Latest Live Set / Radio Mix by Paul Hazendonk (Manual Music)


Paul Hazendonk was born in the suburbs of Rotterdam in 1982. As a young kid he already developed an excessive interest for music, quickly discovering house music and noticing the deejays who were mixing records together. He found his passion..

He got his first club gig at age 18 and after that it all seemed like one big rollercoaster ride. In the first years of his carreer he already played at some of Holland’s most infamous clubs, parties and festivals. Shortly after, his talents also got noticed abroad, taking him to over 20 different countries to perform throughout the years.

Paul started his first label, Technique, back in 2002 whilst working at the legendary record company and store Basic Beat which was located in the heart of Rotterdam. Nowdays both Technique and Basic Beat are defunkt but Paul is more active than ever in the record business, being the owner of the Manual Music company. Manual Music releases music on various (sub)labels, takes care of artist management, digital distribution and music publishing.

Having always been a DJ first and a producer second, it took some time before Paul got busy in the studio, but in the last couple of years his name as a producer is getting more and more known globally, after having signed to respected labels such as Hope Recordings, Diynamic Music, Sleaze Records, Einmusika, Sudbeat, Proton Music, Lowbit Records + naturally his own label Manual Music.

Both his DJ and production style has evolved throughout the years from full on techno to a more mature sound, music with an infectious drive, blending elements of (deep)house, techhouse and techno, depending on time and place of performance.. But who cares for all those genre tags anyway,right?
