â€œA wax statue at Madame Tussaudâ€™s. A memorabilia case at Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. Playing for a crowd of 200,000 on abeach in Brazil. Closing this yearâ€™s Coachella Saturday night after Red Hot Chili Peppers. Selling out two 25,000-ticket Amsterdam shows in less then two hours. It sounds like the resume of a classic rock band or red-hot pop star. But it actually belongs to a DJ/Producer: Dutch phenomenon TiÃ«sto.â€ Reuters, 2007
â€œDJ. For most people, the name conjures images of a mysterious figure hidden away in a booth high above the dance floor, spinning
the current crop of chart-topping tunes. International dance maestro TiÃ«sto is determined to change that image forever.â€ Pollstar, 2007
â€œIn this post-post rave world, how does a Dutch DJ demand such adoration that his fans drown out The Cureâ€™s encore at the Ultra Music Festival with repeated shouts of the manâ€™s name? From the sound of it, TiÃ«sto does it by giving the people all of what they want, and none of what they donâ€™tâ€¦No use fighting it then. Join in the chant.â€ URB, 2007
â€œTrance DJ TiÃ«sto dominated from his main stage position. All hands were in the air as he put his own stamp on Imogen Heapâ€™s
â€œHide and Seekâ€ and Mobyâ€™s â€œWe Are All Made of Starsâ€ Los Angeles Times, 2007
â€œTiÃ«sto in arena mode is like prog rock in its stadium days â€“ not to be missedâ€ LA

TiÃ«sto’s career is punctuated by landmark achievements â€“ the first DJ in the world to sell out a solo stadium event for over 25,000 people 2 nights in a row, he scored a number one hit with his single Traffic, the first instrumental track to reach the top spot in his homeland of Holland in 23 years. His remix of Delerium featuring Sarah McLachlan’s Silence was the first house track ever broadcast on daytime radio in
North America, (it became an international dancefloor anthem and also spent eight weeks in the UK top 10 chart). He played live in front of billions of people during the Parade of the Athletes at the official opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Athens. But despite his meteoric success, TiÃ«sto remains grounded about his achievements and clearly loves making and playing music above the accolades it brings.
As he continues to break new ground with his unique brand of electronic music, Tiesto’s production skills are getting noticed by some of the worlds foremost producers and artists. Having recently completed remixes for Justin Timberlake (Love Stoned) and Seal (The Right Life), Tiesto was asked to remix a track for indie darlings, Tegan & Sara. The resulting mix has been embraced by both TiÃ«sto’s die-hard fans and legions of indie fans, newly introduced to the DJ/Producer. The track has become a highlight on Tiesto’s current world tour and is on its way to becoming a bonafide classic.
