ABOUT PAUL NOLAN
ABOUT PAUL NOLAN
You've been listening and dancing to Paul Nolan for many years: you just haven’t realised it.
A seasoned operator within practically every aspect of the music industry, Paul has the rare and unique combination of nearly 20 years experience in the scene, paired with a gathering momentum normally reserved for the freshest of newcomers.
Whether as co - founder of taste - making imprint Chapter 24 Records, an audio engineer to legendary electronic artists, or his work in Artist Development, Paul has spent the last decade leaving his mark on the dance music landscape whilst working stealthily behind the scenes in studios worldwide.
Working across a number of diverse genres, Paul is proving he’s as comfortable producing brooding, downtempo, cinematic cuts as he is for the emotive, intelligent, musically driven house and techno for which both he and Chapter 24 Records have become synonymous with.
Paul’s engineering, production, mixing and mastering skills have found homes on electronic music’s most respected platforms, including Bedrock and Kompakt to name but two.
A skilled collaborator in both live and studio environments, Paul has worked with artists as diverse as Arthur Baker, The Martinez Brothers, JunkieXL, Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation and Darren Emerson.
Most recently, Paul brought his expertise as an engineer, sound designer and programmer for Sasha's critically and commercially acclaimed Late Night Tales album 'Scene Delete’.
Musically, Paul’s influences stem from the avant garde of film and electronic music - those unafraid to push the boundaries of what’s possible whilst still delivering the emotional, physical and spiritual payoff on the dance floor. The DNA of Sasha, John Digweed, Trentemoller, Jon Hopkins, Burial, Cliff Martinez and UNKLE can be heard in every fibre of Paul’s productions and DJ sets.
With a tour diary taking in shows in his newfound home of Los Angeles, London, and Asia before the end of 2016, a label awarded ‘Breakthrough Label Of The Year’ from Beatport, and new productions, collaborations and remixes incoming, Paul Nolan is moving rapidly from out of the shadows, and onto dance music’s front line.
