Arguably the most talented Trance music producer and DJ in the world. He was voted world's #1 DJ for 2005 by DJ Mag, dethroning the former hat-trick #1, Tiesto.
Born in East Berlin, Paul van Dyk (or PvD, as he is affectionately known among Trance lovers) has been spinning and recording for over a decade, and recurrently sells out stadiums and/or clubs all across the world. He is commonly referred to as "The Godfather of Trance" by electronic music veterans.
The author of this definition worships Paul van Dyk and the ground he walks on. #1 DJ? Most definitely!
Notable CD releases include Seven Ways, Out There and Back, The Politics of Dancing (1 & 2), and Reflections.
One of the most successful djs the world has ever seen, he states he is a creator of "electronic music" not pinning himself down to just one genre.
His Trance days were when he was at his best with releases like, Forbidden fruit and the mega hit 'For an Angel', which is still seen as one of the best trance songs ever, for me, it is simply the ultimate trance anthem.
He seems to have drifted away slightly from trance, and more into the dance industry, this is a shame for trance fans.
He seems to of been overtaken by many other Djs nowadays, but the man is still a living legend, and i wouldnt be surprised if he were to do something special that will catapult him back into the trance industry and blow the other Djs away.
We shouldnt lose faith in Paul Van dyk, he will return.
