Trance Syndicate

Paul Oakenfold doesn't want to conquer America anymore. He just wants to make people dance.

Then again, Oakenfold's been through much worse--he had to launch house music in England pretty much by his lonesome, after all--and two decades of deejaying have taught him that if he can't directly change other people's views, there's always much to be learned to make his own experience behind the tables that much better. "I finally feel really comfortable in terms of being in charge of everything: I have the experience, the knowledge I didn't have before," he says. "And I'm understanding that it's my role to balance between education--breaking new records and sounds--and entertainment--playing the tracks people want to hear. Trying to achieve that balance is what I've been working on for so long...

"And now I'm starting to really enjoy it."

Practice make Perfecto: Paul Oakenfold and his European label have sold millions of records overseas. In the United States, they're lucky to sell thousands.
