paul 'dizzi' saunders
Raised from a young age by London’s underground culture, with over 30 years of promoting & events experience starting in his teens, paul has consistently investigated and reinvented the cultural scenes of London. Now behind award-winning concepts and ground breaking events, with a long history in the rave and club scene, his roots, has built many successful establishments, bringing together many different strands of urban culture and artistic expression and combining them into a greater movement.
Starting in the early ‘80s with several successful UK events, Paul packed up and moved to Tenerife, pioneering the first large-scale raves on the island, from the famous Cactus Park to a disused circus.
After 5 years away, Paul returned to London and got straight back to running some of the best parties of that era in venues varying from the normal nightclubs to disused warehouses, farmers’ fields to recording complexes and theatres.
Dizzi bought his own club in Soho – the velvet room – forming a focal point for the scene and establishing the majority of the dance music trends for the next two decades.
