Paul van Dyk is often described as one of the driving forces behind the popularization of dance music, with his world-renowned trance sound and packed-room appeal. The warrior of the genre has become one of the most in-demand acts on the circuit, with a one-a-kind live presence fit for both the darkest nightclubs and biggest arenas. Van Dyk last passed through Seattle in June of last year, and if that show was any indicator of what’s to come you can bet you’ll want to clear your Saturday calendar. To top it off, Foundation’s temporarily amped-up production closes out with this one last show. Lasers have been the name of the game this week, with both Caked Up and Cazzette/Syn Cole providing us with the full visual experience these last few days. With his Miami 2014 Compilation dropping today on Vandit Records, it comes to us just in time to get anyone not familiar with the trance legend caught up to speed. For you veterans of the scene, you know just why Paul van Dyk falls firmly in the “can’t miss” category.
