Paul Michael Woolford has been working tirelessly for over 20 years both in DJ booths globally, and in a myriad of recording studios, to redefine and reinvent all shapes of dance music. He has has applied his touch to over 200 records, including the work of Sam Smith, Depeche Mode, Chemical Brothers, Lana Del Rey & The Weeknd, Disclosure, Wiley, Jamie XX, London Grammar, Underworld, Krystal Klear & Morgan Geist, as well as influencing flocks of other producers to drop their inhibitions and embrace bolder sounds. Woolford has recorded 5 Essential Mixes for BBC Radio 1, released 3 mix compilations including most recently FabricLive91: Special Request which was a Recommended release by Resident Advisor. As a DJ he tours relentlessly and held down a 9 year residency at Space on Sundays in Ibiza, as well as a 7 year hometown residency at Back To Basics in Leeds in addition to playing pretty much every respected serious venue of note globally. Woolford sites a combination of the raw energy & diversity of the pirate radio airwaves, a lifetime of collecting records and the enlightenment of his art school days as key influences.
Mike Servito is from a very special yet temporary and partially lost fertile crescent of techno / house / party DJing. It was a time when raves were still a fresh idea, almost felt like a revolution, and DJs like Claude Young, D Wynn, Derrick Carter and Mike Huckaby were informing an upcoming generation. If you look directly to that inspired generation you will find the lost threads of Detroit Techno, House and beyond, you will find a group of DJs with insanely deep mixing skills, the ability to rock almost any kind of party with an improvisational approach that is so skilled it makes everything seem so well thought out that even they don’t know where their set will go. But, it will take you there! In the future, this special generation of deep midwest mixers will be remembered and revered as the wizards they are, long after the trendy players have lost their luster.
Detroit never forgot about Mike Servito, his upfront dirty deep and bitchy taste has had an impact on Detroit nightlife for over a decade. From debuting in 1995 at Dat’s Poorboy parties, to being a resident at blackbx and Ghostly’s Untitled (along with Derek Plaslaiko, Tadd Mullinix, Matthew Dear, and Ryan Elliott), contributing to the bizarrely popular, wild and free Dorkwave, and progressing that concept into the forward thinking gay party Sass, to blowing minds at Interdimensional Transmissions’ No Way Back parties, Servito has made his impression. Moving to Brooklyn, Detroit’s loss has been their gain, as he has found a proper home with a residency at The Bunker, and representation by Beyond Booking in North America and Odd Fantastic in Europe.
