Paul Morrell has been a firm fixture on the UK house music scene for over a decade, and may already be familiar to you. He is one of the hardest working and most diverse DJs performing on the club scene today, with an ear for great music and sound technical ability.
Morrell began his DJing career at the young age of 14 in his home town of Coventry, playing a mixture of trance and house, at clubs such as The Planet, Ikon, Crazy Daisy’s and The Foundry. It was at these venues he began to work alongside the club scene DJ’ing ‘A List’ including Tall Paul, Judge Jules and Lisa Lashes.
He soon became a regular face at clubs such as Ministry of Sound (London), Progress (Derby), Judgement Sunday (Ibiza), Passion and Storm (Coalville). He has also performed for brands including Cream, Gatecrasher, Sundissential, Godskitchen and Polysexual. Paul is also responsible for developing the prestigious clubbing brand “Classique”, which has held parties across the UK and Ibiza, and has attracted artists such as Mark Knight, Paul Oakenfold, Shapeshifters, Jaguar Skills, & Boy George.
Recently Paul has performed to capacity crowds at Ministry of Sound (London), and also alongside Katy B, Example, Connor Maynard & Ms Dynamite at Birmingham Pride to crowds in excess of 8,000.
Alongside his career as a DJ and promoter, Paul has also had great success as a producer and remixer.
His track ‘Givin’ it up’ with Pussycat Doll; Kimberly Wyatt was remixed by Grammy Award Winner Stonebridge, and was supported widely in the UK and Europe. Brit Award / Ivor Novello Award winning artist Sonique has worked with Paul on two tracks “What Your Doin'” and “Only You”, and former Sugababes / MKS lead singer Mutya Buena provided the vocal on the No. 2 club chart hit “Give Me Love”. Katherine Ellis, Vicky Jackson, Lonnie Gordon, Coco, Maria Nayler, Lisa Maffia, Aggro Santos and Angie Brown are also some of the key vocalists that Paul has worked with over the past decade in his capacity as a producer and remixer.
Paul remixed the Utah Saints hit single “What Can You Do For Me”, which formed part of the Ministry of Sound re-release package, and charted in the UK at Number 28. That year he was also voted as Best Breakthrough DJ at the annual Gallery / Ministry of Sound Awards in London.
