Last year, through his sixth artist album, electronic music legend Paul van Dyk changed up perceptions of the PvD sound, wholesale.
Now that 'the originals' have been established, the time has come to let the remixers speak as Paul's evolution becomes an out-and-out revolution! Handpicked by the man himself – from the ready-to-break to the firmly established – the remix gathering has assembled. Let the reworks begin!
"Naturally, the original versions of EVOLUTION’s tracks were my and my co-producers visions. To-date, the singles have brought some wonderful, creative remixes with them – ones that blew me away when I heard them and which I played in-club and on the radio throughout 2012. They were the seeds for this album; now is the right time to push the boundaries of 'EVOLUTION' that bit further" – Paul van Dyk, February 2013
Alex M.O.R.P.H., Austin Leeds, Giuseppe Ottaviani, John O'Callaghan, Kyau & Albert, and Woody van Eyden are just a handful of van Dyk's fellow production studionauts who comprise 17 fresh-off-the-desk reworks. This is where evolution ends and full-scale revolution breaks out!
December 2012 van Dyk left his final musical mark on the year, with the release of the fourth instalment of the radio broadcast's mix annual. Featuring the cream of the audio it championed over the last 12 months, it includes tracks from Cosmic Gate, Orjan Nilsen, Tritonal, Judge Jules and of course much from the master himself… This is the year that was. This is 'VONYC Sessions 2012'.
"Life is busy for all of us. Whatever we do, there's seldom enough chance to think about what happened last month, let alone a whole year. For me the annual 'VONYC Sessions' provides that rarest of opportunities – a moment to look back and relive some truly great memories through the power of its best music. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed compiling and mixing it!" – Paul van Dyk, Berlin, November 2012
The ultimate CD for EDMophiles the world over, it's now available thorough all good musical retailers.
