He was the first DJ to be named number one by Mixmag in 2005. By 2008, he had sold over 3 million albums worldwide.A trance producer starting in the early 1990s, van Dyk quickly achieved popularity with his remix of "Love Stimulation" by Humate on the record label MFS in 1993 and with his hit single "For an Angel". Van Dyk is an avid trance lover to this day. He indicated in an interview that he ended up giving himself the Belgian-sounding stage name because he used to incorporate many Belgian dance records into his DJ sets in the early 1990s.Van Dyk is currently the host of "Vonyc Sessions with Paul" on Dash Radio.
