Iconic dance music producer Paul Oakenfold has curated an exclusive playlist ahead of his performance at Dreamstate 2022.

Ahead of this weekend's return of the SoCal trance music festival, Oakenfold, one of the genre's pioneering figures, is sharing a number of his favorite classics. The playlist features an array of festival-ready anthems from BT, Schiller and Chakra, among others, as well as cuts from Oakenfold's influential Perfecto label.

Check out the full playlist and its uplifting soundscapes below.

Earlier this year Oakenfold released his 17-track album, Shine On, wherein he collaborated with ZHU, Aloe Blacc, Luis Fonsi, Benny Benassi, Cee Lo Green and more. The album took four years to complete. He just finished up his North American tour, which included stops at the legendary Madison Square Garden and Hollywood Bowl.
