91.5 & 102.5 FM Phuket Island Radio presents Planet Perfecto by the amazing DJ Paul Oakenfold each and every Friday night.
Paul Oakenfold describes his early life as being a bedroom DJ, stating he grew up listening to The Beatles. Later, 21-year-old Oakenfold and Ian Paul moved to 254 West 54th Street. Studio 54’s Steve Rubell ran the place and only allowed popular people inside. Oakenfold and Paul used fake passes to sneak into places in New York where they met Maze, Bobby Womack and Bob Marley, whom they also interviewed, claiming to be NME and Melody Maker journalists.
In 1987, Paul Oakenfold travelled to the Spanish island of Ibiza in the Balearics for a week to celebrate his birthday. Trevor Fung, Nicky Holloway, Ian Saint Paul, Danny Rampling and Johnny Walker accompanied him. In 1988, he decided to create a place where new artists could develop their careers. At that moment, Perfecto Records was born.
Since pioneering the genre in Ibiza back in 1987, Paul Oakenfold has remained one of the world’s leading ambassadors of electronic music.
His high profile work includes the likes of Madonna, U2 and The Happy Mondays and have made him a household name. But it’s his legendary DJ sets to many millions of fans across the globe that have cemented his position as one of the most respected names on the scene.
