Paul is one of Ireland’s top Trance DJs since the 1990s and is dedicated to the world of Trance music over 3 decades later. A long time ago in the late 1980s, electronic music was discovered by Paul in Dublin and as Ireland was not known for this style of music, he knew it was going to be a difficult road ahead, to promote this music.Then came Acid house music to the UK and the era of Ecstacy was found and the introduction of the rave scene was born in the 1990s. Paul travelled to Cream in Liverpool and The Ministry of Sound in London, to study the scene. Eventually, the rave scene arrived in Ireland, with the underground clubs popping up all over Dublin, then the rest of Ireland.
Welcome – Scott Turner here… 25 years on and I’m back with the Freedom 92FM crew. The difference now is we have all grown up (kind of…) and Freedom 92FM is accessible online and digital all around the world from smart devices. I first met with Simon Davis and Andy Walker when I got involved with another Radio Station – Dublin’s KISS 103.2 FM. Ralph McGarry was also a part of the radio station but because of rotas I probably didn’t know him as well as the others.
“So here I am, back where it all started on radio for me about 23 years ago with the Freedom crew. Things were very different back then. It was around 1998, I was playing in clubs around Dublin at the time but couldn’t pass the opportunity to join Simon and Andy and the rest of the freedom family on this fantastic station. I stayed at Freedom for around 2 years and moved on to Hot Radio and eventually Nova Dance but as time went on and djing became more popular the scene became saturated and I moved away from it. Older (yes) and wiser (no) have I become since then? Move forward almost 20 years and the team is back bigger and better and no cold shed to sit in either :)

IN THE BEGINNING….I started on radio sometime around 1997 (I think) on a small radio station called Solar FM. The station was a dance music station run by the infamous Tracey Lee in an attic room beside a bunch of shops on St Peters Rd in Walkinstown, Dublin. They ran an ad on the radio that went something along the lines of “if you see yourself broadcasting to hundreds of listeners, then get in touch”, so…. I did.
