For over 15 years Paula Temple has been pursuing her own unique musical path. As a self-confessed noisician living in Berlin, she specialises in a noisy, phantasmagoric techno sound, where the dial is rarely turned below 200% and every moment of silence seems deafening. Paula’s music is fearlessly liberating artistic statements that de es the boundaries of linear.The legendary label R&S Records released ’Colonized’ EP in 2013, ‘Deathvox’ EP in 2014, and her massive remixes for The Prodigy in 2015. The track ‘Deathvox’ is regarded by her peers as one of the most original contributions to modern techno. Her most celebrated track ‘Gegen’ remains an anthem at festivals worldwide and was inspired by the caring and de ant queer community of Berlin. ‘Contact’ from her ’The Speck of The Future’ EP appeared on Jeff Mills’ Exhibitionist compilation, and her track ‘Oscillate’ appeared in the nal releases on Modeselektor‘s 50 Weapons label. Both of these tracks are distinctly inspired by classic Detroit and German electro techno.She has remixed avant-electronic acts such as The Knife, Peaches, Perera Elsewhere and Plan- ningtorock. In 2015 she started a unique collaboration series called Decon/Recon on her label Noise Manifesto, working with several artists including rRoxymore, Aisha Devi and SØS Gunver Ryberg. In 2016 Karin Dreijer invited Paula to co-produce songs on the new Fever Ray album ‘Plunge’. Never one to shy away from her political convictions, during the 2000s Paula withdrew from the techno scene for six years to teach music and technology to young people facing disadvantages in England. She also co-developed an innovative live performance midi controller MXF8, one of the rst of its kind for music technology and ultimately shaped her current style of Hybrid LIVE/DJ performances. Progress never comes from following the norm. So before Paula returned to music making, she wrote the Noise Ma- nifesto in 2012, a clear statement challenging the oppressive norms of society and the music industry, from which Noise Manifesto operates as a platform to support likeminded artists and collaborations.
