Growing up in pre-reunification East Berlin, Matthias Paul became obsessed with music after illegally listening to verboten Western radio stations. Years later, now known by his pseudonym Paul Van Dyk, he ended up being a founding force behind trance – the distinctly European take on house and techno that upped the BPMs while washing the dancefloor in layer upon layer of operatic buildups. Now widely regarded as one of the most important DJs in history, Van Dyk plays Gilt this week in support of last year’s album, From Then On, his first since suffering a severe spinal injury from a 20-foot fall in 2016.
