Paul Oakenfold's Greatest Hits & Remixes celebrates the career of an artist whose combined releases have totaled almost two million in sales in the U.S. alone. Its track listing ranges from original productions such as his massive singles "Starry Eyed Surprise" as featured in a Diet Coke ad and "Ready Steady Go" from his debut artist album Bunkka to "Faster Kill Pussycat" featuring Brittany Murphy from its follow up A Lively Mind. In addition, there are remixes galore of artists like Justin Timberlake, Madonna, The Smashing Pumpkins and Underworld and soundtrack pieces such as David Arnold's James Bond Theme from the motion picture Die Another Day and Oakenfold's "Dread Rock" from Matrix Reloaded. Greatest Hits & Remixes also includes four brand-new exclusive remakes of Radiohead's "Everything In Its Right Place," Oakenfold's "Southern Sun," Everything But The Girl's "Missing" and Mark Ronson featuring Daniel Merriweather's "Stop Me."
A deluxe edition of Greatest Hits & Remixes will be made available on the same day and will include a bonus documentary DVD about the life and times of the world's defining DJ/Producer. Filmed in Ibiza, London and Los Angeles, the xx-minute film gives fans a peek at the Grammy-nominated artists world including a private tour of the Chelsea soccer stadium in the U.K., his villa in exotic Ibiza and life at home in Los Angeles. Friends, business associates and family are also interviewed in the piece, providing a close look at what makes Paul Oakenfold tick.
In support of his Greatest Hits, Oakenfold will embark on a DJ tour across America throughout November. Beginning November 6 in Scottsdale, AZ, he'll set out on a 13- city run of appearances making stops in cities such as New York City, Nashville, Dallas, Houston, Orlando, Miami, Atlanta and more. At each date, fans will get to experience the music featured on the album expertly mixed with Oakenfold's current favorite tracks.
From scoring the movie Swordfish, to working with the Boston Pops Orchestra, to holding the claim in the Guinness Book of World Records as the World's most popular DJ, Paul has never slowed, never wavered, and continues to break new ground and be at the forefront of not only electronica but the music industry itself. Prior to becoming a world famous DJ and producer, Oakenfold served as an A&R consultant for Profile Records and Def Jam, where he signed artists including Salt N Pepa, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith.
