One of the most influential names in dance music, Paul van Dyk returns to Zouk Genting on May 27 2023 bringing his brand new live event concept VENTURE X.
VENTURE X is an exciting new concept where the master DJ and curator sources from the finest trance, progressive house, and techno music available and brings it all together during one incredible evening.
Launched earlier this year in North America, the new concept is an evolution from Paul’s trademark shows featuring high energy awe inspiring sound played from his dazzling array of equipment on stage. van Dyk famously feeds off his fans, focusing on the improvisational art of the craft and editing tunes on the fly.
Familiar sounds are presented in an entirely new context, with a focus on embracing the unexpected. 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 is taking you on.
The show is unpredictable and unmissable and totally groundbreaking hence the name of the concept VENTURE X defined by Paul van Dyk.
“VENTURE X allows me to explore the width of what electronic music means to me, not just what people expect me to play. It allows me the space to play what I think people should really know, feel, and be exposed to,” van Dyk says.
“People know me for trance but there is so much more. VENTURE X allows me to do this as a musical concept because I won’t play 130 BPM straight through but rather a wider musical experience”.
“With most DJ sets I find you either have techno but missing the progressive sequence that takes you on a journey or you have a progressive sound that’s missing the punch. For me, that’s what it’s about, the drive, the push, the pull, and the memories that you create.”
The show at Zouk Genting on 27 May 2023 will be supported by resident DJ Neil as well as featuring two amazing stalwarts of the Malaysian electronic music scene: Simon Lee & Alvin as well as MisterAriffin.
Fans, both new and old, are most definitely in for a once in a lifetime treat of this debut concept. “For me, that’s what it’s about, the drive, the push, the pull, and the memories that you create” Paul van Dyk
The night takes place at Zouk Genting Empire Mainroom on May 27 from 10pm to 4am.
