Celebrating a landmark anniversary, Paul Sawyer has released 30 Years a DJ: a thirty-track collection of original productions and remixes from a truly remarkable career. To coincide with the release, Paul is also set to host a 30 hour radio show on DI.FM, featuring 30 guest DJs including Booka Shade, Paul Oakenfold, Kristina Sky, Dave Seaman and Anthony Pappa.
It’s something of an understatement to say that Paul Sawyer has firmly stamped his mark within the electronic music scene. Over the last three decades he has never stopped working, and now boasts a catalogue that includes originals and remixes on storied labels such as Perfecto Records, Pure Progressive, Black Hole Recordings, Armada, Toolroom and many more, including his own highly respected Krafted Underground imprint. Few artists have such a long career; fewer still operate at such a high level of consistency and creativity.
To celebrate this remarkable milestone in his career, Paul has released his new album 30 Years a A DJ. Compromising 30 tracks from his extensive discography – including three brand new and previously unreleased tracks – it is a comprehensive collection of one of progressive house’s most vital and passionate proponents.
“It’s amazing to think that 30 years has passed since the first year of Djing professionally. I’ve seen so many changes over those three decades, but my passion for the music has never changed. Most recently I’ve managed to land two 6 month residencies on BBC Radio 1, which was just something that I never would have thought would happen when I started all this.
“The album contains music from my label and also from some of the labels that I have been releasing with, as well as new material and an exclusive remix for Paul Oakenfold that he kindly gave permission to be included.” Paul Sawyer
