NEWSLETTER DECEMBER 2013
This last year of 2013 was amazing in so many ways, I don’t even know where to start…
Surely was the best year of my career, I traveled every weekend all around the globe, playing in awesome events, celebrating my passion for electronic music with so many great people.
It was also the start of a new era for my company Naked Lunch, with the huge success of our events in Portugal, and also of the label itself & the podcast that continues to deliver every week, fantastic techno for a growing number of fans. 2014 will bring a few new Naked Lunch side projects, stay tuned
Last, but certainly not least, I had the privilege to make great new friends, meet many others I didn’t see for ages, and enjoy some quality time with my family, which I deeply cherish.
Thank you all for the love & support, and I wish you a great 2014 !!!!
NEWSLETTER JULY / AUGUST 2013
What a wild year I’ve been having so far ! So much work, I even find it hard to have some time to drop some lines here for my fans. But, of course, this is not me complaining, I love what I do, and I’m sure you all know that.
Been traveling a lot, mostly in Europe, with great parties all around, and I also been playing a lot more in my country again, which is also great, since the techno scene was quite dead for many years, and now, finally I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Techno is definitely back in Portugal, and I am also part of it again, with the Naked Lunch nights we’re throwing. For the first 2 events we’ve picked two amazing spots, Gare in Oporto in May with special guest The Advent, and Kremlin in Lisbon with Joey Beltram. Both parties were packed, great atmosphere, sound system and most of all, a happy crowd. The next events will take place in Leiria at Acqua on the 9th of August, with special guests Mike Humphries and Du’Art, and in Lisbon at Mamma Club on the 10th, again with mr. Humphries and also Angy Kore. Looking forward to these ones. In September we will be back to Kremlin in Lisbon, and we are also planning already some label nights outside Portugal too. Stay tuned !
In the studio, well, is the usual nonstop A.Paul style, this year I’ve done already over 30 remixes, 5 Ep’s and maybe a dozen podcast episodes, so I guess you’ll have plenty of music from me to check out. Since I am now a bit more focused on the events we’re making, I’ve decided to take a little break, and I’ve been turning down quite a few requests for remixes, but I should be back later in the year for some more studio action.
Wish you all a great summer, I will also try to enjoy myself… Next stop Nature One in Germany… It will be a blast !!!
NEWSLETTER FEBRUARY / MARCH 2013
This year could not have started better. January was a bit quieter as usual, but I can highlight the gig at Perron in Rotterdam, after a true epic saga to get there. After 2 canceled flights and 14 hours wait at the airport, I managed to fly to Brussels and then go to the party, arriving 10 minutes before the gig.
On the first weekend of February I had my first tour in Colombia, a long trip, filled with good memories. Played a special techouse set in Bogotá, and a full on techno set in Ibagué. Great crowd on both places.
The following weekend I went to Marseille, France to play at a fantastic event called Global Vision, with a massive line up, featuring Klaudia Gawlas, Rebekah, Gary Beck, Planetary Assault Systems, Marc Houle to name a few. Took my wife Sandra with me and was much fun hanging out with Klaudia and Gary. Naked Lunch’s team was very happy with the weekend.
The last one, I was in Amsterdam on Friday, where I had the pleasure of playing for a huge crowd at Chateau Techno, for sure one of the best events I played in the last months. On Saturday I went to Munich, for my second gig at Grinsekatze, where parties are always wild. You can find plenty of videos and photos of this last month on the usual places.
Next stop, New York, USA for a gig at the Sullivan Room, followed by an after-hours on a secret location. Can’t wait for this one! I Will also have a very busy March, with trips to Belgium, France and Italy and more to be confirmed
Always busy in the studio too, either taking care of the labels, recording podcasts, producing originals or remix works. Pretty soon you will find my new originals on labels like Kombination Research, Rhythm Converted, Masters of Disaster, and right now working on remixes for Sven Schaller, Miss Djax & Patrick DSP. There are a lot of my things coming out soon, so stay tuned !!
