Leading up to July 4, this summer season is hitting the fast lane with a new Paul van Dyk single, "The Ocean," which teams him up with Russia's Arty.
Released July 2 via Beatport, the track (accompanied by mixes by Las Salinas and Eddie Bita) is just as deep and expansive as its title suggests, and is taken from Evolution (Vandit), PvD's acclaimed sixth studio album.
Paul van Dyk - The Ocean video:
Previous singles "Verano" roared and "Eternity" soared, but now dive deep into single #3 from legendary sound designer and all-around audiologist, Paul van Dyk. Together with one of the hottest young EDM talents to rise in recent years, he and Arty have crafted a musical work that is iridescent, mesmeric and über-inviting.
"I met Arty in Russia sometime in 2010 and we talked at that point about making music together." says PvD. "On 'The Ocean,' I was sent over some strings and sequence patterns, which I was really feeling. I then came back in with other elements and it turned into this big back-and-forth mechanism. We both felt very strong about the parts that had gone in and I then took it and began to properly produce it."
