London, United Kingdom
Playing an explosive mix of Jazz, Latin, Soul and contemporary dance music to discerning crowds across the planet, Paul Murphy has been deejaying since the late ‘70s. His musical journey has wound its way through residencies at celebrated London clubs The Wag, The Electric Ballroom (where he founded the now famous Jazz Room), The 100 Club and Hoxton Square’s Blue Note, via performances alongside the likes of Tito Puente & Celia Cruz, Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, Jimmy McGriff and Lonnie Smith.
Somehow, amidst all of this, Paul also found the time to run a successful Clerkenwell record shop and manage Palladin Records (1984 - 1986), overseeing the release of the politically inspired Venceremos, by London based Jazz-Dance collective Working Week. Gilles Peterson once stated, “Paul Murphy found almost every jazz dance classic".
