Very few producers can lay claim to being one of the forefathers of a genre – Oberon is one of these producers...
During the 1990’s, he championed the sound through both DJ sets and productions, which fused the harder-edge of Techno with the melodic-side of Trance.
Fast-forward several years, the sound we now refer to as Tech-Trance is as popular as ever, with the UK label Discover Dark (of
which Oberon is the head of A&R) being at the forefront of the scene.
‘Music for Life’ is the culmination of 20 years at the cutting edge of the underground scene featuring over 20 tracks spanning across the
past two decades.
His first release on Aura Surround Sounds in 1994 with collaborator John ‘Quivver’ Graham kick-started what would become an unstoppable series of productions. Throughout the next 20 years, he went on to have more than 30 vinyl releases both as a solo artist and a collaborator with artists such as Nuw Idol, Paul Harding and Dave Randall.
His releases have featured on the turntables, playlists and compilations of the cream of the underground scene including Paul Oakenfold, Talla 2XLC, Christopher Lawrence and Tony De Vit to name just a few.
A successful DJ also by his own right, Oberon has graced the decks of many a club over the years having played in 20 countries and held residencies at some of London's biggest trance events: Escape From Samsara (The Fridge), Pendragon, Antiworld, and Logic; Ripsnorter (Bristol), Planet Zogg (Sheffield) and a three year stint at Magic, the largest trance night in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
As well as being a fantastic album, Music for Life is an insight into 20 years of groundbreaking musical production.
