MOAI Platform Europe welcomes Paolo Tossio

MOAI Platform Europe welcomes Paolo Tossio

 

PaoloTossio began his career as a DJ in Italy, in his early teens and after moving to London in the late nineties, he continued to push the boundaries with his unique DJ style, gigging throughout the UK and around Europe spreading his positive musical vibes to the world.

As his journey continued, he opened his eyes to production, with some studio time to see if he could produce music to feed his crowd. Working hard and late into the nights he came up with an idea and finally released his first Album “The Other Side of Darkness”

Things were moving fast & furious for DJ Peace (His first DJ name) so he decided to write another Album called “Re-Birth” a fusion of Trance & Progressive Electronic Music.

Starting to produce opened up the requirements to work deeper into the production, design, promotion, and selling of his work, and of course managing the brands of Paolo Tossio.

The 3rd Album had now arrived “Spaced Out Infinity Sounds”

This took on a new form of pure Electronic fusion music, a new style that’s not easy to explain on paper, as Paolo delved into making changes on his music style and productions, he realized the need to be different and have a unique sound to give to the fans, something they hadn’t heard before.

Later Paolo became a resident DJ for Antiworld, Atomic Energy and Special Guest for very well-known promotions like, Supersexy, Pendragon and many more, reaching stages like SE1, The Drome, Tyson Street, The Glasshouse, Angel, The Scala & the biggest of his career, Alexander Palace.

Soon his name was out there and Recoverworld were looking for him and in no time he released his first Vinyl Record with this respected Record Label.

It’s debut with Recoverworld Records “The Force” sold out 2,000 copies in a very short space of time, and on a mainstream high street name like HMV and other shops open at this time.

The DJ Peace brand was really picking up, going from strength to strength, going into places that Paolo was only dreaming about years earlier and now, was his reality.

Paolo Tossio under the brand DJ Peace was asked to go and showcase his skills in places like Plasa at Earls Court Music Conference playing along side and Back to Back with Tiesto, on stages like CyberDog in Camden, The Fridge and many other clubs, playing with DJs from Tidy London & Nukleuz, K90, Signum, Infected Mushroom, Astrix, Chris Liebing and many others.

Media coverage during these times was in print with Muzik Magazine, Ministry of Sound Mag & many other DJ magazines starting to recognize Paolo Tossio as a Pro DJ and Producer breaking boundaries and doors down, to open the road to his success in the music business.

From 2006, Paolo Tossio took the decision to have a break and look after his 2 sons…

10 years later; Paolo had the brilliant idea to start DJ and producing music again, he went and had a chat with his wife and two boys, and they all encouraged him to follow his dream.

So as “Paolo Tossio”, his new brand, came back onto the music scene with the hunger to succeed like he did years before, but this time it’s a totally different scene, totally different game, the music had evolved, people had changed, music had become digital, the world had become digital. Sound evolves every second, so for Paolo it was a totally new world.

Paolo didn’t despair and embraced the new world. He started to adapt old with new, analog with digital, vinyl with CDs and so on, a tough transition but for Paolo, there are no limits or boundaries in music and he quickly found gigs in local bars and at private function. 

At the beginning of 2016 he secured a residency for S-Dance Radio 96.1 FM and from there his career began to expand again.

From there Paolo secured gigs with the Rumpus Party at the famous Coronet in Elephant & Castle and Electrowerkz in Angel, had secured an ongoing residency for Pop On Over – Parties, playing on the best Rooftops in London and surrounding areas, and a residency for Tribal Village at the Steelyard playing Psy Trance for 2,000+ people.

His had bookings from festivals like, HEFF (Home Educating Families’ Festival), to play a long set every night for 6 days in the Teen Tent/Party Tent – well that all went down so well, that he’s currently on his forth HEFF and an integral part of the festival.

In 2017 Paolo switched radio stations, starting a Friday night residency on HouseFreqs.com, a fairly new Internet Radio station playing anything Electronic around the world. Through these radio shows Paolo discovered the world of Social Media and Self-Promotion.

So things for Paolo Tossio have moved forward, he maintains all his DJ residencies, and is planning to go back into production very soon, and connect with Record Labels, Productions and most of all Festivals around the world.

In 2018 and 2019, Paolo Tossio began to secure new residencies with Lockside in Camden, and signed with 3 different DJ agencies, Platinum Djs, Jealous Media and MOAI.

2020 it was a year to forget for many, but Paolo Tossio had the luck to still DJ and producing more music.

He managed to secured 2021 gigs with Tribal Village, Together Is Better, The Giving Tree Festival, Womad Festival, and a potential booking for one of the Glastonbury tent stages, and still resident at Lockside Camden, alongside Rob Ryan and Wade from Tropical Velvet Records.

It is 2021 and things are looking brighter, lots of new things coming up…..

New music, and record label in collaboration with Conti, with a new Radio Show on Mixcloud and more to come.
