  Paul van Dyk 9.6.00
by Shane Bailey

Venue: The Chamber - Atlanta, GA
Presented by: Vinyl Boy

Shane BaileyThe tradition of the scene becoming more watered down was apparent this coincidentally rainy night. But for whatever reason people came for, they left appeased as a result of one man's performance. Ringing in from Berlin, Germany, Paul van Dyk was the man responsible for the experience.

Before he took the decks though, perhaps Atlanta's most respected progressive house duo, Nasir + inc., opened for his highness. Their diverse set did not disappoint, but it suffered unfortunately due to the location of the speakers and monitor, in relation to where they were spinning. The echoing made it hard for them to hear the sound the crowd was actually hearing. They hung in there and finished the difficult set and changes were made in preparation for Paul's set as a result. It was unfortunate, but the Chamber was apparently trying to alleviate setup time by having the DJs in separate locations within the same room, to keep things on schedule, and you can't fault them for that.

The crowd was psyched to say the least when Paul stepped up on the main stage. He didn't jump into things and started from the ground up, building up to the sounds that everyone has grown to expect from PvD. Some of these more familiar tracks included three from his newest album release, Out There and Back. These songs, spread evenly throughout the set, all energized the crowd. "Pikes" was one of the first from the new album that he enticed the crowd with. "Another Way" followed soon after. Still something was missing...but not for long, for what has got to be one of his favorite tracks due to its presence in nearly every live set I've heard, "We are Alive" was mixed into his already impressive set. I must say that this set far exceeded his performance from his previous visit to Atlanta December 9, 1999, at The Warehouse. Three hours did not do him justice....
