Legendary DJ Tall Paul began his career in the late 80s, playing for private parties at his family’s venue, Turnmills. At the same time Paul started working with pirate radio stations Touchdown FM and the capital’s seminal pirate Sunrise FM. From there he went on to get residencies at Trade, Zap Club in Brighton and from there met up with Shelley Boswell, which lead to regular slots at the Gardening Clubs’ “Club For Life”.
In 1992 Paul put out his first vinyl offering – the white label ‘Love Rush’, a Trade anthem. He then hooked up with Hooj Choons’ Red Jerry and came up with the dance classic “Rock Da House,” and then went on to produce numerous top 20 hits including the club anthems Escrima “Deeper” and “Train of Thought”, and his highest entry to date, Camisra “Let Me Show You”, which entered at No. 5. All this lead to a series of remix projects for artists such as New Order, Stone Roses, Erasure, Human League, K Klass, Wild Child, Energy 52, Duran Duran, Nalin & Kane, Blondie, Bizarre Inc, Keane and The Killlers.
Paul has won Paul has also sold over 1 million compilation albums including Virgin’s The Gallery Modern Masters, Club Nation 1998 and Cream Anthems, as well as winning numerous awards in his career, both from DJ Mag as Best Producer, and from Muzik Mag who awarded him DJ of the year. His enduring popularity has seen him DJ worldwide travelling to the U.S., Canada, Japan, South America, Asia, India, Dubai, South Africa and all over Europe.
Spearheading a radical new wave of Celtic-based dancefloor sounds, Sketch is the brainchild
of drummer and producer Iain Copeland, and the perfect roof-raising act. The line-up features
the stunning Gaelic vocals of Darren Maclean, with fiddler Charlie Stewart and Angus Binnie on
pipes/whistles and Seumas Maclennan/Luc Mcnally on guitar. Self-styled as “traditional music
for the 21st century”, Sketch splice inspired instrumental and vocal work with powerhouse, live
loops, beats and grooves. The band’s freewheeling improvisational prowess offers an exciting
and dynamic live experience, as proven by several incendiary festival performances from 2011
through to 2015.
Sketch – Highland Time review
“Following on from their debut album Shed Life, Highland Time is the new release from
techno-trad fusion group, Sketch. Cultivated by percussionist and programmer Iain Copeland,
Sketch’s sound is rooted firmly in traditional music with branches that extend into the realm of
modern dance music and beats. Featuring a host of Scotland’s finest musical talent. With vocals from Gaelic singer Darren Maclean and a guest appearance by Maeve Mackinnon, the album truly showcases the
vibrancy of Scotland’s traditional music scene. Highland Time isn’t a collision of the old with the new – with traditional sounds of the fiddle and the pipes soaring above a subculture of electro bass and percussive loops – it is a bold statement of the here and the now.”
