Paul Ryd3r


Paul started DJing at the age of 13, working with a friend doing mobile discos for weddings, birthdays etc.
It was around this age he met Dr. Fresh, the man who introduced him to the underground Hardcore Techno scene, realising this was what he loved he soon invested in an old set of belt drive turntables and the rest is history - with the guidance of Fresh he learned how to mix and followed in the footsteps of the likes of Ratty, Mickey Finn and Tango through the Jungle scene into Drum n Bass.
In around 1996 another DJ friend of his (hi Rich ;)) introduced him to House music where he was able to infuse this into his part-time mobile DJing which gave a unique perspective for the agency he was working for, which they were able to utilise it to a certain extent.
Whilst having his new found affair with House music he found Trance music out to be enticing, which he was able to fuse with the House quite well - and around this time he found his links with First Leisure - getting many guest nights in the popular clubs around the Midlands, including the Dome, Dome II, Sanctuary, the Travellers and the Emporium.
With a career and following rapidly growing natural progression from Trance music led Paul to Hard House and Hard Trance. He then was drafted into his first internet radio slot on newtechpirates.com where he made many contacts and fans, but after a couple of years of this Paul decided to spend a few months in Germany with his family. When it was time to return to England work commitments brought Paul to London, where he started playing for disfunktionalradio.com where he met a few more contacts - especially a very good friend - Ricky, who was able to help him back into the underground circuit and get started again.
Soon after he met another friend - Maz, who gave him the opportunity to play on her website undergroundexhilaration.co.uk until it's untimely close, since then Paul has performed several guest slots on several radio stations and played weekly on dancetransmission.com on a Wednesday night 8pm to 10pm, amnesia-radio.com on Thursday 9pm to 10pm, Friday 8pm to 10pm and Sunday 8.30 to 10pm, asylum-radio.co.uk on Saturday 2pm to 4pm, last but by no means least jacks-house.com Sunday 10am to midday, after a few changes in life he now runs the 'Tranzportations' concept every Saturday at 7pm GMT on lazerfm.com where he features many guests as they explore the trance genre.
Now Pauls passion sits firmly in Progressive House and Trance where he follows closely in the footsteps of his idol - Sasha!
Paul runs a setup of Technics SL1210 Mk2s with a LED conversion and a Numark mixer, alongside a Pioneer DDJ-T1 running Traktor :)
