Paul Oja

In the beginning there was an Amiga 500 computer and an unhealthy interest in sampling other people's music. Now, over ten years later, the samples go through an MPC sampler and the variety of influences has increased at least ten times. When starting out, young Paul was into rock and hip hop and by the mid-nineties basically every genre of modern electronic music. Surprisingly enough the first outcome was house music, together with a fellow electronica enthusiast Madis Nestor, they formed a dj-ing and producing powerhouse Ritmos Liquidos. Local hiphop impresario DJ Critikal described the duo's production as Gangsta House. At the same time Paul held on to his hip hop roots with local rap collective Toe Tag and is still a member of the band for over a decade now. Paul's solo material ranges from mellow downtempo tunes to rugged rock or eletro influenced mayhem. Same goes for his DJ sets. You can hear everything from hiphop to rock, from electro to house. He is a resident at Check One Two and Play!! parties in Tallinn. Once a week he can be heard on Raadio 2, show called Programm.
