Paul Chin – designer to some, producer to others, friend to all – is a Toronto-based artist, originally from the Cayman Islands. Equal parts borne of the influence of J Dilla and school band; DC Comics and art school, Paul came up on a steady diet of hip-hop grooves, Saturday morning cartoons, sheet music for hymns, and Futura. His “EDM equivalent of folk music” sound has developed as a product of vulnerable storytelling through his music, combined with intricate attention to detail, and a love of polyrhythms. A dedicated loyalist and champion of “Culturecraft”, Paul wants nothing more than to travel the world to DJ, and collect vinyl and adidas sneakers.
Paul’s fourth solo EP, Dancing Drums, drops on digital and 12” vinyl, via Bastard Jazz this Spring.
