Having been introduced to turntablism at an early age by his uncle; a prominent New York hip-hop deejay, Paul Avila was exposed to the fundamentals of scratching, beat matching, blending, etc. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Paul learned all he could before his adored uncle passed away. From then on, he made a sworn vow to become a well- known successful deejay to honor his beloved uncle. He moved to Miami where he began his journey as a hip-hop deejay; known as DJ Seduction. Within a couple years, at the age of 16, DJ Seduction became a frequently seen name on all styles of party flyers. From all- ages to the 18 and over parties. He soon got caught up with promotions, joining teams such as Dream team, Partyerz, and F.U.N. With that he decided to put his deejay career on hold.
In 2005, Paul was introduced to his new passion, house music. He then determined that he was going to pursue the promise he made to himself but now as a legendary house DJ. Thanks to his trustworthy friend Maven, Paul was deemed to be known as DJ Paul E.
