    Paul van Dyk “From Then On” In Berlin


    To celebrate the release of his eighth artist album, Paul van Dyk is set to bring fans a one-off, never-to-be-repeated live experience. One week ahead of ‘From Then On’s release, Paul will unite album preview & album retrospective in one extraordinary, unforgettable night of PvDism.

    Programmed exclusively for the night of Saturday October 14th, Paul’s extended set will passage from his earliest album moments to his most recent. “45rpm” to “From Then On”, and all points “Out There And Back” & “In Between”, it promises to be an event no self-respecting PvD fan will want to miss… or ever forget.

    From Then On’s Berlin show will take place at the city’s 1Straulau club. Perched on the picturesque banks of the River Spree and generations-deep in Berlin’s rich industrial history, its Factory-esque walls and vaulted attic roofs will provide the most atmospheric of settings for Paul to introduce his new album.

    Handpicked for its intimacy and exclusivity, capacity at 1Stralau is limited, thus early bird ticketing for fans is recommended. DJ support comes from fellow Berliner Chris Bekker, who’ll be bringing his inimitable prog-trance edge to proceedings. With tickets for the night on sale now, you can secure your entrance here, through Hekticket.de.

    In other news, hot from the “From Then On” front, pre-order activities for Paul’s new long-player begin this week. With it track-clip video freshly online, now’s the time to take a closer look at what ‘From Then On’ holds musically in store.

    Following “The Politics Of Dancing 3″s “City of Sound”, Paul & Jordan Suckley have regrouped in tenacious form for “The Code”. Similarly, Paul & Alex M.O.R.P.H. also take the chance to follow-up last year’s Beatport record-breaking chart topper “We Are” with the every bit as persuasive “Breaking Dawn”. Over the last 18 months, VANDIT’s talent pool has swelled again, coming to include many a fresh international production face. Among them are Goodgreef UK’s resident James Cottle, Namibia’s Pierre Pienaar, upcoming Italian maestro Emanuele Braveri and the Texan born-&-based Leroy Moreno. Stage by album stage, each artist takes their turn to collaborate with the VANDIT chief. Respectively the results range from the surging anthemia of “Vortex” & “Stronger Together”, the vocal enrichment of the Rebecca Louise Burch-sung “Escape Reality Tonight” and the apex-scaling elevation of the album’s title track (and most recent single) “From Then On”.

    In the most literal sense, the album overtures with “While You Were Gone”, PvD’s collaboration with Grammy nominated composer and celebrated concert pianist Vincent Corver. Given their shared time on Planet Trance, a PvD co-production with either M.I.K.E. Push or Fred Baker could be considered long overdue. Making up for lost time, all three production hands are put to the higher trance atmospheres of “Inhale”. Unaccompanied, Paul applies pedal-to-floor-metal with “I Am Alive” and the album’s opening single, “Touched By Heaven”. Whilst in closing, he delivers a work of cooler, more progressive natures, with its denouement number, “Safe Haven”.

    03 Touched By Heaven

    12 Close Call (w/ Tristan D)
    13 Escape Reality Tonight (w/ Emanuele Braveri ft. Rebecca Louise Burch)

    An album brilliantly acquitted over 14 tracks with typically PvD-ish verve, energy and futurism, “From Then On” is released on October 20th and is available to pre-order here.

      In the world of bass music, sets longer than two hours are basically unheard of (unless you play drum & bass, and then the cut off is around 6 hours, but even then, only if you’re Andy C). Still, in the world of marathon sets, no one can beat house and trance DJs. The nature of the music itself allows DJs to play around with singular tracks for a longer time, phasing in and out, teasing new tracks, bringing old tracks back in… there’s an art to it.
      In honor of ADE, and for the 836th episode of A State Of Trance, Armada boss Armin van Buuren is live streaming for 14 hours straight in what we have to assume at this point is a complete trance. (Heh, get it?)
      Other artists will also play during the stream, including Aly & Fila.
      Watch it all below!

      In what might just be the most hipster move ever made by a nightclub, Liquid Sky Berlin has banned the use of turntables and CDJs in the venue.
      Conscious that turntables and CDJs are two standard tools for electronic music performances, Liquid Sky has further described the recent restriction, stating that the newly imposed limitations stem not from a sense of “disrespect” towards DJs, but from the club’s deviation from “ordinary DJ culture.”
      “It’s [the ban] because we are not just another Berlin nightclub,” the post explains, “We support other formats/unique styles/different thinking/alternative tastes and emerging uses of both newer and older technology.”
      While turntables and CDJs are indefinitely expelled from Liquid Sky, the club will nevertheless embrace those that DJ with short wave radios, Nintendo Game Boys, and even “hacked home-fitness-trainers.”

      Over the past two decades, dance music pioneer Paul Kalkbrenner has become one of electronic music’s bonafide superstars, filling arenas with his live shows and headlining major festival’s worldwide On Friday, November 3rd, the Berlin-based producer will venture to Los Angeles to deliver a singular journey through the history of techno.
      The live show, titled “Back to the Future,” underscores a previous three-volume project in which Kalkbrenner personally curated over 5000 underground works in Berlin between 1987 and 1993. The compilation was meant to channel the freedom and abandon felt in the warehouses of East Berlin during this seminal period.
      By proxy, Kalkbrenner’s US debut will showcase the evolution of techno and rave culture throughout the late 80s and early 90s. “Back to the Future” marks a rare chance to witness one of electronic music’s true pioneers in an intimate setting, and become exposed to the music that shaped not only Berlin’s club culture, but the global techno landscape.
