This month, living legend Paul Oakenfold is once again staking his claim to be the go-to international cultural ambassador for the dance music scene. This is a man that should need no introduction. Drawing on over two decades of experience, the UK-bred star has toured the world, produced records with massive success, ran labels, and generally been a badass shaman of sorts delivering an emotive selection of trance and dance cuts over the years to soundtrack the electronic music narrative. His latest project has been his Trance Mission—an album of re-imagined trance classics selectively covered and curated for a the current generation. Now with the album just a few days from release, we spoke to Oakenfold to get an idea of the objectives of this mission.
