He has developed a great taste and vast knowledge of music, owns an enviable collection of classic house vinyl but is most of all a great selector that exactly when and which track to drop to create the best energy on the dancefloor. “I am a dance DJ. I’m known as a house artist, but I don’t mind mixing techno or tech-house tracks in my sets if they fit in and make people dance.” Last but not least, his passion for music is insatiable as he preserves that fresh and insatiable curiosity which pushes him to a constant search of little music gems everyone is so keen to hear in his sets.While younger audience refer to him as ‘that tattooed guy with minimalistic specs who plays great house’, most of DJs who were active in the mid 90s, also knew Paolo as a music dealer.
