    Paul van Dyk – I Am Alive


    Guest

    Paul van Dyk - I Am AliveBridging the gap between “Stronger Together” – his late summer Beatport #1 and this month’s delivery of his eighth artist album, today Paul van Dyk serves “From Then On“s final single trailblazer.

    Operating on one level as a vintage slice of serotonin-homing, primetime van Dyk, “I Am Alive”s genesis does hold a deeper meaning for Paul.

    The track was the first song he recorded following his accident in the spring of last year. If, in that knowledge. you sense a degree more vitality running through its melodic arteries, perceive a touch more percussive skip to its step or hear just that bit more joie de vivre in its surrounding ether, well unlikely your feelings are deceiving you.

    Threaded throughout are seismically registering 4/4 kicks and charged LFO – both of which bring “I Am Alive” its substantial floor traction. Heartfelt harmonies induce deeper yet states of emotion, while further up the scale its pads & chords develop less apparent, more complex atmospheres. At its top end meanwhile, “I Am Alive”s sub & main melodies radiate nothing but outright “lust for life” optimism.

    Tracklist

    01 Paul van Dyk – I Am Alive

    A “release” for Paul in at least two senses of the word and a triumph of the human spirit no less, “I Am Alive” isn’t about survive… it’s about thrive. You can find it available to purchase through Beatport here from today.

      MasterClass, the premier online education platform, announced today that legendary DJ Armin van Buuren is teaching his first ever online class. The class is open for pre-enrollment starting today at www.masterclass.com/avb. Enrollment in the class is $90, or $180 per year for unlimited access to all new and existing MasterClasses with the All-Access Pass. Each enrollment option can also be given as a gift.
      Armin van Buuren, one of the most influential figures in the global dance scene, has topped the Billboard charts, attracted tens of millions of worldwide listeners to his weekly radioshow “A State of Trance,” and landed a record-setting five No. 1 DJ awards from DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs. The Grammy-nominated artist’s work has spanned major evolutions in dance music, from spinning with vinyl in small clubs to headlining global dance festivals.
      In his 20th year as an artist, van Buuren will share insights about what it takes to get established in the competitive and ever-changing business of dance music. Students will get an intimate look into the artist’s creative process as van Buuren creates a track from scratch specifically for his MasterClass. Aspiring producers will learn his pillars for becoming a world-class DJ—production, performance, and promotion. The class dives into the more technical aspects of producing, including mixing, arranging, and building dance-worthy drops.
      “Nowadays, to be a successful artist and DJ, it’s not enough to just know how to spin records. If you want to stand out, you need to make your own records, write music, and make remixes and mashups for your DJ sets. I’m truly excited to share my passion for producing music and DJing in my MasterClass,” said Armin van Buuren, MasterClass instructor. “It’s the first time I get to show you my secrets and tips, and everything I’ve learned in my twenty years in this business.”

       
      “Armin is an international icon of dance music. Despite his musical genius, he has stayed humble, hard-working, earnestly connected to his fans, and has never lost sight of the joy in his work. His passion for teaching is infectious. There really is an art and science to making people dance — it has to do with sculpting sound, mixing, and arranging songs for maximum impact — that’s Armin’s mastery, and he’s certainly one of the best to ever do it,” said David Rogier, CEO and Co-Founder of MasterClass.
      MasterClass is an online education company which provides classes from world-renowned instructors, making it possible for anyone to learn from the best. Each class offers a unique learning experience which includes video lessons from the instructor, interactive exercises, course materials, peer interaction, and more. All classes are available online for individual purchase at www.masterclass.com.
