Paul White Shaker Notes

Paul White is a London-based producer who has supplied Danny Brown with beats and recently released his fantastic versatile album Shaker Notes on R&S Records – he is also one half of Golden Rules. This Beat Bungalow interview is from 2009, a very busy year for Mr White who then released two EPs and three long players through One-Handed Music. Without further introduction, let’s get to it…
What’s up Paul, where are you from? And how did you get into making music?

I’m from south east London, a place called Lewisham. My dad used to play a lot of music in the house, and my parents got me piano lessons when I was a kid, then I played guitar and sang. I just always loved music, the energy and emotion of it!

You worked as a library producer for the BBC and Channel4, how has that shaped your sound? What kind of projects were you working on during that time?
I used to write ambient music anyway and loved creating atmospheres so getting to do that for picture was a great experience! I was doing music for an interactive educational drama series, a long time ago now. I still do little bits for it now and again though, that was really good to try other things musically. I also did some music and sound design for some crazy animations and short films, mainly on mental health. Lots of fun, pretty heavy stuff though.

What types of music do you like? Are you a vinyl head?
I like everything pretty much, reggae dub soul funk prog rock psych jazz electro new wave avant garde, everything really. I love discovering new music, and yeah I’m a vinyl head!

What elements do you think are important to a good tune?
Feeling, put your personality and heart and imagination in there!

Tell us more about your record label, One-Handed Music: who’s involved in that?
A guy called Alex Chase runs it, he’s a really open-minded guy with great ideas, he’s been amazingly supportive! I met Bullion through him and the label, Tranqill’s got an EP coming out soon, hopefully a guy called Tightface will have something out soon too, ever expanding!

What do you do outside from making beats to chill out?
Listen to music, jump on a recently borrowed drum kit, read a wax poetics. If I could I’d love to surf more, I love it!

Are there any good club nights or music events in London that you’d recommend?
To be honest I’m a studio man, but there’s stuff going on, the Jazz Cafe always has so many amazing nights I always miss!

Any fresh music that you’re listening to right now?
Tightface, loving Karriem Riggins stuff! I mainly listen to old records now to be honest!

Have you got any plans to release a new record in the next year?
Got an album coming out on joint One Handed Music and Now Again in the spring, a remix for Tranqill, a remix for Mux Mool, another couple singles are nearly done too, plans to work with some MCs, and hopefully loads of other stuff too!

thanks.
