PAULETTE 2016 BIOGRAPHY
In a career currently spanning more than two decades and three countries – Paulette has been a resident at some of the biggest and best clubs in the world, with residencies in prestigious clubs including the Hacienda (Manchester), Queen Club, Mix Club, Cocoon (Frankfurt), Ibiza Rocks at Pikes Hotel. She has supported the cream of the dj establishment - from Gilles Peterson, Norman Jay, David Guetta, Laidback Luke, SHM, Afrojack, Bob Sinclar, Didier Sinclair, Fafa Monteco to Duke Dumont, Jaymo & Andy George, Junior Sanchez, Artwork, Derrick Carter, Soul Clap, Moodymanc and Mr Scruff – and shines brightly under her own star.
From radio to club she is a champion of great music – digging deep in the crates for sets of rare grooves, funk and disco to jacking / deep house and techno. Her dynamic and uplifting shows plus her award winning work for record labels, press, TV and radio have earned her international recognition and respect. As capable of entertaining a club with very long 9h or short 30 minute radio mixes, Paulette knows how to flip a room with her blend of vibrant vocals, strong melodies, full phat funk, nasty bass lines and sexy beats. When the music stops, she channels her energies into learning new skills, making music, teaching, public speaking, holding seminars, mentoring and lecturing. Now resident again in her home town, Manchester, Paulette currently has a monthly 2 hour mix show (jacking to deep house, tech house and techno) on Reform Radio and is a resident on rotation and stand in / lead presenter for the weekend 2 hour mix shows, Breakfast Show and The Exchange with Gaydio.
