DJ Paulo (Los Angeles)
Club goers flock to events around the world to experience the seductive beats and music of DJ PAULO-a truly international DJ originally from Portugal, raised in the US, Paris and London and who now lives in Los Angeles. His unique and distinctive tribal sound has planted him firmly amongst the ranks of top DJs, headlining at some of the world’s largest and most prestigious clubs, circuit events and festivals. Some of these include Pacha and Black Party in NYC, The Week in Rio & Sao Paulo, Black & Blue and Stereo in Montreal, Karmabeat Mexico, Ageha Japan, Space Miami, Circuit in Barcelona, The Pines Party on Fire Island, White Party Palm Springs, Winter Party Miami, Song Kran Bangkok, you name it, PAULO has probably headlined it. His remarkable versatility enables him to play from smaller venues as well as life-size circuit events-gay, straight, primetime or after-hours he can do it all.
PAULO’s impressive reputation has landed him esteemed primary residencies at some of the best clubs in the country (Viva 48 & XL in NYC & Peter Rauhofer’s “Work” Parties amongst others). His demand extends into remixing, producing official remixes (many times reaching #1 on Billboard) for world-renowned recording artists like Madonna, Justin Bieber, Christina Aguilera, Cher, Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, Beyonce, and Chaka Kahn (just to name a few). His podcasts, which include his personal, remixes and mash-ups, are some of the most sought after podcasts on the web, regularly reaching #1 on sites such as Podomatic, Mixcloud, & Hearthis.at. It’s no surprise his trophy cabinet even includes the “Best DJ/Producer/Remixer” honor, presented at the 6th Annual JustCircuit Awards.
PAULO’s passion for music is something he cannot help but share. He helped mentor Canadian DJ Alain Jackinsky. Together, they’ve collaborated in the studio and produced new favorites such as “Chicky Boom!”, Justin Bieber’s “As Long as You Love Me” & Madonna’s “Living for Love”. His beloved mix breed terrier known as Lucy inspired him to produce the brand name “TRIBAL BITCH”. With over 20 years in the business, PAULO keeps evolving, always keeping his sound “unique”.
