It's Ibiza and America for the summer, then we're going to hear a rather unique new album...
Paul Oakenfold has revealed to nme.com his plans for the future following his recent departure from his residency at London superclub home.
Speaking this weekend (July 22) at Fresno, California’s ‘Cyberfest’, Oakenfold put an end to rumours he left home to return to Liverpool’s Cream.
“I disagreed with the way the club was going and it’s time to move on,” he said. Oakenfold‘s next project will take him to Ibiza for a residency at Club Pacha for the summer, before returning to America for the Burning Man festival in August, and more US dates in the autumn.
Though he has spoken extensively in the press about breaking the US, the DJ/producer said he felt his Stateside ambitions were not unique.
He explained, “Every artist all over the world wants to do well in America and I’m not different from any [other] artist.”
This latest American stint seems to be going well for Oakenfold, who together with drum ‘n’ bass maestro Aphrodite, recently sold out the 10,000 capacity Red Rocks stadium in Colorado.
In other business, currently awaiting sample clearing, the Perfecto label boss also told nme.com his album, which will feature music from various artists, including Led Zeppelin, will finally be released in September.
“It’s going to have classical pieces of music, film scores, and remixes that have never been [commercially released],” he said.
