Paul Van Dyk, 40, the German Superstar DJ and electronica pioneer, is speaking out against Madonna’s alleged drug references at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival last Spring. “How many people in this crowd have seen Molly?” asked Madonna as she took to the stage, presumably referring to the slang term for MDMA, an active chemical found in the rave fave drug ecstasy.
Grammy-nominated electronica guru Paul Van Dyk, 40, is a revered DJ and self-professed audio architect who is back after five years to present his anticipated sixth studio album, Evolution. With dozens of awards already under his belt, most notably for “Nothing But You” and “The Other Side,” Van Dyk is back in full force with elaborate tracks like “Eternity,” a collaboration with Owl City mastermind Adam Young.
Owl City, an electronic music project that was started up by Adam Young, has been in the mainstream for over four years. Young, a Minnesota native, had begun composing music in his parent’s basement and later uploaded his work onto his MySpace page.
