The end of August is upon us. Pretty soon we will all turn to disco dust. So get up, forget the past, go outside and have a blast… There’s a big weekend of parties coming to Manchester and everyone’s invited.
Here is a lovely Kamila Rymajdo interview that is online now at http://theskinny.co.uk – it’s about me, of course. And Manchester. And Pride.
It’s listen back time! Here is this month’s Reform Radio takeover (broadcast on July 18th) with the amazing Leftwing and Kody at the guest mixer controls and me for the final hour as usual. Enjoy the tunes. Bangers all.
Hey hey hey – following some mind bendingly good takeovers from Mennie (Exploited), Bontan, Doorly, Juliet Sikora and Leftwing and Kody, I’m ratcheting the pressure up a few more notches again with some fresh and funky talent from home and abroad for the next four months too!. Expect everything from disco to tech house and techno from Mighty Mouse, Soul Clap, Chris Massey and Black Girl / White Girl. Tune in and join the party…

Happy #InternationalWomensDay2017 #IWD2017 – I’m proud to showcase my little part in Reform Radio’s 24 hour marathon ‘females rule’ broadcast celebration. #FreeDownload
Here is the show that was broadcast on Gaydio on Friday February 24th when I sat in for Craig Law. The show contains some strong language (not mine I might add) and is as much naughty fun as you can have with your clothes ON. It’s all about house, tech house and a little nu disco so get ready to dance, sweat and sing along.
Created to promote The Lost Disco Festival being held in Tisno, Croatia from August 17-21, our 1st mixtape comes from a full Manchester based (but worldwide known) DJ Paulette who explains fully what into her selections right here:
“I tried to telescope the best parts of a 24 hour bender into an hour mix.” I said …

Noise of Art and Red Gallery, London, are teaming-up to present the first exhibition of photographs, film and artwork documenting the story of French electronic music from the start of the 20th century to the present day, followed by a series of music, film and panel events on the weekends of 17, 24 and 31 March and a closing party on 7 April.
Welcome to my first mix of the year – January’s DJ Paulette takeover for Reform Radio. Broadcast on Tuesday January 31st out of the Reform Radio studios in Old Granada Studios, Manchester, this is my talisman against cold, flu, chest infection and all manner of lurgy.
Emotional journeys always take the longest. By December 2016 my world and the world itself has changed so much that you’d be forgiven (and subsequently so can I – be forgiven) for not recognising it from this year’s perspective. By comparison, the physical journey (practically unaided) from Ibiza to Manchester is nothing more than a simple stroll in Thatch Leach Park.
