Originating from Hubbard, Ohio, DJ, producer, and label owner Victor Paul aka 45Thieves has made quite the name for himself around the dance music panorama these past years. His musical venture first began in 1990 when he produced his early hit ‘The Lion Sleeps’ which instantly became a sought after reggae jungle anthem.
From then on, 45Thieves became the frontrunner for Jungle Drum and Bass community, this lead him to create his own imprint Conquest Recordings. In the beginning Victor began to press his own wax out of a record shop, where Conquest was born. It would later turn into an international jungle imprint that it is today!
During 1999 45Thieves set off and made his expedition to Thailand, relocating to the city of Bangkok. Whilst settling in Thieves began to use the sounds of his area into the music. He continues recording his own live sounds and adding them to his productions – it is believed that 45Thieves’ soul originated from deep within the jungle as he writes his world into his music.
45Thieves records have found their way into some of most cutting edge DJ’s crates. From DJ Swamp, Craze, Z-Trip to countless Junglist worldwide. You never know what to expect from Bangkok’s original junglist but one thing is for sure, it will be heavy!
