Jazz is basically the finest music on this planet. The best musicians you can find are playing Jazz and it's the most emotional music that expresses the whole range of feelings we humans deal with every day. I discovered that for myself and Jazz just became something like a good friend that has exactly what I look for in music. Translating some of this into my music and making it accessible to the crowd, to get people to appreciate good music and clever rhythms is my mission ever since. I usually write tracks that combine both, a great deal of soulful jazz but also a heavy drum arrangement paired with a big warm bass. Ideally people who are far away from Jazz end up dancing for 2 hours slowly realising that they had the best time with some real music opposed to listening to the usual generic noise that is popular nowadays."
Says Paul SG, who got a very early start in making music thanks to his parents - his father is an accomplished Fluteplayer.
After participating in „Musical Education for Kids“ at a very young age of four, five years old, his insistent banging of various kitchen utensils resulted in his father purchasing a drum set for his rhythmically inclined son. Paul SG has been on a life long journey in pursuit of beats ever since.
Being heavily influenced by his years as a drummer playing in various different styles of bands from rock, punk and grunge to funk, blues and gospel, including playing the kettle drum in a classical orchestra, this Bielefeld, Germany born producer currently based out of Vienna, Austria has become a true disciple of rhythm. Having learned that all music can touch people depending on the quality and depth, Paul SG brings a perfect mix of sounds and vibes that grabs you at the very core of your soul with each and every tune. Working close with LTJ Bukem & the infamous Goodlooking Records for almost 10 years has taught him a great deal of professional attitude and perfectionism which Paul went on to put into his own label Jazzsticks Recordings.
"Being a resident DJ at London´s Fabric Nightclub for Danny (LTJ Bukem) has changed a lot for me, it shaped my djing and got me out there more“
Paul has been playing all over europe in the past 7 years. Paris, Barcelona, London, Prague, Zuerich, Berlin, Moscow and every other little town in between has been lucky enough to witness one of these special nights with such a unique and extraordinaire flair and atmosphere that only Paul can create.
Working and releasing with over 25 different Record labels in the past 8 years including Good Looking, Liquid V, Innerground, Shogun Audio, Fokuz and many more he has no intentions to stop but decided to concentrate more and nearly exclusive on his own label where he feels home alongside longtime collaborators and friends Decon, Flowrian & Pulsaar. Paul has been busy not only creating original work but also went to do remixes for various labels in and outside of Drum and Bass including officially remixing Bonobo for Tru Thoughts in 2014.
