The Lowdown Event: Paul Van Dyk When: Thursday 27 Where: Zero Gravity, Sky Dive Dubai Drop Zone, Dubai Marina
An expectant crowd greeted Paul Van Dyk when he took to the turntables not long after midnight. The German veteran DJ has always done things his own way and Thursday night was no execption. His set wasn’t about blowing away people’s eardrums with endless heavy bass lines and drops - what he did best was subtly fuse elements of trance – a live remix of hit ‘For an Angel’, a particular highlight – and progressive house flavours. No commercial-chart stuff here.
