Paul Oakenfold has a near impeccable sense of timing and taste. As a producer, DJ, remixer and head of Perfecto Records, he's been the driving force behind the creation of various musical genres. Paul has got himself into the perfect position. He can be in the studio one week producing a tune and be playing the result to 100,000 people a couple of days later, and then release it on his own record label. In terms of DJ-ing itself he's done it all from headlining the Glastonbury mainstage to playing at technically spooky venues in Bombay and China.

He's promoted his sound, trance, slowly yet surely via well planned tours of America and elsewhere, a two-year residency at Cream, and by doing some excellent Essential Mixes for Radio 1.

Paul first opened the doors of his own label Perfecto in 1990. But with the worldwide growing popularity of trance now confirmed as a 21st century phenomenon, this label is more relevant than ever. Building on the enormous chart success of house act Planet Perfecto and Russian duo PPK, Perfecto is trance’s hottest new millennium brand name.

As well as a vehicle for Paul’s music – his debut album 'Bunkka' was released in June 2002 – Perfecto is developing into a home for an international dance roster of unequalled up and coming talent, all proof that Paul’s globe-trotting DJ career provides an outlet for his A&R signing skills.

German multi-genre stepper Timo Maas released his album 'Loud' to critical acclaim last year, whilst Argentina's Hernan Cattaneo - currently on tour with Oakenfold - has mixed a 'Perfecto Presents' album for the series as well as releasing singles under his own name. Other artists with singles on Perfecto include Daniele Davoli from Italy, Texan D:Fuse, New Yorker Harry “Choo Choo” Romero, Flash from Israel, and the founders of 'transki: Moscow’s PPK.

Perfecto’s international “Underground Sounds” EP series has already documented the sounds of the USA, Australia and Holland. The “Perfecto Presents” series has featured two great mix compilations from Paul, Timo Maas’ “Connected” plus a collection from DJ legend Arthur Baker with further projects planned for 2003. The latest offering from the label comes in the form of Perfecto Breaks: a quality 'breaks and beats' series inaugurated by Lee Coombs in October 2002.

Look out for the defining mix with the release of Perfecto Hits in Spring 03; a collection of Perfecto's finest moments to date, from 1990 through to the present day
