Paul Newhouse has grown to become an international DJ in a relatively short time span. His interest in the DJ world began when he moved from his hometown of Dublin to live in Germany at the early age of 17 in 1991. Paul was blown away by their underground dance scene and spent many hours studying DJ's such as Paul Van Dyk, Roland, Tanith and Moby. The two-year experience in Germany led him to purchase his first set of decks in 1993 at the age of 21.
1994 Paul proceeded to setup his own music magazine; Zone Magazine, his intention was to publish a dance music magazine in Ireland, but at the time, after a year working on the project, “dance” music was a grey area for a lot of people, and securing finance for this was very difficult, so the project had to stop.
In 1995 Paul secured his first ever gig at "The Asylum", one of Dublin's first and most famous underground clubs, after previously just playing at private parties. Playing at "The Asylum", on the top floor, for approximately 6 months before progressing to Radio where he secured a spot on Kiss FM in 1997. By 1998 Paul was playing a regular two slots a week for a show called "The Classic Collection" and "The Sunday Session", both on Kiss FM.
During this time Paul progressed his knowledge in other areas also and worked part-time for an Irish Dance Magazine called "Uproar" where he published photographs and wrote articles about the current dance scene. Also developing his knowledge in music production and attended a Dance Music Business Program, and getting his Advanced Diploma in Music Tech., which has provided him with the all round experience and skills required to play at international level, and to equip himself for the label director job he does now.Since moving home to Dublin in May 2008, Paul has setup Redbox Records as a dance label and has had big support from people involved in the dance music scene all over the world. 2011 has been a great year for Paul, working hard every day on his label, and pushing his sound to Ireland, UK and the rest of the world through his weekly radio shows, and playing in Ireland, UK and several European dates, things are looking good for the future for Paul.
This fine young talent comes highly recommended with a natural feel for pleasing the crowd and an ability that's increasingly recognized, with his smooth mix style, and his love to work the crowd on long DJ sets.During Paul's' time in Ireland and the UK, he has built up a following and has found several gigs locally, nationally, and internationally.

Leo R is well known for his eclectic energetic sets that always get the dance floor moving. He likes to play a wide variety of music, mainly bouncing between Techno and Tech house, but is always open to new sounds and styles. This is represented in his productions and sets which vary from raw Techno to Minimal to more ambient melodic sounds and everything else in between.
In 2010 he turned his hand to music making and quickly got to grips with production.He got his first track signed late 2010 and hasn’t looked back since. In 2011 he made some serious progress with tracks signed to Minicoffee Records, Oktant, Chibar, Level One, Soundwaves,5Tonne, Kill Beat and Echo Deluxe.
