// CLUB SCENE
Paul Bleasdale began his ascension to DJ royalty in 1989 as a resident DJ of Liverpool’s Baa Bar at only 18 years old. Following the eruption of the dance subculture in the early 90s, Paul’s popularity grew as he played at notable clubs across his native city of Liverpool, leading to the opportunity of a lifetime: in 1992 that Paul was asked to play a new and intimate night by co-founder of iconic club Nation, Darren Hughes.
For the next six years Paul became integral to the colossal rise of the legendary club night Cream, where he regularly provided the soundtrack in the Annexe Room alongside such legendary DJs as Paul Oakenfold, Carl Cox and Sasha. By the mid-90s, Paul was touring the world under the Cream banner while collaborating with techno legend Andy Weatherall and house pioneer Matthew Roberts. By the turn of the millennium he had established a reputation as a globally recognised and exceptionally talented DJ, joining the likes of Danny Rampling, Paul Oakenfold and Seb Fontaine in the annals of dance music history.
As Paul’s career progressed, his acclaim grew and accolades mounted up – he has been included in DJ Mag’s top 100 and been crowned Muzik’s leading resident DJ. It was not long before Bleasdale and Oakenfold would take on the Cream Courtyard Arena to play legendary nights that are still remembered today. As the millennium came and went, and the club closed, Paul continued to tour the world under the Cream brand before taking some time out of the scene to pursue other creative endeavours.
After some six years away from the decks, Paul answered the calling for his return to venues across Liverpool. It wasn’t long before he was a fixture on the UK circuit once again, playing incredible sets at classic events like Creamfields, Golden Dance Fest and Colours in Glasgow. 2016 saw Paul return to production, releasing hotly-anticipated tracks on influential imprint Big Fist and unsurprisingly reaching the top spot in the DJ Trackitdown charts. With new branded tours in the pipeline and dates in the calendar across the world, 2018 will see this house music visionary reinstate his position as a leader of the scene and a globally successful DJ.
