About Ski Oakenfull

English DJ Dominic "Ski" Oakenfull began mixing his "dozing jazz" in the early '90s, playing into the trends of acid jazz and following the reign of Gilles Peterson. Formerly going by the moniker the K-Creative, Oakenfull signed to Peterson's Talkin' Loud label while still in high school. He had a brief stint with Raw Stylus, but fully absorbed the house scene while mixing things up with Talkin' Loud labelmates Galliano on the band's 1988 debut 4. As the '90s progressed, Oakenfull worked with various singer/songwriters including Valerie Etienne and completed several side projects like the compilation Sun Sun. By 1999, Oakenfull switched gears to fully focus on his debut, Life Changes. ~ MacKenzie Wilson
