Paul Goodyear stands as a distinguished veteran in the realm of dance music, wielding a DJ style that spans an impressive spectrum. Embracing constant evolution, 2014 marked the dawn of “Goodyear Remixed,” a fresh interpretation of a well-established name.

Born to British immigrants in the Greek neighborhood of Marrickville, Sydney, Australia, Goodyear’s musical roots delve into a rich tapestry of Funk, High Energy, Disco, and New Wave. Beginning his vinyl collection at the age of 12, his passion for music burgeoned and has never waned.

Music is Goodyear’s ultimate passion, a force that, when coupled with the diversity of his influences, propels him to continually redefine the boundaries of popular dance music. Presently, his sets oscillate between two distinctive soundscapes: the High Energy style, fusing Tech and Progressive sounds with Latin Beats and Soaring Vocals, and the SanFranDisko style, a fusion of House, Nu, and Dynamic Disco infused with a touch of old-fashioned Soul.

In a musical landscape where relevance is elusive, Goodyear stands out for not just staying attuned to trends but actively contributing to and shaping them. Nicknamed the “Disco Dignitary” and hailed as a “World Renowned Mix Master” and “DJ Sensation,” Goodyear’s journey began in 1985, gaining prominence during Australia’s Summer of Love in 1988. His marathon DJ sets at ARQ nightclub, lasting over 14 hours, became legendary.

With a global footprint, Goodyear has left his mark on dance floors in Australia, the USA, London, Amsterdam, Rio de Janeiro, and beyond. Over his illustrious career, he has notched up numerous chart hits, with remixes ranking on the US Top 20 Billboard Club Play Chart and reaching number one on pop charts in Australasia. As a remixer, writer, and producer, his discography boasts around 400 releases, and he has founded record labels such as “Ace DJ Remix Service,” “Tomcat Music,” and “Goodyear Muzik.”

Based in San Francisco since 2010, Goodyear continues to traverse the globe, crafting his musical magic both in live performances and the studio. With a staggering 35 commissioned remixes completed in the past 12 months alone, Paul Goodyear’s future in the dance music scene promises to be as vibrant, innovative, and inspiring as his past.
