Paul Oakenfold revisits classics for ‘Trance Mission’ album due June 20th
Plans for an upcoming studio album (known unreleased to be Pop Killer) are put on hold, for now, as Paul Oakenfold‘s next full-length offering will be an ode to trance. Going back in time for a cover album, Oakenfold remakes twelve classics including the likes of “Cafe Del Mar,” “Adagio For Strings,” and “Madagascar.” Aptly titled Trance Mission, the album will consist of two discs — the first being a mixed version, the second being remixes, unmixed — and will be released on June 20th.
“This album is called Trance Mission – because its filled with a selection of my favorite trance records from the last 25 years and it’s been a bloody mission to finish, but I like to think there’s something for every one of my fans – including those who see me as a trance DJ, those that see me more lined with house and those that know me for my background in film and score. Let’s cut to the chase – f*ck the boundaries, f*ck genres and the f*ck rules and regulations. Your Mission is to just listen.” – Paul Oakenfold
