Ski Oakenfull

This show was recorded on 29th December 2019

Here's the playlist:

"What a challenge to try to define my musical 'DNA' through a two hour selection of tracks! Still, it is a great honour to have been asked, and I have found it to be a very satisfying experience. I hope that the playlist works as an enjoyable listen as well as marking crucial points in the evolution of my musical appreciation. The hardest thing was knowing where to start and choosing what to miss out. I could have included artists such as Howard Jones, Depeche Mode & Tears for Fears who I loved as a teenager for example, but instead I tried to focus on tracks that had the biggest impact on me when I first discovered them and have subsequently become musical reference points for my own compositions.

Ryuichi Sakamoto with Gilles Peterson // 17-01-19

I was very honoured to be asked to select three Sakamoto tracks for this show and also talk a little bit about them. It was broadcast in 17th January 2019 to celebrate Ryuichi's 67th birthday.

DJ Mag August 2018

I was interviewed by DJ Mag earlier this year, and was really chuffed to see the article appear in the August issue. I discussed my deconstructions for Point Blank Music school, and how they have evolved over the last six years. I'm attaching a photo of the piece below which you can download.

This show was recorded on the 8th April 2018 with my good friend Tomo in Gifu, Japan. Hot on the heals of Tomo's fantastic YMO article in 'The Wire' magazine entitled 'A User's Guide to Yellow Magic Orchestra' (https://www.thewire.co.uk/issues/404), this radio show expands the YMO family to look at the work of Gen Hoshino.

Hoshino san is a true polymath, who is often seen as continuing Hosono's legacy.

Check out this recent book (in Japanese) written about both of them by Hoshino here: http://tinyurl.com/y73ms92s

Deer Shed Festival 2018

I'll be doing a live deconstruction in the Duckends tent at this year's Deer Shed Festival

Here's the blurb from the Loop website:

Ski Oakenfull likes making music so much he began making a career of it in 1991 with the band 'The K-Creative'. More recently his music production skills have turned him into a bit of a viral sensation, recording live deconstructions of popular tracks on Ableton such as this one of Daft Punk's Get Lucky.
