Review: One of just a handful of names worthy of legendary status in electronic music is original superstar DJ, Paul Oakenfold. A true pioneer for trance and the scene in general, his work rate and clear-cut passion doesn't falter even to this day. Here we have a brand new collection of tracks from his DJ Box (or should that be USB stick), on his own Perfecto label (now part of the Armada group). Highlights amongst this tasty lot include; Omnia & The Blizzard Remix of 'Phoenix From The Flames', Sean Truby & Craig Purvis 'Beyond The Horizon', and Tom Fall's remix of Temple One ft Neev Kennedy 'Love The Fear'.. Cop all 11 full length tracks for just L5.99!!
Review: Oakenfold's legendary Perfecto label joined the Armada empire this year, and in doing so they have really upped their game and release rate. This latest featuring the man himself on the remix, could well be contender for their biggest of 2012. Having already garnered chart success across South America in its Original form, Oakie adds trancier synth lines, dramatic twists and turns and his all-round flawless dance-floor power, creating a stadium sound that has travelled the world with him over the past months. Turn it up loud, the vocal will be flying around inside your head for days!
Review: Oakies seminal classic 'Southern Sun' from back in 2002 gets the remix treatment from some fresh talent, and it's great to see plenty of care and attention has gone into making sure these live up to the timeless original. With a forward thinking prog mix coming from the promising Moe Ally, and 'Dark' cuts from Cold Blue, both bringing plenty of energy and sympathetically working with the original elements to ensure the beauty and essence is kept alive. They have bags of floor appeal with Cold Blue suiting uplifting sets as well. Another worth checking is the housier mix from Paul Thomas. An essential over the coming months!
