EDITORS’ NOTES

UK trance pioneer Paul Oakenfold provides the spiritual soundtrack for Dreamstate, the euphoric trance party series from Insomniac. Oakey proves why he's been a rave favorite since day one with hard-driving cuts that dismiss the poppy, vocal-driven side of trance in favor of killer kick drums, death-defying breakdowns, and emotionally dramatic synth stabs. Kyau & Albert, Astrix, and Juno Reactor all make appearances, but it's Oakenfold's own cuts—like the sharply sensational "Shanghai Baby"—that show '90s-style instrumental trance is as moving as ever.
