Now that the originals have been established, the time has come to let remixers get to work as VAN DYK’s evolution becomes an out-and-out revolution.  Handpicked by the man himself--from the ready-to-break to the firmly established--the remixes have been assembled and are out now as(R)EVOLUTION: THE REMIXES on VANDIT. The offering encompasses 16 fresh-off-the-desk reworkings from a full company of VAN DYK’s fellow production studionauts. Also included is the radio edit of “Such A Feeling” ft. Austin Leeds and vocalist Elijah King, a remake of the instrumental “Verano” that has never been available in North America before. A Grammy-nominated artist and globally acclaimed DJ, PAUL VAN DYK has been ranked the world’s No. 1 DJ by DJ Magazine’s “Top 100 DJs” poll two times, something less than a handful of DJs have ever achieved.  Other releases include VOLUME in 2009, an album of his best works to date—encompassing selections from his previous albums 45 RPM (1994), Seven Ways (1996), Out There And Back (2000), the Grammy-nominated Reflections (2003) and In Between (2007).  He continues to rank firmly in the Top 10 among electronic dance artists with over 868,000 Twitter followers and 2,500,000 Facebook fans.
