With 14 hit singles and a debut album already under his belt, it’s another busy year for Producer, Label Owner, Artist & DJ Paul Rudd.
The talented DJ released his aforementioned debut album, ‘The Sound of London’, in 2012 and it listed hits such as ‘X-Me’ (featuring American actress Kelly-Anne Lyons), ‘Egotastic’, ‘More Amore’ (featuring ViVi), ‘Set Me Free’ (featuring 80’s Icon Jaki Graham), ‘Neon Lights’ (with Richard Oliver), ‘Control Me’ and ‘Out of My Mind’.
Since then, the London-born star has gone from strength to strength by releasing a string of Top-5 singles in the Official UK Music Week Club Charts as well as hits in the US Fusion Radio Charts and Top-40 listings in the Club/Dance charts in 17 European countries.
The first of these post-album hits was, ‘Trust In Me’ which featured ‘The Voice of World Dance’, Amanda Wilson. The single went to No. 1 in the US Fusion Radio Charts twice, peaked at No. 6 in the UK Club Charts, No. 9 in the UK Commercial Pop Charts and reached the Top 40 in the European Club/Dance chart in an impressive 17 countries.
Following on from this huge success, Paul remixed for the Freemasons’ ‘Bring It Back’ with a worldwide release on their label Freemaison and then shortly after released his next single, ‘Wake the World Tonight’ with Sam Calver on vocals. In February 2014, the Paul released ‘Searching’ featuring Chloe Mills which reached No. 4 and No. 8 in the Music Week Club and Commercial Pop Charts respectively. The ‘Searching’ music video soon went viral and the track reached the Beat100 World Chart No.3 slot, topped the Beat100 Dance Chart at No. 1 and peaked at No.6 in the US Fusion Charts.
Later in 2014, Paul re-released 80’s Legend Bruce Hornsby’s ‘The Way It Is 2014’. The track marked a momentous occasion as it was the first time the original had been remixed in almost 12 years since 2Pac’s ‘Changes’. Reaching No.4 in the Music Week Club Charts and No.8 in the Commercial Pop Chart, Paul’s remix had huge support from the likes of Danny Lee, DMC Buzz Chart and Cutmore.
The DJ’s next single ‘Night and Day’ was released in September 2014 and had remixes from VIP, Studio7 and David Noakes. Paul had several exciting collaborations released throughout 2015 along with a festive orchestral version of ‘Trust In Me’ (featuring Amanda Wilson) released on iTunes in December 2015.
Now recognised as one of the UK’s most creative remixers and producers, Paul has already remixed a range of popular artists such as: The Black Eyed Peas, David Guetta, Michael Jackson, Alexander O’Neil, Daft Punk and David Grey, to name a few. These remixes and the DJ’s emphasis on fresh melodic tones means his music appeals to fans across a wide range of music genres and this is part of the reason he is always experimenting in the studio with new sounds in order to bring out original tracks.
Having been shortlisted in the final of the ‘One to Watch’ category of MTV’s ‘Brand New for 2012’ competition twice, Paul has also received support from radio stations Kiss and Capital FM as well as industry legends from around the world such as: The Wideboys, Gareth Emery, Dave Pearce, Seb Fontaine, Andi Durrant, Freemasons and Markus Shultz, to name a few.
The Londoner’s global popularity is further highlighted by the fact he has already performed in locations such as Ibiza, Majorca, the French Alps, Greece, Poland, New York and the Dominican Republic.
Paul will continue this tradition and you may see him appear on selected DJ gigs on the international circuit. So far, the confirmed highlights include a string of performances as a special guest for P and O Cruises as well as events planned across the USA.
