Raised in Manchester studying at Jazz at Chethams School of Music and Trinity College of Music, Paleman has rapidly risen through the ranks since emerging in 2012 from within the UKs vibrant post-dubstep scene
He has quickly become one of the most respected DJs and producers with a view to innovation and experimentation. Multiple releases on Swamp81 started his career aged 18 followed by a collaboration with UK mercury prize jazz nominees Polar Bear in 2014 before he launched his own white label series in 2016 “PLMN”. Paleman now has a curated solo show “Hyphal Networks” on Rinse FM, exploring experimental techno sounds and has debuted his textural electronic percussion based live show at Manchester International festival. Recently, four self releases under his belt on his imprint PLMN Records and EPs in 2018 and 2019 with Berlin based Zehnin Records and Nonplus Records, Paleman seems to be on an ever increasing upwards curve, shifting his sound and exploring new realms of experimental modular driven techno that defies convention.
Paleman’s knack for percussive, textural and elegantly minimal dance floor music has taken him around the world from Tresor in Berlin and across the UK to Australia, India and Canada all to showcase his unique DJing style and huge array of unreleased experiments. With studies in classical music and jazz his drumming skills and influences take note from all four corners of the experimental musical world, and also the dystopian future of hardware based machine music as well as experimental early electronics. Paleman seems to constantly be pushing boundaries in both his DJ and live sets and also his productions – 2020 seems set to reveal even more of the experienced producer.
