Evolution: Rock This by Paul van Dyk
“This track came about through a fairly unusual path too. I’m a big fan of this group from Liverpool called The Wombats. They had a new album called ‘This Modern Glitch’ due out and they asked if I could work on a remix for the first single ‘Tokyo’. Their label then had a change of heart, switched things around and opted for another track as a single instead. I was in the studio trying to work this out, trying to make something of this other track – which funnily enough was called ‘Techno Fan’! – and it just didn’t seem to be working. I got so frustrated in a way and needed to do something to release the musical pressure. That ‘release’ resulted in ‘Rock This’! It was kind of like an outpouring of artistic frustration!”
