Paul Oakefold Perfecto and Perfecto II experiences Las Vegas

Late in the Summer of 2008 what started as a series of 26 residency shows became a long running multi year adventure that would change the future of Las Vegas clubbing forever. Sin City had not yet transformed into one of the world’s major dance music destinations, but with Perfecto, Oakenfold forged the template that would ultimately give way to megastar DJs making six figures and gracing billboards along the Vegas Strip.

The show Journey to Planet Perfecto at Rain nightclub was named after his label Perfecto Records. Perfecto Las Vegas was a partnership between award winning director Vello Virkhaus, N9NE Group and Paul Oakenfold. This was one of the first prominent electronic music DJ residencies in Las Vegas that helped launch the viability of the casino EDM boom, and fuel the VJ/DJ creative explosion in the night club industry. The Journey to Planet Perfecto and Perfecto II was created to take the audience to new alien worlds throughout the evening, starting with flight attendants coming into the audience to prepare for launch. The audio visual pieces were designed to be performed and mixed live off the first DVD turntables by Pioneer. The shows featured full audio visual system integration with visual art elements and multi-screen content. The experience took clubbing to a whole new level with props, performance artists, special effects, pyro, live cameras, Live VJ visuals, audio and video entertainment.

To create the experience our team developed the concept, filmed, modeled, designed, animated and performed this piece.
