Trance Legend Paul Van Dyk Releases New Album Ahead of 15 May Atlanta Show

Ahead of his 15 May 2015 show at Atlanta's famed Opera nightclub, Grammy award-winning producer, DJ, and visionary Paul van Dyk has finally unveiled the next edition in his critically acclaimed series - The Politics of Dancing 3.

Bringing his "Politics" concept into the new decade with a fresh new approach, van Dyk has turned the original compilation mix idea on its head to reflect the evolution of the way in which music is made today, focusing on artistic collaborations to form his long-awaited seventh artist album.

Taking shape over the course of the last three years, ‘The Politics of Dancing 3’ has been a labor of love that has seen Paul invite the talents of 23 producers, singers and song-writers into his studio, working alongside each other to create a truly flawless and defining album that simultaneously compliments and rivals its predecessors.

Speaking out about the development that has come as a result of a ten year hiatus from his ‘The Politics of Dancing’ series, Paul elaborates:

"The third Politics of Dancing’s sound is, to me, more about what I’m about than the first two albums even," Paul van Dyk said. "With them, I took music from other people and mixed, remixed and articulated it into the releases.

"Now we’re talking about tracks that I’ve written and co-written with other artists. So this is pretty much my idea of what electronic music should sound like now."

Some of van Dyk's Beatport chart-topping singles from The Politics of Dancing 3 including, "Come With Me," "Only In A Dream," "Guardian," and "Louder" are likely to be featured in his Atlanta set.

Tickets are still available here, and the new album, The Politics of Dancing 3, can be purchased on iTunes or Amazon.
