Global Underground 007: Paul Oakenfold, New York is a DJ mix album in the Global Underground series, compiled and mixed by Paul Oakenfold. The mix is a retrospective look at a set played at Twilo in New York City.

Oakey’s triumphant return to GU – following the huge international success of his debut mix – was equally well received. This outing came during his 2-year reign at the top of DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJs Poll and off the back of his groundbreaking residency at Cream in Liverpool.

Paul had managed to take the superstar DJ concept to a whole new level, and had redefined what a club residency could be, each and every frenetic week. Meanwhile GU was now established as the most eagerly anticipated mix series in a crowded and competitive market. This CD was therefore pretty much the ultimate combination.

The music featured comes from a golden age for the kind of driving trance sounds that Paul made his forte. Many of the tracks are Cream Courtyard anthems from the previous 2 years, so the mix holds a special place in the hearts of many who worshipped him at Nation on those amazing Saturday nights.

The album was one of Oakenfold's most successful commercially as it reached number 12 in the UK Compilation Chart.
