Celebrating a landmark anniversary, Paul Sawyer will release 30 Years a DJ on 17 February - a 30 track collection of original productions and remixes from his career. To coincide with the release, he is also set to host a 30 hour radio show on DI.FM, featuring 30 guest DJs including Booka Shade, Paul Oakenfold, Kristina Sky, Dave Seaman and Anthony Pappa.
Over the last three decades Paul has never stopped working, and now boasts a catalogue that includes originals and remixes on labels such as Perfecto Records, Pure Progressive, Black Hole Recordings, Armada, Toolroom and many more, including his own Krafted Underground imprint.
Paul Sawyer: “It’s amazing to think that 30 years has passed since the first year of Djing professionally. I’ve seen so many changes over those three decades, but my passion for the music has never changed. Most recently I’ve managed to land two six month residencies on BBC Radio 1, which was just something that I never would have thought would happen when I started all this.
“The album contains music from my label and also from some of the labels that I have been releasing with, as well as new material and an exclusive remix for Paul Oakenfold that he kindly gave permission to be included.”
In addition to the Paul Oakenfold remix and two other new productions, notable tracks include Paul’s rework of 90s’ hit ‘Perfect Motion’ by Sunscreen, his remix of ‘I Want You Here’ featuring Thea Riley put out by Solarstone on his Pure Trance label, and his recent release on Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto Records ‘Waiting All My Life’ featuring Ana Be, which was on rotation on BBC Music Introducing during the summer of 2021.
