Paul van Dyk drops new single ahead of special two-night takeover of SILO Brooklyn

New York City has always been a second home for world-renowned electronic music icon Paul van Dyk.

Despite being born and bred in Germany, PVD has played a major role in the development of the New York City electronic music scene since the days of his first US gig at the Limelight at the infamous early 90s club kid night, “Disco 2000.” From those early days, he went on to become a monthly resident at the internationally renowned NYC club Twilo, a flashpoint for the 90’s electronica explosion.

Paul van Dyk’s marathon sets are the stuff of legend and he returns to NYC December 8th and 9th with more than just a few tricks up his sleeve.

The December 8 show – FOR THE RECORD – will be focused on trance music, a journey through the genre’s finest tracks – past, present, and future – with a nod to van Dyk’s own timeless productions, and VANDIT classics, to the never before heard songs that he will be testing out to the NYC audience.  

The December 9 show is dedicated to van Dyk’s buzzed about VENTURE X concept. An exploration of the harder and darker side of electronic music. It’s an event where the master DJ and curator sources his selections from a variety of genres and blends it all together during one incredible evening.

Van Dyk famously feeds off his fans, focusing on the improvisational art of the craft and sequencing sounds on the fly. During a PVD set, familiar sounds are presented in an entirely new context. It’s that moment when you hear a snippet of a song you love but find your jaw dropping in awe over the direction and journey van Dyk takes you.

Those whetting their appetite for new music look no further than a groundbreaking new collaboration between Paul van Dyk and DJ Pierre —  ‘ACID TRAXXX.’ featured on the 3 track EP by the same name.

The track is a relentless, high-energy composition that blends the signature 303 basslines and squelchy synthesizers of acid house with uplifting melodies and driving beats.
