About Paul van Dyk
One of the most iconic DJs and producers in dance music history, Paul van Dyk has been synonymous with trance since the mid-'90s. With early productions like his 1993 remix of Humate's "Love Stimulation" and the 1994 classic "For an Angel," he blended minor-key melodies with ecstatic beats, helping to establish the progressive trance sound. As dance music increased in mainstream popularity, van Dyk became immensely successful, regularly selling out venues around the globe. Around 2000, van Dyk began collaborating with vocalists more frequently, resulting in his biggest pop hits, including the U.K. Top Ten-charting "Tell Me Why (The Riddle)" featuring Saint Etienne, 2004's Grammy-nominated Reflections, and remixes for Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Highly productive throughout the 2010s, he released albums such as 2012's Evolution and 2017's From Then On and remained an in-demand DJ.
