Paul Oakenfold

Paul Oakenfold’ musical career started from admirably humble beginnings, playing soul and rare groove cuts in a Covent Garden wine bar in the late ‘eventies with mate Trevor Fung. By the early ’eighties, having decided that NYC was the place, Paul decamped there armed only with the chutzpah to blag his way into a courier’ job in West Harlem. At that time, more than any other, New York was bursting with musical invention: hip-hop was the freshest street sound around, and Larry Levan – arguably the first ever superstar DJ, inspiring a frenzy in the crowd that some guy playing records had never inspired before – was packing out the Paradise Garage every week with the revolutionary, hypnotic mixing style that would become the acid house DJ’ stock in trade.
