Paul Oakenfold featured on new Billy Idol remix compilation
Grammy-nominated legend Paul Oakenfold made an appearance on a new remix edition of Billy Idol’s Vital Idol compilation. It’s been over 30 years since the English superstar unveiled a series of dance remixes to his hit rock songs. Released in 1985 (1987 in the US), Vital Idol is credited for being the first remix compilation released by a rock artist, and now, it’s been “revitalized” by some of the hottest electronic acts to date.
Oakenfold’s edit of “One Breath Away” truly does the classic hit justice, adding in his recognizable disco flare with a house-driven bassline and melodic lead synths. Whether it’s filled with Billy Idol fans or just people that came to feel the rhythm, the energizing remix is guaranteed to move any dance floor. Other notable names on the record include RAC, The Crystal Method, Shiba San, and more. Oakenfold is currently on his “Generations World Tour Part 1,” with a string of US dates through December 2018.
