Paul van Dyk Reveals the Best Way to Stay Sane on the Road

Interview with the Trance legend, Paul van Dyk

The story of Grammy-nominated DJ, producer and scene-starter Paul van Dyk doesn’t begin in the ’91 techno incubator of Tresor, a ’95, Twilo-era Manhattan or the superclubs of Ibiza or London in 1997… It begins in 1985, in his mum’s kitchen. It was there in communist East Berlin that Paul van Dyk first caught the sounds of synthesised music coming over the radio waves from the West. It was among the most propitious of meetings and its effect, in shaping the course of 20+ years of electronic music history, difficult to overstate.

We caught up with Paul in an in-depth phone interview that took place last week in our Sydney office and fired away with questions on the making of his new album ‘The Politics of Dancing 3’, the secret behind having a successful career, the ‘ATLANTIS’ concept and he revealed the best way to stay sane on the road:

“Eat healthy and sleep as much as you can! That’s the only thing you can really do. I’m really passionate about what I do, so I always have the energy, the excitement to go on stage and play but you also need to kind of the get the surroundings right, in terms of getting enough sleep and try to eat healthy stuff.”
