German DJ and Producer Paul Van Dyk is, simply put, a trance legend. His remixes back in the early 1990s were a big reason why the genre was able to evolve from a loosely-affiliated group of experimental projects into a legitimate musical form all its own.
As the years passed, Van Dyk’s popularity would only continue go grow, culminating in his being named World No.1 DJ in both 2005 and 2006. He has been on the World Top 10 DJs list since 1998, a longer tenure than anyone else.
For an Angel is his hit single from 1994. The original music video was filmed in the Riviera Maya in Mexico, and showcases a lot of the natural splendor of the region.
The original mix of For an Angel was a hit, but in 1998, Van Dyk reworked and remixed the song into the “E-Werk Club Mix,” which would go on to electrify dance clubs and solidify his reputation as one of the top names in electronic dance music. Have you listened to this trance classic?
