As he puts it, I dont feel separated from the crowd. I think everyone knows that if I werent spinning discs, Id be down there in the crowd.
Van Dyk takes being part of the audience very seriously, which is why he never figures out what songs or beats hes going to play in a gig.
In his words, I have the first one or two tracks set but everything deals with the interaction. I look for smiles, happy faces and just feel the general vibes.
Van Dyk plans to use that philosophy to the fullest on August 18 and 19 when he makes his fourth annual appearance in New Yorks Central Park, which has become one of the most popular traditions in the ever-changing world of dance music.
