"Westword Music Showcase reviewed: Bar Standard"


DJ Paul Garcia - 5:00 - P
I hated to sneak away from the Swayback to catch this, but was pleasantly surprised to find it quite enjoyable. Garcia built on the clubby vibe Dragon had laid down, switching from the progressive and trance to an electro house set, but losing none of the energy. And it was blissfully cool, which should have been a warning - just as I was really starting to feel it, the rain came down, hard and put an end to that. Damn.

Verdict: The weather hates Paul Garcia, but I think he's pretty good. - Village Voice Media

Bio

Paul began his DJ career playing school functions at East High school in Denver when he was a student there, playing house music for his peers garnering respect from a crowd that was admittedly hip-hop based, even sneaking MC's into East's gymnasium to pump the party while Paul rocked the turntables.

Paul parlayed his school function deejaying into gigs at house parties, graduation parties and eventually weddings before getting a break playing some of the largest raves taking place in Colorado at the time, at one point opening for the infamous 2 Live Crew at Pike's Peak Int'l Raceway in 1999.
In 2000, Paul's popularity in New Mexico blew up, causing him to move to Albuquerque, thereby opening up opportunities to rock crowds all over the southwest US.

Since returning to Denver in 2003, Paul has held down residencies at several local clubs and for a few local production companies, steadily growing his fan base from a mere handful of devotees to a solid mass of supporters.

In 2008, Paul placed 2nd in Westword Magazine's annual DJ Battle and Won the first ever 15 Minutes of Fame DJ Battle produced by Triad Dragons, the producer of the world-renown Global Dance Festival at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Most notably from 2008, Paul was one of two deejays selected to perform at the "Tent State Music Festival to End the War" during the 2008 Democratic National Convention, which hosted superstar talent such as Rage Against The Machine and Denver's own Flobots. The festival ended with a 10,000 person march from the Denver Coliseum to the Pepsi Center to protest the war in Iraq.

In 2009, Paul was signed to Rugburn Records, a upstart record label with presence in LA, Denver and Miami and has several releases planned, beginning in July, 2009 with Paul's James Brown inspired track "Offa That Thing".

In addition, Paul is currently nominated by Westword Magazine for Best Dance Music DJ in Colorado and was recently booked to perform at the Westword Music Showcase, the premier local talent showcase in Denver.

Paul's devotion to stay true to his Denver roots has struck a chord with his Denver supporters, bringing him a energized following to any performances of his. His support in other locales has grown to the point of being able to support tours in several areas of the country.

2010 proves to be an even bigger year for Paul with several releases planned, including his first full length album of original house music releases and his first East Coast tour. During this time, Paul plans on bringing his political activist spirit to his performances to rally support for some of his favorite causes and organizations, including UNICEF, Fightwithfood.org, Peaceways and many more.
