In the build-up to the release of Paul Oakenfold’s Four Seasons 4 x CD album in November, the most successful DJ in the world’s exclusive appearance at Villa will bring his full Four Seasons audio and visual production down under.
It has been three long years since Paul Oakenfold last graced our shores. In that time Paul has been extremely busy; having partnered his widely respected Perfecto label with Armin Van Buuren’s almighty Armada Music, the label continues to be at the forefront of electronic music boasting a continuous stream of successful new releases. Paul’s globally syndicated radio show Planet Perfecto is now aired in over 40 countries every week and has quickly amassed a legion of loyal fans worldwide. 2012 sees Paul return to the DJ circuit in a big way, and his dates around Australia are sure to prove it. Pre-sales for his Sydney show at the Hordern Pavilion sold out in less than 24 hours – Mr Oakenfold’s still got ‘it’.
His highly acclaimed Four Seasons Tour and album concept, which embraces a cutting edge visual show fused with Paul’s Full On Fluoro sound, has recaptured the imaginations of fans new and old worldwide.
Paul Oakenfold’s story is woven so tightly into the fabric of what we know of today’s ‘dance music’ it’s hard to put one of the true legends of electronic music’s history into words. For over 3 decades he has shaped and changed an entire genre of dance music and continues to be the leading force in the global music scene, paving the way all other artists in the genre. The first global dj to have a residency in Las Vegas – he helped the city go on to win the tag of the ‘Ibiza of the USA’ and his Perfecto Record label has opened the doors for countless headliners including David Guetta. His artistry and craft has earned him accolades from critics and fans as well as 2 Grammy nominations and the ability to play anywhere in the world, like the Great Wall of China.
