Paul Carpenter (registered as Caroppo Marcello Pierpaolo) was born in Tricase (Le) on April 16th, 1981 and lived in Ruffano (LE), a small village with around 10.000 inhabitants, until he reached the age of 18.
He began his adventure as a DJ in 1994, at the age of 13, when thanks to his parents and some summer jobs he could finally buy some turntables in order to play at some parties in different villages. As years went by, Paul moved to different towns: first he moved to Florence and then to Bologna (his hometown at present time) where he keeps playing in clubs and producing radio shows.
But his first real success arrived in September 2003, when he started working for Radio International (Bologna) as a DJ and a director for radio programs. In 2005, together with other deejays, he collaborated at the mixed house music radio program called MIXING IN ACTION (that year broadcasted in syndication on over 25 radios throughout the country).
After MIXING IN ACTION he collaborated at the FUTURA FM project, a web radio born out of the will of Paul in putting into practice what he has learned during the last years. In this project he takes care personally for the musical programming and for the house program titled HOUSOLOGY LIVE, broadcasted in syndication on over 30 radios throughout the country.
In November 2007 he starts a new and important cooperation with ALTERNATIVE SOUND PLANET, record shop and Recording Studio working for many different labels of the House scene belonging to the family of labels by THE SAIFAM GROUP. Here he uses different pseudonyms to vary the countless releases throughout the year, including: DJ FERNANDO LOPEZ / BOLOGNA CONNECTION / BAD BROS / AFRIKANER / K88 and many more.
In March 2011 ends the adventure with SAIFAM and starts a new partnership that brings Paul to work with a label historical dance music world: EXPANDED MUSIC. Here Paul cures various activities of the label, but continues to produce music using its pseudonyms.
