Episode 2. of Rinse And Repeat delivers yet again, another hour of block rocking beats. This time, Chicago legend Paul Johnson beats the box with some classics that we know and love. No stranger to adversity, Johnson has beaten the odds and established himself as a music mainstay for over 30 years. Known from Chicago to the Uk and beyond, Paul Johnson delivers a truly decadent slice of what we call House in this full hour electric mix.

With close to 500 releases to his name over a career spanning more than 30 years, it was only a matter of time before Johnson’s bombastic productions were plucked from the streets of Chicago’s underground by the likes of European labels Djax-Up-Beats, Peacefrog, and even Leo Anibaldi’s explorative ACV. But it was his ‘99 worldwide smash “Get Get Down” for the windy city’s Moody Recordings that awoke the masses to Paul Johnson and the sound of house.

Equally famed for his dexterity and frenetic mixing style behind the decks, Johnson’s sets teem with so much energy it’s with no surprise to see the clubs he plays bead with sweat. A true fitness DJ with soul, his selections blend slamming drums and promiscuous vocals with streaks of gospel, disco and house sentimentalities. Remaining a most respected and charismatic personality to this day, Johnson’s legacy will forever remain a fundamental element within the bedrock of house music and without his pioneering character, life on the dancefloor just wouldn’t be the same.

In Paul Johnson we trust.
