Raised in Manchester studying at Chethams School of Music, Paleman (now finishing a degree in jazz drums in London) has rapidly risen through the ranks since emerging in 2012 to become one of the most respected DJs and producers coming from within the UKs vibrant scene. With multiple releases on Loefah’s SWAMP 81 label, collaborations with UK mercury prize jazz nominees Polar Bear and a monthly show on Rinse FM , Paleman seems to be on an ever increasing upwards curve. With his tunes being spun by by the likes of Boddika, Skream, Loefah, Jackmaster and more, Paleman has a knack for percussive, minimal bass driven music. With studies in classical music and jazz his drumming skills and influences take note from all four corners of the musical world, as well as the ever changing sub bass driven sound from UK. Paleman seems to constantly be pushing boundaries in both his DJ sets and productions and soon will be utilising his jazz drumming skills to bring an innovative live show to the stage in the coming year.
