With nothing more than a second hand mixing kit and an eclectic array of records, PAOLO TOSSIO burst onto the London scene in 1996 – a truly independent talent with an authentic, uplifting, and humble approach, he became well known for his creative ingenuity, original grooves, diverse music genres, and high-energy positive vibes on the decks, and his ability to connect with the crowd and spread those positive vibes through his own productions…“It’s humbling to hear from people whose hearts and minds have been uplifted by my music”…
A professional, competent, and experienced independent producer and DJ, with over 25 years of experience playing clubs, bars, festivals, private parties, and hosting varied genres of online radio shows, Paolo effortlessly connects his like-hearted passion for life with the listener, and energizes an open-minded relationship between the people, the music and himself, co-creating an unforgettable journey of sounds as he uplifts the collective spirit. His extensive musical background has nurtured his ability to create and deliver delicious sounds and stirring sets which you can discover via: www.linktr.ee/paolotossio and/or take a good look through his EPK.
Variety of musical style, Paolo regularly plays his favorite genres of Techno – Trance and Progressive Tech and Melodic Techno, but his respect for good music allows him to satisfy any genre requirements. Resident at Cyberdog in Camden Market since July ‘21, Paolo’s rocking the store with his favorite brand of Techno, Trance and Classic Anthems every week – it’s a trip down memory lane as he played on their stage every Saturday back in the late 90’s.

November ‘23, Paolo signed to Italian Techno label, Beenoise Records and EventiMusica agency.
