With a career that spans decades andincludes three Grammy noms, over 10 million in global record sales, and apioneering Las Vegas residency, Paul Oakenfold can basically do whatever hewants. This fall, the DJ is putting the weight of his career behind a musicalcause most personal to him: trance in America.

“The sound that’s being played atthe moment has these [aspects] that are very similar to trance,” Oakenfoldexplains. “But it seems that everyone’s playing the same tracks. I was lookinginto it a lot deeper and thinking what can you bring that’s different but alsoexciting young and new, introducing a sound that’s incredibly popular aroundthe world but not necessarily in America.”

Beginning in October, Oakenfold willlaunch North American club tour in support of a to-be-recorded album, “TranceMission,” a collection of re-worked trance classics from the ‘90s and early‘00s designed to appeal to diehards who remember the tunes the first timearound while also bringing new fans into the trance fold.

“We’re not talking about remixes,we’re talking about covers,” he explains, asserting that the classics he takeson won’t already be played out. “I don’t think people are crying out to hearanother remix of a trance classic. I have no intention of doing that and thatdoesn’t inspire me. I’m going to bring totally new production and new soundsand current technology rather than just going and taking an old track andremixing it.”

Oakenfold bemoans the repetitivenessin the current crop of remixers and compares it to the remixing trends of theheyday of trance ten years ago. Instead, he prefers the opportunities propercovers provide the listener.

“Look at Michael Bublé,” Oakenfoldproposes. “He takes classic Frank Sinatra, puts a twist to it, and the youngergeneration buys into it and they love it. I’m not comparing myself to MichaelBublé, I’m comparing the way you approach it. That’s the key to makingsomething work. That’s the key behind the tour.”

Working with a team of seasonedtrancers and producers, Oakenfold is still in the process of researching thecatalogs of dance music to find a variety of songs to re-work for the “TranceMission” album. Currently at about 50, he says only 10 will make the album.

Another part of the Trance Missiontour’s ethos is a refocus on the music itself. Playing small clubs and theaterson this tour, Oakenfold is skipping the big stage production and light showsthat have become standard at EDM shows in 2013. That’s not to say Oakenfold hasa problem with the North American EDM explosion.

“It’s the best play to be in theworld at the moment,” he says. “It’s very inspiring and it’s just gettingbigger.”

After the Trance Mission project,Oakenfold will focus his attentions on his long-awaited third artist album,“Pop Killer,” expected to include collaborations with El-P, Miguel and AzealiaBanks. He says his album won’t feature the “usual suspects” of guest vocalists,part of his ongoing quest to do something outside the box even as that box getsbigger and more popular.

“House music is pop music now,” hesays “On my last two albums, I was left of center, now we’re mainstream.”

The Trance Mission tour kicks off inOctober. The album is expected early 2014.
