Paul Van Dyk says his biggest inspiration is life.
The DJ looks at all different aspects of the world when it comes to making music and loves seeing how much everything has changed in the past 15 years, with people becoming more reliant on technology.
Speaking about his new album 'Evolution', Paul said: "My biggest inspiration for my music is life in general and life has changed drastically in the last 10, 15 years, electronic music has gone from being a small subculture to the biggest music culture in the world. I mean we didn't even have facebook or twitter ten years ago and this has drastically changed things and these changes obviously have an effect on how are lives are and the music. As dance music is my biggest inspiration I thought calling it 'Evolution' leaned to bring that all together so it doesn't really have much to do with myself personally more the world around."
Paul also says he's not worried about the future of dance music following the recent explosion of stars in America.
He said: "Well the thing is I believe if people stay true to themselves and they keep the music true to them then they don't have to worry because they are the core audience for real electronic music."
