Paul Mayson presents his highly anticipated debut album ‘One Life’, fusing a longtime passion for house music with genre-crossing sounds and eclectic collaborations from all over the world. The project is a fresh, open-minded take on dance music with a summery feel.
”The album celebrates life, freedom and diversity and embodies the uplifting message of dance music, enriched by the sounds and colors of the genres that shaped my childhood. To make you feel happy and free. ”
Focus track ‘Automatic‘ blends 90s house music with analog synths and guitars, fitting house & dance playlists. Additionally, the album showcases a more experimental, indie electronic side to Paul’s music making, with tracks such as ‘Tell Me How’, ‘You Get Me High’ and ‘I Want You’. The album features renowned international artists such as Saint Sinner (USA – Grammy Nominated), Jono McCleery (UK – Ninja Tune), Isabel Usher (NL) and Sharlene Hector (UK – Basement Jaxx). The project will be accompanied by a digital art piece by Dutch visual artist Thomas van der Kooi, who brings the album cover to life with his signature artistic style.
The Dutch producer aims to push boundaries within the dance genre: ”The album is a blend of sounds and culture, with house music as its backbone. It was really exciting taking elements from different genres, working with a group of incredible featuring artists that come from very different backgrounds, and bringing all of these sounds and flavors together on one project. There are no rules in music.”
After touring internationally as a club DJ early on, Paul got his start producing and remixing releases for global pop, dance and hip-hop stars, such as Far East Movement, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Yelawolf, Don Diablo, Nathan Sykes and Sam Feldt. He also did the official remix for ‘Deep Down’, the summer hit by Alok, Ella Eyre and Kenny Dope, after which he released ‘Have It All’, his own official rework of Chicago’s iconic song ‘Street Player’.
After he got picked up by MTV and XITE as their breakthrough ‘Push’ and ‘Kickstart’ artist, he is currently making waves with his unique take on dance music. He also gained support from fellow DJs such as Axwell & Ingrosso, David Guetta, Oliver Heldens, Sam Feldt, Don Diablo and Riton.
