The myth of British DJ and producer Paul Oakenfold dwarfs the man himself, as his name has become synonymous with the mainstreamed, hyper-speed house music that has invited disdain and devotion in equal measure for over two decades. Indeed, for those who aren’t patrons of electronic music, his is the only name (and style) that is typically recognizable, inviting visions of drug-addled Ibiza parties, bright-yellow smiley faces and the blur of glow sticks shredding the tepid air. But these micro-culture clichés about Oakenfold and the world he helped create unfairly mock what is actually a rich, defining legacy. Between his epic residencies at the UK’s biggest clubs in the ’80s and his remixes for U2, Massive Attack, The Cure and many more, Oakenfold ostensibly paved the way for DJs to be stars in their own right. And he hasn’t slowed down since.
