s career transformed again in the Summer 2006 when he founded Playloop Records. One of the East Coast’s most groundbreaking, eclectic labels with an amazing music menu of artists (Dave Hughes, DJ Everyday, Kezner, Lee Mayjahs?, Microstar, Ross D and The Model). Playloop is JP’s dream and vehicle in which he extends his love for music out to the universe. With Playloop, he’s dedicated to crashing global concerts, events, festivals and parties with his sounds from the East Coast — heavy baselines of deep house, techno, house, electro and tech-house. Diversity is at the heart of why the Playloop label brand has been a huge success among a crowded scene.
Justin Paul and the labels original music and remixes have been featured by Beatport, DanceTracksDigital, DJ Times, Global Sessions BBC radio, iTunes, Junodownload, Resident Advisor and by DJs around the world. See Justin’s full bio and tour schedule at http://www.justinpaul.com
