Raising the curtain not just on a new season, but Mission: Guiding Light – the advance guard tour for his hotly-anticipated 2020 LP – Paul van Dyk serves that trance justice again.
Following in the wake of ‘Galaxy’ – September’s Vini Vici-collaborating walk on the Psy-side, ‘Parallel Dimension’ swings back around to that instantaneously identifiable, classically floor-flaming PvD sonic.
For the track, Paul’s been joined at the mixing desk by a producer who may be a new name to some. Elated’s Graeme Knapp arrived on the trance reservation a couple of years back and amongst those with their ear to the ground swiftly started to built a reputation for himself. A number of his early releases found their way to Paul and after some positive-noise-type feedback the Canadian reached out.
What they’ve collectively worked up is an autumn-beating trance thunderbolt, which places clubbers heartstrings square between the crosshairs, whilst simultaneously planting their feet on the floor. With a no-prisoners tempo, hallmark PvD bass, from-within chords, awww-inspiring sub-melodies and kiss-the-sky mainline, Parallel Dimension’s got the lot. Your first taste of what ‘Guiding Light’ will bring drops today.
