This year, Paul van Dyk released the third in his popular 'Politics Of Dancing' LP series. A risky move, considering number two came out way back in '05, but van Dyk is actually stronger than ever over a decade later. “A great number of things had changed,” says Paul, about the gap between then and now. “The way we make and produce music, how we promote and release music and, of course, how we consume it,” he says.
The producer/DJ also staged his fourth We Are One Festival in Berlin earlier this year — a day and night party that kicks off on Rummelsburg Beach on the banks of the River Spree.
Finally, van Dyk tips his 2016 set at Aquanario as one of his best ever, saying, “I performed new versions of many of my tracks choreographed to a water, light, laser and firework show — backed by singers and an orchestra.” Impressive!
