LOUDER http://btprt.dj/1aMNMVb // Remixes out March 16 Pre-order The Politics Of Dancing 3 thepoliticsofdancing.com
Lest you hadn’t caught the thread, Collaborations, with a capital C are the name of the ‘POD3’ game. Following a string of album-initiating, floor-commanding singles, early March sees ‘Politics 3’ flip its fourth co-op card. Having already teamed up with Ummet Ozcan, Aly & Fila and others, ‘Louder’ finds Paul van Dyk sharing studio time with that most Balearically minded of men, Roger Shah. Adding to ‘Louder’s already exotic equation is Australian-born/Singapore-raised/Manhattan-based singer Daphne Khoo. Collectively the three have come up with something that’s as irrepressibly catchy and spirit-filled, as it is floor intoxicating.
A PvD/Roger Shah studio team-up has been a long discussed waiting-to-happen for the pair. Only through the genesis of ‘The Politics of Dancing 3’ though has that collaboration finally reached fruition. A departure from the trancier ethics of recent singles ‘Guardian’ & ‘Only In A Dream’, the Club Mix delivers something designed to light the upcoming festival season up brighter-than-bright. Daphne Khoo, a first season finalist on Singapore Idol and no stranger to the stage, is the songstress that brings ‘Louder’ its head-rush ebullience.
Adding some trance shades & grades to ‘Louder’s release, the first two remixes come courtesy of PvD’s VANDIT Records lieutenants Maarten de Jong & Ben Nicky. Netherlander de Jong hikes the furnace levels up to ‘big ‘n’ blistering’, distilling marching drums, tech-fried FX and rave-ish riffs into his mix. A keen balance of the harmonic and the euphoric, Ben Nicky ups ‘Louder’s uplift ante no end, giving it loads of warp, squelch and pitch wheel fury for good measure. Avalanching the atmosphere still further, Hungarians Myon & Shane 54 draw the worlds of house & trance creatively together with an M1 piano-led ride. Maximising the emotion of Daphne’s vocal, their Summer of Love Remix is less of the feel-good and more of the feel-great!

With “PvD//DVD_Global”, Paul van Dyk provides an intensive and breathtaking overview of his extraordinary musical career.The DVD presents 12 highlights chosen from Paul van Dyks own productions while also offering one previously unreleased track.
All tracks underwent a completely new mix in 5.1 Sound before Paul blended them in a 74 minutes DJ mix. An outstanding characteristic of this DVD is the top-class teamwork of everyone involved in the production process.
For the realization of this ambitious project, Paul chose the best partners he could find. The visual design was put at hand of Die Gestalten, one of the most renowned offices for communicative design in Germany. Die Gestalten have been specialising in DVD productions and motion graphics over the last few years and, for this DVD, filmed more than 40 hours of video footage around the globe. This material was then carefully dissected in tiny bits and pieces before it was cut together again in a complicated process. The sound design was handed over to Nucleus sound studio Berlin, who started to focus on 5.1 sound productions years ago and have acquired the leading position in this line of business. For the sound production of this DVD, a special event was organized at Berlin club Casino to record an authentic rave atmosphere, probably for the first time ever in live mixed 5.1 sound.
This project is a remarkable product for many reasons. First, it’s a powerful portrait of an artist, who travels and works all over the world without losing his modesty. This portrait is even more extraordinary, because it doesn’t focus on Paul’s persona in the first place, but the musician and fellow human being Paul van Dyk in the context of his music - and presents him in constant interaction with the global club and street culture he helped to create. The changing images offer an enthralling mixture of club and party cuts, opposing and complementing global impressions (urban surroundings, architecture, people from different continents, etc.). These other global impressions radiate the same energy and atmosphere as the rave impressions. The image worlds draw their emotive power from the interplay between their global imagery and Paul van Dyk operating as kind of a localizing factor. It is fascinating to discover that people in Tokyo show as much love for Paul’s music as they do in Miami, London, Bangkok or his hometown Berlin.
