Happy Birthday, DJ/Producer Paul Johnson #Chicago
Yes, he is, kids. Yes, he is.
Johnson rose to fame on the second wave of Chicago badasses that gave us Cajmere, Heather, Sneak, Farina, and Derrick Carter in the 90s. Due to accidents and illness he has DJd in a wheelchair for much of his career. Not that it’s stopped him from kicking out the jams.
His biggest hit remains “Get Get Down” but I have a soft spot for “Hear the Music.” This track is from 1996, the year I left Chicago for New York after what felt like 3 years of nonstop dancing.
Recorded in Chicago 1996
Mastered at The Exchange, London, England
