The trance music legend, Mr. Paul van Dyk, returned to the city of Atlanta at Opera Nightclub on Friday, May 9th. This event had most of us trance lovers counting down the days to be put in a state of trance by the Grammy Award winner, Paul van Dyk. I was very humbled to finally be able to see the man who was one of the many reasons I fell in love with trance music so long ago. His set was beautiful, the crowd was full of life, and the night was definitely one that we won’t forget.
There is just something about the feeling you get when you experience Paul van Dyk live. There were smiling faces and happiness all over the venue as Paul van Dyk played his wonderfully crafted set. That is one of the great qualities of getting to experience Paul van Dyk live in that his sets just make you feel alive. His blend of classic trance hits, as well as some of the most recent trance tracks, kept the crowd energized all night. The crowd at Opera was amazing, and among the crowd was a group known as the Atlanta Trance Family. These guys had brought with them a really cool banner to show off their their name, Atlanta Trance Family. These trance lovers were very pleased to meet us and were nice enough to let us get a photo of their group.
Overall, the night went very well. Paul van Dyk live is not just another performance or a show to go to, it is an experience that you will never forget. The master of trance brought back a little bit of the classic sound of the old school trance style, along with playing some of the best in progressive trance. Some memorable tracks of the night was definitely when he played his classic, “Home,” and “I Don’t Deserve You.” Those two really energized the crowd and had everyone singing the lyrics loudly over the music, which was really cool to see. If you didn’t get a chance to experience Paul van Dyk for yourself, here is his latest recorded set at Ultra Music Festival in Miami for your listening pleasure; so you can hear why he is so incredible to see live.
