DJ Paul Gamblin

Paul Gamblin (DJ) grew up in the 70s on a musical 'diet' of punk rock and roots / dub reggae in the UK. Skip to some 25 plus years later and a life in Australia and Paul's DJ sets not only continue to reflect those earlier influences from his vast record collection but now embrace many international flavours.   Joining the Little Creatures family in 2000 and spinning alternate Fridays at Creatures Next Door, Paul is an ‘old school’ and a vinyl only DJ, always expect to hear the ‘unexpected’ in his selections.
