Taking influences from 1970’s global psychedelic funk and disco, 1980’s electro, and 1990’s deep house, while infusing this tropical blend with modern sensibilities, CobraWolfShark (Paul Theodore Chandler) transcends the realm of the average DJ locked into a specific genre. Tempos and percussion percolate and warm inviting bass lines interweave from one exotic location to the next, all executed with a sense of reverence and gravity of the source.
As a classically trained multi-instrumentalist from a very early age, a university graduate of Jazz Studies, and a DJ of 20 years it’s no surprise that Paul is able to combine his experience and technical proficiency with a great love of discovery and innovation to create magic in of course the studio setting, but even more so in real time, in communion with a living, breathing, and moving audience of participants.
Cobra Wolf Shark has performed both nationally and internationally from inside packed nightclubs and posh ski resorts to atop a giant flame-shooting art car at the annual Burning Man festival held in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. With his network of affiliated DJ’s and producers up and down the West coast, CWS is making a name for himself as a secret weapon of deep vibes for festivals and club nights.
