Fresh from throwing the highest party in the world on Mt. Everest, the legendary artist Paul Oakenfold and Insomniac’s dedicated trance brand, Dreamstate, teamed up to release a monumental 20-track compilation, Dreamstate Volume One. Acting as the brand ambassador and an influential figure in the trance space, Paul Oakenfold rigorously curated and mixed the perfect culmination of sounds that will prepare listeners for Dreamstate’s West Coast return this May. The compilation, which includes Paul’s built-for-the-occasion, “Dreamstate Theme”, is available to purchase and stream here.
Trance turned a corner on July 22, 2015 – the moment that Dreamstate began laying the foundation for its worldwide takeover, with tickets to its inaugural Southern California event selling out in less than four hours. Boasting a handful of unrivaled artists performing across one single stage at the NOS Events Center, Dreamstate was set to become an instant success. Following its inception in 2015, the brand took flight and gained momentum in the US and abroad. Soon Dreamstate was producing immersive events in New York, Australia, Mexico, and London. Now, just ahead of its debut North American city tour, Insomniac and Paul Oakenfold are thrilled to unveil Dreamstate’s latest development with its first capsule mix compilation.
Several generations deep in trance, who better to bring the series into focus than Paul Oakenfold? The legendary producer and chart-topping artist assembled the 20 essential tracks fans want to hear. Listeners are in line for rafter-blasters aplenty from more upliftingly inclined transmitters such as Alex M.O.R.P.H., M.I.K.E. Push, Jordan Suckley and Stoneface & Terminal. As psytrance is a personal favourite sound of Oakenfold’s, Dreamstate Volume One features sonic tonics from Astrix, Vini Vici, Ritmo, Liquid Soul and others. Snapping the locks off a trove of his own studio treasures, ‘Volume One’ righteously includes Paul’s event-heralding track, “Dreamstate Theme.”
Straight from his show at Dreamstate SF, Paul Oakenfold brings his Generations Tour to Exchange LA, presented by Dreamstate. Taking Los Angeles on a 30 years of music journey feat. a vinyl and digital three hour set this Friday 06/02. Buy tickets here.
