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…
Welcome to the second Paulette Takeover in August - oh the joy of five week months :-D This show features the incomparable skills of Mr Shoom himself - Danny Rampling - one of the founding fathers of UK rave and a cornerstone of the international house music scene.

Here is the listen back to my first live show from the brand spanking new Reform Radio studios in Manchester. This month I was honoured with the patronage of a real life MBE - Norman Jay MBE. He's probably the first person with an MBE to be heard on the station and a definite first for my Takeover Shows. Enjoy.

I am always getting stopped in the street by people who were at the Black Coffee party at Mint Lounge in Manchester. I smashed the party that night and this is the closing set that did the damage (I played an equally well received, marvellous and eclectic opening set that sadly wasn't recorded). I topped and tailed the headliners –…

Last week and last playlist from #Homebird at The Lowry via Spotify - it's 2016 - The Next Decade. There's music that I love that has nothing to do with house or techno. And then there's house and techno... and the future? Who knows. Homebird has flown the coop.

INCOMING ... #onair #radio #studio whilst the Reform Radio studio is in uproar and the big move from Old Granada Studios is afoot - you still have your trusty DJ Paulette #takeover to get you through your #Tuesday - and every and any other afternoon.

Sobs. Only six more sleeps to the end of my HOMEBIRD exhibition at The Lowry. How do I feel about this? Well, it's been the most incredible journey from start to finish. I've had the honour of working alongside Michael Simpson (Director of Visual Arts) and Laura Biddle (Galleries Co-ordinator), and the pleasure absolute of collaborating with a top flight design…

HOMEBIRD: 2006 - 2016 is about the time when I debuted fully in Paris - I had started a weekly residency at Mix Club in October 2005 so by 2006, every Friday and some Saturdays Paris was mine. My residency at Queen Club started in 2010. I eventually resigned from Queen Club and Radio FG and moved to Ibiza in…

My love of soaring, spiritual voices, crisp production and great song writing is beautifully illustrated here in HOMEBIRD 1986 - 1996 with a playlist including The Pet Shop Boys, Art of Noise, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Prince, Malcolm McLaren, Nirvana, SNAP, Mariah Carey, Paul Simon, Massive Attack, D*Note, Galliano, Jamiroquai, Sounds of Blackness.
DJ Paulette - Homebird: Edits 03 has a musical heart. This is part one of a six part series that you will find at the centre of the maze. It is live on Spotify as of today and will continue to live when the exhibition is finished. Maybe you will hear something you recognise? Maybe it will spur a memory?…

Yowsers Wowsers! Big love to one of THE original Sheroes The Black Madonna for dropping Massey & Paulette - Sheroes on her most recent BBC Radio 1 Residency show!

Welcome to 'Sheroes' the final cut. It's a huge musical salute & fist bump to all the 'Sheroes' mentioned here, an answer back and antidote to the female free zone aka Daft Punk's 'Teachers' and a nod and hug to those that we love but couldn't quite fit into the final cut! You are all an inspiration.

Here's a little taste of the flip side of our acid house squelch and disco experience. 'Violins And Things' is dedicated to a shimmery sunglasses wearing Sebastian Manox, to soaring strings, Meat Free T-Shirts, to Social Services signage and last but not least, all about love for Afield graphic shirtage.

If my selection of actual, tried and tested, ‘wake up guaranteed’ alarm calls doesn’t make you leap out of bed, into the shower, leap out of the shower, into your clothes whilst dancing around your bedroom in your knickers and lip-synching into your hairbrush then you need defibrillating now.

I got into the St Patrick's Day spirit by sitting in for Craig Law again on the drive time show on Gaydio. You get lots of housey, techy, uplifting, cheeky, banging, urban new music for your dollar with one or two detours around the 'wtf was that' Shazam-free zone, rabbit hole.
