Paulo (Airdrop / Tresor-Berlin)
presented by Humdrum Hong Kong
13 Lyndhurst Terrace
Central, Hong Kong
The next installment of Humdrum Hong Kong‘s free late-night party of cutting edge deep house and techno at Bassment features Berlin‘s Paulo, co-founder of Airdrop Records and A&R Manager of the legendary Tresor-Berlin label.
In the miraculous world of Airdrop Records co-founder Paulo, where DJing, restless label work and partying all morph into one, everything is much more than what it seems. Only here, bad road accidents result in amazing music output and other even more wondrous creations that make this planet a better place to live on.
Growing up in France, Paulo was way too young to get into clubs when he was starting to feel the electronic pulses of a restless generation ready to change the course of things. After having had the pleasure to select and compile jazz and blues records with his late father, he got infected with the electronic virus a couple years later when his older brother returned from the States with anything from early Tribal America records to Gemini’s 1997 “In Neutral” EP.
Crossing the ocean at the age of 18, he bumped into the crazy ass duo Soul Clap and his friend Henry within the first weeks of being there. Before anybody knew what was going on, they were all throwing parties together every Tuesday which were aptly named Airdrop as they were dropping serious electronic sounds onto some clueless students, lifting them into higher spheres of (un-)consciousness.
But while Paulo’s head floats in the air and his body rotates behind the turntables, his feet are steadily rooted in reality, enabling his expert musical knowledge to unfold beyond the short-lived nocturnal moments. His experience as a label-head got some prestigious labels to employ him, getting Paulo to manage the logistics of the !K7 Label Group and currently give a new artistic direction to Tresor Records, two of Berlin’s seminal labels.
