About Paul Maddox

Paul has been at the forefront of hard dance consistently since he was dubbed ‘one of clubland’s hottest properties’ earlier in the decade when he was the tender age of 16.  The wizard employs a variety of successful guises, such as Abandon, Azure, O.G.R, Barely Legal (with Guyver) and Olive Grooves, and has collaborated on dozens of all-conquering anthems with the biggest and best in hard music.

Paul has worked with the likes of Lisa Lashes, Anne Savage, Andy Farley, The Tidy Boys, Rob Tissera, Lee Haslam, Steve Hill, Tara Reynolds, Ingo and Jon Rundell.  Maddox enjoyed massive mainstream success and BBC 1FM airplay with his Azure creations, resulting in remix requests from the chart-topping Data and Positiva labels.

The latter released a memorable rework of Ferry Corsten’s ‘Rock Your Body, Rock’ anthem which opened the on-fire youngster up to a whole new audience.  As a result, demand for Paul’s presence in the globe’s most hallowed DJ booths continues to soar, with a frantic work-rate which shows no sign of letting up!
