As well as playing a typically hectic tour schedule that took him to all corners of the globe, Paul van Dyk recently re-launched his VONYC Sessions Radio Show, designed and collaborated on his own boutique line with TOMS shoes, squeezed in winning MTV’s Chiuku Award, had a hit with Ummet Ozcan in the form of ‘Come With Me’ and undertook more Peace One Day duties by headlining the charity’s festival in The Hague.

“Peace in our time is my single greatest wish,” he says. “Through their global campaigns Peace One Day have done, and continue to do, truly outstanding work. Increasing peace around the planet on one day of the year and using it to bring medical aid and support in to some of the world’s most vulnerable is the most worthy of aims.”

Gig-wise it seems Paul is still in love with the good old stomping ground that is Ibiza. “Ultra Europe and the other nights I’ve played in Croatia in 2014 were fantastic, but each and every year Cream Ibiza continues to deliver 10 or more amazing nights.” As for the future, Paul is set to release his long-awaited third 'The Politics of Dancing' album in 2015.
