Tiesto's career is punctuated by landmark achievements - 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, Tisto remains grounded about his achievements and clearly loves making and playing music above the accolades it brings.
Born in Holland, Tisto became a DJ because he 'liked to share music with other people'. In 1997 Tisto, along with Arny Bink, formed Black Hole Recordings, the label that launched the hugely acclaimed Magik, In Search Of Sunrise, and Nyana mix compilations. The label grew to such proportions that in 2001 Tisto started a sub-label, Magik Muzik. Though known primarily for his pioneering contributions to the trance scene, Tisto's style is now a mix of everything: trance, house, techno - it's the best of all that the dance world has to offer.
Tiesto is currently experimenting with new sounds in the studio, and writing more vocals himself. The most recent result of this new approach of course is his latest album 'Elements of Life', which sky rocketed to the highest positions in today's charts. The future for Tisto promises yet further success, both as the solo artist he has become and the DJ we know him to be. The long anticipated 'In Search of Sunrise 7' and the 'Elements of Life World Tour' DVD have been released and there will be more remixes, definitely, he agrees
He genuinely enjoys his achievements, but Tisto keeps both feet on the ground: 'It's hard to look too far into the future. Every couple of months it seems that something new, unexpected and exciting is happening!'
