Biography

There are very few dance music producers whose creative capacity stretches to a full artist album, so Paul Maddox deserves the fullest praise for his engaging and inspirational double album debut on Tidy.

However, his remarkable feat shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to anyone who graces a full-on dancefloor frequently. Paul has been at the forefront of hard dance consistently since he was dubbed ‘one of clubland’s hottest properties’ earlier in the decade when he was the tender age of 16.

The wizard employs a variety of successful guises, such as Abandon, Azure, O.G.R, Barely Legal (with Guyver) and Olive Grooves, and has collaborated on dozens of all-conquering anthems with the biggest and best in hard music.

This illustrious list of DJs bedazzled by the Maddox magic includes Lisa Lashes, Anne Savage, Andy Farley, The Tidy Boys, Rob Tissera, Lee Haslam, Steve Hill, Tara Reynolds, Ingo and Jon Rundell.

What is perhaps most exciting about this sonic sensation is his ability to turn his hand to other genres with assurance, style and ease.

Maddox enjoyed massive mainstream success and BBC 1FM airplay with his Azure creations, resulting in remix requests from the chart-topping Data and Positiva labels.

The latter released a memorable rework of Ferry Corstens ‘Rock Your Body, Rock’ anthem which opened the on-fire youngster up to a whole new audience.

As a result, demand for Paul’s presence in the globe’s most hallowed DJ booths has rocketed.

He supported the Tidy Boys on two national tours and has played all 12 of the Tidy Weekenders along with a string of sold-out events for Polysexual, Frantic, Dance Academy, Creamfields, Extreme and I Love VC. And that’s just in Britain!

Paul’s passport has in recent years been stamped from DJ jaunts to Norway, Canada, Ireland, Moscow, Japan, America and New Zealand. Each of these treks resulted in repeat bookings, the best measure of any DJ’s success.

Two new tricks up the musical magician’s sleeve are his acclaimed fresh and funky warm-up DJ sets – in the vein of his Olive Grooves work – and his highly-charged live shows, each of which is a guaranteed exclusive set never to be repeated elsewhere.

Meanwhile, the prolific producer’s frantic work-rate shows no sign of letting up.

Already pencilled in for release before the end of the year are two fresh collaborations with both Ben Stevens and Paul Glazby for Vicious, a tantalising team-up with Nik Denton, and solo singles for Tidy and Vicious.
