When one man gets so many people to move, he has to be considered a leader of some kind. Ministry of Sound favorite Paul van Dyk, a German producer, remixer, and DJ, must therefore be one of the biggest leaders in the electronic-sound market. After bringing traditional song structure to hard Detroit techno in the early 1990s, van Dyk has since navigated his way through the global underground, setting terrifying armies of feet on the path to high bpm with his upmarket trance. (Germany's massive Love Parade is one of van Dyk's regular signature events.)

Known for his demanding work ethic, van Dyk has toured tirelessly for practically the past decade. This week, he's in Cleveland to spin dark, tricked-out European techno straight through the heart of the dance world. Joining van Dyk will be more than 15 local DJs, spinning in three rooms at Metropolis. It's a 12-hour party, one of the biggest events of its kind ever to hit town.
