Switch Dunmow’s Record of the Week (continued)

Paul Hutchinson

Essex based Award winning DJ & Producer Paul Hutchinson started DJing in 1988 just as house music started to really take off in the UK. Paul has played across the globe including sets in New Zealand, Miami, Ibiza, Madrid, London & Marbella to name just a few. Paul’s love of Disco and Soulful House is his favourite style to play and this is when you see him shine. “It’s the buzz of seeing people smile and dance that makes this job so amazing”.

Paul is one of the co-founders and DJs for house duo SLAVZ2HOUSE who were formed in 2010 along with best friend Darryl Wright.

Paul’s hard work ethic and love for House Music and Disco has lead him into production where he recently had his new track “My Heartbeat” featuring Fil Straughan played on the BBC Introducing show on BBC Essex, he has recently finished building his own studio at his Essex home, where he has produced well over 60 tracks so far, including remixes for Curtis McClain in Chicago and most recently winning an award for his remix of Tiny Magnetic Pets for the bside project in London.

2017 has been Paul's busiest year to date, his own brand Mi Casa Es Tu Casa already has a sack load of dates planned for monthly parties in Great Dunmow, Saffron Walden and Ibiza. Paul has also launched a new brand called Good Times with Slavz2house partner Darryl Wright, focusing on Soulful House and Disco which launches in April at The Vineyard Bar in Colchester, Essex.

Fil Straughan

Fil Straughan is a musical tour de force. He is a powerful vocalist, prolific songwriter & versatile entertainer who can sing, act, dance & write.

FiL has toured with and supported many celebrities after leaving behind a Wall Street career and architectural degree to pursue his passion.

FiL Straughan has been singing and writing music for many years. His distinctive blend is the energy of Marvin Gaye & the passion of Luther Vandross, which can be heard on the many recordings to his credit.

FiL’s uplifting personality shines though in each and every song…he writes of inspiration, positivity & love…either falling in or out.

Definitely a creative force, FiL also enjoys collaborating with others – whether he has co-written a song or is simply adding his distinctive voice to the mix.

FiL released his first UK album – “My music Pt 1” in 2008 to fantastic acclaim. His second, ‘FiL the SouL’, was released in July 2011, rapidly followed by ‘FiL the POWER’ in December 2011, ‘FiL the LOVE’ in April 2012 with the final of the set ‘FiL the SOUL unplugged’ being released in July 2012.

‘Conversations with Myself’ – a double CD – was released in April 2014.

All have received radio play and are available on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby, as well as streaming services such as Spotify.

In between his solo releases FiL has added vocals and/or writing to a wide variety of  projects (jazz to house music) including UK jazz-funk super band Shakatak’s George Anderson’s 2 CD projects Expressions & Positivity, recorded for Japan releases with Nina Vidal, & has landed a couple of house music record deals in collaboration with  DJ Hutch with legendary house DJ Lenny Fontana’s label.
