    Dunno if this old news (obviously Groovrider has been out for a while)
    but according to Mixmag Oakie had something to do with it.
    ''Oakie and Grooverider have been mates for years, but Paul is known to be equally pally with a number of big royal families in the gulf.
    After being told 'the rider' was released, a modest Paul Okenfold told Mixmag, ''I don't think I was entirely responsible but I did make a few calls. I phoned a friend of mine who is the nephew of one of the queens in the unted arab emirates. He said he'd see what he could do''
    ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Would be shame..the royals there are a gang.Pretending to be hardest muslim of all times but then travelling around the world, gambling and drinking lots of booze..but the inhabitants of their country are not even allowed to do shit.
