Biography

In 1999, the readers of the English magazine “DJ” voted Paul as the “Best Music Maker”, ahead of DJ legends Fatboy Slim (2) and Paul Oakenfold (3). Then at the 1999 Music Awards in London he received the “Best international DJ award”. The “Ministry of Sound” Magazine elected him as the “Best international DJ”, and his regular 6 hour set at “Gatecrasher” was voted as the “second best club night ever” by the readers of the English magazine “Muzic”.

His hit singles “Another Way and Tell me why” and “We are alive” spent serveral weeks at number 1 in the German Dance - charts, and also reached number 15, 13 & 7 in the UK Sales - charts. He continuously moved-up in “DJ Magazine’s” annual list of the “Top 100 DJ´s worldwide”, then in September 1999, “Mixmag” Magazine elected him as “Man of the year” and “Muzik Magazine” named him as “Leader of the Trance Nation”.

Paul van Dyk himself, however, isn’t so happy with the label of “Leader”.

“I wouldn’t call myself a leader” he says. “Of course a man making music is (literally) standing in publicity. But the main thing for me is the music. I don’t want to lead people, I want to tempt them, to create a new world for them, just for that very small moment when they are losing themselves in my music. I want to inspire them.

And this is from a man who regularly works both sides of the turntable, as recording artist and performing DJ.
