After many years of DJing in the UK, Paul decided to move to Holland in 2000 to further his DJing and promote his residency nights. He now co-runs a regular 365mag night at Club Sol and Nightclub Panama, bringing in the cream of real deep house artists to the city, such as X-press 2, Lucien Foort, Parks and Wilson, Danny Howells and Austin Leeds.

His move to Holland came after he held down residencies in London for more then 10 years in clubs such as the Vinyl Frontier and Re:Mission.

On the international front Paul is booked regularly to play in the US, Israel, Sweden, Germany, UK and Dubai. America in particular is a point of popularity for Paul, touring the country four times in 2004, playing in New York, DC, Seattle, Philadelphia and New Haven. He also supplies a monthly mix to C89.5 in the US and to DFR Radio in the Czech Republic. He has also supplied in-flight entertainment for Belgian carrier Sobelair.

Paul has embarked on a studio collaboration with the multi-talented Dutchman Muzikjunki to release Closer Than You, and his single with Philly based BCML FUN/Ladysparkes comes out 21st February on UK label Silver Planet which is in the box of DJ Sasha as we speak. With tours planned in Israel at the end of March and America in April, watch Paul go even further musically in 2005.
