Oakenfold: Brit DJs should be proud

Paul Oakenfold has said that everyone wants to be a DJ these days.

The superstar DJ, who has enjoyed success since the early 1990s, told the Daily Star that Brits should be proud of their success.

Paul, 50, said: "A lot of producers who aren't DJs want to become DJs. It's become very popular and a lot of people want a piece of the pie.

"It's been a gold rush in the last couple of years but the cream will always rise to the top."

He added: "Us Brits should be proud because we started it and we were always the force to be reckoned with.

"UK dance now has a stronger foothold than ever. It's an exciting time and I want to be part of it."

Paul, who has a new album, Trance Mission, out, said: "I really felt that I needed to rediscover why I got into this in the first place."
