Paul Van Dyk Reminds Us That “Everyone Needs Love”

Paul Van Dyk Reminds Us That “Everyone Needs Love”

“As much as I thought I understood love, I’ve learned considerably more these last nine months. In more ways than I could have imagined, love made a battle worth fighting. Had it not been there for me, I’m not sure I’d be here today.” – Paul Van Dyk


This year has been quite the incredible journey for legendary producer Paul Van Dyk. Recovering from the “fall heard ’round the world” was just the beginning. In true Paul Van Dyk fashion, his injuries certainly wouldn’t keep him down for too long. With a little medical attention and a whole lot of TLC from the trance universe, Paul was able to jump right back in the saddle. Our trance king was back and better than ever, making moves on the tour circuit all the while blowing our minds with some of his most incredible sets to date. Before long trance fans around the world were gifted with a couple of astoundingly well-received tracks that included a major collaboration with Chris Bekker on “Berlinition” and alongside Alex M.O.R.P.H. with “We Are”. So how does one of the most beloved names in trance close out an epic year in style? By producing a track that stands for everything he believes in called “Everyone Needs Love“.

To make the release of “Everyone Needs Love” as special as it could be, 3 versions have been produced. An original mix, the VANDIT club mix, and the Paul Van Dyk club mix. Yes, this track has a flavor for every type of trance addict on the planet and as we head out of an emotionally intense 2016 and into a fresh new year, Paul Van Dyk offers up a little reminder that now more than ever, everyone needs love.

All 3 versions of “Everyone Needs Love” are available now. You can purchase your copy on Beatport!

“Everyone Needs Love” Track Review:

After joining Ronald Van Gelderen in the studio, a beautiful collaboration unfolded. All it needed was the right vocalists. U.S. based singer/songwriters Gaelan & Eric Lumiere was the duo chosen to complete the package and the product is in my opinion, nothing short of dance floor perfection. The original track boasts the perfect blend of uplifting melody, consistent driving bottom end, hypnotic crescendos and a message you simply can’t argue with. For the club and VANDIT mixes, Paul revved up the tempo and pumped up the bass making the track perfect for the peak hours in the club as the energy is at its highest and the emotions are running strong. As I listen I have come to an obvious conclusion. When it comes to Paul Van Dyk, I never have to worry. Everything this man touches turns to gold. “Everyone Needs Love” is just proof once more that Paul Van Dyk will forever be the ruler of our beautiful trance kingdom.

Paul Van Dyk has hit the nail on the head with this track and as the new year kicks off let’s all make a promise to love more than we ever have. Who knows, the act of loving even a little bit more may be all that’s needed to change your world. With that I will leave you with the lyrics from Paul Van Dyk and Ronald Van Gelderen’s “Everyone Needs Love”.

Paul van Dyk & Ronald van Gelderen ft. Gaelan & Eric Lumiere – Everyone Needs Love – Lyrics

Are you out there?
Getting closer to me
‘Cause I need you
To love
I know you’re beautiful
‘Cause you’re in my dreams
But I need you
To touch

Are you out there?
Getting closer to me
‘Cause I need you
To love
I know you’re beautiful
‘Cause you’re in my dreams
But I need you
To touch

We’re looking for somebody to love, yeah
We won’t see who’s right in front, yeah
We’re all human beings, lost in dreams
When everyone needs love
We’re searching for a soul to touch, yeah
I can tell you there’s enough, yeah
We’re all worthy of a brighter sun
And everyone needs love
Everyone needs love
Yeah, everyone needs love
Everyone needs love
Everyone needs love
We’re looking for somebody to love, yeah
We won’t see who’s right in front, yeah
We’re all human beings, lost in dreams
When everyone needs love
We’re searching for a soul to touch, yeah
I can tell you there’s enough, yeah
We’re all worthy of a brighter sun
And everyone needs love
Everyone needs love
Yeah, everyone needs love
Everyone needs love
Everyone needs love
Everyone needs love

I know you’re beautiful
‘Cause you’re in my dreams
But I need you
To touch
