Everything from Blackjazz Records to Casablanca," Paolo enthuses. "I learnt so much about black music, funk, jazz, boogaloo... And from there I started to explore new music from record dealers in London and New York.” Journalist, producer and DJ, Paolo is a DMC mixing championships alumnus whose earliest spinning experiences came from cruise ship residencies around the Med. When he opened up his huge vinyl library for sampling, The Superpaolo Band took their first steps into music production, initially releasing for esteemed Italian imprints like Irma Records. "But after a few years of producing, you realize that sampling gets a bit limiting," Paolo adds, "as you become more aware of what music really is and what the people you've sampled have done to get there." So after relocating to London in the late '90s, SuperPaolo increasingly concentrated on creating tracks from scratch, and driven by the fresh approach and sizzling energy of their new productions, he and his best friend Jurij quickly came to the attention of Tim 'Love' Lee's Tummy Touch label, where a shared appreciation of party classics, fried fun and hedonism led to a working relationship. Four blinding 12"s and Tutto Matto's globally acclaimed debut album, ‘Funkulo’, followed, and two years of pressure, pleasure and intensive production later, album two, 'Hot Spot', did its best to burn up the floors and airwaves. Despite SuperPaolo undisputed success, he has decided to establish his own label: Discomilk, for which he has produced his first solo album: SuperPaolo: Planet Paolo; the album was a success in the true world of nu disco lovers and Superpaolo is now putting out his new album called 'Funky Scanner'.
