Southsea Soul Club
Hotel Room Hosted by ABC presents w/ Partner Music
Concrete Music & POW are Honored to be joined by House Music Royalty, Paul Johnson.
Paul Johnson is often copied but has never have been equaled, because Paul Johnson is …well…he is PAUL JOHNSON.
There is reason for him to be named as the very first artist in the track “Teachers” by Daft Punk.
Paul Johnson was born and raised on the south side of Chicago, the birthplace of house music where he started DJing in the mid-80s and started producing in 1990. He produced and released over 445 E.P’s for some of the most consistent labels like Dance Mania, Cajual, Relief, Dusttraxx, Peacefrog and Moody Recordings which sold over 3.5 million copies of his 1999’s hit record ‘Get Get Down’ worldwide.
His remix work and collaborations with Destiny’s Child, Jon B, Steve “Silk” Hurley, DJ Skip, Ce Ce Peniston, Daft Punk, DJ Sneak, K-Alexi, Stacy Kidd, Joey Beltram, Green Velvet, Armando and Ron Trent made its way into all the big jocks boxes and remain there to this day.
Supporting Paul Johnson we have Concrete’s own Alex Virgo. Little known to many, dwelling only in the ranks of private Soundcloud playlists, Alex Virgo is a diamond coming out of the rough. Once Patrick Topping heard some of Virgo’s records he played six of them on the same night. Alex is accumulating support by the day, including heavyweights such as Eats Everything who has been supporting some of his belters on his BBC Radio One show.
