Paul van Dyk grew up in East Berlin, moved briefly to Hamburg, and then returned to Berlin after the fall of the Berlin Wall. He started working as a DJ in 1990, while his first gig came in 1991 in the underground techno club Tresor.

From 1991 to 1993, Van Dyk performed in the Turbine club alongside DJ Kid Paul, while in 1994, he released his debut studio album entitled “45 RPM”, mixing several genres including trance, house, techno, and dance. Two years later, Paul recorded “Seven Ways”, which was voted the No. 1 album by DJ Magazine readers, and in 1999, he composed music for a racing video game called “Wipeout 3”. In 2000, Van Dyke released his third studio album “Out There and Back”, and three years later, he made it to the movies in the Mexican fantasy adventure film “Zurdo” – his net worth was rising steadily.

Paul continued with “Reflections” (2003), which received a Grammy Award nomination for the Best Dance/Electronica Album, while the singles “Nothing But You”, “Connected”, “Time of Our Lives”, and “Crush” were among the most popular. He then made music for the video games “Need for Speed: Underground 2” and “Need for Speed: Underground – Rivals”.

Van Dyke composed music for the Australian film “One Perfect Day” (2004), and for the Canadian independent movie “It’s All Gone Pete Tong” (2004), about a DJ who goes entirely deaf. His involvement in commercially successful films such as “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” (2005) and “Into the Blue” (2005) starring Jessica Alba and Paul Walker, helped Van Dyke to increase his net worth significantly.

His fifth studio album “In Between” came out in 2007, and reached No. 115 on the Billboard 200, and No. 2 on the Top Electronic Albums and Top Heatseekers charts. Paul has collaborated with numerous artists including David Byrne of Talking Heads, while in 2008 he made a soundtrack for Christopher Nolan’s Oscar Award-winning blockbuster “The Dark Knight” starring Christian Bale, Heath Ledger and Aaron Eckhart, for which Van Dyk earned his only Grammy Award to date for the Best Soundtrack in a Motion Picture, while the film grossed over $1 billion, additionally improving Paul’s wealth. Van Dyk’s sixth studio album “Evolution“ came out in 2012, while most recently, he played at Amnesia in Ibiza, Luminosity Festival in the Netherlands, and Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.

Regarding his personal life, Paul van Dyk’s most intimate details such as marital status and the number of children are unknown, as he successfully manages to keep them out of the public eye.

In late February 2016, Van Dyke had an accident during the A State of Trance Festival in Utrecht and injured his leg and head after falling through the stage gap, but after a few months in the hospital, he was released in May.
