Returning to DJing after a 15 year hiatus, Paul Helyer is back and playing dark Techno and Tech House as well as producing Techno under the guise of Hels.Yeah.
Paul was a youngster at the beginning of the rave scene and used to go to the In-Ter-Dance events at the legendary Sterns as a teenager. He bought some Technics 1210s in the mid 90s when he began playing House and Garage. He soon moved on to the Hard House scene because of the relentless energy of the music and the ferocity of the soundscapes.
In the early 00s Paul left the club scene and started a web design business; started listening to music that was not dance music; raced a few bicycles; and then in September 2017 he ended up in Ibiza for his first time one weekend. A night in Resistance at Privilege, then another in Cocoon at Amnesia and he fell back in love with the scene like he’d never left it. He got his decks and vinyl out of storage the day he got home and got back into mixing again.
While searching for new music online and coming to terms with playing digital music - for the first time - instead of vinyl, he decided to try and make some of the sounds he had in his head.
Now a year in, he has two EP’s – ‘Dark Vessels EP‘ with ‘Untiled‘ and ‘Incmplt‘ on Ghara Records and coming in November, ‘No Good EP‘ with ‘Round Hole‘ and ‘Square Peg‘ on Feel Decimal Black as well as two further releases in the pipeline. He has played guest sets on A Darker Wave (Radio Flintshire), Invasions (FNOOB Techno) and Hamm After Dark (Soundwave Radio) and now two weekly radio shows on Trickstar Radio (Brighton) and The Fort Radio (Portsmouth).
