Paul Ryder

Paul Ryder’s hypnotic grooves abetted by his rounded tone and on-top-of-the beat disposition fueled the Madchester explosion in the late 1980s.

Fusing Northern soul, dub, psychedelia, house, and funk - Ryder and his mates essentially created a new genre which had tremendous crossover appeal.  

Following the Mondays, with whom he occasionally reunites, Paul has worked as a DJ and an actor, and anchored ensembles including Big Arm.
