The December 9 Show
The December 9 show is dedicated to van Dyk’s much talked about VENTURE X concept. It explores the harder and darker side of electronic music. It is an event where the master DJ and curator sources from various electronic music genres. The trance icon will bring 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. Familiar sounds are presented in an entirely new context, focusing on embracing the unexpected. It is 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. It is unpredictable! It is unmissable! It is VENTURE X, defined by Paul van Dyk!
Those whetting their appetite for new music look no further than a groundbreaking new collaboration between Paul van Dyk and DJ Pierre (also known as PHUTURE) entitled ‘ACID TRAXXX’. 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. The track has already generated immense anticipation within the electronic music community and is expected to be a highlight of both artists’ live sets. This monumental collaboration is available now exclusively through VANDIT Alternative as a download and on vinyl as part of the three-track ACID TRAXXX EP.
About Paul Van Dyk & His NYC Connection
New York City has always been a second home for world-renowned electronic music icon Paul van Dyk. The German maestro has played a major part in the development of the New York City electronic music scene. It dates back to the days of his first US gig (and residency) at the Limelight. It was at the infamous early 90s club kid night, “Disco 2000” here. He went on to become a monthly resident at the internationally renowned NYC club Twilo. It was a flashpoint for the 90’s electronica explosion. His marathon sets are the stuff of legend. The four walls of a club couldn’t contain van Dyk’s dynamism. In 2002, he became the first DJ to take over Central Park’s Summer Stage. He presented one of the most memorable electronic music experiences imaginable from the big city Oasis. This annual end-of-summer event attracted fans from all over the world!
