After picking up the DJ bug while working in a record shop in the early 90's, Paddy Freeform has gone on to forge a career taking in several high profile residencies and playing at just about every open minded party in the North East of England, as well as promoting a good few of them...This resulted in DJ appearances and support slots alongside a whole list of great djs, including Carl Craig, Zed Bias, Bugz in the attic, The Unabombers, Gilles Peterson, 4 hero, DJ Bone and many more
