Paul Van Dyk

Born in Eisenhüttenstadt, Brandenburg, Germany, he began his musical career at the Berlin club Turbine in 1991. When van Dyk was born, Eisenhüttenstadt was in the German Democratic Republic, so he had to use the smuggling of music cassettes from abroad to to be able to listen to the music of that time. It was then that Paul started mixing songs for his friends. When the Berlin Wall fell, Paul was able to flourish as a musician. He got started in Turbine. It was at this disco that a friend suggested that he keep mixing after hearing some of his mixes on cassette, and that's how he started his career. His first production was a collaboration with Cosmic Baby (using the nickname Visions of Shiva) that was released in 1992. The following year, Paul was able to gain some recognition, while working at the legendary nightclub, E-Werk in Berlin, for his remix of "Love Stimulation" by artist Humate. Paul released his first album in 1993, which was titled 45 RPM.

Around this time "PvD" commented: "When they deduced that I was German, it was too late!" In 1998 45RPM went on sale in the UK and reached number one in sales. Van Dyk produced the remix of "For an Angel" entitled "1998 E-Werk remix" to celebrate the popularity of 45RPM and in honor of the club that had already closed its doors by then. "For An Angel" is widely regarded as one of the first epic trance songs and captured the essence of the emerging genre, the melodic trance.

Thanks to the fame of "For an Angel", Paul became the resident DJ at the Gatecrasher Club nightclub (part of the Sheffield franchise). In a statement that surprised many, Paul declared his total rejection of drugs and while some hoped it would put him off his fan, the move caused several Gatecrasher regulars to start donning shirts with the "No Pills, Pure PvD" logo. "(No pills, Pure PvD).
