Oakenfold also recently released a new memoir, Ready Steady Go. Throughout the book, he details his journey into electronic music and the stories along the way, like his musical baptism in the 1980s and his life-changing trip to Ibiza.

Oakenfold's evolution through dance music has been nothing short of legendary. He's had unprecedented performances at the top of the base camp of Mount Everest and Stonehenge. In addition to his many milestones throughout his career in music, Oakenfold often talks about his struggle with dyslexia and how it has shaped him as a DJ and producer.
