Despite having a career that started all the way back in the late 1970’s, Paul Oakenfold is still going strong in 2013. In fact, he’s the only DJ that we know of that can say he was a promoter and British agent for the Beastie Boys and the infamous Run DMC way back in the day. Oakenfold is a Brit that has a love for music – all types of music. Back in his early career Oakenfold played music from classics like Earth, Wind and Fire and a lot from the emerging hip-hop scene in the early 80’s. It wasn’t until the late 80’s that Paul Oakenfold really dedicated himself to house and electronic music. Paul is even responsible for topping one of the most beloved bands of all time, U2, back in 1992 when his remix of their hit song ‘Even Better Than The Real Thing’ topped the original version of the song in the music charts (in which Paul was actually hired by U2 because of that). Paul Oakenfold also has the honor of laying claim to 1st place in DJmag’s Top 100 DJ’s chart for 1998 and 1999. Just like his Facebook page bio sums it up – “Whether you are listening to a CD, watching a commercial, going to a club or playing a video game; Paul’s omnimedia presence is felt everywhere.”
