Paul van Dyk



Matthias Paul (German: [maˈtiːas ˈpaʊ̯l]),[3][4] better known by his stage name Paul van Dyk (German: [fan ˈdʏk]; born 16 December 1971 in Eisenhüttenstadt, East Germany) is a German DJ, record producer and musician. One of the first true superstar DJs, van Dyk was the first artist to receive a Grammy Award nomination in the newly added category of Best Dance/Electronic album for his 2003 release Reflections.[5] He was named the World's number one DJ in both 2005 and 2006, something only few DJs have ever achieved.[6] He was the first ever DJ to be named number one by Mixmag in 2005. By 2008, he had sold over 3 million albums worldwide.[7]

A trance producer starting in the early 1990s, van Dyk quickly achieved popularity with his remix of "Love Stimulation" by Humate on the record label MFS in 1993[8] and with his hit single "For an Angel" but, in recent times, he no longer likes to describe his music as trance, but rather simply as electronic music.[9]

Van Dyk is currently the radio host of "Vonyc Sessions with Paul" on Dash Radio.
