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.
Listen to Paul Van Dyk recent release of Music Rescue Me with original song and PvD Club remix.
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.
As the owner of VANDIT Records, the last 15 years have seen Paul use his label dais to break the productions of those musically akin. In its early years, VANDIT released music by Armin van Buuren, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Agnelli & Nelson, Thrillseekers, Alex M.O.R.P.H., Nu-NRG and others. It’s lately focused on breaking newer talent, with acts like Chris Bekker, Las Salinas and Ben Nicky on its A&R roster.
Throughout his career, van Dyk has garnered in excess of 60 international awards for a myriad of activities. Among those are the illustrious Landesverdienstorden (Berlin’s Medal of Honour, given in recognition of his work towards social justice), a string of IDMA awards and Mixmag’s Man of the Year accolade. In 2014, he received MTV’s prestigious Chiuku award, previously
received by such artists as Shakira, Nelly Furtado, Eva Longoria and Morrissey.
In 2015, PvD won Mexico’s Lunas del Auditorio award for Best Electronic Music Live Artist.
