Following last months excellent 1st Birthday celebrations with Craig Richards (which was probably the best party yet!!) Triptic are very proud to present... PAUL DALEY.
Paul is one half of seminal British group Leftfield and has just returned from a huge summer residency in Ibiza. This is set to be a very special night and we here at Triptic are excited to hear what Paul has in store for us.
For guaranteed entry to this very special event, advance tickets are available from Bristol Ticket Shop, Khoi and Rooted records at the price of £6. Get them soon to avoid disappointment!
PAUL DALEY has been on Dance music’s frontline since the release of Leftfield’s Debut single ‘Not Forgotten’ in 1989. With partner Neil Barnes, the duo went onto become one of the most globally successful and respected acts in Dance music, along the way shaping styles and creating sounds that have influenced heavily and been borrowed from literally. As a DJ, remixer and producer in his own right, Paul employs the same approach to being different, fresh and exciting as he has throughout his vocation and the success he has enjoyed has come through an absolute understanding of the music, the clubs and the people.
Since Leftfield parted ways in 2001, Paul has been in demand as a remixer and producer in his own right, turning out killer dance floor ammunition for Slam (‘Alien Radio’), Dub Pistols (‘Six Million Ways’) and Bolz Bolz (‘Take A Walk’ - which went on to be synched to a Smirnoff commercial), plus the sunset-tinted ‘Adios Ayer‘ for long-time friend Jose Padilla (Café Del Mar) and a rework of Massive Attack’s ‘Butterfly Caught’. In 2004 he produced a single for the curious alliance of funk renegade Afrika Bambaata and robo-synth-pop pioneer Gary Numan, who teamed up on a new version of Numan’s 1979 track ‘Metal’, resulting in an electro floor-curler with a commanding presence.
For the past couple of years, he’s been locked away in his studio writing his first solo album, all those years of diverse musical infusion being drawn upon. “With DJ’ing and making music I don’t ever want it to be a one-dimensional thing.” When Paul DJ’s nowadays, it’s still predominantly a diverse mixture of electronically infused Techno, Electro and beyond. The linear connection being the all important funk and sonic subversive element. But appreciating so many different types of music, has always made it hard to pinpoint Paul Daley as a particular style DJ (or producer, or remixer…) and is key to his ability at keeping a dancefloor on the edge.
Paul understands and encourages new young music from underground labels from all over the world, anyone who comes to listen to a set should not expect to hear some kind of 90’s revival, his sets and records represent an energy perhaps of someone half his age with twice as much musical experience. Anyone fortunate to witness his summer residency sets at ibiza’s uber cool country club “Underground” over the last 5 years bears witness to this. Paul is very choosy with UK gigs these days so if you get the chance check him out at Triptic in November!
