Paul van Dyk has joined forces with Pierre Pienaar to release a brand new trance track with a strong underlying theme packed full of that blissful uplifting spirit called “Stronger Together”!
The second release to come out of Paul van Dyk’s wheelhouse in 2017, following his track “Touched by Heaven”, “Stronger Together” is a trance offering that brings two of the brightest minds in the industry together, developed in collaboration with VANDIT Records’ protege Pierre Pienaar, a thirty-three-year-old producer who comes to us from Namibia in Southern Africa. PvD’s debut collaboration with Pienaar, released on July 28, 2017, is a testament to trance music’s boundless influence which stretches beyond borders, races, and languages.
In a time where terrorism, ethnonationalism, and social exclusion, take over the media, Paul wanted to make it abundantly clear through his music that it’s an important time to come together in peace and unity. Despite the polarizing politics of the day, music will always be a unifying force; and trance music specifically has always and will forever be a champion of diversity and acceptance not only on the dance floor but in life in general.
Promoting peace has always been an essential aspect of Paul van Dyk’s career, who was awarded the Berlin Medal of Honor in 2006 in recognition of his charity work with underprivileged children in Germany and India. Beginning with the title “Stronger Together”, we are reminded that in a world of political and religious unrest, we can rise above it all and become unified under music, growing stronger together as the beautiful melodies link us all together as one on the dance floor.
“To me, only dance music has this power to reconcile the historic divisions of the planet like this.”
– Paul van Dyk
