DJ Paul van Dyk Bio
The story of Grammy-nominated DJ, producer and scene-starter Paul van Dyk doesn’t begin in the 1991 techno incubator of Tresor, the 1995 Twilo-era Manhattan or the 1997 superclubs in Ibiza or London… It begins in 1985 and in his mom’s kitchen. It was there in Communist East Berlin that Paul van Dyk first caught the sounds of synthesised music broadcast over the West’s radio waves. It was among the most auspicious of meetings and its effect is difficult to overstate, having shaped the course of electronic music’s history for more than twenty years.
From the earliest ignition points of ‘For An Angel’, ‘Perfect Day’ and his ‘Age Of Love’ & ‘Love Stimulation’ remixes to 2015’s singles ‘Guardian’ & ‘Louder’, PvD’s gone from trance music’s standard-bearer to its most abiding & respected influence. He’s been deemed a ‘musical pioneer’ throughout his career with designations ranging from ‘originator’ to ‘icon’ and descriptions including ‘humanitarian’, ‘pacifist’ and ‘altruist’.
Onstage: A performer with a natural and instinctive stage touch, Paul circles the globe 16 times a year, entertaining club and festivalgoers numbered in the millions. On Rio de Janeiro’s Barra Beach during the 2008 New Year’s celebrations, he performed to an unprecedented (and then record-setting) audience totalling nearly 1.5 million people. Over the last five years, Paul has moved away from being a conventional ‘mixing-two-tracks’ DJ towards creating a hybridized live-on-stage, concert-like approach to his shows.
2016 marks the 17th year for PvD’s shows at Cream Amnesia in Ibiza, constituting one of club history’s longest-standing residencies. In 2010, van Dyk commemorated the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and staged the We Are One event at the O2 World Berlin Arena which drew a 17,000-strong crowd and featured Armin van Buuren, The Blueman Group and Underworld on the bill. van Dyk has since hosted We Are One day-long outdoor festivals in 2013 and 2014 at the city’s historic Zitadelle Spandau. The 2015 edition featured a sunset-to-sunrise concept at Rummelsburg, a unique beach location in Berlin.
The Musician: As a music producer, Paul’s achieved comparable success to that of his onstage career. In 1994, he produced ‘For An Angel’, a track hailed by Mixmag as the 8th Greatest Dance Track of All Time two decades after it was recorded. In 1997, he remixed ‘Age of Love’ – a record that also regularly tops electronic music’s greatest-ever lists. The UK’s DJ Mag described PvD’s ‘Guardian’ release as “a surprising, listen-without-prejudice milestone”, rating it 9.5/10. ‘Come With Me’ – the anthem for 2014’s We Are One Festival (recorded alongside Ummet Ozcan) met similar praise from Mixmag. The electronic music bible said the track had “natural note arrangements”, featured “straight-to-the-heart-pianos” and (giving it 9/10) a “lightning strike of a riff”.
After a brief residence in Hamburg, van Dyk returned to Berlin at the start of 1991. He made his first behind-decks appearance in March that year during the opening month of the soon-to-be-illustrious Tresor. From there, Paul began to build an onstage and studio career which, by 1997, saw him reach dance music’s highest echelon. As the twin phenomena of superclubs and the DJ-as-a-Rock-Star arrived, he found himself not only synonymous with them, but he was elevated as a figurehead for the trance scene at large. van Dyk has since held sway over floors in every dance music-speaking country in the world. He holds the record for the longest unbroken run inside the ranks of the world’s Top 100 DJs chart; has twice reached the no.1 position and in 2013 was aggregated, vote-for-vote, year-for-year as the poll’s single most successful and enduring DJ.
