Chicago house legend Paul Johnson is in ICU with COVID-19

wptangerine | July 21, 2021

Chicago house legend Paul Johnson is in an intensive care unit [ICU] after becoming infected with COVID-19. 

News broke of Johnson’s hospitalisation earlier this week, with an Instagram post on Tuesday 20th July sent from his bed confirming he was being transferred to ICU, clearly showing respiratory problems and breathing equipment. 

“Shits taken A TURN for the worse. Next is to transfer me to downtown an [sic] a full throat ventilator. Meaning I will not be breathing for myself,” Johnson’s message read. 

Responses and messages of support have poured in from across the global dance music industry and community. 

While Johnson is perhaps best known for his 1999 chart hit ‘Get Get Down’, his contributions to house music go well beyond this. First entering the booth in 1984, his work has graced labels including Dance Mania, Defected, DJax Up Beats, and Peacefrog, in addition to his own Dust Traxx, launched in 1997 with partner Radek

Artists including Cynthie, Patrick Topping, Kink, and Honey Dijon also sent well wishes for a speedy recovery, indicative of the Chicago producer and DJ’s status.
