About

LOVED UP - Summer Party 2024

Saturday 27th July sees the return of LOVED UP @ The Golden Lion in Todmorden with a packed lineup!

We welcome father and son duo Paul & Ben Taylor for an extra special back2back set full of house and classic anthems as they roll back the clock to the good old days!

Paul has amassed an army of loyal Retro followers over the years throughout the Calder Valley with his long standing Retro nights at the Tube in Halifax being the focal point of the month for clubbers back in the day!

With that in mind we cannot wait to welcome both Paul & Ben aka “The EnterTaylors” down to Todmorden in this intimate setting for what promises to be another sellout night!

Support coming from as always Halifax’s finest Pete Monsoon & Zac Greenwood along with another special guest Maria Shenton who has been making massive moves over the last 12 months!

Get ready for a night of non stop tunes as we turn up the heat and dance into the night! 🎶


Paul Taylor 

A professional DJ since the mid 70’s, Paul has become an international club 
legend with his internationally renowned brand Retro which he created in 1989. 

Moving through the decades since then Paul has built up a reputation as the Dj who is passionate about his music - knowing exactly what the people want and getting the all-important dance floors busy. 

His philosophy to keep close to his audience has been an unequivocal success. 

Paul was the creator of the dance outfit Loveland in the early 90’s achieving 
four top thirty hits in the nationals and dance music record of the year in 1994 
with the seminal dance floor anthem "Let the music lift you up". 

In 2010 Paul and his music Partner Mark Hadfield aka Rox & Taylor received huge critical acclaim for the remix of the Red Hot Chilli peppers track ‘ Other side’. Paul also ran Manchester's Eastern Bloc records during the 90s releasing over 30 tracks 
to critical acclaim.

Having released numerous of his self-penned Retro CD compilation albums 
throughout the 90s in the UK, Paul's Retro residency in Pacha Ibiza which 
lasted 3 seasons from 2008 sparked the release of the first Pacha Classics 
album which became a huge success on a worldwide scale and remains 
historically one of the greatest House Music albums released on the Pacha 
label.

Paul remains as passionate today as he was as a young lad playing soul, jazz 
funk and Motown in his first residency at Angels in Burnley Lancashire way 
back in those hazy days and nights of the 70s. Now in his 60s he remains 
totally focused on just how important music is to everyone's lives.

Much has been written about this enigma of a man who developed from a teen DJ on the decks in Burnley to an internationally recognised icon.

“After 40 odd years I’m still here doing it because I love it – music is the celebration of my soul and that is going nowhere”.

Ben Taylor

Ben Taylor’s professional DJ career kicked off in the club scene way back in the late 90's. Bens versatility and understanding of house music in many delightful forms is crystal clear, and his ability to know what makes a dance floor tick has set him apart.

Performing at some of the best clubs across the globe; Tall Trees, Pacha, Sankeys, The Empire, Warehouse Project, Plug Shefield and Eden to name but a few, and supporting world class DJ’s such as The Shapeshifters, MYNC project, Tom Novy, Graham Park, Jeremy Healy, Alistair Whitehead and of course his father Paul Taylor, DJ Ben Taylor has certainly imprinted his name firmly on the clubbing scene.

Pete Monsoon

Yorkshire 'Pete Monsoon' followed his dream of becoming a DJ from the age of 10...a dream that would see him go onto perform around the world. Playing 7inch singles in his bedroom on a basic record deck with a built in speaker, it was when his neighbour gave him their record deck of the same make, he first started playing records over two decks.

After a couple of years of obsessing over DJ’ing, Breakdancing, Rapping & Graffiti (aged just 14), Pete upgraded his equipment to a system with turntables that cost £50 - which he paid for weekly, with his £5 pocket money. Soon after, Pete was trying to copy the scratching sounds and techniques he had heard, from records such as Herby Hancock’s ‘Rocket’, Arthur Bakers ‘Breakers Revenge’, and his home town legend ‘3 Jaze’ - who’s Mixtapes were a true inspiration to a young Pete.

Pete's first big break came when he was 17, in June 1990, when his friend set up his own Rave night in Huddersfield called Forbidden Zone @ Venn Street. He was added to the flyer under his Graffiti / Tag name at the time ‘Creator’ and played alongside DJ’s Paul Oakenfold, Paul Trouble Anderson, Chad Jackson and T.O.N.Y (from the Hacienda). 

From this successful night, Pete went onto DJ all over the UK and around the world, as well as doing shows on local, pirate, legal and online radio stations.

An open-minded music lover and a versatile DJ, Pete has played a vast selection of musical styles in his career, from Trance, Techno, Funk, Hip Hop; to UK, Italian, Funky, Piano and Electro House.

Pete has been producing and remixing records since 1991, with labels such as Fulcrum, Hamster and FFRR records.
A lover of creating bootleg mash-ups with an Old Skool feel, Pete has gone on to remix releases for Ministry of Sound, Clubland, Data and All Around the World records to name a few.

Zac Greenwood

LOVED UP head honcho… in the words of DJ Butty founder and creator of oldskoolanthemz.com “2002 and a fresh faced 16 year old Zac Greenwood aka oldskoolkidder rocked up to
OSA asking if someone would stick an old skool event on near him. He ended up doing it himself and completely smashed it out the park”

18 years later and still going strong, Zac has a passion for oldskool and all things uplifting house, he started djing in 2005 and has gone on to play alongside the likes of Nipper, Welly, Stu Allan, Rob Tissera, Paul Taylor, Bowa, Waddicker, Absolute, K-Klass, XTC, Andy Pendle, Rob Thurston, Pete Monsoon, Barrie Jay, Simon Foresteiro, Ben Taylor, Butty & Recca, Ricky Isted and many more.

Maria Shenton

Maria is a young, uber talented next generation DJ hailing from just over the border in Calderdale. She is a frighteningly accomplished young DJ with exceptional taste and knowledge that exceeds her years. Maria has already played several gigs over in Calderdale most notably at the Golden Lion in Tod amongst others creating quite the “over yonder”.

Come and see what the fuss is about for yourself and help to support the next generation of local DJ talent.
