Panorama Productions does it again. It seems like every time I go to Insomnia on Saturday night for Glow, I have the best time of my clubbing experience. This night was long been awaited for since Paul Van Dyk caught a nasty case of food poison and had to cancel his last show at Glow. The night started off at Café Asia for the Tranceaddict meet up witch was a great turn out. It gave everybody a chance to meet one another and get ready for a long night of nothing but dancing. I arrived at Glow around 9:30 to find already a long line waiting to see the number 1 Trance DJ in the world this year. It was great to see everybody come out this night showing so much support. There were lots of people wearing Vandit T-shirts and even Paul Van Dyk shirts that were home made. People had their records and cd covers ready to get autographed. Security was doing a good job of keeping the line moving steady and gaining entrance to the club was no problem at all.
Once inside, Dan Sampson was opening up with a spectacular house set witch set the groove as the dance floor slowly filled up. Dan actually came down onto the dance floor after his set and hung out with us for awhile so big props to Dan. Edgar V came on a spun a surprising progressive set that kept everybody dancing. By 1:00, the dance floor was really packed and everybody was claiming their spots waiting for Paul to come on. Around 1:15 people started getting pumped and you could hear everybody chanting “Paul Van Dyk, Paul Van Dyk!!!” Edgar was loving it. Finally around 1:45, Paul shows his face for the first time and the crowd went nuts. First track was DJ Icey – Beyond witch was the first time I've heard that track. Just looking around you could tell this crowd was really into Paul's set from the beginning. By the second track, Digital Pressure – Aftershokk, I knew Paul was going to kill the dance floor and leave everybody with sore legs and feet from jumping and dancing all night.
Paul really put every ounce of energy into his set. He was right there with the crowd jumping up and down, throwing his hands into the air, and signing tons of autographs. It was really something seeing the German Trance Master himself work the crowd like he knows best. “We are Holding on to Nothing” was being sung by just about everybody on the dance floor as Paul dropped it fifth track into his set. Glow's bouncers did a good job of controlling the crowd and keeping most the traffic moving to and from the bathrooms and to the bar and back. Time of Our Lives was massive as you could tell by looking at everybody's faces that they were having the time of their lives. Paul really did a good job of mixing his set up with new productions and some classics. It was really a treat to hear Wolfsheim – Wundervoll twice in one night for the first time ever. This was the track with the German vocals that took everybody some time to ID and Paul just had to spoil us by playing it as his first encore. Paul's second encore was Time of Our Lives (PVD time to chill remix) but he wasn't done just yet. He spun for about another 30 minutes closing out with Paul Van Dyk vs. Second Sun – Crush (Vandit dub) which left me along with the rest of the crowd nothing but dead tired.
As the dance floor cleared out a bit, Edgar came back on for another hour and dropped a really wicked set to wrap things up. This will be a night I will never forget and it will go down in history as being one on my greatest night in the EMD scene. Big props to Panorama Production.
