Paul 'Trouble' Anderson (28 September 1959 – 2 December 2018) was a British DJ, playing soul, disco, funk, and house music and known for his long-running Kiss FM show.[1][2][3] He worked as a dance music DJ in clubs from 1979 until his death in 2018.[4] He produced a number of mix albums and remixed records by other artists.


Anderson was born in East London.[3]

In 1985 he helped found Kiss FM, the UK's first legal dance music radio station, with Gordon Mac.[4][5] From 1990 to 1998 he hosted a prime time Saturday Kiss FM show from 9 to 11 pm.[1][5] Mixmag called the show "the official start to any night out happening in London Town during the 1990s";[1] Radio Today called it "a pre-clubbing ritual for a whole generation of nineties Londoners";[5] Greg Wilson called it "something of a pre-clubbing institution for Londoners, Paul undoubtedly one of the most influential DJs of the period."[6]

From 2012 up until his death, Anderson played on Mi-Soul, the London radio station set-up by Mac.[7]

He died on 2 December 2018, aged 59.[4][8][9]
