Paolo Mojo is now established as an acknowledged leading light on the underground house music scene. Already a highly respected DJ, his relentless production schedule throughout 2008 has sky rocketed him into the production premier league.
2008 saw him a virtual ever present on BBC’s Radio One Essential Selection / Mix with 7 singles on his Oosh label getting constant radio airplay. An Essential New Tune for ‘Nightlaw’ in February was followed by one of the most well received Essential Mixes of the year in August, and Paolo was name checked as one of Pete Tong’s hottest producers of the year.
Its easy to see why, his stylish, turbo charged tech house sound has been one of the success stories of 2008… singles such as Brooksong, The Dancer, Interstellar, Home, Sirena, Nightlaw and Ron Hardy Said (in collaboration with Jim Rivers) have led people to start talking about the Paolo Mojo ‘sound’.
Into 2009 and original tracks such as 'Deux Ex Machina', 'Que Loucura De Som' and the massive 'Lauda' have cemented his standing while simultaneously pushing the boundaries of his sound.
His remixing skills are now in high demand; his take on Moonface 'U Get So Give' was the highest selling remix in the recent high profile Bedrock 10 release, a triple album containing classic reworks from the likes of Steve Lawler, Tom Middleton and Guy Gerber. Other remixes for Factomania, Little Mountain, Curfew Nervous, Postiva and Ego Records have confirmed his name as one of the most in demand remixers of the moment.
Despite the frantic pace in the studio he's constantly touring the globe. A true ‘international’, there are not many countries that haven’t had a touch of the Mojo magic these days. He's earned himself a formidable global fan base thanks to his hectic schedule… from London to LA, Sao Paulo to Sydney, Toronto to Tokyo… Paolo has graced the decks of the worlds finest clubs.
This is no overnight success story either. Go back into the last few years and productions such as 2007's JMJ (Pete Tong's 'tune of the summer at Pure Pacha'), the legendary 1983 - remixed by his close friend Eric Prydz into one of the anthems of 2006 - or his highly sought after remixes for the likes for Pryda, NRK, and Factomania have all done the damage.
Described by IDJ as a master of the mix cd, you need look no further than his award winning Balance 009 for EQ Recordings, or his Renaissance Digital 001 for evidence of the man’s ability to build a set.
With an astonishing work ethic in the studio and his endless special re-edits, he's an innovative DJ whose innovative programming combines with enviable technical ability to make him one of the most popular fixtures on the underground touring scene.
