DJ Paddy Page was born in Liverpool in 1977. He started disc jockeying when he was 16 years old, after visiting Liverpool Super club, “The Paradox”.
Within the space of a year he soon became resident at The Paradox playing to crowds of up to 3500 people, after having been taught the tricks of the trade by Radio 1/Cream and Circus resident ‘Yousef’.
In the latter part of 1998 he relocated to the Isle of Man where he quickly became resident at Full on Fridays. Having listened to the same type of music on the Island for many years he decided to do something about it. So, in January 2003 he decided to put his own night on called Essential. After 6 months of careful planning he brought his old mate Yousef on board and his Radio 1 colleague Lottie. The night proved a massive success and had several spin off nights including K-Klass with 24 local DJs.
He returned to the UK, in November of the year 2004. He is presently starting up his own label, Essential Dance Records, which he manages. Also, he is creating many tracks, which are starting to be played on major UK radio stations.
Previously DJ Paddy Page has played with many DJs, including DJs Yousef, Lottie, Brandon Block, K-Klass, Alistair Whitehead and JFK.
“Essential is not just about me, it’s about creating a scene and giving many up and coming DJs a chance to play with their idols and also releasing quality music that I would like to hear when I am out”, says DJ Paddy Page.
He describes his music as Funky/Disco/Chicago house. Basically just good house music.
