Armed with a genre-crossing new sound that separates him from other artists, Paul Mayson has catapulted himself into the limelight as one of the most promising and refreshing upcoming electronic acts in dance music worldwide. Being a true tastemaker of the upcoming generation of dance artists, the young producer and multi-instrumentalist is releasing innovative and organic songs on the most influential record labels and platforms in the world (Spinnin’ Records, Hexagon, Armada Music, Proximity).
Bridging the gap between electronic music and pop, he kickstarted his career with the release of ‘Pray’, a collaboration featuring the renowned pop-act Far East Movement. A follow-up came in timely fashion with the release of ‘Want Me’. This new single contained the vocal sample of Aretha Franklin’s classic hit ‘Chain of Fools’ and was also the first officially released rework of that song.
‘My main objective right now is making a statement by writing innovative, genre-crossing songs that sound truely different from what’s out there in dance music. Adding live instruments to my productions is one of the things I do to try and achieve that.’ With his songs reaching millions of streams worldwide and gaining the attention from all the leading blogs, Paul has been busy touring around Europe and Asia.
His new single ‘Paralyzed’, released on Spinnin’ Records and Don Diablo’s imprint Hexagon Records, is a unique blend of polished electronic sounds and pop/rock/indie influences. With the music video reaching an incredible 100.000 youtube views within the first day and the song taking over the internet by storm, the hype surrounding the young prodigy continues to increase.
