Bunkka is the debut studio album by English electronic musician and producer Paul Oakenfold, released under the name Oakenfold. It was released in 2002 under the Maverick label.

It is also Oakenfold's best selling album to date,[when?] with sales exceeding 1,000,000 copies worldwide.

In response to how his dance-focused audience would react to the album, Oakenfold said "I hope they realise that in any forms of music you need to push the boundaries. I've been inspired by all kinds of music, from hip-hop to guitars to dance, and hopefully the dance audience will understand that."[4] The album was released to mixed reviews.
