Paul Van Dyk in Zouk KL | Music Rescues Me Tour this 1 November sees the German legend return to Kuala Lumpur in grand fashion.
Over the last 25 years, the term ‘electronic dance music’ and the name ‘Paul van Dyk’ have become all but synonymous. In that time the Berliner has pioneered sub-genres and through his kinetic on-stage performances, entertained untold millions. He’s written and produced certifiable genre anthems, smash albums and helmed one its most iconic labels. Selling out shows in every dance music-centric city on the planet, it’s seen him break more than his share of world records, earn himself legions of fans and win numerous accolades in the process.
The story of Grammy-nominated DJ, producer and scene-starter Paul van Dyk doesn’t begin in the 1991 techno incubator of Tresor, the 1995 Twilo-era Manhattan or the 1997 superclubs in Ibiza or London. It begins in 1985 and in his mom's kitchen. It was there in Communist East Berlin that Paul van Dyk first caught the sounds of synthesised music broadcast over the West's radio waves. It was among the most auspicious of meetings and its effect is difficult to overstate, having shaped the course of electronic music's history for close to 30 years now.
As the owner of VANDIT Records, the last 19 years has seen Paul use his label dais to break the productions of those musically akin. In its early years, VANDIT released music by Armin van Buuren, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Agnelli & Nelson, Thrillseekers, Alex M.O.R.P.H, Nu-NR and others. It’s lately focusing on breaking new talent, with acts like Chris Bekker, Las Salinas and Ben Nicky on it’s A&R roster. Throughout his career, he has garnered in excess of 60 international awards for a myriad of activities.
Chukiees & Whackboi and Boris Foong bring up the support for the night.
