Bio..

Spanning over a 20 year period, Paul has covered a wide range of roles in the industry with extensive knowledge of the scene on a global scale. From his early days as booking agent to Sasha & Digweed and A&R manager at Jackpot Records & 7pm Management, promoter for Renaissance at Ibiza’s Pacha, label owner and in house producer at Sumsonic Records, international touring DJ and movie score & trailer composer to now song writer and producer for major label artists at Universal and Sony such as Guy Sebastian and Jess Mauboy.

Paul has firmly cemented his place as a composer and producer to some of the most respected people in the industry. From co producing Sasha’s Fundacion album and his BBC Radio 1 Maida Vale essential mix, and being asked by James Lavelle to produce his headlining Unkle Sounds show for Reading and Leeds festival, to original song writing with the legendary Fink.

Prior to moving to Sydney, Paul worked with Pete Tong MBE for 8 years, as his music advisor, producer and composer. They have remixed everyone from Underworld, NERD & Pharrell to Hotchip and have released singles on Ministry Of Sound, Toolroom, Defected & Pets Recordings. They have written the movie scores for Harry Brown on Lionsgate Films, What If for Vertigo Films and music for movie trailers Pacific Rim & Hologram For The King. Paul has supervised Pete's BBC Proms Ibiza gig at the Royal Albert Hall, his BBC Radio 1 shows, releases on FFRR including Hot Natured’s Benediction, and co produced and supervised all 15 of his DJ Mix albums to date.

Paul’s super sharp ear, meticulous attention to detail and knack for creating those special for moments in Artists work is why he has always been called in by some of the most highly respected artists in the scene.

Approached by James Lavelle to produce his headlining show at Reading & Leeds festival. 

The concept of Unkle Sounds was to produce, re-mix, sound design and re-programme all the incredible music James made with Unkle into a live DJ set for his headlining shows at Reading & Leeds Festival in the UK. Unkle has been the most forward thinking and original sounding alternative music of my generation, and James has collaborated with some of the most highly respected artists in the world such as Thom Yorke, Noel Gallagher, Ian Brown & Richard Ashcroft. 

This was a laborious project that took weeks of work, creating special moments between parts, stems and old classics over new versions and remixes whilst really focusing on detailed production & sound design. James has impeccable taste in music and his catalogue of music speaks for itself, so to be asked to produce this made it one of the most exciting projects to be involved in

Harry Brown

A modest law-abiding citizen, Harry Brown (Michael Caine) is a retired Marine and a widower who lives alone on a depressed housing estate. His only company is his best friend Leonard (David Bradley). When Leonard is murdered by a gang of thugs, Harry feels compelled to act and is forced to dispense his own brand of justice. As he bids to clean up the run-down estate where he lives, his actions bring him into conflict with the police, led by investigating officer DCI Frampton (Emily Mortimer) and Charlie Creed-Miles.
