Paul has been on Dance music’s frontline since the release of Leftfield’s debut single ‘Not Forgotten’ in 1989. With partner Neil Barnes, the duo went onto become one of the most globally successful and respected acts in Dance music, along the way shaping styles and creating sounds that have influenced heavily and been borrowed from literally. As a DJ, remixer and producer in his own right, Paul employs the same approach to being different, fresh and exciting as he has throughout his vocation and the success he has enjoyed has come through an absolute understanding and love of the music, the clubs and the people.
When Paul DJ’s, it’s still predominantly a diverse mixture of electronically infused Techno, House and beyond. The linear connection being the all important funk and sonic subversive element. But appreciating so many different types of music, has always made it hard to pinpoint Paul Daley as a particular style DJ (or producer, or remixer…) and is key to his ability at keeping a dance floor and sound system on the edge.
"i'm not a one sided coin,being into a multi faceted pop culture for 45 years creates a lot of different influences, that is why i like playing different sets for different situations, there's too much good music around to be blinkered by one style or sound"
