Gatecrasher catch up with Paul van Dyk ahead of his exclusive 6 hour set this Saturday at Gatecrasher Birmingham


1. You have a long and famous history with Gatecrasher - what has been your most memorable gig for them so far?

I did a very special 6 hours set at the original venue in Sheffield, which became somewhat legendary, I guess. Because of the length, I had the chance to present a wide range of electronic music to one of the most passionate crowds ever.

2. How have music and clubs changed in ten years for you?

Generally I don't look back, I look forward. Electronic music developed from a small subculture into the biggest music culture in the world. You can go wherever you want in the world and you will find people who love this music. I don't have to like everything that is going on. What I think electronic music should be like, you can hear in my weekly VONIC session podcast or in my VONIC session show.


3. As someone at the top of their game, do you still have aspirations musically or otherwise that you've yet to fulfil?

I am working on my next album right now, and it is always a challenge to fulfil my own expectation of what I do.

4. How would you describe the PVD sound and live experience to new clubbers thinking of seeing you at a Gatecrasher Event?

Well, I think electronic music has always been about breaking the boundaries, not only creatively but also in using the latest technology. When I play, I don't use vinyl or cd's anymore. I have two computers set-up on stage, that are synced with each other. And I have a custom made mixer Allen & Heath, a VCM 600 controller by Vestax and midi keyboards on stage. That enables me to be completely free in how I interact with my audience. It is more like playing live and a combination of both - my passion as a DJ and my passion as a musician and producer, it is very intense.


5. What projects are you currently working on production or otherwise?

We have 10 years of VANDIT records to celebrate this year, so I am touring a lot. Otherwise I am busy working on my new album.

6. What should we tell Birmingham clubland to expect from your visit here on Saturday?

Full on me!!! I love what I do and I think this is coming across and I am looking forward to come back to Birmingham, soon.

7. Tell us about the new Gatecrasher Album

It consists of three cd's that include some of the biggest tracks of all time, tracks that are huge right now and tracks that will be. I mixed it as I would do in a club. So it is all about the flow and to have a good time listening or even dancing to it. I hope you enjoy! :-)

Thanks Paul and we will see you Saturday
