Join Tileyard Education for a night of A&R with Paul Arnold, A&R at ULTRA MUSIC UK
One of the UK’s most innovative and pioneering figures Paul Arnold is the founder and mastermind behind two of the world’s most cutting edge labels, the huge Fat! Records and seminal Certificate 18, and is the UK represenatative for A&R at Ultra Music.
Paul has enjoyed equal success as a promoter, DJ, and Label Manager; everything he’s done reflects how tight his finger is on the pulse of contemporary music.
Paul’s astute A & R ability first manifested itself in 1992 when he launched his successful proto-jungle label Certificate 18 which produced 75 singles and 18 artist albums. Paul almost single-handedly gave birth to the careers of many top name producers such as Photek, Klute, Teebee, Pilote, Source Direct, Digital and Polar. Whilst running Certificate 18 the reputation of Chew The Fat! provided the perfect set up for Fat Records! which captured the sounds of the night on vinyl. Fat! Records was an overnight success boasting a fresh mix of new talent such as breakspoll’s recently crowned Best New Act Friendly at the international breakbeat awards. Alongside established stars such as Lee Coombs, Koma + Bones and Meat Katie. Friendly’s artist album has just been released on Fat! to huge critical acclaim. The next Fat! CD project will be a series of compilation mixes by Paul and the Chew The Fat! DJ’s.
Paul is now A&R at ULTRA MUSIC UK, who work with artists such as Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, David Guetta, KYGO and more.
