‘Music Rescues Me’ – the album – is the ninth collection to be delivered by pioneering electronic musician, composer and performer, Paul van Dyk. Containing artistic collaborations with Alex M.O.R.P.H., Sue McLaren, Jordan Suckley, Plumb, Saad Ayub, Lostly and a host of other talents, December 7 will see its release.
Not for nothing is ‘Music Rescues Me’ the most swiftly followed-up-on PvD long-player (just 14 months separate it and the release of ‘From Then On’ in 2017). If ever “do today” was Paul’s guiding principle in ‘98 or ‘08, it goes a dozen times over in 2018. Stimulus driven by his recuperation from the now-well-documented events of spring 2016 has had the profoundest of effects on van Dyk’s life-view. That has been expressed most clearly through his professional work, taking the form of a tap-wide-open creative stream. Telegraphing Paul’s developmental, progressing and to-the-future outlook, it’s one that’s echoed by the vibrant state of the music scene in which he operates.
For the album, a number of last year’s co-producers have been invited back to the studio with Paul. Alex M.O.R.P.H., James Cottle, Jordan Suckley and Tristan D (under his new Delta One guise) are some of those who’ve returned to Berlin to write follow-up tracks. With even deeper roots in the PvD universe, there are also vocal contributions from Sue McLaren (‘Lights’/’We Come Together’) and Plumb (‘I Don’t Deserve You’).
With the album primed for release December 2018, Paul offers a final reading on ‘Music Rescues Me’s title.
