December 12, 2003
The white label CD promo version of this album is one of the rarest Paul van Dyk releases (as it contains two tracks which didn't find their way onto this final version of this album). This album was Paul van Dyk's defining moment.
Seven Ways is both innovative and atmospheric. It set Paul van Dyk on the path to international fame.
It was definitely the album that would make or break him. Therefore, you can hear Johnny Klimek's and Mark Reeder's influences subliminally seeping throughout the entire album as they guide him along the way. The album was originally supposed to be mixed like a DJ mix, from 10" ascetates, but the idea was scrapped after Paul ruined them whilst playing them out.
Never credited for his work on any of his albums artistic designs, MFS label manager Mark Reeder gave Paul van Dyk his credibility as a serious and cultured artist. He was the person who not only 'discovered' Paul, but also managed to get the very best out of him as an artist and it was Reeder who chose and put together this particular albums tracklisting, as well as co-mastering it together with Wolfgang Ragwitz and adding to the general build and flow of this milestone album. Without a doubt, Paul van Dyks best work and arguably, the best trance album of the 90's.
