Tiesto: New album, new songs, new sound
Tiesto has been around the traps since 1997 and yet 17 years later he is still producing some noteworthy tracks both on his own and with some of his famous producer mates.
So what has made him stay on top of the dance scene after all these years? Well, he stays relevant by continually evolving his sound in a way which keeps his fans guessing.
His new album A Town Called Paradise is no different, with the man saying himself; “It’s not 2001 anymore... It would be boring for the fans if I made the same music for 15, 20 years.”
Set for release in June, the record oozes class and sophistication with the likes of Hardwell, Krewella, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool and Icona Pop all putting their hand up to help.
In a recent interview with Annie Mac for BBC’s Radio 1, Tiesto explained that although his roots will always be in trance, it is definitely something he is trying to do less of at the moment in an attempt to try other sounds on this album.
“It [trance] influenced by my earlier career... but the other part [of me] is very indie and rock-based dance music, like the Ladyhawke song. For now, I just don’t have that inspiration to make trance. I just can’t, and I hope people understand that.”
Whether it’s old school Tiesto or new wave Tiesto we still think you’re pretty damn awesome.
