Editorial Reviews

Of all the genres within electronic music, trance probably gets the worst rap. The music is guilty by association with the hippies that worship it with a religious-like fervor. And if executed poorly, its dramatic crescendos sound like pretentious, pompous pap. But a good trance DJ can save a string of the genre's records from falling down the drain of all-too-common gargantuan breakdowns and endless wind-ups. Paul Oakenfold might be the DJ to rescue trance from itself; Tranceport features a veritable who's who of trance records and producers--Sasha's remix of Gus Gus's "Purple," a few tracks from seminal trance producer Paul van Dyk, and the driving, impenetrable "Enervate" by Transa. Oakenfold's mixing is impeccably suited to trance: long, drawn-out bleeds of sound seep from one transcendent track to the next. --Tricia Romano

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one that started it all! September 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
As a devoted trance aficionado, I realize that Oakenfold is the equivalent of NSYNC and Britney Spears in terms of popularity in the electronic music world. I do not realize, however, why he gets this rep. When I bought this CD in 98, I had a few trance and house CD's, but I was not truly appreciating the genre, until this jewel.
This is honestly the most outstanding mix that I have ever heard. Oakenfold is scrutinized for his supposed lack of mixing skills, but I beg to differ. Track selections like "El Nino" and "Words" and "Cafe Del Mar" each evoke a different tone. This kind of melodic trance, unlike Sasha's or Christopher Lawrence's, is difficult to mix because of each track's distinct tone and energy. For those critics of Oakey's mixing, ask yourself, "How difficult is it to mix some of the most popular and melodic tracks of the 90's without making it seem like a cheesy Ibiza mix?" I know that the mixing is not on par with Sasha's or Lawrence's, but you have to judge mixing in context of the tracks. What always set Oakenfold apart, in my opinion, is the diversity of his track selection. For example, anyone who compares the New York Global Underground to any other GU will find it very difficult because he spins trance, ambient, drum and bass, and melodies all on the NY CD. This fact may help explain why his mixing seems subpar.
Tranceport I deserves 5 STARS because of the tone each track creates. In the end, the sum of the several distinct tones on this CD creates an uplifting mood. I used to listen to this CD while I worked in an Espresso Bar, and it not only kept me moving on my feet, but it also got me through long days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oakenfold brings European trance music to a U.S. audience November 12, 1998
Format:Audio CD
Fans of dj Paul Oakenfold and of European trance and progressive house dance music in general will recognize nearly all of the tracks on "Tranceport" as a bit on the old side. Energy 52's "Cafe Del Mar," for example, was on practically every dance compilation issued in 1997, while Three Drives' "Greece 2000" has been similarly ubiquitous this year. Consequently, those who might have expected something as cutting edge as Oakie's recent "Global Underground--New York" 2 cd mix will be disappointed in "Tranceport." However, it seems that this release is really aimed not at those already enamored of this lively and melodic musical genre, but at an American audience that heretofore has heard few, if any, of these tracks. Oakenfold is widely known and extremely popular in Great Britain, but he's practically unknown in the U.S. This release by Kinetic Records is aimed at providing a good, well-mixed sampling of this fabulous music, in hopes that the current hegemony within the U.S. of hoary, cliched alternative rock, overblown big beat electronica, repetitious rap, and the current darling, hip-hop, might somehow get nudged just a bit so that American listeners might consider embarking upon the kind of dance music excursion that Paul Oakenfold can offer. Who knows? Popular U.S. releases by John Digweed, Sasha, Nick Warren, Ian Ossia, and Dave Seamon just might be next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whatever you do, don't start with this July 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
First of all, I'm no expert. I have no insight into the world of trance music or its nuances. This is more of a Joe Lunchpail accidental discovery review. For what its worth.

Now, that said, please do take one bit of advice from me. DO NOT let Tranceport be your first exposure to trance music, or Paul Oakenfold for that matter. If you had never eaten food, would you begin with french pastry? If you had never driven a car, would you begin by racing grand prix? If you had never made love, would you first lay down with Sophia Loren? No, No, No a thousand times No!!

You see, I made that mistake. I busted my trance cherry with Tranceport, and now every other effort is just so much sand on the beach. Okay between your toes, yes, but nowhere near that crashing wave slapping cold refreshment upon sunbaked skin. It's all ruined to some degree and all I have left is one CD of solace. Paul Oakenfold - Tranceport.

Please, if you are new to trance, whatever you do, pass on this CD for now. Go browse Tiesto, Van Dyk, Lawrence, and even Kimball Collins. Only then will you be properly prepared for Tranceport.

You're welcome.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grab your trance pants! October 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you ever needed a guarantee that a dance compilation could be bought on the strength of a name without listening, then that guarantee would be Paul Oakenfold.
Not many people know the background of the man who is known in the UK clubland as 'GOD'. He has spent a life time in music and in his first role in A&R was responsible for signing artistes in the US such as Will Smith, Salt N Pepa and U2. Not a bad selection of artistes on your CV!
For those of you who pay homage to the god known as "Oakie" then this will be another addition to an increasing collection of quality trance cd's.
Oakie is the number one DJ on the planet and is far and away streets ahead in his ability to recognise what spins a clubber's whistle.
In this compilation, Tranceport will take you on a relatively commercial journey from popular tunes such as Greece 2000 and El Nino to the acid trance killers of Words by Paul Van Dyk and Gamemaster by Lost Tribe.
There is key to making good quality trance compilation albums, especially when they are of the single disc variety like Tranceport and Oakenfold demonstrates very clearly that he always delivers the goods.
It would be very easy for a DJ of Oakenfold's reputation to sell out and put his name to any cheese that a record company wanted to promote and this is where Tranceport differs.
The acid test is to buy a dance compilation offering the best trance tracks and listen to it and then immediately slap on an Oakenfold CD.
There is no comparison, Oakenfold is the son the Satan where dance music is concerned. He canes and extracts energy from tunes like no other.
On Tranceport we begin with easy going, fluffy, warm tunes which capture the essence of mainstream dance music that most will appreciate.
