PAUL JOHNSON (CHICAGO) | JAN 1971 – AUG 2021

Paul Johnson (Born: Jan 11, 1971, Chicago, Illinois, USA – Died: Aug 4, 2021) was an American house DJ and producer.

He released a vast amount of music for some of the most consistently underground dance labels before hooking up with Peacefrog Records. 12″ releases on the likes of Cajual Records / Relief Records and Dance Mania led to his debut album release “Bump Talkin'” in 1996. This and the follow up “Feel The Music” became two of the most talked about releases of their time.

His remix work for Stacy Kidd, Joey Beltram, Green Velvet, Armando, Ce Ce Peniston, Ron Trent, K-Alexi, and Steve Poindexter made its way into all the big jocks boxes, many of which remain there to this day.
He lost the use of his legs as a result of a shooting accident in 1987, and required a wheelchair for mobility.
