Paolo Mojo

Assuming the position, following "that cute DJ" Desyn Masiello's turn, as mixmaster for the Balance CD series (it's up to number nine) is Paolo Mojo, a British turntablist who has been around since the early Nineties and has flirted often with ignition but failed to quite catch — until now, maybe. Mojo had a moment in 2001 when his Music Is Freedom double-disc set earned acclaim from Danny Tenaglia and Carl Cox, and he is a frequent guest at John Digweed's nights at London club Bedrock. Balance 09 is a head-bobbing if not jaw-dropping mix of progressive house and genre classics including feature tracks and remixes by Underground Resistance, Nic Fanciulli, Nathan Fake, Deee-Lite and others. Mojo is a personable fellow, though, and his live performances, which combine the concentrated, technically complicated knife-edge drops of Richie Hawtin with the crowd-pumping of Paul Oakenfold, have revivified his stateside following.
