Maestro Paul 3 Ric

Colorado Springs, United States

Open Format


His name is Paul 3ric [that’s ERIC with a capital 3] and contrary to most turntable technicians, he prefers to consider himself as a Maestro and NOT a DJ! This may seem a bit odd, considering he looks, acts, smells, tastes, feels, breaths & spins like a DJ. BUT if you look up the definition of both you will find… A disc jockey (also called DJ) is an individual who selects and plays prerecorded music for an intended audience.

Maestro (or maestra for women) means “master” or “teacher” in Italian and Spanish. It is used in English to designate a master in an artistic field – usually someone who has gained enough knowledge within that field to be able to successfully teach students, though the term may sometimes be conferred through sheer respect for an artist’s works.

Now you get it… Paul 3ric fell in love with electronica music when he was 13 and now, pushing age 25, he’s broadened his horizons to every genre. Crossing country favorites like ‘Rocky Mtn. High’ with laidback drum and bass to create the ultimate Colorado State anthem.

As well, he also likes to mix from genre to genre keeping people interested in what he’ll play next. From Top 40 remixes to mixes you’ll only hear from HIS collection, he’s kept residencies at a number of Colorado clubs such as: Blondie’s, the VUE, and his most longest residency, 40 Thieves Hookah Lounge. Paul 3ric has played other venues in Colorado as a guest and looks forward to traveling a lot in the future.
