Paul van Dyk & Cream Ibiza present The Ibiza Sunset Cruise on August 1st 2013

Paul van Dyk & Cream Ibiza present The Ibiza Sunset Cruise on August 1st 2013The culmination of last year’s PvD boat party saw dance master & beat commander Paul van Dyk rock the good ship Cream Ibiza and go from ‘decks to deck’, crowd-surfing the length of the ship. Now, one year later, the uniform is washed, pressed (and back to pristine white), the captain’s cap’s been knocked back into its (almost) original shape, and the gold braid’s been stapled back firmly into place…just in time! 
As the Ibiza 2013 season goes mainline, PvD steps aboard again August 1st.

As part of the clubbing institution’s birthday celebrations, Cream Ibiza boat party weighs anchor from San Antonio harbour at 18.00pm on August 1st and sets sail towards the mystical, magnetic rock of Es Vedra.

Soundtracked by the music from Paul van Dyk’s forthcoming, hotly-anticipated ‘Politics of Dancing 3’ album, the boat will cruise eastwards around the ancient rock quarry of Atlantis – a place of high reverence for hippy Ibiza. As the sun begins to slip beneath the Med waves, PvD will pay musical homage to the legendary Ibiza sunset.

COSMIC GATE present CRUSHED – the set-request standing order

COSMIC GATE present CRUSHED - the set-request standing orderWith ‘Storm Chaser’ – their first single post the release of the ‘Wake Your Mind’ album – still raising big room temperatures globally, EDM cosmonauts Nic Chagall and Bossi are poised to send the Fahrenheit flying again. Making its first appearance on their Trance Nation mix-comp album in 2012, ‘Crushed’ quickly became a set-request standing order for crowds at C.G. gigs. Now, with its anthem credentials already well advanced, its long awaited official release is close at hand… 

Beating the remix path for the track, Comic Gate have handed ‘Crushed’s keys to underground Dutch heroes Rafaël Frost and Mark Sixma.

Premiered on Corsten’s Countdown 313, Rafaël Frost crushes in both harmonic shades and electro aspects to the frontend of his version. He builds the boom-factor with big concussive tech-trance sequences; allows the pitch wheel to climb high-rise high, and with a final flourish serves ‘Crushed’s big stabbed anthemic mainline.

Armin meanwhile has been all over the Mark Sixma’s mix, champing it on ASOT618 and619. Sixma super-charges his rework with striking rimshot percussion, festival-revving EDM FX and some seismic bass and drums. The Tilburg-based producer masterfully sets up ‘Crushed’ harmonic/euphoric interchange with some crowd-flaming modulation lines, pulling off a dazzling, head-spin top-of-the-drop moment.

Paul Van Dyk meets Verdi at the 2013 Bavarian Opera Festival

Paul Van Dyk meets Verdi at the 2013 Bavarian Opera FestivalAs one of the most talked about concerts of this year’s internationally renowned Bavarian Opera Festival, EDM trailblazer Paul van Dyk prepares to cross another musical gulf. In the grand surrounds of the Munich National Theatre, as part of the show, he will electronically reinterpret some of the most celebrated works of Giuseppe Verdi, one of the most revered operatic composers of all time. Additionally, van Dyk will also be showcasing music from his highly anticipated seventh artist album ‘The Politics of Dancing 3’.

Hot off the back of his We Are One Festival last weekend, Paul van Dyk is set to continue his extraordinary summer of staging boundary defying musical events in astounding surrounds. Stepping off the We Are One stage, in the historic renaissance setting of Berlin’s Zitadelle Spandau, the electronic music supremo gave more details of his next bold step… 

“When I decided that merging electronic music with the operatic realm was a concept I wanted to pursue”, says van Dyk, “there was one composer who I was instinctively certain would be ripe for reinterpretation. One that I knew would easily sustain the substantial transitional leap required. Verdi’s music is a wonderful mix of melodrama and actual drama, driven by real emotion – all elements I seek to put into my music. I anticipate this recital will be a once in a lifetime experience – the only time that Verdi’s music and my own will share the same set-list. I’m looking forward to the challenge of it immensely. I hope to see as many forward-thinking dance music fans as opera devotees there!”
