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.

Wow Consquistador EPIK TRANCE CHOON

Wow did not expect Oakenfold to back anytime soon with some real trance track I mean Trance sound this good has died with boring EDM. Old Oakenfold please we you back like the good old Transport and Global Underground days the days you were #1 DJ.

Like fine wine

Some things just go well together; such as fish and chips, peanut butter and jelly, and of course Oakey and trance! Paul has put together a rather refreshing mix that is more instrumental; with there only being 2 vocal tunes, and is rather upbeat. Very reminiscent of seeing Oakey live but with a more emphasis on trance! Recommend if you're not only a fan of Oakey but a fan of trance as well!
