Paul van Dyk @ Central Park, NYC
by Groovanauts Reporter: 08-28-2003

Good Evening Groovanauts I am taking some time out to write a review of last night. I had just finished a track list and I was asked to be a correspondent. So I will do my part to live up to it.

Yesterday started off rather nicely, me and Mandy(Girlfriend) picked up my brother and headed into the city to meet up with George. At around 4:30 we finally met up with Ruben and Olga and grabbed a drink. As we made our way up to the park and into the event our anticipation for what was to come was very high.

6:00 could not come soon enough as the man of the hour PVD came on he was greeted to a very warm reception. Now I thought he was going to get right into it, but no. We had to listen to 5-10 of annoying announcements, which is not something I am used to. When he finally started to play he put on a slower tune to get it moving because he had no opener.

Once he had the music flowing we were greeted to some nice beats from J.Timberlake, and the new song "The Crush." I really enjoyed that, and I was having a blast. I must say that the sound wasn't that good, unless you were really close in the armpit of the crowd, LOL. I don't know maybe just that it's not set up for a performance from a DJ, but that was my only problem with the whole event.

As the night progressed, e-bomb started to lose things (which we can't help) and Paul really got into it. He looked very happy up there and seemed to be having the most fun of everyone. I thought his track selection was pretty damn good, and as always his mixing was flawless. He dropped "As the Rush Comes" by Motorcycle, which is not something I expected, but definitely a pleasant surprise.

It got dark at around 7:45 and the crowd was treated to a very good light show, esp. because we weren't in a club. I did think that was cool.

Now me and George (e-bomb) did have an OMFG of the night. There was a great track he played within the first hour, but the trouble is it's an ID. Beautiful PVD style of track, real quality. I will give the overall setup of Summer Stage an 8. Big ups to Mike Bindra for getting him in such a mainstream location, very creative to put it outside. I like the fact that we didn't have any security hassle at all. Not too many bouncers, only around Paul. The setup and weather were definitely perfect.

Now more about the music, i thought Paul was great and i really liked it, but something was missing. It wasn't an all night. long Roxy bonanza, but definitely worth it. A very big thank you to everyone at Groovanauts we had such a good time.

Good night.
