    Paul van Dyk hopes his horrific fall serves as a cautionary tale for the industry

    Up to this point, none of these guys involved picked up the phone to call me and ask me how I am. Look, legal stuff is one thing, but there is a moral thing to this as well,” he said. “If you come to my house and slip and break an arm, I will call you and see how you are doing. But with these guys, no way, it goes to tell you about the characters of the people involved.”

    yes paul, don't dance like a bellend on a surface not meant for standing to shit music.

    if he was playing a classic, this would never have happened

    no but pretty shitty no-one asked how he was, but they were probably more scared of bringing it up at all in case of legal ramifications. they must have thought it better to pretend it never happened i guess.

    This is bad stuff If you ask me, it's a little thing to call or sms :

    Despite being a mainstay of the influential music festival for many years before his fall, it’s unlikely that van Dyk will ever perform as part of A State of Trance again. His voice trembled with anger at the lack of support afforded by the festival’s organisers.



    “Up to this point, none of these guys involved picked up the phone to call me and ask me how I am. Look, legal stuff is one thing, but there is a moral thing to this as well,” he said. “If you come to my house and slip and break an arm, I will call you and see how you are doing. But with these guys, no way, it goes to tell you about the characters of the people involved.”
    A State of Trance has yet to respond to Van Dyke’s comments at ADE.

    I am not really that shocked. Extremely bad productions, soulless, non-caring. I guess not caring about other people fits this description.

    Paul is physically fine but mentally scared. I know the feeling but really, there are a bunch of toxic people in the Trance scene that have polluted this beautiful music of ours. I tell you, these people are ill and there is a sickness in the air.

    Although I'm not fond of his recent productions, I think it's bold to bash PvD in a thread about his fall.
    PvD is only 46. Get this man in a gym, give him a tough exercise regime, and he'll be back to being healthy in no time.

    Spot on! Thanks for simplifying it so effortlessly but it's true and you know it. Look at all the tracks from 2005, they all sound rich and full of energy and passion.
