PVD circa 1999-2002 was the best.

Out There And Back is his best album to date.

last time i saw paul van dyk was in...2004 i think. he played one of the last shows at club freedom in tempe. pretty good set. i remember him closing with chicane. i don't get the trance hate other than the typical crowd it brings; barring any major conflicts i'll probably check out pvd this year.

If Paul's set would resemble the first half of his '09 essential mix, I'd be thrilled to watch him...

Living Room - 'Easy Living' (Rockbox Records)
Aural Float - 'Dreamers Dream' (Elektrolux)
Trentemoller - 'Nightwalker' (Pokerflat)
Max Graham - 'Gone Before it Starts' (White Label)
Alexandre Savino - 'Beyond' (White Label)
Paul van Dyk - 'White Lies (Aural Float Remix)' (Newstate)
JFC - 'Rotating Minds' (Mikrolux)
ID - 'Silent Time' (ID)
Thomas Datt - 'Alone Chilled' (Flux Limited)
Trentemoeller - 'Miss You' (Pokerflat)
Dfuse & Hiratzka - 'Breath In' (Curvve)
Espresso Del Lago - 'Yeki/Mandarin Suite' (Mikrolux)
Water ft. Fay Lovski - 'Hold Me' (United)
Aural Float with Kim Sanders - 'Still Here' (Elektrolux)
Santiago Nino, DJ Ronxxx - 'Inside Me (Flawless Mix)' (Istmo)
Gat Decor - 'Passion' (Effective Recordings)

But he'll probably stick to trance and I'll get a break from the Sahara

PS, he was shit in 07, he'll be shit this year.

Respect for what he did for trance, he's washed up now.
But wait, maybe he'll play the 2012 mix of 4 an Angel

I dont care how much some will hate or how much people say he sucked in 07...I had a god damned blast in the Sahara during his set and so did every other fucker in that tent. Nuff said.

It just got overplayed to death. I don't hate Trance either, well yea a lot of it is cheesy as hell, but it's no where near as annoying as say Gabber, Happy Hardcore or Hardstyle. It's primary function seems to be drawing in people to EDM who lack familiarity with it, which also happened with Electro a few years ago. The Electro backlash has really just started but I'd say in about five years time it will be receiving nearly the same treatment as Trance does now.

I can't hate on PvD...I really enjoy his first 4-5 albums. Some of the stuff there still feels fresh over a decade later. Very relaxing.

oh, and...

You've never actually seen a pvd set have you? Not defending him, i dont like trance either but you obviously have no idea what the fuck you're talking about, his shit is fast high energy trance.

PVD NEEDS to revert to this style for his upcoming album and ditch the vocal garbage (unless he brings back St. Etienne haha)

I asked this in another PVD thread, but what is the likelihood We Are Alive will show up in his set list?

Actually, I have seen PVD. Twice at EDC, once at ETD POP, and once at Beyond Wonderland. You obviously dont know what you're talking about, so stfu.

the Grammy-nominated artist, globally acclaimed DJ/producer and audio architect has teamed with a major award-winning festival stage designer and light artist who has worked with Muse and Kanye West to create a fascinating surrounding for the music, and its creation has been an international undertaking. Over the last few months, VAN DYK and his creative team tested various key elements of the new presentation all over the world, including a completely sold-out show at Terminal 5 in New York City, all of which will culminate at Coachella.
