Paul Oakenfold launches into 2013 with his remix of the Bruno Mars smash Locked Out Of Heaven. Available January 15 on Beatport, this remix transforms the sounds of Bruno Mars into a dancefloor banger. The track starts off immediately gravitating listeners for more, and escalates with the vocals of Bruno Mars into a heavy drop, ensuring anyone who’s listening to shut up and dance.
This is a track which is sure to bust its way into WMC 2013. This true house legend will be touring North America – USA – in such cities as Park City, Denver, Sacramento, Scottsdale and San Francisco. Paul’s status and profile in America have grown into something of a phenomenon with the recent achievement of highest selling DJ compilation ever released in US history – with over half a million sales.
As one of the most respected names in the scene, Oakenfold has remained one of the leading ambassadors in EDM culture. His stature as a DJ and entertainer has taken him beyond the normal club and festival circuit, playing landmark gigs that have changed the face of electronic music. Landmarks including performing on the Great Wall of China and two sold out dates playing to 30,000 people at the Hollywood Bowl in California.
In the early 90’s Perfecto Records was born, after a life-changing break in Ibiza in 1987. Paul discovered Balearic music in clubs such as Amnesia. Inspired, he took the sounds back to the UK. Releasing countless high profile releases and remixes in its path, Perfecto Records played an integral role in the birth of trance music, with Paul producing massive international bombs such as Not Over Yet, Bullet In The Gun and Southern Sun.
