Paul Boex & Tim Wolff Live At Awakenings Festival 2014
Established DJ, experienced producer, label-boss, event promotor and one half of one of techno’s most exciting collaborations around. A little over a decade after first involving himself with electronic music, Paul Boex is able to check the box next to all of those qualifications. Outspoken, driven and armed with an open mind and critical ear, he has developed a forward-thinking, hands-on approach to music; one he’s keen on sharing with all willing to listen.
Having performed in the past at Awakenings, Soenda, Techno Flash, Planet Rose and his own Mental Evolution, alongside personal inspirations like Jeff Mills, Robert Hood and Regis, Paul has earned his stripes through dedication and hard work. Consequently, a Boex DJ-set is very much like a fine dinner; sophisticated and carefully chosen ingredients arranged under an expert chef’s watchful eye.
The end result a dish both familiar and surprising in taste, never the same, always fulfilling.
Recently Paul joined forces with friend and fellow artist Dave Miller to form Abstract Division. Within seemingly no time they have caught the attention of many an ear and eye, putting out quality music on various labels and delivering an intriguing and deft stage performance at every gig.
Dynamic Reflection, Paul’s own label, saw the light of day in 2008 and has since then evolved into a proper, vision-based, heavyweight imprint. Releasing both own material and work by among others Oscar Mulero, Ben Sims, Jonas Kopp, Shifted, ROD, Reeko, Forward Strategy Group, Norman Nodge, Peter van Hoesen, Samuli Kemppi and Jeroen Search, it has left an unmistakeable mark on the genre itself. What makes Dynamic Reflection stand out in particular is its owner’s determination to maintain a careful balance between well-known producers and upcoming talent, always allowing for an influx of unconventional, innovative music.
Now, with many promising plans scheduled, both in terms of performances and productions, the future is looking bright for Paul, Abstract Division and Dynamic Reflection alike.
Warm up at the legendary Awakenings Festival 2014 in Area Y.
