DJ Paypal is one of footwork's most fascinating figures. His take on footwork is kaleidoscopic and vivid, expanding on the Spinn and Rashad template for a new wave of footwork that looks backwards and forwards in equal measure. His Mall Music label is home to some of footwork's most idiosyncratic voices, including DJ Mastercard and his lush sci-fi funk, and the whiplash mixtapes and a new album from DJ Orange Julius. Paypal's own discography, which comprises a 30-track collection of Drake edits and the retro disco vibes of the Buy Now EP on LuckyMe, among other delicacies, approaches footwork from all sorts of angles. Growing increasingly obsessed with jazz, funk and soul music, Paypal's latest, Sold Out, has brought him to Flying Lotus’ imprint Brainfeeder, showcasing what he can do at 160 BPM.
DJ Paypal is since 2013 has toured extensively throughout the world, including performances at several high profile festivals as well as club debuts in Asia, Australia, and Russia.
Currently he has a monthly summer radio residency with Rinse.FM.
