Paul van Dyk, World’s 4th Best DJ, Live in Manila

Natural Born Klubbers (NBK) with the support of telecommunications giant Smart zed brings back to Manila Germany's premier electronic artist and DJ, Paul van Dyk (ranked #4 in the world by DJ magazine), for an exclusive performance at 10 PM on Friday, November 16 in a much-awaited performance 2 years after his memorable local debut that remains as one of the hallmarks of the young but burgeoning Philippine club scene. This year's venue at the Casino Filipino Amphitheatre (across the street from the NAIA Terminal 1) is a cavernous air-conditioned hall with guarded parking for over 1,000 vehicles. Warming up the party with his own brand of progressive and Latin house is Manolet Dario, one of the best local DJs.

As is usual with all NBK events, the world-class booming sound system and awesome lighting will be provided by Radius. The party will showcase a fantastic laser show by British outfit Argon Animation. If that is still not enough, NBK has added massive visual effects stimulation by Japanese firm Solia into the creative mix and a potent brew will indeed assault everyone’s senses at the party. To quench the thirst of the multitudes who will troop to the event, a well-stocked bar will be set up by clubbing heavyweight seveneightorange while a 24 hour coffee shop will also be operating for hungry souls.

Paul is considered a superstar DJ widely adored by his thousands of fans in the United Kingdom and in his hometown of Berlin. His reputation is almost God-like as fans paint his logo on their bodies. Millions of clubbers worldwide have been enthralled by Paul’s best-selling albums containing club classics such as "Forbidden Fruit," "Another Way," "For An Angel," and Muzik and Ministry Magazines have hailed him as the "Best International DJ." His third album, "Out There and Back" received critical praise as one of the best albums of 2000. This tour coincides with the worldwide release of the Ministry of Sound's Politics Of Dancing compiled and mixed by Paul, with its simultaneous local release by Universal Records this November.

Big thanks go to the others who have played a vital role in bringing back Paul to the Philippines such as PAGCOR’s Casino Filipino, Lucky Strike, NU 107, Joey 92.3, 99.5 RT, Getasia, YSOnline, Oakwood Premier. Part of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the World Wide Fund for Nature, (WWF), as part of NBK’s commitment to preserve the country’s marine resources.
