GRAMMY NOMINATED DJ/PRODUCER PAUL OAKENFOLD  CONTRIBUTES NEW TRACK TO EXCLUSIVE VIDEO GAME MUSIC VIDEO SERIES

Click Here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lrtw42Xrybc

August 15th 2011, (Los Angeles, CA) - On August 15th Machinima.com will launch the second highly anticipated video in The Machinima Music Video Series with the Exclusive World Premiere of a game-based animated music video for the exciting new track from internationally renowned DJ/ Producer Paul Oakenfoldcalled “Tokyo.” The first music video in the series aired on August 8th and has set the tone for the series, garnering nearly half a million views in less than a week.

This weekly series pairs major artists with top Machinima directors to produceexclusive, original animated, game-based music videos that will world premiereon the Machinima YouTube Network (YouTube.com/Machinima). Machinima is bridging the gap between the musicians and the talented young directors and animators in Machinima’s network by proving them with current major artist licensed songs, such as “Tokyo,” to create their videos. In conjunction with the weekly music video premieres, on some weeks there will also be on-air interviews and gameplay videos with the music artists themselves.

For over 3 decades electronic music pioneer Paul Oakenfold has elevated and shaped an entire genre and remains one of the leading forces in the global music scene today. His most recent works have taken him from the DJ booth of the world’s hottest nightspots and festivals to the studio producing soundtracks forHollywood blockbuster movies. Paul has produced for megastars such as U2,Madonna and The Happy Mondays, as well as three acclaimed artist albums under his own name. He has remixed Michael JacksonThe Rolling Stones andJustin Timberlake and released over 20 DJ mix compilations. In recent years Paul has also been responsible for creating some of the most breathtaking film scores and cues for a long list of Hollywood blockbusters – including The Bourne Identity,Matrix ReloadedShrek 2Swordfish and Collateral. He has rightfully gained not 1 but 2 Grammy Nominations for his works. But his most anticipated release is yet to come. Paul Oakenfold’s newest artist album ‘Pop Killer’ is scheduled for imminent release featuring The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Gnarls BarkleyOne Republic andB.O.B.

Myoelectric is Dustin Valcalda and Justin Loebel. They have been a part of theMachinima family for a while and this latest music video opportunity was right up their alley. “I have a serious respect for the power of audio in a presentation. Finding the right track for a project can be a daunting task, but Paul Oakenfold’strack was awesome on the ears and a blast to edit with,” said Justin. Dustin agrees by saying “I’ve always been interested in using kick-ass songs in our videos, so to see that it is now becoming a reality is great. It’s a perfect opportunity to reach a larger audience and make more great content!” They both go on to explain that there’s a lot of talent pooled in the Machinima network, so it’s really exciting to see other industries now dipping into that pool to start developing a medium that has never been utilized. Since they’ve partnered, they’ve received contracts to work in studio with big name game developers like Ruffian Games, Treyarch and Codemasters. They are excited about more opportunities like this that allow creative Machinima talents to collaborate with well-known and respected artists to execute original video-game entertainment.

These exclusive tracks from acclaimed artists, paired with top Machinimadirectors, can easily achieve tremendous views, and then some. This series will open the door to many promotional, marketing and interactive opportunities the likes of which have been largely unavailable under the current promotional model for the music industry.

Machinima is the dominant video entertainment network for serious gamers around the world.  The number one entertainment channel on YouTube, Machinima served over 2 billion video views in 2010 alone, reaches over 73 million gamers monthly, and delivers over 700 million video views a month, and growing.  Machinima’s global content network features official publisher content, gameplay videos and original content, including over 20 original weekly shows, all aimed at the coveted 18 – 34 year old male demographic.  Machinima is fast-becoming a global phenomenon with an ability to capture a cultural sensibility and awareness among a next generation of entertainment consumers and marketers alike.

Michael S

"Mark Me Down" 

1. Mike Shiver remix

2. ReOrder Deep mix

3. Uberphat Dubstep remix

4. US Club mix

5. Mike Shiver dub mix

Exciting new signing to Perfecto Records, Chicago’s Michael S. brings a whole new meaning to the term diverse. The impact his material has had on the Perfecto team has been huge. Showing incredible talent both as a singer and songwriter here is an artist we want to help develop into a headliner of both our label and the international live circuit. Having grown up listening to the music of bands like The Beatles, Michael Jackson, and Journey his father taught him how to truly appreciate the beauty within great melodies and vocals.  

Those teachings clearly worked.

Distinctive, clean and powerful vocals combined with poignant, emotive lyrics and a strong melody, Michael’s debut single “Mark me Down” sets the stage for what’s to come in the future from this vibrant song writer. Having already shared the stage with the likes of Fall Out Boy, Hello Goodbye, and The Plain White T’s an eventual live show is also high on the priority list. 

A fresh and exciting new artist with such talent and passion, regardless of whether he is in the studio or on stage, we are truly thrilled to have Michael on board at Perfecto – bringing his unique sounds to the table that bridge the gap between Dance and Pop perfectly. 

With killer remixes from super hot producers Mike Shiver, ReOrder and Uberphat completing the package – this is another Summer anthem in the making from an artist we feel very proud to represent.

Enjoy.

Paul Oakenfold kicks off Ibiza Residency

 

DATES:

AUGUST 10th

AUGUST 17th

AUGUST 24th

AUGUST 31st

Massive Ibiza line-up with a summer-long festival of epic proportions. Gatecrasher takes over Wednesday nights in August at the world’s largest nightclub PRIVILEGE with a selection of electronic music’s most exciting global pioneers PAUL OAKENFOLD, DASH BERLIN, ROGER SHAH and MARCO V as weekly residents from the 3rd to the 31st of August 2011.

Paul Oakenfold
Paul Oakenfold is one of the true legends of dance music and remains one of the leading forces in the global music scene today.

Since pioneering the genre in Ibiza back in 1987, Paul has remained one of the scene’s leading ambassadors.  His high profile work with the likes of Madonna, U2 and The Happy Mondays has 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.

A life-changing break to Ibiza back in 1987 saw Paul discovering Balearic music in clubs such as Amnesia.  Inspired, he took those sounds back to the UK.  In the early 90’s Perfecto Records was born, releasing countless high profile releases and remixes in its path.  Holding residencies at Amnesia and Pacha in Ibiza, Paul also opened Ministry Of Sound in London and was their first resident.   

Dash Berlin
Dash Berlin has repeatedly been called ‘the fastest rising artist in Dance Music ’ and deservedly so according to his ever-growing global fan base and the acclaimed IDMA’s who recently nominated the ‘Flying Dutchman’ as ‘Best European DJ’ among some of the biggest names in dance music. After the international success of his first official mix compilation Dash decided to institutionalize his ‘United Destination’ brand as an annual concept. And the all-new ‘United Destination 2011’ certainly makes a convincing case for Dash Berlin, not only as a successful dance artist, but also as a truly skilled DJ, that keeps delivering beyond the hype that surrounds his energetic person.

MARCO V
Joining Oakenfold is fellow superstar DJ and Trance legend – Marco V, one of the most inventive, diverse and creative electronic music minds today. Through his very first releases he became the architect of tech-trance; a sound that went on to become a fully-fledged electronic music phenomena. Continually modifying and fine-tuning his style ever since, he has gone on to create numerous leading-edge dance classics - ‘Godd’, ‘Indicator’, ‘Echnalava’, ‘More Than A Life Away’ & ‘Coma Aid’ numbered among them. Behind the decks he has smashed nights in all the world’s farthest corners, played a near uncountable number of tent-pole events for the scene’s flagship club & festival brands. As a result of which he has spent the last 7 consecutive years inside the ranks of DJ Magazine’s Top 50. Into 2011 and Marco continues to innovate and push at the boundary edges including the launch of T.A.O. The Art Of) - his new multimedia concept. The “T.A.O. Sound” will cause a blistering heat on its debut Gatecrasher event with a DJ set full of Marco’s latest floorbombs and old-time favourite party tracks supported with an impressive light and video show!!

ROGER SHAH
Joining the duo will also be top DJ Roger Shah, clad in his trademark white, he is impossible to miss or mistake. Shah comes to the UK fresh from his success at Gatecrasher’s Global SoundSytem in Indonisia. Everyone knows Roger Shah. If not for his Balearic Trance music, then for his huge club hits like “Going Wrong” with Armin van Buuren and Chris Jones. On stage, clad in his trademark white, he is impossible to miss or mistake. Wireless keyboard in one hand, an ever-ready clutch of his own productions in the other, his live crowd-interactive performances have brought a new apex experience for club and festival goers worldwide. In 2010 this unequalled approach was reflected in DJ Magazine’s Top 100 chart, where he moved up from his ‘08

Marcel Woods
Marcel’s mind-blowing mix of raw and energetic dance music. Dance floors and festivals have fallen before him in swift succession. Global Gathering, Mysteryland, Dance Valley, Trance Energy, Gatecrasher Summer Sound System, Escape Into The Park, Planet Love and Sanctuary just in one summer run! And possibly more than anything else underlining Marcel’s diverse nature, 2008 saw
him become the only DJ ever to play the White AND Black Edition Sensation parties in one season.

Sean Tyas
A New York native now residing in Switzerland, Sean Tyas is one of the brightest new star to emerge in the trance scene in recent years years. He first broke onto the scene when Sander van Doorn selected him winner of the ‘Punk’d’ remix competition, leading to the Discover label to sign up his early releases such as ‘Lift’ which captured the imagination of the trance community and getting massive playlist support from the likes of Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, Paul van Dyk, Above & Beyond and Judge Jules.

  Paul Oakenfold 'Full Moon Party'

Paul Oakenfold “Full Moon Party”

[Perfecto Fluoro – 005]

As featured on his new mix album “Nevermind the Bollocks…here’s Paul Oakenfold”; “Full Moon Party” is the brand new single from Paul Oakenfold in his “Full on Fluoro” style that had been causing so much hype in recent months. Drawing influence from the Goa sound he pioneered once again “Full Moon Party” see’s Paul Oakenfold continuing to fly the flag of underground trance with this acid laced dance floor killer. A hard driving track with multiple layers of melody and acid intertwined this is sure to be a favourite with both psy and trance djs alike.  A seriously powerful production which has seen early support from Armin van Buuren off an early promo on ASOT, “Full Moon Party” is an underground anthem in the making that sets the tone for what’s to come from Paul Oakenfold on Perfecto Fluoro in the future.  Let’s dance!!!
