Paul Oakenfold - Trance Mission

I’ve always wanted to make this album but how do you successfully go about making a collection of cover versions of a bunch of your all time favourite records? It’s a tough question that I’ve had going round my head for many years. Yes lots of people have made remixes of these songs but few have covered them. I guess you’re wondering what the difference is right? Well a remix uses parts from the original composition whereas a cover uses nothing except the notation of the original riff. Other than that – you begin with a blank canvas – and that is what appealed to me when I decided to begin work on Trance Mission back in Summer 2013. – Paul Oakenfold

The new album from Paul Oakenfold features his cover versions of classic trance tracks by Energy 52, Art of Trance, Grace, Fragma, Rank 1 and more. Trance Mission is a 2-disk album, the first one being a mixed version of all of Paul’s covers, and the second being unmixed remixes.
