Paula Tape is a Chilean artist known for her selection and her percussive sets, which broaden the gap between intricate rhythms and eclectic sounds. With her sophisticated selection, she never fails to amaze with blending her sound between balearic material and floor-filling main time indefinable synth house realms.
Growing up in Santiago De Chile she started her musical journey by playing drums for multiple indie bands in her hometown which then sparked her musical passion for polyrhythmic patterns. The percussive sounds of the drums are a distinct sound which she’s brought over into her own productions and are a key feature of when she plays out dj sets across the globe.
Her debut EP “Agua Congas” on SOBO gained great support around the world and opened the door to many more people discovering her distinct sound, which then has now lead to her signing releases on Rhythm Section and Permanent Vacation.
Milan is currently where she's based, where she has the chance to follow her natural inclination to dig for hidden gems and is actively involved in "Tempo Dischi” a label dedicated to italian reissues of rarities, distributed by Rush Hour. She is a resident on Worldwide FM where she hosts her monthly show Astral Jam, a journey into odd rhythms, leftfield sounds and organic dance.
When settled in Milan after living in Barcelona she devoted herself full time to her primary passion and started releasing her own music. “Agua Congas EP” on SOBO was welcomed warmly around the world and opened the door for forthcoming releases on Rhythm Section and more to come in 2020. Following her natural inclination to dig for hidden gems she took part into "Tempo Dischi” a label dedicated to italian reissues distributed by Rush Hour.
The passion for old tracks and percussive sounds shape her eclectic style which reflect her radio residencies on Radio Raheem and WorldwideFM, and it’s a hallmark of her club sets.
