Paul Henry, DJ/Producer and currently one of the UK's most exciting underground House dj's at present. Influenced by 'Deep House' from US, Electronica, Soulful, Latin and Afro-beat.
At an early age Paul enjoyed house music, especially underground New York/New Jersey, Detroit techno and Chicago house. He took interest through his older sister who lives in USA San Diego California and has done for over 15 years. Because of that connection he kept an eye on what the US was all about, but essentially the US musically.
Following on, Paul regularly tuned in to watch music shows screened on MTV every morning in the early hours, to build up his awareness, knowledge and feel for the genre, watching events which were filmed from various locations across the America playing all the latest house tracks to clubbers and viewers at different venues, and different places across the united states and South america. He also tuned into his local Birmingham radio station what was then Choice FM to listen to all the new and current house tracks being played across the globe. Back then house music had embraced him and gaining further inspiration from local house dj's who were serving house music to the people of Birmingham, was to which from all this and amongst the other factors already mentioned Paul got hooked. It was then natural for him to get involved with house music.
He has carried his love and enthusiasm for deep house right through to this present day in which he now regularly performs across venues and big events across the UK and also now Europe. He will always continue to play what he loves and believes in, that is house music. Paul is known for his track selection being very selective and particular, not just settling on how a track sounds, he needs to feel the track musically.
Performance wise, from bars, clubs, terraces, unique places, random places, to exclusive night spots. As long as there is a professional set up in place he'll enjoy playing. In 2007 to date things went from strength to strength for him, landing bookings at major events with Franck Roger, Kenny Dope, Joey Negro, Sandy Rivera, Andy Ward from Soul central, Chris Woodward, the Audiowhores, Louie Vega, Manoo, Frankie Feliciano, plus many more, with upcoming shows alongside Halo, Kerri Chandler and Jihad Mohammed and also to mention a main room performance at PACHA LONDON
Paul has made his substantial mark well and truly and is looking forward to making an even bigger impact in from now onwards. His AWESOME new track 'Joy' is now available on LAD Records.
