It’s such a massive boost when someone you love, respect and look up to as a maverick and a game changer says nice things about you. This is what Luke Unabomber had to say that brought the sun out on a very moody day.

Trump is coming to London in December for the NATO Heads of State summit, and on Tuesday 3rd December the Queen will be hosting a reception for him at Buckingham Palace. R3 Soundsystem will be taking to the streets that evening, to protest against the far-right politics of The Tories, Trump and Farage. RESIST. REJECT. REVOLT.
In Gabriel Szatan's own words: And it’s a testament to Mancunian hardiness that hundreds brave the arctic conditions to cavort to local hero DJ Paulette doling out fruity house numbers on an alfresco terrace.
Eleven months into the year and there is no sign of letting up for the Paulette Takeover on Reform Radio. For November (Movember) I invited my first male guest in months ... Mr James Curd ... to take the controls for the first hour and here's how it went down.

In the words of Gilles Peterson: blast from the past... with @dj_paulette1 and @normanjaymbe back in 98 on the eve of a short lived but tremendous residency we all held together in the Eve Club on Regent Street... the thought of clubbing in the West End now feels like a bygone age

You will be able to check out my favourite album by a female artist in the new @ClassicAlbumSundays book #classicalbumsbywomen - available in all good book stores, online outlets and through Urban Outfitters from October. I won't tell you which album I have chosen - a girl has got to have some mystery right? ... but I can tell you…

Yes it's that time again - it's the last Bank Holiday of the year (so we all get a long break just when we needed it), the sun is most definitely OUT and everything and everywhere in Manchester is draped, painted, themed and chimes with the clarion call of Gay Pride. This is not a drill - we're here, we're…
Oh, oh ... 😲 it was time to ‘get up offa ya seat and repeat’ for sure!! This is how I came to slay and rocked the party 🎉 on the Southbank when I closed the @nationaltheatre River Stage on Saturday August 3rd 2019.
It's time to roll up, roll up, dig deep, bed in and get down with your bad sel.ves on Friday August the 9th, as Paulette Does Techno at the cool AF Psychedelic Discotech session at The Carlton Club (Whalley Range).

Too excited to type any more...

My photo set status from Facebook goes a little way to recapturing the magic that was Bluedot. La Discotheque was LIT LIT LIT. I loved every minute of it.

SWEET HARMONY / RAVE TODAY opens at the Saatchi Gallery on Friday 12th of July. My interview in the accompanying coffee table book is illustrated by the works of four of my favourite photographers Lee Baxter, Daniel Newman, Lou Rhodes and Andrew Aitch. Who’d have thought those four pictures would find their way to the #SaatchiGallery, eh?
I spoke to Resident Advisor's rapier sharp interviewer Martha Pazienti Caidan about life, the world, the universe, dj'ing, the music industry, equality, diversity and talking to slugs. It's a 90 minute listen that you can download and listen to on Itunes and add to your Spotify collection too. I can't tell a lie, this is very much a dj #goals…
