Paul Johnson (born Paul Leighton Johnson, 1971, Chicago, Illinois) is an American house DJ and producer.

He first began DJing in Chicago in 1985, and started working as a producer in 1990, doing tracks for Chicago house labels Dance Mania, Relief, Cajual, Nite Life, Undaground Therapy, Defected, DJax Up Beats, Peacefrog, and Moody. His tune "Get Get Down" became an international house hit, sustaining airplay for several years in clubs and was a top 5 hit in the UK Singles Chart. The song reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart in December 1999, and remained on the survey for 18 weeks. The tune is also used by West Ham United F.C. fans to sing to their striker Demba Ba. Johnson started the Chicago house label Dust Traxx, and has worked with Robert Armani under the name Traxmen and with Gant Garrard as Brother 2 Brother. His 2004 track, "Follow This Beat", hit #8 on the US Dance chart.

Johnson is unable to walk and DJs in a wheelchair, due to an accidental gunshot in his shoulder in 1987.
