What is it with all the Oakenfold haters on here? ok if you don't like his style of music then f**k off and listen to something else that is purely subjective, I can only guess your trolling for an argument, what he has contributed to dance music is a hell of a lot and that my friends is A FACT. It makes me laugh when people slag oakey yet id argue its the records he played that are the most wanted by trance djs, just look on YouTube, discogs, tranceaddict, tuneid.com if you don't believe me, some will never be found as they were probably personal cuts, others youd have to part with some serious cash to even tempt people to sell them. Aside from djing he remixed the up and coming bands of the 80s and early 90s...Happy Mondays, U2, Stone Roses to name a few. His mixing was never up there with sasha and digweed but his set construction was top notch, and he always gave you the wow factor!! the goa mix is considered legendary by many, again people on here saying its shit look at the price it goes for....would people pay £100+ for a shit mix cd? I think not, his New York GU mix is still the best in the series for me [closely followed by sasha's Ibiza] back in 1998 those tracks were groundbreaking and those labels like hooj, perfecto, quad were churning out some beauts then. The only thing that infuriates me about Oakey is that he had a tendency to play really good records and some shockers....zombie nation, PPK, dj garry - dream universe to name a few, was he selling out or was it down to producers making shit records?...or was oakey having a midlife!!...you decide! Between 2003-10 he did hit a flat spot but picked himself up out of the doldrums with the mix "never mind the bollocks" mix. If you want overated djs look no further than tiesto, paul van dyk, seb fontaine, judge jules it would be blasphemous to corral oakey into the same pen as those guys. Listen to his sets at Kellys Portrush, Creamfields etc from when he was in his prime [1994-00] and you are listening to one of the masters of the turntables, I have tons of rare mixes by this guy and never get tired of listening to him...Sir Paul I salute you ;)

Great DJ, used to make music that was ahead of his time.

One of the worst DJs to have ever lived, unfortunately the majority of club punters have no idea.

Mr. Oakenfold was a DJ ahead of his time, back in the day he was armed with nothing but vinyl and a CD player. Mixing, ethnic and rock music into his trance mixes, putting unknown artists on CDs with top names. Almost any mix CD you pick up is bound to give you a sense of travel as it covers vast sonic spaces creating an illusion of travelling. Halting kick drums to a screech to give room for a deep ambient track, clearing up glow sticks on the floor to let soulful vocals fill the minds of people and occasionally helping an injured puppy. These are all technics that less skilled DJs of today rely on thanks to the pseudo art of software mixing which allows them to stay intoxicated longer behind the decks with less worry about the equipment and the mood of the dancing society...hooray for progress.

In Regards to: Surrender (Protoculture Remix)

With his classic-crescendos, waves of wonder, progressive-pulses & spirals of sonic-splendor....
Mr Oakenfold & Raubenheimer take's us on a full-on experimental experience of new euphoric eruptions & timeless travels into toe tapping trance & time itself......

JUST FANTASTIC.......

It's no coincidence Paul Oakenfold mixed some of the Best and Most Memorable Trance Albums of ALL TIME:
Tranceport, Creamfields, A Voyage into Trance, GU004, GU007, Perfecto Presents...
Paul Oakenfold is now a living legend!

Do people just come on here to slag off producers and performers? Elsewhere they slag of Tiesto. Here they slag off Paul. I wonder how many of them were around in the early days! Like what you like. Comment on what you don't like but give a reason that might steer others.

Personally I find Paul a difficult one. I suspect he has experimented more than most and as a result I cherry pick his songs. For pure trance it is difficult to beat Southern Sun [the Tiesto remix of course]. I love Faster Kill Pussycat but, like many songs, that is possibly because of the memories it invokes. The best I can say is that most of his tracks rate well above average in my collection but few of them get the full 5 * rating.

I rarely comment on a DJ. Most of them are fairly good and very enjoyable so I tend not to rate or comment on a particular DJ expect for their mixes. There are some I come across that's just absolutely not my cup of tea so I'd just stay clear from him/her. Paul Oakenfold, though, is my cup of tea.

Unfortunately, I found his music as of late very pop-sounding and uses very odd track selection. There's vocal trance and then there's Paul's vocal tracks which is just very bizarre. Perhaps it's his style or the direction he wants to take. Daring but original. Simply, I find Oakenfold's music different than what it use to be.

Although reading other listener's comments, I will say I'll give him another chance or very open to his latest offering. Take his 2004's Creamfields album for an example. The man still has it after all those years. It's probably the most played Oakenfold cd(s) I own, next to Resident and Tranceport.

While not the world's greatest and has his ups & downs(like everyone else), I still like the majority of his music.

If you're new to trance, you should definately start here and then work your way up with the rest of the mainstream artists like Paul van Dyk, John Digweed, Sasha, Pete Tong and Armin van Buuren.

So what if Oakenfold has become a HUGE commercial success - all the more for dance music! This is a man who in essence has defined dance music and DJ status around the world and people expect him to be ashamed of it! Bollocks! Oakenfold has become a star in his own right, he has earned it - not by luck but by sheer bloody hard work. What you are looking at is a professional career spanning over twenty years. Take a look and see what he's accomplished - then judge the man!
