Historical Facts

Paul Oakenfold built his music related resume through the eighties and hit the mainstream, along with his engineer/remix collaborator Steve Osborne, with remixes of Happy Mondays tracks in 1989, particulalry 'Hallelujah'. This led to demand for their work in 1990. 


'Future' and 'Land Of Oz' were popular club nights run by Oakenfold in the late eighties.


'Jesus Loves You' was founded by Boy George


'Max Q' was a short-lived band fronted by Michael Hutchence of INXS. The bassline on the remix is taken from Clivilles & Cole's Seduction track
