Who The Hell Is Paul van Dyk?

Who The Hell Is Paul van Dyk?


The following has absolutely nothing to do with football, nevertheless, in an effort to bring our readers a lighter hearted look on life, we bring you the following video.

We take music lovers along a 25-minute journey, many have not even experienced. If this is not your scene, look away now.

Chill out, have a beer and enjoy the history of dance...

'This lost classic, shot on 16mm in a wintry Berlin in 1993, explores the origins of the now monumentally massive German Trance and Dance music scene. With interviews with luminaries such as Dr Motte, Paul van Dyk, Laurent Garnier, Paul Browse, Mijk van Dijk and MFS label supremo Mr Mark Reeder this now legendary exploration into the underworld of what was the most significant force in driving dance music forward in the 20th century.'

'It contains rare early footage of the 1991 and 1993 Love Parade, and of the now bulldozed Mutoid Waste Company land, E-Werk and Tresor - Berlin's legendary (and now closed) clubs that started it all in the former East Berlin. Directed by Ben Hardyment, this documentary is imbued with an uplifting and extremely positive energy - there are rumours of a film sequel in the pipeline, but for now, sit back and enjoy 25 minutes of pure trance music history.'

Great find! I wish it was longer. I owe so much to the MFS label. When I was hearing Paul Van Dyk play back during this time he played techno, too. I remember hearing him play Rhythim is Rhythim's "Icon" in Gainesville one morning and it was great. I'm not in to what he does now, but will always appreciate him for opening the door. I remember soon after X-Mix 1 came out he was interviewed saying that his favorite band was New Order. It's interesting that Laurent Garnier is featured so much in this. As an American, it was his X-Mix 2 that turned me on to Detroit Techno. Then I read about how he dj'ed at the Hacienda. Trance then isn't the trance of now, but the sad thing is that then it was WAY better.

"Paul van Dyk ist der internationale Künstler im Bereich Elektronische Musik. Im September 2006 wird er für sein politisches und soziales Engagement mit dem Verdienstorden des Landes Berlin vom Regierenden Bürgermeister Klaus Wowereit geehrt - einen Monat später krönt ihn das englische DJ MAG zum zweiten Mal in Folge zum "World’s No. 1 DJ ". Die Liste seiner Auszeichnungen in den letzten Jahren scheint kaum ein Ende zu nehmen. Weltweit erhält er Preise als bester DJ bzw. Produzent und wird im Jahre 2005 überdies für den Grammy nominiert. 2007 gewinnt er bei den britischen Trance Awards in den Kategorien "Best Album" und "Best Label" und wird als "Best DJ" und "Best Producer" ausgezeichnet," his website says. He must be talking in a foreign language.

Translation: Paul van Dyk is an international artist in the sphere of electronic music. In September 2006 his music was honoured for its political and social commitment with the earnings/service medal of Land Berlin by the governing mayor Klaus Wowereit - one month later crowns it the English DJ LIKES for the second time in consequence to " World's No. 1 DJ ". The list of its honors in the last years seems to take hardly an end. It keeps prices world-wide as best DJ and/or producer and in the year 2005 besides for the Grammy is nominated. it wins 2007 with the British Trance Awards in the categories " Best Album" and " Best Label" and as one " Best DJ" and " Best Producer" distinguished
