The Hague's electro-disco master Mr Pauli returns this coming November 1st to Lunar Disko. On both occasions Mr Pauli has played down at Lunar Disko, the Clone and Viewlexx supremo has always blew us away with his live show, and you can expect more of the same from him on his third visit to Lunar Disko!
Mr. Pauli Biog. :
Growing up in the 80's in The Hague saw Mr Pauli aka Ingmar Pauli grow a passion for the Italo disco sound. It is probably rammed in his subconciousness forever due to the constant radio playtime that Italo-Disco got back in the 80's in The Hague.
After learning how to mix, Pauli soon turned his attention towards producing music. It was soon after Dj Overdose bought his first SP-12 that it really emerged to Mr Pauli that music production was all he wanted to do. Encouraged by the very fast producing and releasing of 12"s by Roland Klinkenberg (whom he shared a house with at that time) and because he finally managed to actually finish some songs, and not just fiddle along for days and months with beats and a Roland Juno 106 that by that time had added to his set up.
It was in 1996 that Ingmar Pauli released his first record. After three follow ups, he started working with Dj Overdose again. In 1998 they crowned themselves NOVAMEN, and in 1999 debuted on I-f's Murdercapital records. They last released there fifth EP in 2006 on Viewlexx and with the CBS superhit ' Lies ' released on Viewlexx recently, they are very much still rocking the electro planet!
In 1999 Pauli also met a producer called Geoffrey T, who seemed to share his love for 80's drummachine-funk from the likes of Zapp, Prince, and Cameo etc. They formed a project called Bumper and have bumpy-bassline-vocodered themselves through life ever since. They debuted on the Californian label MDEX in 2004, and are still dropping jams with recent remixes from the Pigna crew of Marco Passarani, Francisco, and Raiders of the Lost Arp.
Around 2002 original Miami bass bending Dj Technician, a friend for close to 20 years, decided to share their passion for Italo with the world, they formed the Hague Cocadisco project Matzo & Pauli and debuted in 2004 on VIEWLEXX. A follow up 12" is on its way....
So in September 2006 the first Mr Pauli EP was released on Viewlexx, thanks to close friend Alden Tyrell who applied some amazing mastering black magic techniques, to convert the tracks onto vinyl. It is also Mr Tyrell who rearranged and updated his track ' Little ' that got released on Clone records under the name Pauli & Tyrell in late 2005. More recently Pauli has had his first full release on Clone Records, Rotterdam with the new-wave EP Jap Fab.
