I'm super happy and excited to be opening for Paul Van Dyk in Helsinki in March because he is probably my biggest inspiration both musically and as a DJ.
His early years music from 1992-1994 was showing direction for the whole trance genre with MFS classics like Visions Of Shiva, Love Stimulation and For An Angel. Club Unity history then again is filled with Van Dyk classics from Flaming June to Binary Finary. Actually the main inspiration for the all night 6h sets at Unity was hearing Paul van Dyk play his extended sets at the legendary E-Werk in Berlin where sometime during the summer of 1995 I (as a 17 year of old young raver) first time properly understood the skill and dynamics of building the night and reading the crowd.
Also as a technical innovator the first ever DJ/VJ mix for X-Mix in 1992(!) and his DJ/Live hybrid sets with Ableton have been inspirational and pushing the DJ culture forward. And still every year sees new music from him which ends to my sets and his live gigs still have intense energy and a unique signature sound. All in all I'm sure I'll be super duper hyped up in late March at The Circus :) ... See MoreSee Less
