Paul has always had a passion for music at an early age, but it wasn't until 2001 that he bought himself his first set of decks after coming back inspired and influenced from the sounds of the Miami WMC. Being a keen clubber himself, this led to attendance at all the well known festivals and gigs in the U.K and beyond, so as the years progressed Paul got more and more into modern day dance music.

To date, Paul has performed at some of Scotland's top clubs including the Arches, Gatecrasher @ Room At The Top, Byblos, Sea, Blue, and The Soundhaus, whilst also making his first international appearance's in Ireland, Germany, India, Australia and New Zealand alongside artists such as Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Andy Moor, Rank 1, Ronski Speed, Sied van Riel, Activa and Tom Colontonio to name a few. Paul's sets feature rigorous tune selection which vary from Progressive to uplifting Trance, through to more tougher energetic Trance, whilst always dropping some Techno elements for good measure.

During 2005 to 2009 Paul promoted his own nights with a few friends in Glasgow such as Vibe, Synergy, Platinum and Rehab. With their main aim to offer something different to the Scottish clubbers, this resulted in several Scottish debut's for the likes of John O'Callaghan, Aly & Fila, Menno de Jong, Giuseppe Ottaviani (Live), Stoneface & Terminal, Thomas Bronzwaer, Mat Zo, Chris Liebing, Anderson Noise, Axel Karakasis and Eric Sneo.

As a producer Paul's tracks and remixes can be found under the mighty Dutch Armada stable on imprints such as A State Of Trance, Vandit Digital, Captivating Sounds, Coldharbour Recordings, Aropa Records, S107 and also on UK label's Discover Digital and Infrasonic Recordings. Some of the highlight's include Paul's first track 'Totality' which received big plays from Paul van Dyk at the Winter Music Conference in Miami, 'Seize The Day' was featured on Markus Schulz Top 40 of 2009, 'Deal With It' claimed the No.1 spot on the Trackitdown Top 100 Trance Chart, whilst also having remixed for Armada A-listers Markus Schulz and Dash Berlin. Paul's tracks have gained huge support from the highest Dj elite including air plays on respected radio shows such as ASOT, Vonyc Sessions, Club Life, TATW, Corsten's Countdown, GDJB, and BBC Radio 1. To date they have featured on CD compilatons such as Cream, Godskitchen, Armada & Slinky.
