2019 Rewind: Pagano


How was 2019 for you?
Pagano: Do you mean apart from the world generally falling apart? It was actually a pretty good year professionally, with some super-fun gigs, lots of great music and plenty of dance floor madness!

I loved the resurgent popularity of house and techno. My gig in front of more than 10,000 people at Palais12 in Brussels; my label KISM getting promo support from heavyweights like Alan Fitzpatrick, Gary Beck, Nicole Moudaber, Mark Knight; my releases on Toolroom, Unity, and all the other labels I collaborated with. The launch of my new event OFF at The Steel Yard in London … and Greta Thunberg! She is a real hero of our time!

The general political and divisive climate worldwide.

Song of the year?
Avision – “Big Shot” (Paco Osuna Remix). I especially love the lyrics on this one!

What’s your New Year’s resolution?
No more Jägerbombs. No more carbs. Get another Beatport number 1 and generally stop being so daft!
