Two months after Paul van Dyk’s weeklong run at Beatport’s #1 with his Ummet Ozcan collaboration, ‘Come With Me’, the electronic music savant brings dancefloor citizens another clean-through-the-hoop slam-dunk! ‘Only In A Dream’ provides PvD fans old & new with another enticing hint as to what lies inside the forthcoming ‘The Politics Of Dancing 3’ ‘box’.
Having caught PvD’s ear in a remarkably short space of time, the co-production chair for ‘Dream’ is shared with bright-young-studio-things Jessus & Adham Ashraf. In keeping with their quickly propagating sounds, the Columbian/ Egyptian pairing channel trancier frequencies into the track.
Equipping ‘Only In A Dream’ with its embracive once-heard/never-forgotten vocal is English singer/song-writer Tricia McTeague. No stranger to music’s upper tier, she’s worked previously with esteemed producers like Nile Rodgers and Narada Michael Walden; has sung support for legends like Lionel Ritchie & Elton John and now grafts her Morissette/Vega-like expressionism, chapter & verse into Paul & Co’s, ‘Dream’.
Van Dyk’s own versions cover the homebase with the Original Mix ready to chuck the ear of radio, while its Club Mix compatriot zeroes straight to the heart of the dancefloor.
