Giant of the genre, Paul Oakenfold gives us a lesson in trance

As we wind down the Ministry of Sound Versus Campaign we thought we should leave the last word with a bona fide behemoth of each genre.

With our versus videos, the aim was to have a giant in each genre talk about the sound that made the biggest impact on them, and it doesn't get much bigger than having Paul Oakenfold in to talk about Trance.

Paul was instrumental in bringing Trance, or Goa as it was known then, to the UK. He's probably one of dance music's most recognisable name and he was one of the first ever 'superstar DJs'. He recently topped an underground DJ rich list and is responsible for creating the trance track that has without doubt reached the widest audience, in his iconic Big Brother theme tune.
