Whenever people are touted as an ‘overnight success’, it usually means they’ve got years of hard work behind them. This is certainly true of Paolo Mojo; a DJ since 1991 who has clocked up sets from China to Chelmsford and had a hand in nearly all aspects of the dance music business.. aolo exploded on to the international scene in 2001 to unprecedented acclaim with the release of his double CD mix, Music Is Freedom. Highlights included winning the Muzik magazine Bedlam competition (and a subsequent nomination for ‘Best Bedlam DJ’ award at their annual awards) and being chosen as the winner of Rapture TV’s Homelands Contest. Paolo was also touched to receive personal messages of congratulations from Danny Tenaglia, Carl Cox and Lee Burridge as well as huge underground and internet based support from all over the world. Over the course of the year and now into 2002, Paolo has played at some of the world’s most prestigious venues, including Zouk (Singapore) Fabric (London), Bedrock (London) Pacha (Ibiza), TeXound (Taiwan) and several appearances at The Dome in Tel Aviv. He has toured Asia for DJ Magazine with Tom 'Superchumbo' Stephan and has begun a monthly residency in Ireland for Inertia where he delivers monthly six hour sets that are gathering him a fanatically loyal following. Other work has taken him to South America twice (including an acclaimed NYE 2002 gig in Argentina), Russia, the Netherlands, Scotland, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Taiwan. On the home front, he has delivered memorable sets at amongst others, Union in Leeds, The Gallery at Turnmills and even a special warm up for Lee Burridge and Boxed who asked Paolo to play at the launch party for Lee’s Nu-Breed compilation. Proving that Music is Freedom was not simply a flash in the pan, the follow-up mix was handed to John Digweed, who immediately offered Paolo a guest mix on his Kiss 100 show. The mix was broadcast a week later, raising Paolo’s profile even further, and leading to his debut Bedrock London appearance in December 2001.
