Paul Van Dyk’s upcoming album “From Then On” is slated to release on October 20, 2017. Paul will also debut Live Show Concept ‘AEON by Paul van Dyk’ NYC Sept 23rd PlayStation Theater.
From Then On marks a turning point in Paul’s life, an album born from a shift in perspective. The record was written while Paul was traveling across the globe, as he re-emerged from the rehabilitation process that followed his near-death accident in early 2016. These first few months of touring and playing saw Paul experience culture, music, politics and geography with a radically shifted viewpoint.
While the darkness of Paul’s personal suffering seemed mirrored in the turmoil of global events, Paul’s heightened awareness meant he also derived great joy from the simple acts he could perform himself, and a newfound appreciation for the small things in life. A sunset in Berlin, a walk through Central Park in New York – seemingly innocuous events became far more significant and in the everyday Paul started to notice and try to document the extraordinary.
Prior to the album, Paul van Dyk will debut a new live show concept, ‘AEON by Paul van Dyk’. AEON is an ancient theological word that roughly translates to ‘life & vitality’ – the over-arching themes behind both the new show concept and album. ‘AEON by Paul van Dyk’ signals the next live chapter – not just physically but also creatively – for one of electronic music’s most enduring and visionary artists.
‘AEON by Paul van Dyk’ is a continuation of Paul van Dyk’s long history of experimenting with live performance. Paul has always been more than a DJ, never content to press play, his performance set-up has always been geared to live, allowing him to improvise and compose on stage. This will further evolve with ‘AEON by Paul van Dyk’ where alongside his own new live-set-up, he’ll be joined on stage by two keyboardists.
‘I am incredibly excited to introduce ‘AEON by Paul van Dyk’ to my fans. Music has a distinct ability to take people away from their problems and relieve anxiety and stress, and this is the feeling we are trying to enhance with this new show concept. This intensified experience of sights, sounds and sensations will be our next level of entertainment. Paired with music of my upcoming album ‘From Then On’, it’s going to be a celebration of trance, life and unity. ’ – Paul van Dyk
From Then On will be released on Paul van Dyk’s label, VANDIT Records, on October 20th.
