Paul Oakenfold

Is there anything that Paul Oakenfold hasn't done? The London-born wax worker has been dubbed the world's most successful DJ (per Guinness World Records), toured with Madonna, sold zillions of CDs, reportedly has collected as much as £25,000 or more for certain gigs, and collaborated with actress Brittany Murphy on the club hit single "Faster Kill Pussycat" off his 2006 disc, A Lively Mind. If that doesn't make you want to hang the DJ just yet, the top-rated house and trance turntablist has also remixed such music-industry glitterati as Snoop Dogg, U2, The Cure, and Massive Attack, as well as providing tracks for flicks ranging from Swordfish to The Matrix Reloaded. Bask in Oakenfold's superstardom on Friday, November 24, when he performs at Myst, 7340 East Shoeman Lane in Scottsdale, for House 7340. Doors open at 9 p.m. and pre-sale tickets are $30, but call 480-970-5000 the day of the event for price updates.
