Paul van Dyk and Pierre Pienaar have released a new song, a blissfully uplifting track entitled ‘Stronger Together’. This is the second release that van Dyk has put out in 2017, following his track ‘Touched by Heaven’. ‘Stronger Together’ was made in collaboration with VANDIT Records’ protege Pierre Pienaar, a 33 year old producer by ways of Namibia in Southern Africa. PvD’s collaboration with Pienaar is a testament to trance music’s boundless influence which stretches beyond borders, races and languages.
In times of terror, ethno-nationalism, social exclusion, transgender ban and climate change – Paul wanted to make it abundantly clear through his music that now more than ever, it’s an important time to come together in peace and unity. Despite the polarizing politics of the day, music will always be a unifying force; and trance music specifically has always championed diversity and acceptance both on the dance floor but in life generally. Promoting peace has always been an essential aspect of van Dyk’s career, who was awarded the Berlin Medal of Honor is 2006 in recognition of his charity work with underprivileged children in Germany and India.
