Paul van Dyk received a Grammy nomination in the new Best Electronic/Dance Album category for Reflections. PVD is a true leader of this genre which is finally attaining the recognition it deserves. Album samples here.
It is only fitting that Paul Van Dyk receive a Grammy nomination for the new Electronic category. His style and skills have been the inspiration for countless signed and underground producers and composers. Sincere congratulations for this honor as it is rightly deserved and expected.
Reflections was released by Mute/EMI in North America and features top Electronic/Dance hits “Time of Our Lives”, “Connected”, “Nothing but You”, and “Crush.” “Time of Our Lives” is the soundtrack for the current HBO/Cinemax trailer which has been running for the past 26 weeks. “Connected” became the soundtrack for the Motorola TV commercial for the C-350 telephone which was used in a world-wide campaign and which also featured Paul van Dyk as the person using the phone in the commercial.
Throughout this past year, van Dyk partnered with the “Rock the Vote” campaign to encourage his core audience (ages 18-30) to vote in this year’s election. The “Rock the Vote presents Paul Van Dyk Tour” marked the first time an electronic dance artist has been selected for a Rock the Vote tour. During this tour van Dyk performed in front of over 200,000 people across 36 tour events.
